How Much Further is the latest single by Birmingham’s very own Stealth. Now this is an insatiable tune which is drenched in plenty of soulful goodness. This number is a big bluesy anthem, co-written and produced by two-time Grammy nominated Michael Angelo. The single has been getting strong support from BBC Introducing and has also been featured in Hollyoaks.
When I first listened to How Much Further my mind was literally blown. Played at an infuriating pace, this single is one which literally had me hooked from the get go. Stealth’s powerhouse vocals were smooth like butter and at the same time they oozed plenty of soulful vibes. Those delightful lyrics were pure perfection, based on this one song Stealth does have something really good going for him.
Regarding the music video Stealth says, “For the ‘How Much Further’ video the director (Sam Taylor) and I really wanted to represent the frustration that is at the heart of the song. The dancers are portraying normal people and their everyday frustrations. On a secondary level there’s an element of sign language throughout the video, and some signing has also been incorporated into the dance moves. I learned to sign the entire song, representing the fact that for too long the powers that be have been deaf to our needs”.
Now Stealth hasn’t only just stepped into the limelight, last year saw him drop the debut Intro EP which spawned the singles Judgement Day and I Don’t Need Your Love. This EP saw Stealth championed by Radio 1, Radio 2, BBC 6Music and BBC Introducing, while he gained a wealth of high profile press support too.
Stealth has also firmly laid his mark Stateside, following the inclusion of his single ‘Judgement Day’ in the dramatic closing scenes of Suits. The song has now clocked up well over 6 MILLION plays across YouTube, Spotify and Apple Music. The release of the Intro EP also saw Stealth enter the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart at No.2 in the UK and No.3 in the US.
