Musicians' Café II

Postby King_Erlian » Aug 04, 2014 5:10 am

The old Musicians' Café was closed, so if it's OK I'll open another one.

My latest song is now available for download, from
http://edenthomas.bandcamp.com/album/quaker-songs

My song is track 8, titled "Earth, Air, Fire And Water". Hope you like it!

King_Erlian, you are so talented! I have been listening to each of your folk songs on the site. I do like the minor flavour of "Earth, Air, Fire and Water"—also in some of the other compositions. They are all really well done; very evocative, both in the music and in the lyrics. 'Tis interesting how you highlight history through your some of the pieces. Good variety. Keep up the great work! Do you pursue gigs in your area?

And thanks for starting the new Musicians' Café topic! :)

P.S. It's lovely how your beautiful accent (to my North American ears) comes through so beautifully.

Glad you like it, johobbit! Just to clarify: the only song I wrote and sang/played was "Earth, Air, Fire And Water"; the other songs on the site were by a colleague called Eden Thomas.

While I'm not a musician myself (the most I do is sing along when my brother is playing the guitar ;)), but I really liked "Earth, Air, Fire and Water", King Erlian! Great songwriting; I especially liked the chorus. :) Hope that you share more of your music in the future!

I've another new song on Bandcamp:

http://edenthomas.bandcamp.com/track/mike-nash-farther-up-farther-in-additional-track

This should be of particular interest to NarniaWebbers, as it's called "Farther Up, Farther In" and the lyrics are based on the concluding chapters of "The Last Battle".

Nice, King_Erlian! Very upbeat. I think the last part before the final chorus is my favorite; I like the way you incorporated "the term is over: the holidays have begun." :)

My new album is now available on line:

https://mikenash3.bandcamp.com/releases

It includes a new arrangement of "Farther Up, Farther In", the song based on "The Last Battle" that I sang at the Eclipse Moot. There are nine more songs, all of which I wrote. The last song "Son Of Man, Son Of God" is a Christmas song which also references Easter.

Hope you like it!
