Screengrab via YouTube

In the new video for “Shine on Rainy Day,” Brent Cobb takes us inside the Sam Phillips Studio in Memphis, Tenn. and shows off his effortless vocals and impeccable songwriting.

This simple yet substantial music video shifts from the sound board to Cobb, simply standing behind a microphone. The moment the singer-songwriter opens his mouth, viewers are transported by his impeccable voice and intricate narratives.

The song is the title track from his 2016 album, which we proudly dubbed “the best debut album we’ve heard in a long time.”

Brent Cobb’s “Shine on Rainy Day” Lyrics:

I’ve loved strangers, dodged hills and dangers,
Searching for my own little peaceful countryside to the slick city streets.
I’ve missed my hometown,
Been high and low down,
Learned every which way of the game,
Somethings do and some don’t change.
It’s safe to say I’m still crazy over you,
Your love gets me through when I’m stuck in life’s crazy glue.
Ain’t it funny how a little thunder can make a man start to wonder,
Should he swim or just go under?

Ain’t it funny how you learn to pray,
When your blue skies turn grey,
When there’s nothing left to say.
Shine on rainy day.

A friend once told me, he said, ‘Boy you sound so lonely.
All those cheating-leaving-done me wrongs,
Have you ever heard of a happy song?’
Offended I sat down my glass,
I smiled and let the moment pass.
‘Tab’s on me if you think I’m lying,
Laughing ain’t a pleasure till you know about crying.’

Ain’t it funny how a little thunder can make a man start to wonder,
Should he swim or just go under?
Ain’t it funny how you learn to pray,
When your blue skies turn grey,
When there’s nothing left to say.
Shine on rainy day.

Shine on rainy day.

Ain’t it funny how a little thunder can make a man start to wonder,
Should he swim or just go under?
Ain’t it funny how you learn to pray,
When your blue skies turn grey,
When there’s nothing left to say.
Shine on rainy day.
