Ropes - Titus Makin |

This came through my email and at a loss of what to review today, and with the intention of trying to add more male artists to my blog, I decided I might as well review this one. It's really catchy and one I'm glad was sent to me. I am so far behind on my blogs, it is literally ridiculous, but as I've done before, I'm determined to catch up, so here goes nothing. This song is a grower and one that I end up loving the more I hear it! Watch Titus Makin sing passionately as he brings some class, style, and emotion to this performance-based music video for his song "Ropes".

Titus Makin is best known for his acting roles. He has been in TV shows Glee, Pretty Little Liars, and Star-Crossed. As well as A Cinderella Story: Once Upon A Song. He currently plays character Caleb Matthews on Hulu's The Path. Yet, as this music video shows, he's not just an actor, he can sing too. He's starting to focus more on his music career, and I honestly love what he has released so far, although this is by far my favourite at the moment. I can't wait to see what else he plans on releasing in the future.

The music video is pretty basic, which is suggestive of a low-budgeted visual. Regardless, we've seen plenty of artists turn it out, and that is exactly what Titus Makin does.

The opening scene is very soulful as Titus Makin walks towards the camera. The light emblazons him, making him interesting to watch from the get-go. Unfortunately, we don't keep with this scene, and we're soon transported into a studio where he is backed up by two dancers and four musicians playing instruments.

This scene has a much more stage performance vibe - and, definitely, gives us a taste of his energy on the stage. He does bring a great spirit to this scene, but it fails to keep the attention of the viewer; I think it's something to do where it's set. Regardless, I'm glad it is intercut with other scenes.

I adore the tunnel backdrop, he fully brings the song to life here; he may just be an outdoors person, or maybe the fresh air definitely gave him that spark.

Overall, it's a pretty good visual, all things considered. As the ending draws near, there is more time shown of the studio setting, that we aren't so keen on. However, he looks like he is having the time of his life recording the music video, and that is always great to see.
