demon in my ear
Very cool song Rich. I guess everybody involved in music over the last 50 years has a Tinnitus issue or a 'Demon In The Ear' Another remarkable vocal performance from you and the song constructed so tastefully.
Another good song Rich. Wish i could sing like this with such emotion. I really like the strings and the backing vocals. Like the abrupt end too.
another great vocal track... such power.. and if having demons in your head creates this.. well I could live with that... good one..
as always, a brilliant piece of creative songwriting, performing,arranging, and recording. The pauses only punctuate the whole noise, noise, noise thing. Smiled form start to finish...backing vocals were a real treat...think I've said all this before...and will continue to repeat myself :)
Hi Rich. It's nice to know that I am not alone with this. I also have a demon in my ear and that's my OCD. This song has really struck a cord with me. This may be a short song but you get the message across brilliantly. PJ
Third time in a row and this track ruins my mind. Really like the uncertainty and off kilter feeling.
Dude this is some good stuff. What a big sound. Must be fun to play as well. Let me know when youre in the Milwaukee/Chicago area. Come play this for me please. This is a great tune that I feel
I know well this demon of which you speak. Another great effort sir. I have noticed that you always have a song somewhere in the top twenty song's list. It is testimate to the effort that's put forth on your end. Couple that to the absolute that is all of your natural musical talent and I start to thinkin' that someone will finally put you onto the higher airwaves -where you belong! -Mike
Wow, Rich! I’m sorry to hear of your demon. We all know what it is like to have tinnitus periodically for short duration. But to have the experience for an extended period of time would be troubling to say the least. What a good idea to write a song about it. One of the great things about being a creative artist is having the ability to use art as therapy.
A perfect song for a wellknown but underestimated problem! I have been lucky so far, but who knows ... / Peo
demon in my ear, yeah totally get it, love the flanger on that guitar, another fine serving mate! voted
Very cool song Rich. Seems like anyone who's spent a good amount of time creating music runs into the same trouble. Ya I really like what you did with the vocals on this one! Take care buddy
Interesting idea and lyrics. Doing something a bit different with your voice on this one. Liked it a lot. Rated. John & Paul
My tinnitus is the same as Andrews, a high pitch ring, very annoying at times but mostly i just can tune out, voices would scare me! Great song for an underexposed problem. Thumbs, Gibbo
Really good Rich, the backing and the strings are great. You got my attention right from the first chord........David
Thought this as the title to Dan Brown's latest novel about the papacy :) That metallic whine...demonic? Yup! :D need a good exorcism!...this has New Orleans swagger to it...bringing back some sweet pauses and hesitations...a little negative space makes this rock with anticipation...loved the backing vocals and those guitar stabs and stings (harmonic twangs :)...speaks so well to the torment (and that Triton...sweeeet :)
I had a demon in my ear for over six months. After going to a dnb event. Lost many hours of sleep trying to tune it lol Comes back from time to time. It may even be there all the time. I notice it sometimes wile watching TV. When it goes quiet. Think I may have just got used to it. Short tribute :) Peace, Ricky
I got a demon in my ear too. Damn 60's and 70's. They are the culprit I am convinced. Love the background vocals....
Dark edgy tune Rich....I likes it! I can only imagine what "she's" like...I had a demon in my ear once...but eventually she left...lol ..joking aside...this is really good matey...Catchy! Il be singing "I have water in me beer" all day now!...yeah..Im a bit foggy in me left too!! keith
HI Rich, I'm so glad my Tinnitus issue, is not an actual voice! Its more like a high pitched ringing that never lets up!
I love the way you weave these words of wonder, spun with a very Bluesy guitar soul here, great riffs and super vocals, I love the Gospel backup!
An easy vote from me!
a great listen another fine song and really nice guitar sound the vocals spot on well done rich you got my vote
Yes dirt song really kept me on the edge great sounds great idea great listening
I've been lucky up to now regarding Tinnitus...you have my sympathies,mister. A very short tribute,but maybe longer than such a nasty condition deserves lol. Nice work,Rich.
I loved music at first breath. Born in 1955 the year when Marilyn Monroe came to NYC for acting lessons less then 5 miles away from my wee infant self. Born 6 days after James Dean crashed his Porche 955. Must'v had an effect on me. Maybe.. ya never know. So to go on.. Memories, way 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.

at five I played my first notes. at 15 my second. in between we just don't talk about.
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
