We have written about Luke Beling before (here and here). He is a child of South Africa's Sunshine Coast, now living happily on the big island of Hawaii. His music delivers a thoughtful blend of pop-friendly acoustic folk and luscious production work, balanced against a simmering brew of spirituality and percipience. For his latest single 'The Light Is Coming,' Luke has teamed up with Joseph Pennell for a soothing reminder that life is lived best in harmony with the past, the present, and the future. If we learn little else as children, it should yet remain that tomorrow—somehow—is always beautiful. Once we lose that, we've lost something irretrievable.
This song feels like a celebration of the kind of person who refuses to give up on the nobility of existence; and who does their part every day, however small, to demonstrate that there is always hope for those who truly seek it. Just as Luke and Joe became good friends through the course of creating this song together, with it, they hope to highlight the beauty of collaboration. If there is a single message from this song, may it be simply that no one need ever be alone. As humans we are meant to be there for each other. Let us never lose sight of that fact.
