Before I Let Go - Music Video


“The Awakening” is the first song I composed within the holistic instrumental genre. Writing it did not come easy! I found myself going off target. I still believe I missed it. The song sounds more like something from a movie score. Maybe that’s another genre I can explore later in life, LOL!

The song has become one of my favorites, if for no other reason than it’s being my first of its kind! I love the tribal drums that open the song, I remember searching my drum library for the right drum sound and beating the hell out of my drum set during the recording.

Composers Notes


 
 

I was talking with my keyboard player "Clayton" telling him I needed a song to release, we were working on original songs but I wanted to put out something that people were familiar with, as a first release.

That's when he said. "Dave, I have a version of "Before I Let Go," I said, "the old Frankie Beverly and Maze jam?" He said, "yup, though it might be a little too jazzy for you!" He knows I'm not super big on jazz! Shame on me, I'm working on that! 

I said, "let me hear it." He emailed me the track and I loved it! It was full of jazz and loaded with funk. So I "slapped" a funky bass line on it, Spudy dropped his guitar licks and a screaming solo and it was a wrap!

I really enjoyed this song it has a fun, summer, driving with the windows down feel to it. "Before I Let Go" has that 1980’s sound and this instrumental version does justice towards the Maze hit.

Wow, I was thinking how can you make “Before I let go” any better. Loved it!

I really enjoyed the new life that you've breathed into this. I love the subtle changes to the bass and guitar!
