Plested knows a thing or two about constructing massive, magnificent pop songs.
The songwriter cut his spurs at one half of Chasing Grace, before becoming an in-demand studio boffin.
Big hitters such as Tom Walker and Lewis Capaldi are knocking at his door, with Plested using 2019 as a place to focus on his own material, his own hopes and desires.
Recently selling out London's Lexington venue through word of mouth, he's a star-in-the-making, with each new release bowling over fans.
Tender new single 'Either You Love Me Or You Don't' has that universal quality, with his touching vocal allied to a perfectly pitched lyric.
The arrangement is super-smooth, with just a hint of backing vocals in there to lift Plested's performance up to the heavens.
