Yes I’m still posting songs here! i’m just more focused on preparing a live show which will happen by beginning of july max for sure! (my ultimate deadline)

But in the meantime, i also played a lot of piano and the last two days i’ve been recording this non-stop to the point that i just look at myself and the mirror and it’s pretty scary! a shower and a shave will be really welcome! but i’m pretty happy with this new song! I hope you enjoy it, my first one on the piano!

Looking forward to hear your comments and suggestions!

What I like about it:
I put a lot more airiness in my voice and i like the result, i like the piano

What I’m not so sure:
The end is not very tight, i added the drums as the last step instead of the first one.. so the rythm is a bit off… also maybe the screaming is a bit exaggerated for the song


Lyrics

Dreams Of Yours

Don't wanna do you wrong
I still miss you so bad
But it's getting long
I don't know where I'm at

And how do I proceed?
Don't wanna forget you
But forget you're not here
I honestly need to

You said oh 
Follow your dreams

Your desire to explore
My obsession to write
If someone sings along
Will i feel worthwhile?

Tonight, we watched stars in the park
She laid close to me
Didn't know how to act
I don't know how to be anymore

You said oh
Follow your dreams

I'm never really sure
Whether or not, whether or not
There is a place for us
In dreams of yours, in dreams of yours

You said oh
Follow your dreams

    Your voice sounds really nice in that song and we can hear it clearly. I like the last part even if the rythm is a bit off, I find it more intense. The rest of the song is good because you sing well and the piano part is good too, but a bit slow for my taste. Maybe after the first chorus you could play harder and sing louder. You wrote that you think the screaming at the end is a bit exaggerated for the song, I don’t think so.

    Man Louis, this is really really good! Kind of different from anything I’ve heard you do before. But really good! Your voice is perfect for this song!

    I have some folks from your part of the world playing at my house tomorrow night, The Good Lovelies. I’m really excited about this! Should be a fun time. Stop by my place sometime, I’ve got a few new tunes up.

    Best,
    John
