A splash of James Taylor here, a dash of John Mayer there, and the mixture you’re left with might remind you Ned Moss. The Londoner singer-songwriter pairs pensive and simplistic yet resonant vocal melodies with a cornucopia of guitar textures to create “When Will I See”- a dimly-lit reflection on self-worth, gratitude for what we have, and contemplating the relativity of struggle and hardship. Moss’s vocals are reserved yet present, allowing warm harmonies in later sections to provide a timely lift. An acoustic guitar plays Americana rhythms and chord progressions that sound straight out of a James Taylor anthology, being joined by a simple kit and bass to round out this coffeeshop anthem. However, it’s in the later stages of “When Will I See” that Moss gives us our final payoff in the form of soulful electric guitar melodies with lots of feeling and a touch of blues. Moss layers his six-string color palette with a variety of colors, ending the tune with a shimmering mix of metallic harmonics, blues licks, acoustic strums, and tasteful bass guitar. What a picture it all paints.
