Read this week’s Residency Post below: First Single – “Council”
Council was the first track I wrote for Wayfarer. I remember it started when I was listening back over one of my “jams” that was recorded into the voice memo section of my phone. Every time I go to play guitar I end up just hitting the record button on my phone and listening back to the session days/weeks later. Most of the time it isn’t fruitful, but this occasion was different. I remember hearing the chord progression that is played throughout the first half of the song and instantly something triggered in my brain. That evening I recorded the demo for what became Council. This first demo was only about two minutes long and was essentially what the first half of the song is in its final state. However, after leaving it be for a couple days, I knew the demo I had was too good not to add a “chorus” or “highly melodic” section on the end. This is where the second half of the song, with its burst of energy came to life and where I tied the whole lyrical picture together.
Council is the 1st track on the album and I feel it is a great introductory piece to the album and for that reason I think it was the best choice for the first single. Please enjoy, I would love to hear feedback as well, and don’t forget to share it with your friends, family and acquaintances!
Thanks for everything, enjoy the single
