i got to say this is a good song a nice tone on the guitar works nice with the vocals the strings adding a nice touch and builds up into the outro with the vocal effects i liked that bit
Hi Jon. I don't believe I've checked out your music before but this is a great song. Love the production and you sing this with feeling and emotion. I'm so glad I checked this out. Recommended. Also a belated well done on making the Top 3 with this. PJ
Great lyrics! Just a few choice lines, but you get the most out of them, very memorable hook in that chorus, that's gonna hang with me awhile. Good use of strings, complimenting that acoustic and your vocal...interesting outro! Nice hearing you again, Jon, it has been too long!
Had to stop by. I know, I as well don't visit enough.. I love this track a lot! Your approach to the vocal is class behind a melody that is deceptively simple. Love the unexpected ending. Also the live feel on the vox works for me anyway.
Er...it multi posted the comment after saying your mailbox does not exist?!
Enjoyed this mainly for your vocals but I do like that bizarre drum pattern ending a lot too. Threw me off a ton. Good to hear forward thinking experimentation lives still :)
Hey Hun :)Yet again good to hear another new track from you :) Interesting mix of styles, I didn't expect that Drum Step pattern towards the end, but it worked a treat. Vocal delivery is on point .Enjoyed :) Ess X
wow STONEDOG... that is a name I remember from back in the day here at mp3u! I hope all is well with you and really great to see a new song from you. This is how alternative music should sound to someone who still loves the great music of the 90's. I'm not locking it in that genre or decade but the feel of the song is what I'm referring to. Just love this man. And that fadeout is fantastic. Very much enjoyed this Jon and wish you the best.
Jon, what a ear-catching opening guitar and voice!!...loved the strings and synth support during the "almost leave me dry...chorus")...by 2:20 you really got a groove on...gentle...but a sweet mix and then that round bass along the bottom...well-developed...was that the female side of the argument at the end heavily f/x'd?...synth/strings swirling....haunting tune...enjoyed! ( the beats , when they came in were unexpected but repeated listens, your choice intrigues as a statement of being off-balanced through the episode that left you almost dry)..at least it seems so to these ears and these imaginings of mine :)
hey jon!! this is a really surprising song...starts out so timidly and then bursts into a very confident, strong chorus...back to timorous verse...back again to that amazing chorus...then a really unusual and gradually fading ending which sounds like life itself passing by in a blur....love it!!
This is really nice, good indie feel, yeah i'm liking the outro too. Rate, Gibbo
My kinda music! Superb vocals and acoustic...love that crazy outro beat from 3.10... keith.
As Kevin has said, long time!! Nice to hear your back mate, we never really leave, do we..........lol!!!!!! This is a great piece Jon!! Loving the layered vocals and the fx's!! The string and guitar work are great!! Lyrics, vocals are superb and as I have said, the vocal layering is very sweet. It has a slight resemblance to the Verves "Unfinished Symphony". Just my humble opinion though!!All in all, it's a winner from me!!
Hi Jon, long time! Good to hear you are still producing....this is a good'un....has a Vervey-vibe....'till dat DnB mash for a finale LOL....I like it, Kevin

The Umbilical Cord by Stonedog
Some things you may not have known about umbilical cords:
ü They are composed of Wharton’s jelly and not ordinary skin or tissue
ü They do not contain any nerve cells and so are painless to cut
ü They contain one vein and two arteries
A totally new name to me now from MP3 Unsigned. Stonedog is the bandname of Jon Davies a singer/songwriter (and I presume acoustic guitarist) and also features Adam Gee on bass and Steve Piggott on drums so now you know as much as I do about them eh? Although they bill themselves as rock, Time and Tide doesn't strike you as being particularly rock, it being a very laid back
Let me just say again that Mp3 is full of interesting and very capable artists, and the Reviews that I am doing is just my perspective.
There is alot of genres that i know little about, and would never presume to be an authority on. So this is just how I see them
So first off with this review.
I just descovered Stonedog ( Jon Davis) recently and I must admit I havent heard a bad tun
