Not sure what has happened to me lately.

I have been finding sounds on my guitar and building the melody and lyric at the same time... I guess over time you try new
things and processes change, but this is one of them.
A little DADGAD fun!

It is short, born of the vision I have of the fall.

You will only understand the lyric if you have some Greek Mythology background on Demeter and Persephone, but their
story of the fall is where this was inspired.

All music, vocals and recording/mixing are me...I'm the one to blame....

Anyhow....let's celebrate the fall!!!


THE LEAVES ARE FALLING on SoundCloud


Leaves Are Falling
by Tammy Jann
2015


Moving away far from the sun
warm goodbyes have begun
Hades is calling

the flower journeys down below
when the darkness knows
the leaves are falling, are falling


falling, falling, the leaves are falling
falling, falling, the leaves are falling


Summer's fruits put on display
animals hide from the grey
the birds are calling, they're calling

the colors dance on every tree
they're swept away by a breeze
the leaves are falling, are falling


falling, falling, the leaves are falling
falling, falling, the leaves are falling
falling, falling, the leaves are falling
they're falling, falling, falling

OK, so now you are moving on up into joni mitchell territory. Quite excellent, well done across the board.

Good set of lyrics, too -- and your voice is beautiful on this one. Mighty fine instrumentation and mix, too (the background noise didn't detract too much).

Loved it.

I like the harmony too.

Very soothing and mellow tune. What really makes it for me is your exceptional vocal performance. It seems so effortless and spot on as always. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Tammy,

Very pretty song. Your vocals are quietly passionate here, and fittingly so.

I agree with Kevin. Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake, too, if you are exploring alternate tunings, both are great sources.

Hi Tammy,

Such a lovely song!
It inspired me to get up, walk to my window, and watch the leaves in my yard, while I listened!

Beautiful Tammy. Wonderful playing and singing and probably the best recording I have heard from you. My only nit is it was way too short. I wanted to hear more!

Hey Tammy,

Simple and very sweet song, nice write, nice vocals. (Work on getting rid of the background noise like Kevin suggested--that will make a significant difference especially with open space in song with few tracks).
