Description
Running with the Wind
This is my 3rd project with Peter Bowen. Peter recently took our 2nd project, "Chasing Shadows", and entered it into a National Australian Songwriting contest - it made it into the top 30, which I thought was kinda cool. If you haven't heard our version, you can check it out here - (and here is Peter's original version).

I'm the first to admit that traditional folk doesn't seem as though it would mesh well with progressive rock - normally - yet I think the end result of Peter's exceptional songwriting, mixed with my own style of rock is interesting enough, and I have a lot of fun with it! Of course it takes me forever (Peter handed this one off last August!), and I really appreciate Peter's patience - no one should take 6 months to finish a song! I got rok41 involved - his smooth bass style was a natural match for what this song needed on the low end. When it was all done, Peter put the finishing touches on the mastered version, and the end result is what we have here today.

So please take a listen, and let us know what you think.

Btw, here is Peter's original version of "Running with the Wind"

Heartfelt thanks to musical brothers Chris and Peter - I'm consistently amazed by you guys!

Lyrics
Running With The Wind - Peter Bowen (August 2016) - CAPO 2

[D] Late in the [G] evening

[D] Fire in the [G] sky

[D] Venus and the [G] Dog Star dance a [C] pavane way on [G] high

[D] Slow burning [G] embers

[D] You on my [G] mind

[D] I’m wrestling with a [G] wanderlust that [C] left our love be[A]hind

[Gm7] Gulf country [C] sunrise

[Am] Welcomes in the [Dm] day

[Gm7] I’m heading [C] down the road a’ [D]way

[Gm7] I wonder what you’re [C] doing

While [Am] I play casta[Dm]way

[Gm7] While I’m out [C] here running with the [D] wind

I’m walking down the long road

Wind in my face

I’m working as a hired hand as I move from place to place

Dust in my pockets

Dust in my shoes

Another cold and lonely night has made me think for you

I work up the courage

To call you on the phone

But the message bank said you weren’t home

I’m captive to my freedom

And feeling so alone

While I’m out here running with the wind

Lead over two verses

We finally get connected

And I don't know what to say

But I'm going to say it anyway

Without you I am nothing

I'm coming home to stay

I'm tired of running with the wind

I’m tired of running with the wind

I'm tired of running with the wind

[Gm7] [C] [D] x4

Fantastic
production and performances. Never a dull moment and sounds like an album cut. Good to hear Chris again too. Love how it turned out.

Many more...
This is the third time that Sig has graciously offered to weave his magic folk/prog/rock/(insert genre) wand over one my solo acoustic outings. And, as always, he has taken the song to musical realms that I couldn’t have dreamed of. Sig's talents as a musician and arranger are exceptional and I can only, once again, thank him sincerely for his interest in my music. Thankfully, Chris came along for the ride again, as well, and having the Mr Boss Bass Man on board can only but enhance any track. Thanks, Chris. Kudos, my friends. May there be many more :-)

Hi Vic
Thanks for stopping by to listen and comment. I enjoy working on Peter's songs, and of course I would feel lost without Chris' help with the low end. We appreciate your support - thanks!

A great collaboration.
fantastic punch in the music and a six months wait to get to this seems reasonable to me. Well done guys.

enjoyed this a lot. A very polished performance, mix and production.
Very nice phrasing on the vocals Peter, love the way you sing this, gives it that special touch that only really good songs have.
Guitars sound great Sig as always and Chris is my fav bass player on any collab :-)
Sounds superb along with the wonderful arrangement and performance from a good line up of musicians.
What more can I say, brilliant work!
Enjoyed!

Hi Bob
We really appreciate you stopping by to listen and comment. I agree that Peter is an exceptional song writer, which makes a project like this lots of fun to work on. Having a pro like Chris to be involved just makes it all the better. Thanks for swinging by - means a lot to us!

I know when I see a post from you its going to be professional. The time you spend is well worth the wait. But you can't make a song work unless it's a good song to begin with. Peter should be thrilled to hear his song grow like this.
Fine work all around.

Hey Stan
Good to see you've stopped by to have a listen. We all appreciate it! I really enjoy taking Peter's songs and turning them into, well, something else. But he truly is a gifted songwriter and musician - as is Chris. I feel totally privileged to be able to work with them. Thanks again, my friend!

MJ Supergroup!
A top-notch collab. I don't see why prog and folk shouldn't blend together. But then, I've been a Jethro Tull fan since 1970...

Everything about this track works. EVERYTHING!

Be well friends!

Hi Michael
You know, I totally forgot about Jethro Tull, although I don't think I have ventured as far down the prog-rock path as they did. We really appreciate you stopping by to have a listen, and to comment - thanks my friend!
