This is the first track on my album "These Other Words", I hope that you like the song. I'll eventually get everything from both my albums on here for download.

This was, in my opinion, the best audio submission you've ever worked on! I think its strongest point is probably how well you try to appeal to your audience. The craziest part of this is probably around 2:09 when it starts changing completely. It seems like that would be the kind of thing that would show up at the end of the song. I was confused as to how it could only be half over by then. I love how strong your voice is.

You just don't go for any bullcrap. While it lacks a lot of fanciness, it doesn't need it, because it's so emotional on its own. I couldn't even tell what instruments you were using. You were really pouring your heart into this. I can see why it has a 4.59. It even has a bit of a sinister tone to it, although it's mostly sad. It's so nice to hear the things you've worked so hard on.

What you had to say about this song really means the world to me. This is one of the nicest reviews I've ever read about my music and it gave me chills to know I've touched someone that much with a song. This song "To Follow A Lie" is about how people run themselves into holes with their own lies. I recorded it around the same time as "Bad Words" and for my 2nd album this is the first track and Bad Words is the last. My 2nd album hasn't officially been released yet but it should be coming out in early October to iTunes and everywhere else. This song I was using a Synth and a guitar mostly, I also had some drum machine and other keyboard effects. I'm glad you like the transition, earlier recordings of this song had a completely different distorted electric guitar for the ending but it just didn't fit so then I created this one and found that it worked perfectly with the rest of the song. Thank you so so soooo much for listening!
