If she ever comes back here, I may, but unfortunately, I doubt she does. And I'm absolutely unknown.

Near my hometown, I once played on the very same stage Heather did (she did almost 20 years ago). If she returned there, I' stalk the boss of the place until she lets me open for her .


(Well, I more than doubt that she ever returns)

Thanks !

Btw, as 57Arietis said, lyrics are really hard to remember, so not having to thing about the chords is a nice balance for my little brain.
When O write this song, I meant it to be played with some other musician, whose purpose would be to break the musical monotony. I hope I will play with someone again soon.

I'm very proud of the lyrics. but unfortunately, it's totally untranslatable.

It's quite hard to remember indeed, for a name with another (or with 3 others) make sense, but the whole thing isn't definitely a story.

Indeed, we started over several times just because I got lost and sung the wrong name (which wouldn't necessarily have been noticeable, but distracted me and led me to wrong notes or a blank in the singing.

It's made of sentences just made out names.

One more, in French, just like almost all of my songs : my Facebook page

For the previous song, i forgot to thank Cass, who helps me each time I write a song in English, pointing the mistakes or the weaknesses in the lyrics, which helps me to improve the whole thing.

You're so nice, with the comment about my accent ! I blamed myself for losing so much on this point, this afternoon, but when I read that it's "lovely", it helps me being ok with it.

Hi !

Today, a new session, in English this time. The problem is that I need to have a real conversation in English to get back a decent accent, and I hadn't had any real conversation before recording... so the accent is bad, and it annoys me quite a bit. Still the song is not bad, I guess, and I took some Heather words here and there.

If every mass production thing were of this quality, my ears would be grateful everytime I am in a supermarket or a shop.

If she does, you'll erase this message.

Thanks for your kind offer, I'd be very curious to see it, indeed.

Heather played indeed a dangerous game, presenting Pearl as Oyster II.

Yes, but I had pushed a button by mistake, I "edited" Gerd's post instead of "relpying" it.

I noticed that today, so remove my asnwxer from Gerd's post an pasted my reply in a proper post.

If I am going to see a pub owner, and say "hey, I can come and play gig in your pub" and give him a deo with a lot of midi instruments, the bar owner won't know what it's like to have me playing in his pub : will I come with some other musicians ? Midi background ? Or just my guitar, but what will it sound like ?

If I come with demos like those on Facebook, what he hears is what he gets, which is much better for the pusposes I seek for now.

Yes, I remember midi was very convenient when we did recordings a decade ago.

Now, I need organic demos, in order to show people who might ask me to play in their pubs or so what it's like if I play live.

You should use the piano more often. It gives incredible class to the beginning of the song.

The rest is fine as well. Somewhat vintage, but really refreshing ; I like it.

In Paris, probably not, but in Belgium, yes. Can't wait.

For the rest, nevermind. No harm done.

I like See Yourself as well, at least for its music ; lyrically, I admit I'm not font of the "when you're broken it's alright" thing.

I quite or really like every song you mention, but I think I could easily find 20 HN songs from previous albums that I prefer. Well, I speak for now. I didn't spoil myself by listening to the recording, but I might change my mind after hearing Berit playing Rewild Me.

... she said something like Pearl being like Oyster (same producer, same sound) ut even better because containing better songs.

The explanation is simple : she wrote most of the songs at the beginning of a great relationship, when she was happy as can be, she started arranging the songs with her boyfriend (in the best circumstances possible), she recorded the album with her boyfriend and other people she likes very much. She spent an amazing time, and thus is very enthusiastic.

Personally, I have mixed feelings : I can enjoy listening to the album for its global sound, for its electric guitar, and for being able to listen almost as a whole (I only skip Experts), I like some songs a lot, Rewild Me, Some Things, and I like some others (Over The Fields, All The Rivers), but if I try to make my Heather top 20 songs, there will probably be no Pearl. Unless we classify liver versions, and the tour is so great that we adore live versions, of course.


That is why I still put Pearl higher than my less liked albums (the general sound is fine), but neither in my favorite ones (there are no amazing songs). IMO, of course.
