Following the annual departure of Valentines Day, South Wales artist, John Adams, releases the intimate visuals for his song “Things That Make You Beautiful.” This song is a beautiful tribute to the artist’s wife to-be at the time and how it encapsulates all of the things Adams finds beautiful about her.”When I was writing this song I was planning my wedding, my wife to-be was starting to come to terms with the fact she was 30 this year and was worried that her looks ‘may fade’. When I started to think about the ‘Things That Make You Beautiful’ there wasn’t any mention of any visual appearance, and it was all characteristics that were ‘inside’ and ones that wouldn’t change over time. I tried to mirror this concept in the music video and try to question our first impressions that are always based on appearance.”
The singer/songwriter shows touches of influences in sound ranging from Sam Smith, Charlie Puth, James Blunt and David Gray. Adams first appeared in 2011 on the X Factor singing ‘Cannonball’ by Damien Rice. Receiving a handful of accolades for his rendition, he was credited for getting ‘Cannonball’ back into the charts, making history as the first time a song had re-entered at a higher position than the original release.
Adams forthcoming EP is due out in June/July 2017. Take a look at the first single off the EP “Things That Make You Beautiful” below:
