First new one from me in a long time.

Kind of a love song, I guess.

Recorded in my new “studio” (3rd bedroom in the new house). Almost up and running now… shine and don’t stop wondering!

Shine - A A J Russe

On my way
To bring you comfort
I found a girl
At the side of the road
She seemed hurt
And obviously suffering
So I stopped
I don’t know why

Shine she said
And don’t stop wondering
And don’t let go

She might have been somebody’s daughter
She might have been somebody’s wife

I wiped the tears
And bought her coffee
And held her hand
I watched the fire
Slowly dying
Held her tight
As it passed away

And don’t stop wondering
Please don’t let go

She might have been somebody’s daughter
She might have been somebody’s wife

It made me think
How much I love you
I know how much
But does it show?
Can you feel
My arms around you?
Or is your fire
Dying slow?

Shine she said
And don’t stop wondering
Do not let go

So I will try to keep on wondering
I will shine
And not let go

Incredible production and mix. I hear some Three Dog Night influence.

Not enough is made of your talent for musical arrangement as it's taken for granted in the shadow of your vox. You have such a huge talent, Russe. More please.

That be some good production right there. Dag nabit! I enjoy the different looks of the verse sections as the progresses. And the big vocal harmonies...I thought that ac gtr lick was gonna fly off into django territory.....always fun listening to your tunes. I learn something everytime.

Nice groove. Ever heard any Fred Eaglesmith? Backing reminds me of his band - a very good thing in my world!

Every time I think you won't be able to top what you've already done you prove that you actually can. I love the sound of this song - needless to mention your voice and songwriting. Good to hear something new from you, Andy! Keep them coming! Regards, Steffen

From about 1st 1.28 seconds I was hooked. The vibe is Just right for me (listening on laptop speakers and the song is filling the room!) .... Just the right amount of quirk to spiral that roots sound into the stratosphere! I love how you have the Reggae, Gypsy and Rock merged into one amazing showcase of Talent that cant help but shine! If you are ever in London, Let me know and we will do a Vodcast for you. Peace T
