Like many of you, I love listening to music, I have quite an eclectic taste from classical through to Country and Rock music. I not only listen to the tunes and melodies but the lyrics in particular as well as the voices which when I am lucky enough to hear a fantastic voice they tend to seep into me sometimes like a soft breeze through the spring flowers.
There are many song lyrics that people listen to and think, ‘yes! I can relate to that,’ for me one of the main artists that I have found where I relate to their lyrics recently is Scott Evan Davis. Many of his songs, Walk a Little Slower, I Am , Cautiously Optimistic and He’s Perfect, I find myself taking a deep breath because Scott’s music has stolen it.
Scott’s album Cautiously Optimistic (produced by soniclandscapes, NYC) was featured in the recent An Evening with the Composers concert in London which was produced by SimG Productions and contains the most beautiful, funny and heart-wrenching music that I have heard in a long time. As I have mentioned before SimG are the biggest supporters of new writers as far as I am aware and always seem to find amazing talent. They have certainly found astounding talent in Scott Evan Davis as not only does he write amazing musical arrangements, lyrics and fabulous musicals, he also has a gorgeously stunning singing voice. Before you ask, no, I did not get paid to say that! It is just the truth as I see it!!
As I sat and listened to Walk a Little Slower; which seems everywhere lately! I have heard it on YouTube, on the Radio and in my car, not only did the soaring, gorgeous voices of Joshua Dixon and Faith Prince strike me as especially Josh’s voice has many times lately, but also the lyrics seem to just swirl around my head and heart. When I watch it on YouTube, I am unable to tear my eyes away from the love and affection that Joshua puts into the song and his glorious voice which just seeps further into my soul. (more…)
