I have to admit: I’m proud of this.
Before I started recording, I listened to the song at least 20x until a was sure to know Ray LaMontagne’s phrasing by heart. I love how the song moves, how it slows down in the chorus. I closed my eyes and imagined sitting there with Ray LaMontagne.
If you want that drum sound on your record, book me for a session.
