Those synths particularly in the intro are magical.
Ah reminds me to go check out the tumc page again... Tom is a really talented guy with such scope and variety in what he produces. A beautiful song with (as we are accustomed to!) an excellent lyric (I especially like the chorus lyric). Took me a while to get used to the glitchy beats alongside the vocal timing but either it gets smoother throughout the track or my ears got accustomed to it!
What a compliment Peter...you won't find a cover on my pages unless it's a second collaboration of the same lyric...that happens and both end on my page because I wrote the lyrics. This was the original version of this song and the later version was an interpretation using same tracks but with additions by MOG. Some people preferred it but Tom and I preferred the original even though MOG did a great job.
I think I played through your songs the other day while doing other stuff on the internet (uploading tunes etc), and decided to have another listen today.
You know when you hear a song on the radio for the first time, you subconsciously take it in. Then on the second listen something triggers a response, like (oh yeah I like this)
That's what I got for this song. I thought it must be a cover or something at first, I had to read the description to make sure it wasn't.
That's the mark of a great song! Peter ;)
Great movement in the opening music, strings plus oscillators, glitchy electronica and thumping/pulsing bass/beat....treat is in the lyrics, Dawn, rendered so well by the vocalists in here...sad strings really augment and reinforce - with the beats - the lack of pulse in humanity at large. Very cool tune by all!
A space sounding track with the light touch on the keys, interesting duel vocal. SC
Nice and different/
Appreciating the lyric, music's pretty good too. Weary-sounding vocals (male) work well with this idea. Made a nice duet, didn't it? Rated
yes good lyrics. would be interesting to hear this is a acoustic format with subtle backing.
liked the left field electronic side of this though especially those strings waving in
Agree w/Dan... love the lyric Dawn. I really like the panning on the vocals... Like listening to a stage performance. :)
Lyrics are the best. No comment on the electronic voice. there's a name for it, but i refuse to acknowledge it. Beautiful song, just wish the vocals were natural. just my opinion, and that's all it is. The song is outstanding! No matter what.
Kallen, this sounds much better on monitors than on cans. I like this Dawn lots. Musical and trippy. Love the voices and the delivery. Nice production that comes across like a dream.
Wonderful lyrics compliment the music perfectly...and that is what its all about. I love lots of the words but that line "who notices the neighbour behind the bolted door?" gets me. There lies a story. I like both vocals on this equally...Im not 100% sure that one in one ear and the other in the other is a little distracting...kinda works but doesnt, if you know what I mean. Im wondering which came first...the boy or girl? Bah...its just me, I dunno what Im flamin' talking about...haha. :-) k
No denial that this is so well written + performed. Awareness ever-so present... wonderful song! :)
Sometimes the original versions have that edge. The voices are lovely and clear but I still read my way through as I listen and these excellent lyrics really hit the spot Dawn. Such a pity that the words are so true. Well done all concerned.
Great collaboration on this track, with an excellent musical production/performance. However, it's the lyrics here that do it for me; great writing, Dawn; well done.
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 include: 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 in many genres 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, mostly in the folk/pop genre.
Boyana Bjoern and I have a collection of modern songs that are professionally produced. One of those...Only 17 won the Bubblegum Pop contest in January/February 2016.
And me? I am just happy to go along for the ride. As a lifetime writer, as author, poet and lyricist, 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.
