Hey guys,

Heres a track I recorded at home would be grateful for any input. I'm working towards an album so need your help on whether it should make it and anything else you think about it!

Live Youtube
Listen Here or my Website

P.s if anyone wants to help me out and 'like' my facebook page that would be massively appreciated!

Its acoustic Folk one called Suffer no More


Suffer No More


My soul’s been haunted by the sun

It’s been trying hard not to hide

But the world kept it inside



And the shadows they deepened in my mind

Shattered words that never were said

Are the ones that imprint on my head



But in the silent evening she knocked at my door

And she promised me, I will suffer no more



Light bends and it scatters on her face,

Un-veiling a love to find

Leaving the darkness behind



To the widowed silence I must toast

Its a long time spent in the dark

When your never making you mark



But Then In the silent evening she knocked at my door

And she promised me, I will suffer no more



She’s hearing my words, when I’ve nothing to say

We’ve unveiled the light, and forgotten our mistakes

The Scars are lost, and this head no longer sore

And its time, that I suffered no more



My soul been haunted by the sun

And there’s glass all over the floor

But I will suffer no more

Great sound you've got going Dave. Love the arrangement from the simple cello and guitar to the full band. Love the banjo. You've got a great voice.

Friggin' spectacular -- that's all I gotta say about this one. The instruments and vocals are great (nice harmony sounds in there). Just super.

Dave, this is an absolutely beautiful song. I love the interplay between the cello and other acoustic instruments, the melody.... I think this is great the way it is and you should put this on an album. Good luck! grin

Your other music is beautiful as well. Listening to "Carve Me" on your Facebook page. grin

Dave,
I am certain that there will be a time in the not too distant future when your career has taken off that I will be telling my friends "Dave's a good friend of mine and I used to give him advice when he was just starting out".

So here is my advice to you:
"Keep it up you are great!"

I love this and love this direction. Beautiful recording. What a great sound.

Dave, great song!
this is a must for your next CD.
(make sure you get the lyrics to match what your singing.)
would be nice to hear some drums or percussion in the middle when the song builds.

That video is beyond phenomenal!!!

Is that all recorded on one mic??? (OK, I see some other mics there). Is your guitar DI'd in? It sounds pretty "warm" if it is.

I hope you reach all of your musical dreams! (and keep that band together as long as you can -- add a percussionist, too!).

Dave,
You got to tell me how you got that sound in a live accoustic performance???
Did you over dub things? No mic for the cello, guitar and mandolyn? One vocal mic?
How did you do that? It sounds so clean.

To Kevin and Tom - Yes its all done live no overdubs or anything like that, just a little mixing.

It was recorded on 3 or 4 mics I think A vocal, Banjo and one or two room ones. Guitar wasn't DI'd.

In truth it wasn't too difficult to mix as all the instruments occupied their own mix space, and they're all good musicians and instruments which helps! glad you like it.

Thanks to all of you smile and thanks for putting on your facebook walls and 'liking' my page, its all huge help and I'm forever grateful!

Dave

Dave...Nice song,reminded me of Nick Drake,but with the combination of instruments you have their,their is no reason why you can't create a new "unique" sound of your own.I'm not really into the folk scene,but listening to this track,and the instruments involved,i could hear a "new " sound swirling around in there,add percussion for a bit of thump here and there,write some "upbeat" numbers as well,and iam sure you could come up with a winning formula,being different from the rest of the pack is what it is all about,that is what will get you noticed.Hey an English version of "The Pogues"..but with your own identity and sound,....Good Luck...Terry..

Hi Dave,

Absolutely stunning, great writing, great musicianship, great and simple production. That's music. Love it.

One suggestion I do have to make, it's not a critique, as such - more like if there was a wishlist I'd put this on it: Upright bass and fiddle, pleeeeeease! That would just be the icing on a very sweet cake, as it is... smile

I'm with you there Mike!

We did try to get a upright bass player but he wasn't able to make it one the day!

Fiddle would be great too!

AWESOME SONG! Can't say enough about how much I like this one. Have watched the video at least 5 times. This is not typically my style of music but a good song is a good song and you guys delivered it extremely well. I have not yet listened to your other songs but I will get around to it soon for sure.

Really do not know who would not like this song. Should be on the radio or out there somewhere for sure.
