Entitled “Lost To The Night,” acclaimed musician C. SHIROCK’s stunning cinematic visuals tell the heart-wrenching story of waiting for a loved one to return, not knowing when or if they ever will.
Co-written and produced by Thomas Doeve, the track was written about his brother, who he hadn’t seen or talked to in a few years. C. SHIROCK shares, “He told me the heartbreaking story about how his brother had disappeared and abruptly cut off communication with his family after suffering from his experiences in the military. As we talked and processed the situation, we started asking, ‘if we had a chance, what would we say to someone we’ve lost?'”
C. SHIROCK was born in the United States and has since lived in both the Philippines and Scotland, before relocating to Nashville, TN to further study music. Coming from a family of creatives and musicians, he grew up the oldest of four, playing piano, writing and composing from a very early age. His mother was a professional ballet dancer, his father an avid guitarist and his grandfather an accomplished jazz pianist.
The cultural influences of C. SHIROCK’s upbringing, both musically and melodically, can be heard in his latest releases. Seamlessly blending his refined melodic and pop sensibility with years of classical training and hints of Phil Collins, Prince, and The Cure, C. SHIROCK has established a defined and modern sound. After going through major life changes and transitions, C. SHIROCK decided it was time for a change of identity and took the leap from playing in his band SHIROCK, to going it alone. “I viewed it as a continuation or an evolution or sorts. It’s been incredibly freeing and liberating to chase whatever turns me on…to create without inhibition”, reveals the musician.
Continuing to carve out his unique place with this new project, C. SHIROCK describes his songwriting as vulnerable and honest, “whether it’s capturing a feeling, or telling a specific story, it’s always based on my own life. If it doesn’t come out of my own emotional experience, it feels inauthentic and I don’t feel connected to it”.
