New Song – When I’m Gone

New Song – When I’m Gone

New song from my forthcoming album. Check it out on youtube (link above), and bag yourself a free download of the unmastered version from my website, or my Reverbnation site

Just in time for Halloween

This is a strange tale about being dead and being haunted by a ghost from the past. It is based on a very surreal dream I had which I can’t even begin to explain!

Musically and thematically there is a nod the Beatles, who were the masters of The Surreal and The Trippy, and  did ask myself “WWPD” (what would Paul do?) when I came up with the McCartney-esque bassline.

For anyone interested in the audio aspect. I used the fantastic UBK-1 compressor plugin by Kush Audio on pretty much everything on this track. I find it particularly wonderful on acoustic guitar, which in this case was a beautiful custom Atkin Guitars Small Jumbo with cedar top.

The UBK-1 makes easy work out of getting nice fat bass tones (Fender Jazz Deluxe). Much love to UBK!
