This Weeks Song
ANGELS ARE HERE
The first EP of the new trilogy JD HINTON – ECHO PARK begins with the song ANGELS ARE HERE. Some songwriting begins with the music. Some with the lyric. This song started with the title, but music and words flowed out together as I began to play chords on the guitar. As the writing progressed, I moved to the piano and finished the song at the keyboard.
I found a studio in a small Texas town and called in musicians to record the early version. Outside the studio, train whistles could be heard. This interrupted the recording, but it added an atmosphere that made the day.
Later in Los Angeles when plans for an EP trilogy began, I wanted to record this song for the project. Each day was a wonderful discovery. Thank you to the musicians and the singers. Your sound has lifted me again and again.
I believe songs should be a personal experience. My experience with ANGELS ARE HERE will go unspoken so that you can have your own.
As always, thanks for listening.
