Is unconditional love truly unending or are there limits that people can be pushed to? This is what Chavis Chance explores in his new single ‘Call Me’ while telling a lost friend that he is there with a shoulder to cry on.

Touching on topics such as friendship, depression and the unending sorry of loving an addict he wraps it all up in a somewhat cynical message of love and hope.

Moving forward while looking back, he has a timeless quality to his music that makes it easy to connect with and stand out in an ocean of songs.

There is an interesting play of emotion in his performance as he reassures you that he is there, but there is an undertone of sorrow to his voice. This swing of emotion is compounded by the melody.
At times, the melody is soft and warm as it makes you feel that everything can get better. This turns into something larger that gives you more hope before you drop down into sorrowful notes. The arrangement of this track is unbelievable as it leaves you feeling a myriad of emotions.
