An original pop track from up and coming songwriter Riez Purba, ‘Heartbreak Never Felt So Sweet’ is a lush pop tune that comes as a ready made radio friendly hit. It’s rare in these cynical times to hear independent artists making strong pop music, with most ‘singer-songwriters’ preferring to go the serious acoustic route. But Riez Purba has hit the nail on the head with this one.
With any luck, you will be hearing even more from Purba soon, as he’s making his way through the rounds of the Open Mic UK competition for 2014. Next weekend will see him perform/compete at their regional showcase in Newcastle (Riez is from Sunderland) and he’ll be hoping to get through to the next round. If he can make progress, he’ll be working with a team who have launched successful careers in the industry before, and he’ll have every chance of getting heads to turn for his brand of dance pop.
