Learning to Fly
thanks carol xxx
learning to fly, a wonderful song and gifted collaboration. easy to relate to your golden pen, which has always worked quite well!
Thanks very much :)
Nice track. Really interesting lyrics as well. You two work well together. Great collaboration. Enjoyed this song. Thumbs!
Someone has already mentioned my first thoughts which were "Nights in White Satin" that was a classic and this is no exception the lyrics are just brilliant I wish I could write words:( A talent not to be messed with. Great work from you both.
Excellent poem, Dawn! Words that beautifully express a truth all should consider as we speed along on this over-accelerated conveyer toward our other eternity! I am thankful that Vince saw fit to keep the instrumentation sp..., permitting these meaningful words to be easily understood. After hearing LEARNING TO FLY, I feel a sudden urge to work—before it’s too late! By the way, thank you very much for your kind words about my music. I feel encouraged; something I always value.
Nightshade bitter kiss - lyrics don;t come better than this Dawn.
Lovely song, touch of sadness in a Nick Drake fashion.
I enjoy rawness as you know so this does it very well for me Dawn and Vinnie.
Fabulous Stuff, this is a really sweet union of words and melody...and indeed vocal delivery, this all sits so perfectly together. The full package, subtle and melancholic but shot through with sincerity, lyrical loveliness!
An evening of folk and acoustic music is just fine by me, Vin's interpretation of you lyric is excellent, powerful and emotional. Thumbs, Gibbo
We never stop learning to fly. Oh but when my feet get off the ground, it's somethin else! Very appropriate melody for the lyrics. Dark with that smiggin or hope of joy.
"The picture changes
In the blink of an eye
The world chases past
While you're learning to fly..." about sums it all up so well, Dawn...Vin...soars with his loose jangly style...together...a smooth drink of folky- goodness...well done X2
Very good words to this. Well sung too the arrangement leaves space for your words to get through. Good job.
Hi Dawn. Hope things are going great with you. Love the lyrics and you remind me why songwriting can be such a very special skill. Not only do I love what you do but your work gives people like me hope. Vinnie's vocals on this are amazing. Love the opening line "Words spun fine like silk". Yes this can remind listeners of the "Nights In White Satin" but what I admire is your approach to writing a song similar to that feel. Love this Dawn. You are an inspiration. PJ
Vin! great track and wonderful lyrics from the incomparable Dawn! The song smacks of "Nights in White Satin" in places to me. Really enjoyed it. golden collaboration and gets an easy vote.
Acoustic and a good vocal is something I like and this has all this... right from the first few bars... Lyrics when teamed up with Dawn will always be a strong benefit to the musician ... a solid track with many strong elements!
Dawn, when I finally got around to the lyrics and that piano melody together, I couldn't fit the lyric to the piano so I struck a chord with my cheap flea market guitar and it was done in 10 mins, a quick go through and then this live version with a few neighbors in the room lol , one may have let out a yell,I may redo with a complete band someday and also I am now going to work on that piano melody to give it more structure so you could write lyrics to something that has verses and a chorus etc. and Im sorry for putting it out there so incomplete , hey we got this from those great lyrics.
Your the best, Vin
I'm with Eric, dig the rawness of the performance and the lyrics express feelings and life as only you can Dawn.
Wow I really love this one! Great lyric Dawn and it's so pefectly with Vin's unique vocal style.. I also want to say that I too love the stripped down track... It only adds to the truth of the words... Vin Great job on those vocals my friend. Very much enjoyed!!
Some wonderful lines in the lyrics Dawn..."Find homes in wistful song" Poignant!!....as do we all....! Yes, not to the original tune I guess, but so cool that Vin was inspired to dedicate this wonderfully emotive and red-running-raw performance to 'bleed' for your art. keith
I am most fortunate to have had a chance to work with some of the most talented musicians on the internet, in many different genres, ranging from pop/rock to light opera. Some of my collaborators are Juri Rosenfeld, Dawn Diamond, Erik Rosenfeld, Amy Caldwell, Mark Ellis, Boyana Bjoern, Ron Gletherow, Scott Slater, Svenni Bjorgvins, Tom Van Mele (tumc), Wesley De Page, Mark Holley, Mark Alexander, AndyF, Rob Smith, Tony DeLecce, Jim DeLecce, Mykyndred (Mike Round), Deggsy, His Master's Choice (Peo), Mike Azzopardi, Graeme Cammack, Elina Rosenfeld, Allan Bell (Geiger167), David Joel Carter, Craig (Pidgeman) Matthews, Vincent Fidele (Riddle), Dan Michaelson, Tony Miller, Deon Ashton, MoonTurnedBlue(Phil), Guilherme Shroter, Dave Lunbeck, James Clark, Dave (Mezzer) Meredith, KtA, Christy, Terry Wigmore.James Oakwood, Joseph Rodriguez and in production department: James Oakwood, Sal Salvedore and Miush Skirman....and many more instrumentalists and vocalists all of whom have my utmost respect and gratitude. The list keeps growing and if your name's not here and we have collaborated, give me a prod...it's tough keeping up!!
Juri Rosenfeld and I have written many songs together and with others (most frequently with Dawn Diamond, Amy Caldwell and Erik Rosenfeld) we now have 4 CDs for sale, the latest of which is Coming Home. Mark Ellis and I have collaborated on over 30 songs together. Boyana Bjoern and I have a collection of songs that are professionally produced. And me? I am just happy to go along for the ride. As an author and poet, writing is in my blood so if you ever need a lyric, let me know.
After months of waiting, our first professionally produced album, entitled Two Dawns One Day is out and I for one am thrilled with the quality of not only the final mix/mastering etc but of the art work and packaging too. There are 15 tracks which include 13 with lyrics by yours truly, 1 lyric is Juri/Dawn Diamond collab and 1 track is instrumental.
Martin Gallagher features on the title song and all the other vocals are Dawn's. Only 1 track was not composed or written by Juri and that is the 2 Dawns collaboration of I'll Love You More.
Other musicians were involved in the making of this album and the support of family and friends has been tremendous but had it not been for the vision and determination of Juri Rosenfeld, the album would never have materialise ...bless you Juri for I have never been more proud.
As the opening vocals hit my ears I'm struck by the 'Britishness' of the sound. It conveys to me shades of a Ray Davis (The Kinks) composition wise, which immediately warms me to to it.
The intro is nicely out of kilter and misleads the listener as to it's true intent. As Amy's vocals ride in you are carried off on a wonderful musical sonjourn. A small crit on my behalf (opinion
I have long been a fan of songwriter Carole Douglas (Bolton Songbank on Soundclick), a very polished and professional composer. There is nothing I like better than a great song, and given that there are millions of musicians around us, there are very few songwriters. Finding the two Dawns (Sinclair and Diamond) on MP3 Unsigned has been a big pleasure and I look forward to their new col
I was only thinking to myself the other day that I had reviewed loads of Dawn Sinclair tracks but always by other people, which is not really the same thing at all. As you can gather, Dawn is a lyricist/songwriter whose tracks do have a certain something about them, all least the collabs I have come across anyway. We are talking about LOTS of those here. Dawn has worked with Dawn
First off, I have got to make it clear that I think this is an absolutely awesome piece of music, despite the few very minor faults I shall be noting below.
The girls have genuinely done themselves very proud on this one and I found this track to be thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable to listen to.
Any's voice is delightful and the harmonies are simple ear candy. Anyway, down to the nit
Dawn Sinclair will be a very familiar name to most regular users of Mp3Unsigned. Dawn is a lyricist who has worked with a great many artists on the site, myself included, and in very many different genre's of music. The 'Team', as Dawn likes to call it, on this track consists of Amy Caldwell, Dawn Diamond on guitar and of course Dawn Sinclair providing the lyrics. The mix on this version has
Well, this one is the best of the best from our two talented Dawn's. The lyric is heartfelt and poignant, as Dawn Sinclair knows only too well how to do. The melody, performance and simple arrangement by Dawn Diamond is exquisite. This one was a joy to the ears.
My commnet section says it all. Real nice work.
2Dawns1Day By Dawn Sinclair featuring Martin Gallagher.
What was it about The Beatles?
Why do songs that are merely influenced by them still sound so powerful, so emotive?
I have no idea. You must have an opinion of sorts, assuming you even like the band, that is.
This is definitely one of those powerfully emotive songs, with a strong sense of that classic sound running deep within.
Dawn Sinclair, where to start with her! Dawn is a different kettle of fish to the majority of artists on the site, as she is a lyricist. She does not perform on any of her tracks, so as you can see different to most people here. But ever since she has arrived she has shown what a prolific song writer and collaborator she is.
Gathering around herself a group of 5 or 6 musicians a
Dawn Sinclair - Teach Me like A Child
Latin music. My only experience of latin music made by someone who isn't actually latin is limited. The late Kirsty MacColl and, err... That's it, I guess.
The best way I can safely describe this track, overall, is shiny. Shiny, happy, fresh, uplifting and gleaming like polished silver.
I can really sit back and relax when music like this is on the radio
Wow! Teach Me Like a Child is a joy to listen to. Dawn Sinclair clearly has a gift for the written word and it is exploited beautifully in this song. The lyrics should speak to anyone who has lost the innocence and wonderment of viewing the world as a child does where their thoughts roam wild and free. It's a great reminder for any of us who have be
Alessandra is a track by Juri Rosseneld accompanied by Chris Maxwell featuring the vocals written by Dawn Sinclair.
First off, i am rating with a 7 equaling an average radio quality track by a professional. The first thing that cathces my ear on this track is the musicmanship. It is very strong. timing is spot on, vocals are delivered brilliantly. Chris Maxwell is an extre
I WISH THERE WAS A CD AVALIABLE OF THIS GIRLS WORK, RATHER THAN A SITE. IT SEEMS VERY CLEAR TO ME THAT THIS SONG AS WELL AS ALL THE OTHER TRACKS, HAVE A DEFINATIVE EDGE WHICH IS SUPERIOR TO SOME OF THE CURRENT MUSIC AVALIABLE. THE GREAT EMPHASIS ON FEEL, IS WELL NOTED IN MY BOOK. THE INSTRUMENTATION ALONE COULD HOLD INTEREST, AND WHOEVER MIXED THIS, KNOWS A THING OR TWO ABOUT PRODUCTION VALU
THIS TO ME, IS PURE ART, AND I LOVE IT.
