An interesting exploration of this eternal theme. Thank you for your comments on my vocals - I'm glad you liked them.
Love Wednesday x
Fracking love the guitar sound on this Rich - the bashing of the chords and the chiming harmonics. Emotive stuff. Really well done. Thumbs
My father has said that the universe is governed by the three C’s—Choice, Chance, and Change. Change has always distressed me since my earliest days, whether something major like the loss of a loved one or minor like the stranger next door moving away. So you should know how much I appreciate your positive take on this sore reality. I shall draw strength from your message.
Rich, this song is yet another example of why I think you can convey passion vocally better than most other singers on this site (and that is saying a lot, considering the legions of talent here). Again I can hear touches of Holly Johnson in these vox, which I think I mentioned on another of your songs? Thank you also, for commenting on one of mine with very nice words recently. Please check your FB and forum messages dude - been trying to get in touch for a while. :)
Think the production on this is really good. The back round pads/strings are nicely layered. The vocals are good and the guitar sits nicely in the mix. Not much to add. Nice track
Wow there are some big slaps on the geetar. Prob not too big to complain about but they made me sit up. I like the dynamics of course; not just the music but your vox. I know you use a fair bit of compression but the timbre change on ya vox from soft to loud is great Rich. Some nice note bending on vox too. Thumzup dude
Mesmerizing song! Loads of hopeful expression abounds here. Some change has to be addressed...but...Dont change too much matey...it just wouldnt be the same! keith
Wonderfully hypnotic Rich, i just closed my eyes and went with the music, lovely. Thumbs, Gibbo
Simply a beautiful song with a wonderful message Rich. The inevitability of it all and the beauty within...
Your love of singing shines on this one Rich; positively reeks with contentment. Well-deserved I have to add after several listens....takes me to a nice place
Don't know why kept thinking of Kevin Coyne listening to this one. Nice guitar work, like riding a wave as it takes up and down. And wonderful lyrics as per. .......David
nothing like coming back to the studio...fresh...and change..transitions...the energy here is so apropos...lively and bold...an affirmation..and celebration ...loved the lyrics...a oneness in moving from and towards...loved those snappy twangs..punctuating the thesis you present. ..the Chi is moving....nudged along by those background harmonies :)
Hi Rich, Yes, its such an excellent song, totally beautiful vocals, heartfelt lyrics, but even better the flow of this music, it's a salve to my ears and brain, and soul! I love the Celtic quality in your superb guitar work here.it really has the power to transport me!
Very fitting for you...Rich...no one could ever doubt that you love to sing...about every facet of life., You do have the capacity to sing about everything and anything in utter empathy. Guitar is rather beautiful here too
Great topic for song! You always know the right things to address in song or so it seems to me! Love this live sounding recording because it is! One thing I want you should know, and that is, I wouldn't change much in your direction musically currently cause' I want more like this in me ears! -Mike
loved music at first breath. Memories, far back. Music involved everything. Sounds, beats, how I felt. When music I was attracted to, broke in, it was worth waking up for. It influenced my personality. Who I would like, love and where I would hang. Music surrounded everything in my reality. It was the muse to get me along and hang on. Always going on. That's just the way it is. To what, I don't know. I just hope someone out there is better off for something I did or didn't do, said, or sang and boy, singing saved my life more times then I can count. I always had that when I had absolutely nothing else I could count on, even myself.
If you'd like a download, just pm me and i'll send you one.
this song really reflects on where we are, whats important about life. the arrangement, the guitar, vocals, all really hit the mark. this is one of the greats.
Your voice is so cool. You have these "cracks" in the words and it doesn't matter... in fact it makes you "real." I don't know if that makes sense to you, but to me – trust me, it's good! The music has a very lifting feeling to it. And again, your music hypnotizes me to listen to the whole song not once, but twice. THEN, I want to get a copy, and comment... it's a whole thing that I go through
