Proud dad posts song...
A few of you have asked about my daughter Zoey's music. She writes and performs her own material (vocal and piano). People seem to like her songs - the sweet and light ones and the more angst-ridden or deeper lyrics. I like them all but am biased and based on my own singing ability, have to question her paternity sometimes...
Thanks to fellow blogger and New Yorker extraordinaire Nova, I now have a link to one of Zoey's songs if you want a listen. Here's one of those I'd call sweet and light - it's called This is a love song
I just fore once wanted to be the first person to post a comment, so there...
No, that is not what I was going to say in the first place. But it is a good way to start, I suppose ...
Zoe's voice is her asset, clear and in pitch. The lyrics are average for that particular age group, a bit melancholic-pretentious, but fine in the overall picture. Ask her: Where is the bite!
The keyboard sounds fine, but is not of very great importance.
Hope I didn't go overboard with my analysis. It is a very fine song after all. And it is an "original", which counts extremely high in my deck of cards...
Love the lyrics: "I swept up after you, and I made you a sandwich too."
Love Zoe's voice.
Love the piano.
Love that you posted this Gary. Thank you!
(There wouldn't be angst without love)
Thanks for posting Zoey's song and voice. "Proud dad" is definitely called for.
I`m so happy with that outcome of Keep the Beat (I`ve been away from the blogs for awhile), it really is something wonderful.
Hope you`re rocking on Gary!
Congratulations to Zoey. Please convey to her my best wishes and encouragement.
Let her know I think she has a lovely timber in her lower register reminiscent of a country / blues style.
The Lyrics take me back to my youth.
I could also imagine an arrangement to also include a Fiddle and Sax.
zoe was the girl name i had chosen for my last born - who also has just graduated from high school. but this baby wore a tux to grad, and was 6 foot 3. he definitely wasn't a zoe. he was a lucas.
