Hi all,
Here's another collaboration with David Lekich.
I hope you will enjoy this song.

https://soundcloud.com/christian-devienne/im-too-alone

Down on my luck again
When will this darkness end
Oh, I can use a friend
I feel so lonely

Would you be of the mind
To spend a little time
With me and maybe be
My one and only

I’m too alone
I’m too alone
Set aside like a
Dog without a bone
I’m too alone
I’m too alone
Won’t you open up your heart
And take me home

It’s not my style you see
To beg so desperately
But you’re the one I need
I know this surely

If you could take the time
To get to know me, I’m
Certain you would quickly see
You’re the one for me

I guess it’s hard for you
To want to trust me like I do you
It’s been so long since someone’s song
Has ever sung to me like you do

Hi, you two.
I think this has a good melody and well mixed but there is a "sameness" all the way through that could do with some attention.
Maybe a break before the chorus and a few accents here and there.

The last line here sounds awkward:
"But you’re the one I need
I know this surely". Maybe a change to something like "come set my spirit free".

Hi, Chris & Deej. A wonderful collab. The melody grabs me right away. Excellent close harmony on the choruses, and I really like the harmony separation in the the verses. Perfect instrumentation and a good mix.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Quite fast tempo for such a sad song, but it has a really catchy melody. David interprets deep and dark sadness very emotionally once again, nice doubling. Very nice chord progression. I enjoyed the instrumentation and especially the fiddle solo, although it could have been longer.

I like it! smile

The guitar solo worked well, and the vocals and harmony are good. The drum hits were cool, too.

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

Beautiful. It's got that melancholy French chanson sound that I absolutely adore. Deej is so blooming versatile, it's wow. Congratulations to both.

Well done!
An unusual up beat approach to a lonely message.

It worked for me.
Nice band and great vocals by Deej
