Merry Christams from Acoustic Fusion!
This song with lyrics by HC Holbert is one of my favorites that we have done together as Acoustic Fusion.
When HC sent me the lyrics to make a song with I was so taken with the powerful message of his words. There are acts of kindness that each of us is capable of every day and even the smallest act of kindness toward someone could have a lasting impact on their lives. I love the message behind the words “don’t have to be an artist, don’t have to be a star, just be the real you, ’cause that’s the best by far”
Just today I revisited this track and decided I could do better on audio production.
I started completely over from scratch. Went back to the original recording and tried different things but you know what I ended up doing? Just leaving it as recorded because musically that was the best tone. So no compression at all and just a little reverb and it was done! Took me over a year to get to this point with the audio but I’m happy with the less is more approach. It finally sounds right to my ears!
Hope you enjoy it and please do download it for Free:
Here’s the Video of the actual recording of the song. BTW, The whole reason I overdubbed a harmony vocal was because the guitar overpowered the solo acoustic recording. In a way I’m glad that happened because I like it better with the additional vocals added.
