Jorge Avila’s Heart of Coal Single Review

Artist: Jorge Avila

Single: ‘Heart of Coal’

Fueled by an artistic versatility that features a unique blend of smooth rock vocals and polished acoustic bass lines, accomplished New Jersey-based singer-songwriter, Jorge Avila is once again proving his ease of forming an emotional connection with his listeners on his recently released single, ‘Heart of Coal.’ The timely, relatable lyrics are presented in the musician’s signature baritone vocals, which are set against the commanding ebb and flow of his acoustic guitar, which is notably the only instrument that’s featured on the track.

On his new self-reflective symphonic rock ballad, which will be featured on his upcoming ’90’s grunge-Spanish rock-R&B-inspired album, ‘Piel Pecado,’ Avila embarks on a heartfelt journey that offers him enlightenment over his life-long internal struggles. While he does have some regrets over how he conducted himself in the past, the musician passionately expresses that he has learned to appreciate the path he now walks on.

‘Heart of Coal’ also impresses with the singer-songwriter’s remarkable, profound instrumental skills. His alluring vocals are set against soothing bass guitar riffs, which are superbly highlighted during the tune’s memorable intro and outro. The gripping strumming of the acoustic guitar is intoxicating, which proves his natural ability to create a naturally wild and tender sound

The half-Ecuadorian, half-Argentinian Avila has powerfully proven that drawing from his personal experiences can create a surprisingly emotional and relatable narrative in a riveting rock song like ‘Heart of Coal.’ The uplifting, relatable narrative in the contemplative lyrics, as well as the calming, distinct strumming of the acoustic guitar, will undoubtedly inspire fans of all genres to begin their own process of healing after heartache.
