‘Someone Like You’ is the uplifting new track by award winning singer/songwriter Bradley McCaw. Unapologetically upbeat, this country rock inspired duet featuring the silky tones of Australian Recording artist PAULINI, might just be just what the doctor ordered.
Fresh from her performance on the nationally televised ‘Eurovision – Australia Decides’, PAULINI lends her stunning vocal to this track created by one of Australia’s most versatile and brightest songwriters.
Produced by Musicians Hall of Fame Louie Shelton (Jackson 5, Lionel Ritchie) and featuring bass legend Nathan East (Eric Clapton, Daft Punk) this track has recaptured a timeless and old school sound for the modern way of life.
“PAULINI’S vocal is effortless. There’s a power and a playfulness that takes the song to a new place. It’s a positive love song, with is kind of rare for modern radio. Inspired by all the old school duets I have sung along to in my car!” – Bradley McCaw
Bradley and PAULINI recorded ‘Someone Like You’ in Queensland in 2021. Originally written for one male singer, the song remained unfinished for almost a year, until they realised what was missing.
Bradley says, “Duets bring together two different voices to make something special. Duets have a different energy, combining two unique artists at the top of their form from different genres, and that makes a song take off into unexpected places.”
