This is the second in my "Songs by Seven" (Sx7) series, a project setting to music poems written by Alliya's father for her mother. Two other songs are currently in progress similar to the folk feel of the first in this series, but I needed a bit of a break into something a bit more energetic. When I heard Johsua Irwin's Towards the Light, I thought it might work out well for one of the poems, and Joshua was kind enough to let me risk mangling his great music! smiley I hope the result is enjoyable for everyone!

Music: Joshua Irwin
Vocals: Offbalance
Lyrics: Seven (provided by Alliya)

Other songs in the project are listed in my blog entry here.

OB, Joshua and Alliya!

I loved the first installment, and this as well!

What a treasure...what a gift..this is incredibly touching and tops all sentimental keepsakes I could imagine between the love of parents.

OB, you found a jewel in Joshua's instrumental...and your interpretation of the poetry makes this a perpetual love affair...

How incredibly special!

CU!

Looking forward to the next and the next and the next!

Absolutely gorgeous... the mood, the atmosphere.. is determined and powerful, like it's holding back and not showing all the cards. Until the beat comes in, and fits the mood perfectly. An instant favorite.. Amazing.

This is so soothing. I love the synth bed on which the song comfortably rests - it's easily overlooked, but so important to the overall composition. Great guitars, from the thin clean guitars keeping pace to the elegantly and tastefully distorted crunch that comes in the latter half.

This is a very organic piece, and I like where it's going. I do believe I'll like this saga / suite.

Really beautiful work, all involved. Spacious, pure and dreamy -- not only was it a nice break between all the noise and shouting that I normally listen to at this time of day, but it sunk its hooks into me deeply enough that even when I realised I was a little late for work and should really drag myself away, I quickly dismissed the thought and stayed in my seat. I wasn't familiar with Josh's original, but it's a beautifully composed and arranged piece; the vocals float above the music, adding another dimension to the atmosphere. Heartfelt, atmospheric and very, very nice. Great job, all!

Great song. You use the music well. Does Alliya sing? Some female vocal on this would be really nice.
