Seth Sings Soft Songs – He Once Was
Today I’m sending you a video of “He Once Was”. It’s one of my favorite songs to play. It’s pretty quiet so I don’t often get to play it in live music atmospheres because people tend to enjoy more peppy stuff in live situations. I wish I could play songs like this at every show, and maybe I should just do it, I don’t know. My Seth Sings Soft Songs series was a great pleasure and a challenge to me because I compiled all my quiet material into two sets of music. Performing that way was very foreign to me because I’ve been doing so many band shows or loop shows… stuff like that. I like being able to have an outlet for this type of music because it really is a big part of my musical personality.
So here’s the VIDEO
and here’s AUDIO ONLY
and here’s the STUDIO RECORDING from my solo album “Doubting Won’t Do”. I hope you’ll enjoy one or all of these!
The rest of this month will be devoted to scoring out Act 2 of my rock opera, 23 Psaegz. It’s a huge undertaking! 40 minutes worth of music for multiple instruments… I love doing it though! Composing, writing and improvisation are my favorite things to do right now. I’m so happy to get to spend this creative time. It’s just in me, the music, always… I’m just constantly thinking in notes, so to have a vent for all this sound bouncing around inside me is just pure joy.
