Cal-l Jonel Releases Set Me Free As Free Download

Contemporary music artist Cal-l Jonel has released a new single ‘Set Me Free’. The former CL6 singer has released ‘Set You Free’ as a FREE DOWNLOAD ahead of an EP later on this year.

‘Set You Free’ is inspired by making the best out of bad situations and letting go of things that keep us bound.

“’Set You Free’ was sparked by a personal experience that I had been carrying for a while and hadn’t let go of,” Cal- l Jonel explains. “The song challenges us to let go of past hurts, pains and life-hindering experiences so that we don’t hinder our lives and potentially ruin relationships. Facing the truth will set you free. Writing this song was a therapeutic way for me to process my own personal past hurt and to let go.”

The result is a soulful, stripped-down song, in a similar vein to the current batch of singer-songwriters who straddle the gap between Soul and Folk such as Michael Kiwanuka. One man, one guitar, one universal truth… put them together and the result is simple but dynamic.

While ‘Set Me Free’ serves as Cal-l Jonel’s solo debut, spending 11 years as a part of CL6 a Soulful Gospel group who became popular on the British Gospel circuit releasing an EP, the critically acclaimed ‘Maxi’ in 2008.

After CL6 decided to call it a day, Cal-l lonel put music on the back burner to focus on his family (he and his wife have two children, a daughter who’s almost two years old and five-month-old son) but music was never that far away. “I’ve picked up a few instruments and have been honing my songwriting skills,” he says. “It’s a great passion of mine.” With the occasional gig here and there, Cal-I lonel has spent the last year and a bit writing and recording material.
