Song Description

nice work - simple, yet complex. great tempo and sweet guitar. - AnnBrodsky

Story Behind the Song

Broadjam Member Reviews Nice simple song and performance. Cat Stevens feel. Would be great to hear this on-stage in a upbeat positive pub. Your voice is honest, legit. Well done! Many singer songwriters I think try to over do it. I feel like you stayed within yourself. If you ever want a gig in Portland, OR look me up. - The Noted Good expression of emotion from the singer. If produced it could be a good modern pop track. Good instrumentation and the arrangement ideas are refreshing. I like the bridge, it takes it in a different direction. The lyrics are conversational which is always a good thing in a pop song. The vocalist has good emotion and expression. - Anelda Spence Beautiful guitar opening. Just love the guitar harmonies here. Vocalist sings with emotion and great technique. The lyrics are sung with true belief, and written in a style that most people will be able to relate to. The recording is crystal clear and perfectly in balance between guitar and vocal. Great performance here! - Andy J King

The song has the feeling of truth to it. It really invites the listener in with the emotion. The voice is very good. Guitar is nice. Somewhat of a broadway sound to the song so maybe it's not actually a pop song.
