This song has been recorded in Stockholm, Sweden, dec 3rd at Ramtitam Studios. It's a live recording, Petra and me playing and singing in the same room with 5 microphones and the cool and effective Fredrik Wännman as sound engineer.

Then last week we asked Johan to add some cello and he did..plus piano !

This is also the first step of a project for 2009. Hopefully we'll upload more from those sessions soon, but i think it will grow into a full album, maybe a band, maybe more... stay tuned !

Petra - Songwriting, acoustic guitar and vocals
Johan - cello and piano
Dyl- Acoustic guitar and vocals

And now I can't tell you how jealous I am: 3 of my very favs in a song... playing together... pure heaven to my ears!
If I keep telling why and how I like it, I'll destroy the magic.
So I better enjoy this now, then, download, and keep enjoying.
Definetly, my fav song in here since so long.

I've been calling for this band to happen. When there is a music documentary on your band, years from now - they better interview me and ask me how I saw the future happen smiley

Wonderful work, guys. That studio is really nice!

georgeptingley Artist Guitar sounds fantastic, and the studio mic just loves Petra's unique vocal sound. I like the deep low cello tones although I think they are occassionally in too close interval relationship with the guitar bass tones. Love the piano, too, but wish there were more of it. The overall arrangement probably could use some added architecture - perhaps a build of instruments, A very high (but very soft) string part might balance out some of the deep cello notes near the end.

Both Petra and Dylan are my favs for long time now on this site..I'm on my way to do the same for jolofsson...

This is such a beautiful and so sad song. There's two good news here : please make up this band..i'll be the first in line to buy your CD, and it's great to feel that your talents (as singers and musicians) are not fading away in a pro studio. They still shine. The sound is splendid...

Thanks a lot for sharing those sessions with us. Bravo.

Magical. Really. You guys make a hell of team. Petra's voice is so unique.

This duet reminds me of something that R.E.M. may have done with say... Patti Smith. I can really envision that.

But I'd rather have the vision and the memory of you three-- three of my favorites here on iCompositions making magic like this in the studio.

And keep on doing it too! smiley

Yes, it is reminiscent of REM, although I would not have noticed the similarity, if JD had not first suggested it.

The chord progression is like Joan Osbourne's "what if god" which i like! Nice vocals throughout. Love the part when the cello comes in, perfect! You know Dyl i like this but i feel it needs another gear? a mid 8 or differing chorus section? Something just to attain interest throughout. I don't want to sound harsh but i assume this is a Commercial project? I just want to be honest for you and i wish you all th best my friend + What do i know? not alot!! haha smiley

Petra's voice is spot on, and the subtle backing is perfectly gentle to her presence.

I really want to try and offer criticism--to do what this site is designed for--but I really find this impeccable, and I can't offer so much as a changed note, mixing db or errant EQ frequency that would improve this.

Dylan: strength in restraint, very tasteful negative space.
Johan, when your keys and strings come in, this fragile flower blooms.
Petra: voice, lyrics and guitar, always perfectly understated yet focused, shine in this great mix.

Staggeringly beautiful.

Your voices are perfect here, and the harmony is precious. The entrance of the cello and small piano motif reminds me of something Iron & Wine would add to a song.

Thanks for this amazing collaboration!

Like DLB...I was immediately stuck by the similarity to If God Was One of Us...something about the guitar picking pattern and the key really dopples it...but, after a couple listens I don't really care that it's similar. Petra's voice is different enough from JO's...the combo of Dylan and Petra singing is very moving and soothing. Emotional lyrics. It's a good combination. I'm definitely interested in hearing more from this project. All it *might* take to differentiate this track from JO's would be a different picking pattern on acoustic maybe...if you filled in 16th notes inbetween the existing 8ths? Or did that with a quiet snare or percussion...ticka-tocka-ticka-tocka...

I think a harp would be appropriate, too. Very cool you guys hit the studio for this!
