Suave's New Single "Heaven" Available on iTunes!

Independent soul artist, Suave, has released the first single from his latest project, The Feel Good Movement, on iTunes!

"Heaven," a groovy, uplifting track featuring funky, Jazz infused production by Miles Felix, is Suave's ode to anyone and everything that make moments of paradise-on-earth possible.

"Your Heaven can be your spouse, your child, your passion," Suave explains. "Whatever makes you happiest and gets you through your day, this song celebrates that."

Upbeat yet smooth, this addition to The Feel Good Movement fits in perfectly among other original tunes meant to transport listeners back to a time when music provided a safe haven and respite from the stresses of everyday life. "I just wanted to create something that everyone can enjoy. No barriers, no demographics; if you love good music, then this single, the entire Feel Good Movement, is for you."
