Comfort

This simple song was made as a musical comfort for a friend. Dreams and reality do not always meet, but comfort can be shared in low doses. After a long time I had a song which was perfect for RnAM to sing. And once again they did excellent work.

RealDrums: NashvillePop16

RealTracks:
Acoustic Guitar #1595, #1676
Nylon Guitar #2200
Pedal Steel #2667
Electric Bass #1036
Electric Piano #910
Sax Soprano #1061
String Quartet #2335

Vocals: RnAM

Mixed in Adobe Audition 2017. Mixing with vocals by RnAM

Lyrics:

I have seen your prison cell
but don't have tools to cut your ropes
you have seen the freedom I have
but I don't want to awake any false hopes
you need to find your way out
you can do it, no doubt
but if you get lost
I'll be there healing wings of your dreams.

I can't build you a home in the woods
I can't give you a life in a rich neighborhood
can't get you a speed boat, or a fancy car
I can't take you to Venus or Mars
but I can give you a glimpse of the stars
chords from my heart
I can give you comfort.

You told me about your grief
I've tried my best to empathize
but I can't be the savior you need
it took me too long to realize.
Just find a moment, time to mourn
find the reason for each thorn
and when you get up
I'll be there spreading balm to your wounds.

[Chorus]

If you feel lonely in the middle of the crowd
or if you feel cast-off under a rainy cloud
if you still want to meet me at the coffee bar
I let you be the center star.

[Chorus]

What a great collaboration. This is a really beautiful melody, and delivered with marvelous vocals.

Thoroughly enjoyable.

It was a pleasure to work with Janne again on one of his (relatively simpler ;-))songs.
This one in particular was very melodic, we love the vocal melody.
The song has a very nice dreamy atmosphere.

Thanks Rob and Anne-Marie for your excellent work once more. Always nice to work with you and good that you also liked the song and the melody, so the working was probably not so unpleasant wink Yes, this one was simpler, do you want more challenging next time? wink

Artists Notes: Recorded in PT a few years back.
Things of note I remember:
guitars/vocals/mandolin by Jeff Solvig, who came here from Chicago to lay his tracks (to a click)
Weeks later I brought Tim Dubay in to play drums. He listened to it 2 times and said "OK I'm ready".
Then played some very nice drums.

I just recorded everything and did bass and strings.

/I intentionally left extraneous talking, squeaks, etc .. thought it added something
//been digging thru old stuff lately between recording sessions, this one was fun to find
