Used To Be is a tremendously touching effort that showcases the vocal range of Daniel Shaw. An alluring piano line is matched well with booming drums to make a beat that will tattoo itself deep into the minds and hearts of listeners. The narrative that Shaw lays down here is something that has fallen out of love will understand. The ability of Shaw to come forth and reinvigorate the pop of the late 1990s with a luxurious production and taut instrumentation vaults him into the highest echelon of pop performers. With just enough of a rock hook present here, there’s no doubt in our mind that Shaw’s latest will be a rotation mainstay throughout the summer. We last checked out Shaw in December 2018; Don’t Leave Me Now.
