New song! This is part two in the miniseries of experiments and collaborations leading up to the Every Time You Break EP.
Every Time You Break (Acoustic Version) features Troy Jay Adams of Dig Me Under and The Answer is None on guitar. It is a heartfelt and slightly freeform version of this song, and includes my first real efforts at string arranging, which was more fun and challenging than I expected. Enjoy!
So much good music released lately, and this is the one I can’t get enough of right now. Virgina’s venerable Freedom Hawk has a brand new album called Beast Remains, and they had me at the first track, the energetic, moving “Solid Gold”.
The band’s sound is reminiscent of the best of 70s AOR and prog rock, while at the same time sounding both modern and timeless. Passionate, melodic, and grooving, Beast Remains is a perfect showcase of the band’s formidable songwriting and musical skills.
Whatever’s in the water at Virginia Beach, I want some. In the meantime, I’m just going to keep enjoying Freedom Hawk rock and hope they come this way soon.
