    It's always fun for us when we find talented new artists, and our latest First Look is just one of those. London-based singer and songwriter Wayne Gidden made some waves when he wrote the song "Whatever I Choose I Lose” for the band Fried. And though he was a fan of hip hop, he wanted to step out in front with a soul music project, and that's what he's delivering with his album, Half A Step From Falling Down

    Wayne says about his first single: The song "Anywhere But Here" was written about a very close friend, that I grew up with. We took different paths and eventually, he was sent to prison for a year. During that period, his first son was born. On visiting him, he was full of regret and had made the decision to turn his life around, once he was released. He did just that, and is now a successful businessman and educator in his community, as well as being a devoted Father. In the video, I wanted to depict prominent people that I admire, who either spent time in prison, or who fought for change.

    We think you'll like the video for "Anywhere But Here," so we've made it our newest SoulTracks First Look. Check it out below and tell us what you think!
