Here comes the rain - James Oakwood
The Vocals could use a little tune up, maybe i'll listen later through my million dollar head phones, the rest is just perfect Andy, I was waiting for something to come out and really grab me but it never happened no real catchy hook for me sorry. Overall Enjoyed dude
Good luck in the competition Andy. James
On my second listen now. Really like this bud. Thought the backing vox were just right and underpinned your main vox well. Love the beatley m/8 at about 3 mins. The recording is great as usuall. Some of the jazzy changes through me a little but not enough to put me off....An excellent entry i recon.........Good luck
Are you one of those people who seems to bring bad weather with them everywhere they go? Believe it or not, I know a few people like that "oh, don;t invite him/her. It'll ... down raining!" LOL Classic Oakwood! Slightly sombre tone, but mostly tongue-in-cheek humour, and the cynical navel-gazing lyrics are offset by the warm up-beat tune. Good luck! R8d M8! :)
If only.....so dry here in the mid-section of America, we could use a few drops of rain! Your title drew me in; your arrangement, performance and production kept me there - mesmerized. Beautiful song, Andy! I'm hearing more of a Becker and Fagan influence (Steely Dan), the vocals, however, are uniquely James Oakwood. Bring on the rain! Good luck in the competition!
Absolutely brilliant! It grabs you from the first note! And the modulation of the song really creates diversity! I instantly think of Mark Knopfler when I hear this! Rated!!
