Description
A few months back, Peter contacted me about one of his tunes, "Devil Wind". He had posted an acoustic version in October (which you can hear HERE), but had a vision for something more with it. In his own words:

"I thought this song might come up okay with a proper band arrangement, so I sent an email to Sig asking whether he and Chris (Rok) might be interested in having a look at it.
They both agreed, which was fantastic, and I couldn't have put it in any better hands. When Sig sent me a draft version of what he and Chris had done with the lead vocal and acoustic tracks I had sent, I couldn't stop smiling. I was blown away. It is such a privilege to have Sigmund and Chris lend their fantastic music and productions skills to a song of mine. Just stoked!
Thanks, guys. And thanks MacJams for making collaborations like this possible. Long may you run. Kind regards to all, Peter."


Peter is a great songwriter, and I really enjoyed this song when he first posted it, so I was pretty happy to have the opportunity to create a bigger version. I took Peter's original tracks and added electric guitars, electric and acoustic pianos, some additional percussion, and of course a lead break. I even found a cool wind track to use. Once that was all complete I sent the track to Chris (rok41) so he could add his magic touch to the song. The bass track he sent me was stunning! He also added some killer harmony vocals to the choruses.

Peter is a great guy, and extremely easy to work with. I feel very privileged to work with such talented people as Peter and rok. I realize that may sound like lip service, but to those of you who have done collab projects here at macjams, you know what I mean - it is very special thing to create music and art with people you like and respect.

So, I offer Chris' and my version of Peter B's great song "Devil Wind". Comments are welcome - we really hope you enjoy!

Btw, the pic is that of a Bunyip, something whose existence I had no idea of, but since Peter sings of it in this tune, I found myself curious about them. They are (supposedly) mythological creatures from Australia, and they don't look particularly friendly!

Lyrics
Devil Wind - Peter Bowen (October 2014)

Verse

I’ve been walking the long road
Too far from my home
Devil wind swirling round me
I’m out here on my own
Angry clouds up above me
Look like they’re planning to stay
Too many schemers and not enough dreamers
I might not make the next day
And I feel like I’m falling
I don’t know which way to go
Dingoes are howling and the bunyip is prowling
Is this the end of the show?

Devil wind
That old devil wind
Vultures wheeling the up draughts
With me on their mind
Ancient drones, keepers of the tombstone
I keep looking behind
Thunderstorms in the distance
Dust cloud raising behind
Too much drinking and not enough thinking
I’m going out of my mind
And I feel like I’m falling
I don’t know which way to go
Dingoes are howling and the bunyip is prowling
Is this the end of the show?

Devil wind
That old devil wind
Here it is!

And I feel like I’m falling
I don’t know which way to go
Dingoes are howling and the bunyip is prowling
Is this the end of the show?

Devil wind
That old devil wind
It’s coming for me! Devil wind.
That old devil w....i......n.......

This wind just blew me away! The beginning was beautiful! Loved that acoustic guitar. The whole song progressed magnificently. A very well written song and wonderful production. Sig, your guitar continues to floor me, and Chris's bass is always something new and adventuring! That piano was a special treat also. Macjams is where I hear the best music. What a collab! What a band! D/L'd

Outstanding! Of course it helps to start with a great tune and vocal. Great arrangement. Love the interplay between the bass and lead guitar during the solo. Awesome production and a great mix to match.

Andrew!
Great to see you my friend! Thank you for stopping by to listen and comment. Peter's great songwriting made this an easy project, and Chris' sense of timing is just incredible - he knows exactly when to riff, and when to simply hold down that low end. This was a fun project, and are happy you enjoyed - thanks again!

A privilege
I said it above, but I will say it again, "what a privilege" to have Sig and Chris give one of my songs their magical treatment. Sig has such an ear for where a song might best go (and the musical chops to back it up) and I still smile every time I hear some of Chris's bass riffs just ignite sections of the song. Deepest bows to you two guys. Till next time :-) Thanks, Peter.

one that seems to hit home here lately. Well structured tune with some catchy changes through out. Great job by Peter and Chris, they really know how to deliver the goods. Vocals are spot on, the mix sounds fantastic, bass carries the tune well and I always like your guitar.

Bunyips and dingoes
Very classy piece. Reminds me of MJs own KCsgroove composition-wise. Or vice versa maybe. The mix is fantastic, and you and Chris play with confident precision and restraint, adding to the original in all the right ways. I can see (hear) why Peter was so excited about this. Well done, gents.

Hey Les
Thanks for stopping by to listen and comment. This project really was a lot of fun to work on - I think it must be something about those guys down under - just great songwriters! And no one can hold down the low end better than rok. We really appreciate your support here, my friend!

paul f. page said 780 days ago (March 9th, 2015)
What strikes me...
...is the arrangement with the little details like that piano run at 1:28 and the little arpeggiated piano track that cooks behind everything else, subtling keeping the rhythm moving. And the bass is always perfectly placed. Guitar bridge at 3:00 is so expertly played. This whole song is absolutely pro in concept, performance, and production. Much to learn from such a display of talent here. Wonderful.
