Song: “The Will”
Hey there! This week I’m sending you another unreleased song called The Will. This song has a much different “sound” than most of my songs; it features a more raw drum sound and a scratch vocal track that I never intended to use for the final mix. Streaming and download links are found below!
- Recording location: Austin, TX
- Inspired by: Pearl Jam’s album Backspacer
- What it’s about: Women! Need I say more? Haha… After I moved to Texas, my girlfriend stayed behind in Indiana. This song was about my “will” for the relationship to make it through the challenge of being 1,000 miles apart. I wanted to tell her I wouldn’t give up. Ironically, she never heard this song. But you did!
- Notes: When I first completed the song, for some reason I thought it was too “weird” to include on an album. However, when I returned to it recently to remix it, I really enjoyed it. I like the darker tones, obscure drums and the effects on the lead guitar.
Hope you enjoy this one! It’s a sneak peak at what some of my more polished “demos” look like!
