"Me and Johnny go years back, long before songwriting, so it was so good to sing on this," said Saige.
Burgeoning songwriter and producer Johnny Bourke, a past performer on the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions has returned with a brand new release. Bourke's fresh new sound comes in the form of ‘Be Someone’, featuring rising Irish alt-pop artist Saige (also a Lockdown Sessions alum).
The pop-funk offering is bursting with a feel-good, radio-ready nature and dynamic energy. Johnny and Saige's silky vocals layer seamlessly above a groove-laden rhythm, with funk-fuelled synths, a punchy bass line, and a standout guitar lick. “The song is about embracing your relationship and being fully committed, to love unconditionally and not let go,” says the young singer-songwriter.
'Be Someone’ is the perfect pre-summer anthem, sure to serve as a taster of what is to come for Johnny Bourke.
