Texas-bred songwriter Zachary Knowles is just starting to get some much deserved attention. Signed under the prestigious record label FADER, Knowles is all set to drop his forthcoming EP titled Magnolia. His newest offering from this EP is called ‘Cherry Wine’.
‘Cherry Wine’ is minimal and atmospheric acoustic ballad. It features warm tapey guitar, a heartbeat kick, and touches of ambiance. It’s a beautiful song which highlights Zachary’s smooth R&B voice. On the lyrics, Knowles explains: “The meaning behind ‘cherry wine’ is super personal. I wrote about what life looked like before I was dating the girl I love. Before we started dating I was crazy about her (at the age of 14 haha that’s crazy to say) but didn’t know if she felt the same. I wanted to capture what that time of my life felt like. ‘cherry wine’ is most definitely a love song, and in the end it all worked out. I’m happy I’m able to share this moment in time. It’s a really special song.”
‘Cherry Wine’ is a great bittersweet sunny-day listen and definitely worth checking out.
