A clip of “Found The Truth” a Christian song driven by Jennifer L’s soulful vocal, just as it reaches the incredible sax solo:
“I liked the ‘Pink Floyd music meets The Beatles vocals on the client rough, and thought, yes, something modernized in that direction would work. Safety resided in the obvious path: go with the Pink Floyd vibe, regurgitate the client version, only updated and better; no risk, happy client.
But great music doesn’t reside in that space. Job security? I could care less, if I needed that I’d have been an accountant.
I tossed the thought to the guitarist and drummer on the session that a more bluesy aim might be where this tune should really land. Greg Jennings, one of the founding members of Restless Heart, picked up his electric guitar and started laying down a soulful rhythm guitar part, William Ellis of Montgomery Gentry and I joined him on drums and bass guitar respectively, and about a minute in I decided it was definitely happening, the right vibe, “put it in the red” and we cut this 3 piece rhythm track.
Many hours of overdubs and engineering work later, this mix happened.”-bill w. Client reaction: “Hey Bill, WELL, Just gotta say WOW, you nailed it! Greg Jennings is perfect on guitar, not too much but simple, as John Lennon said: keep it simple. How beautiful!! You played a GREAT bass line! Jen is incredible, OH DID I MENTION SAX,sax sax? Never thought that I would love this song so much, YOU proved me wrong, GREAT JOB! Two more songs are on the way.” ROB C
A special thank you on this one to my buddy John, who was so incredibly patient as I coached him to hear the sax solo I was hearing. He got it off to great start with the initial phrase. Once he got the remainder, man, he just absolutely delivered with the perfect energy and emotion this song needed to pull it together. He always says, “if you can sing it, I can play it. The whole truth is: he’ll play it far better than you can sing it!” B. E. © 2012 Winston Harold. Used by permission to demonstrate production values.
