‘Hope in Everything’
We released our last album in 2014. This August we went back into the studio to record a single called ‘Hope in Everything’ that we wrote in February 2016 . We’ll spare you the blurb on the meaning of the song as we feel the lyrics are self explanatory. Initially we had more verses but in the end did some editing so that the song is now just under 5 minutes. We indulged in a double intro....a bit of messing at the start of the song made it’s way into the recording and then there is the actual intro. It’s a bit like having that second coffee!!
There are some new things involved in this latest recording. Since we got together in 1984 the main accompaniment to our songs has been the acoustic guitar along with keyboard. In this recording Dave plays an electric guitar and Trish plays an EWI5000 to augment the brass lines. The Alto sax solo is an ‘on the spot’ improvisation to bring a ‘live’ feel to the recording. There is a funky/groove to ‘Hope in Everything’. We didn’t sit down to arrange this song, we just went into the studio and recorded it. ‘Hope’ you enjoy ‘Hope in Everything’.
