Review: "More Than I Am" - Faith Marie
Everyone feels down sometimes; it’s in our nature to have that emotion. We have a darkness that forms over our heads, taking over ourselves, and we’re unable to control it. Faith Marie’s single, “More Than I Am” is about fighting those inner demons and letting them go. Those demons shape us into someone we’re not just for the sake of others and harm us in the process. But why should we act a certain way for people? Why should we let our demons control us and make us vulnerable? We shouldn’t let it manipulate us because of how damaging it can be. It can make us lose ourselves and feel a sense of unworthiness; so learning to take the time to heal will help us mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Faith Marie’s “More Than I Am” sends a powerful message through her lyrics in which she uses her passionate vocals to deliver. The music itself is a steady, soft, and upbeat soundscape. The lyrics and music are slightly contrasted to keep it balanced, complimenting each other with its influential meaning and bright tune. Faith has a beautiful voice that she's able to control using different methods of singing to diverse this piece. The bridge of the track speaks to the listener which makes it feel more personal and intimate; this leads to her hitting higher notes and using riffs that will bring you goosebumps. It gives more of a sensation reaction than just listening; it shows Faith’s dedication and purpose when delivering this song to make us feel a certain way. The instrumental at the end gives off a spacy ambience with its heavenly sounds.
