Far Away Stables – A Beggar’s Plea

Such a sweet guitar intro, almost bluegrass with the style. The vocalist is going to blow you away. I’ve heard some amazing songbirds in my time but few have the power he does. Even when he’s pulled back and in a mellow groove you can feel all that strength behind the voice. It’s clear, round, full and oh so bold. There is just a bit of a ragged edge to his voice that he uses at will to put emphasis on certain lyrics. You aren’t going to be busting a move a move on the dance floor to this song, but you can take your S.O. out for a nice sway. Since this wasn’t an a cappella song, let’s chat about the music for a minute. It’s a really simple musical composition. It’s a great match for the lyrics and singing style. Nice light guitar and drum work underscore a simply amazing song.

I wish I had been able to get to this earlier in the week. I loved the song so much! Some songs just grab you and hold on, this is one of them. My phone will be better for having it on there and I will be pleased as punch to introduce this song to some of my friends. Playlist wise I see this working well with my slower paced Cold, Red and Chevelle.
