BUT,  an official “teaser” has finally been released on her website. How thrilled are all you Sara Bareilles fans out there!?!

 

What new songs do you think will make to cut for the record? Perhaps ‘Only Shadows’?

Song: Letters to Julie Anne

Artist: Danna Richards

 

 

Danna is a youtuber, and an internet friend of mine. She started her YouTube career with an ambitious ”song a day” project in which she wrote and performed a new song every day. That, my friends, is a remarkable undertaking. She now has hundreds of gems on YouTube, (about 300… WOW). I’ve been a fan of hers since the beginning of the project, and I am so happy to have been. She is great. Absolutely wonderful.

‘Letters to Julie Anne’ is just one of the many gems. It is a beautiful acoustic masterpiece. Instrumentally, the song is simple – a guitar and her voice.  The song begins with strumming on the guitar. Danna starts to sing. Her voice is delicate, but just builds as you get to the chorus. She belts out the chorus in contrast to the verse. Lyrically, the song is beautiful. It is a very well written – very poetic:

 

“letters to Julie Anne. Letters I couldn’t stamp. Words laced in kerosene, they wouldn’t do anything, but burn her hands”

 

The dynamic changes between the verses and choruses pull the listener in, and spark an interest in the song. They really emphasize the emotions of the words. You can really feel what she is singing about. Overall, the song is beautiful. Danna’s vocals are remarkable. She is a rock star.

 

where you can get it: no where technically… but send her a little message or comment on facebook / twitter / youtube,  and I’m sure she could work something out. She’s a total sweetheart.

Peace and love y’all!
