Joanne has a distinctive voice with traces of Joan Baez, and Sandy Denny tucked in nicely. JC nailed this one in classic fashion.
Lovely write on the song. Lyrics were exceptional. And yeah... like Floyd said, the melody is so comfortably familiar yet still seems unknown and new.
Using just piano and strings was an excellent call. Flute floated nicely in the background and stayed mostly in the shadows of the melody. The piano and strings were working so nicely together I didn't want to hear anything else in there.
Nicely done both of you.
Thank you for this.
Great to know someone else can hear that Sandy Denny beauty in Joanne`s voice!
The melody came from humming my lyrics to a couple of favourite folksongs and then finding chords and repeating until it didn`t sound like a copy of either.
