Raised in Saint Joseph, Michigan, Bucholtz is a truly talented artist inspired by musicians like Adele, P!nk, Natasha Bedingfield, KT Tunstall and more. He’s currently settled in Charleston, South Carolina where he shares his own brand of amazing musical creations.
Jumping atop his piano, Fairytale Shadowland kicks off with playful keys and sparkles throughout. The title track’s sing-along vibe is the perfect backdrop for a vibrant Sunday morning.
Room to Breathe, on the other hand, explores the moody territory of breaking up and letting go. Bucholtz’s expresses himself through heart-felt verses and an earthly, stripped down delivery. What makes this track stand out from any other break-up song is the incorporation of electronic tunes after an almost-acapella beginning.
FiftyFirst completes the EP and finishes the emotional subject matter that has been spread throughout the album. It contains well-written lyrics and piano keys flawlessly played to perfection.
Fairytale Shadowland is an intricate collection backed-up with accessible soundscapes. There is something beautiful in its piano solos drawing you in with so much passion. It’s only a matter of time until Austin Bucholtz finds his place in the music scene.
