Project Summary

Description: A lot of my songs have a story behind them. Not this one, I just wanted to write a blues. Apart from the oblique reference to John Lennon, it is a medium 6/8 blues in Cm.

Project brief: I am looking for vocalists, male or female to bring the soul out of this blues song. The master track has voice for demonstation purposes only. It will be removed and replaced with the vocal talents of a great blues singer (this is a refence to you). The second track is the song with the vocal removed. As always, any hints, suggestions, additional music parts are always welcome.

For audio file uploads, please use: 24 bit, 44.1 kHz


River of Blues I’m tired of hearing the same old news. I’m tired of walking in these worn out shoes. And this life I lead, its not the one I’d chose And I’m drowning in a river of blues. I’m tired of walking down this same old road. I’m tired of carrying this heavy load. Thinking these thoughts until my head explodes And drowning in a river of blues. Just try to imagine, that’s what the wise man said. This world does not exist it’s in your head. Just try to imagine until your troubles cease. When you can imagine then you’ll find your peace. So just keep on listening till the fighting ’s done Keep on walking till the war is won. Live your peace until we all are one And not drowning in this river of blues.
