  • Hello Ciaran!

    Awesome song! You've sort of got a David Gray quality to your voice. I really enjoy the velveteen treatment you've delivered on this song. You have a strong voice, good vibrato, and pretty steady pitch. You sing and play to the song, which is something a lot of young artists have difficulty with. Often the instrumentation and vocal tend to compete…not with you…you offer up plenty of space to support the lyric of the song.

    Nice lyrics…plenty thoughtful. I'd love to hear this song done up in a studio. I can hear a second guitar playing a counter melody across your own and some string builds as the song climaxes to its end. I definitely would keep it natural and authentic…violins, cellos and the like with a nice tight, dry drum kit…maybe even some light percussion…how about a stop about 3/4 way into the song and then a big hook!

    You do a good job of looking into the camera and then away for those contemplative moments…it helps tell the story of the song…sometimes your listener doesn't even need to know the words…with the right expression, musical and vocal emotion, you can take your listener almost anywhere. Thank you for sharing this lovely piece with us! :) Oh, I like how you wound down the end also! Smart to add a lil narrative at the end…hardly anyone has even done that…this gives us a chance to view you as a person. Cool. I hope you do that live as well…keep it real!!!
