Hi All,

Not much time for music these days, but wanted to share something new. I will also get around to listening / commenting on all the new songs posted here.

This is called Graffiti Love.

I know love like an endless sky
It's all right when it's up high
I know you can fly so blind
But I crash and burn over time

Now baby you fill your jar with paint
You know what it is and what it ain't
You got a steady hand that's lined and tough
A connoisseur in the art of love

I know love is a war of words
It's all graffiti and absurd
I know you can trace the names
But I get stuck and place the blame

Now baby you fill your jar with paint
You know what it is and what it ain't
You got a steady hand that's lined and tough
A connoisseur in the art of love

I know love is skin and bones
It's all a graveyard all alone
I know you separate the themes
But I see the raven so it seems

Now baby you fill your jar with paint
You know what it is and what it ain't
You got a steady hand that's lined and tough
A connoisseur in the art of love

Baby you
A steady hand
In the art of love

"You got a steady hand that's lined and tough/A connoisseur in the art of love" - what a great lyrical hook!

As soon as I saw you had a new track posted on my notifications, I had to make sure I gave it a listen tonight.

Vocal delivery and interpretation resonates your lyrics.

Great to have you back in the writing groove. Terrific lyrics, liked the instrumentation, could've used more variety in the song structure, I think. But inimitably you, I dug it.

A Dylan-esque, hymn-like layout. Builds subtle and effective. Sweet lines and imagery carried by your raspy, weary voice. The band sounds great. Much enjoyed.

I've been waiting for a new song from you Bob and it surely doesn't disappoint. I like especially the lyrical structure with two faces of the same scene: "I know you can fly so blind but I crash and burn over time". The band and mix work perfectly, the chorus is catchy and the lyrics flow smoothly. Percussion effects adds a nice texture.

"you got a steady hand that's lined and tough

Already quoted but worth another! Great line...of many.

Tangmo said: "A Dylan-esque, hymn-like layout. Builds subtle and effective..."

Couldn't agree more...if you've got something to say that can work well -- like it does here.

And, as always an emotive vocal that really carries the lyric nicely.

And, as always, a great band and mix.

Oh, and we've missed you.

All round terrific stuff.
There's is the tendency for your voice to push the treatment it receives into clipping/overdrive.
I think it'd be an easy thing to fix but it does seem to be a colour you like on your voice.


Cheers

I really like the way you write with a poetic sensibility, but it fits the song, instead of feeling shoehorned in.

And, of course, the excellent arrangement, mix and singing. laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?
