Alcester's Euan Blackman gearing up for release of latest song

LIVERPOOL-based singer-songwriter Euan Blackman from Alcester will release his new single ‘I’m Not Scared’ on Friday, March 25.

It is Blackman’s fourth single following the successful release ‘HighHighHigh’ which was praised by Radio 1 DJ Jack Saunders and achieved more than 10,000 streams.

‘I’m Not Scared’ begins intimately with Euan’s signature soft layered vocals accompanied with his guitar.

As the track progresses, the production builds fuller with electronic elements supporting the folk-core.

‘I’m Not Scared’ features backing vocals from rising folk artist Cooza, an artist with more than two million streams on Spotify.

“I’m Not Scared is mainly about living in a less than ideal housing situation,” said Euan.

“I use a lot of metaphors to do with ghosts and feeling haunted to explain the anxiety-fuelled-sleepless nights experienced.”

As an independent artist, Euan has built a loyal audience of fans on TikTok where he has 11,000 followers and growing and more than 2.5million views.

His music has been praised by some of his heroes including acclaimed folk artist Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Radio 1’s Jack Saunders and Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda.

He was recently nominated for best solo artist in the Liverpool Love for Music awards amongst the likes of Jamie Webster and Zuzu.
