I've Got A Woman...No, seriously.

I'm still in 'Country denial'. I don't do country (unless there's a substantial paycheque involved). Anyway, like I said in an earlier blogpost - When I've been well enough I've been sitting in my bedroom with a digital recording deck trying to write and record an album worth of songs. I have about 6 now and need 10 (minimum). This is one of them...as per the request from Delores. You tell me if this is Blues or Country lol?  There's nothing to see on the video - only hear, so you may as well carry on with other things if you are kind enough to listen. Thanks :)

    1. Thank you Dawna - that's really kind of you. Maybe I'll have to describe it as 'Country Blues' lol.

  3. It sounds like a country song, but the way you sing it isn't country. Like you, I don't do country. I can listen to maybe one or two songs, and then I have to switch the radio station. That said, I do like this song very much!

  5. Very, very nice. Who cares what genre it gets labeled? Let others do that - especially if they want to pay you to use it. I've been very busy lately so just in case I haven't done so yet, let me say how good it is to have you back here again. Bestest wishes & etc.

  6. The Country or Blues question is a bit superfluous. Should stop struggling with it if I were you. You have a beautiful singing voice which holds the attention but the song's a bit weak, pretty enough, but needs something more innovative in it. More words, perhaps even a story! Sounds like I'm saying embrace that Country music, boy :)

    1. Thanks Alec - when my personal development coach, music advisor, manager/agent first heard it he said 'Boring, too much use of the word woman ...move on.'

      I may have to embrace country lol - seems it's what I do best.

  8. God knows what made me click on your blog to see if you were still MIA (so have I been so you're forgiven). How nice to see you back Rory and pleased to hear of your gradual recovery. You do have a lovely voice. I'd class the song as crossover country. Get busy on those other 4 songs young man. Welcome back.

    1. Hey Craig - I am working on them - but have yet to really develop a 'style' - maybe crossover will be my thing? Anyway, good to see you :)

  10. It's more folky than anything. You remember the folky days? Sort of country, but not really. Anyway, I like it! <3

    1. I have to say Austan - I was thinking 'folky' when I wrote it but used a blues chord progression. Oh I should stop fretting over these things and just let it be. Good to see you :)
