We’ve been fans of Chris Bandi so we’re were so excited to see that his song “Man Enough Now” will receive a new life with the brand-new radio edit released on October 11th, 2019. Bandi sings a tale of self-growth, as he expresses regret over giving up someone special due to his past lack of maturity. From the moment the song begins, the honest and self-reflective lyrics blend with the raw acoustic guitar to captivate listeners into a sentimental state.
The lyrics particularly hit home during the chorus, when Bandi belts out the gut-wrenching words: “It’s too bad, we happened when we did / ‘Cause I’ve learned a lot about life since then / I can’t go back / Girl I hate that”
The 28-year-old St. Louis native takes pride in his journey to becoming a man and sorrowfully repents hurting someone on the road to getting there. As the song continues, the instrumentals build along with the conviction in the lyrics and in Bandi’s voice. “So if one more chance is somethin’ that you ever think about / I’m man enough now”
In this final line, the singer-songwriter wears his heart on his sleeve in the purest way. He pleads for one more chance, though understands he may not deserve it due to his past actions. This vulnerable tune is infectiously catchy, and we can’t wait to hear it on the radio. We’re hoping that this release means more music in the near future from Bandi.
