IMG_9269  Dorothy, from the Wizard of Oz once quoted “There’s no place like home.”  After the last night I could not agree more.  After a long night of mild food poisoning I was pretty much ready to skip out of my dorm room and go home.  If you guys haven’t already guessed, tonight’s song is called Home by Gabrielle Aplin

This British singer-songwriter was born in the village of Sutton Benger in Wiltshire, England.  At the age of eleven Aplin was given her first guitar.  Soon she started drawing influences from Bruce Springsteen, Joni Mitchell, and Bob Dylan.  After studying music at City of Bath College, she began to attract a youtube fanbase.  Some of her most popular songs are “Home”(tonight’s song), covers from Celo Green and Katy Perry, and “The Liar and the Lighter.”

Home is by far my favorite song by Aplin.  The true brilliance of the song is the simplicity of the instruments and the descriptive yet relatable lyrics.  Her song has the rare quality of humanity in it.  She has the talent of creating honest and heartwarming lyrics, which is a rare talent.  Her use  of the right amount and tone of guitar, piano, and drums to help contrast her melodic voice is something to be recognized for.  This song is for all music lovers alike.  Her song will truly make you feel like your at home.
