Many of you remember this recent song.

Fade to Grey

I just got more news that my local big city radio station is going to be featuring this song on their local songwriter's and artists program this Sunday night. March 1 9pm to 9:30pm and the station is 94.7 in Raleigh NC.... you can stream it live on the interweb.

Thought you might like to know..... this is the second song of mine that is being featured and yup.... my band is the Kill Branch Studio Band (Band in a Box).

Note: this is a collab between myself and David Snyder.

Is it me or is there a little left lean in the stereo image?
The melody is very Neil Young which is nice.

Hi Herb ...

I'd never heard this one before ... but really glad I found it this time. It's a terrific song! It shines in the way all your posts do. Really, really nice. And that's a pretty cool band you have!

Congrats on the airplay! I wish more stations would play local artist here and there. Good luck with it. Best to you ...

Alan

PS: and a tip of the hat to David for his work on it.

Alan

Hello, 'guitarhacker' & Mr. Snyder...

Man, your lyrics -- they're sharp, cinematic, even as they describe scenes that you only see in your dreams, where real, tangible objects becomes symbols for emotions:

"...tears passed under that old bridge..." (That is surrealistically beautiful, gentlemen.)

"The clock, turns so slowly, but the years flew by so fast" (Splendid contrast in the way we experience the passage of time, inwardly -- you can imagine a ruthless wind ripping pages out of a calendar book as a clock's hands wind down slower, slower, slower, until they pass into the realm of 'no-time', or 'anti-time'...)

"But your hand still comes up empty as you close and lock that door" (Gentlemen, this is downright spooky! The sense of loss, of emptiness, is strong enough to touch. The man's future is as dark as a keyhole.)

Always enjoy your singing, 'guitarhacker'! And I seem to be always surprised by your vocal range, and the expressiveness that accompanies it. Though they're not indicated, the Real Style and the Real Tracks drive the lyrics with their catchy, country energy straight down the fast lane.

'guitarhacker', Mr. Snyder, if your songs could be cars, they'd be limited-edition collector's items cool !

Truly-ooly,

LOREN

P.S. Congratulations on having your song broadcast cool !!!

Rayc, Al-David, Bluage, Tunemonger, & Marty. Thanks for the kind words.

Loren, nice in depth look at the lyrics. It's rewarding to have someone like yourself come back and really dig into the words and tell how they touched your soul. To give you the real tracks I'd have to look back.... You can probably find it through a search for the original post from last year.

Love the title "Fade to Gray", interesting contemplation of what was and what never can be. Nice upbeat melody.

Herb,

Really good song—congrats on the airplay. It’s nice to now radio stations in the U.S. still feature local artist play. I think that’s a rarity, I think. Anyway, cool tune. Good luck with it!

My best to you,

Deej
