Higher Ground is a bit more personal than the other songs I’ve written and posted on this site. The interesting thing is that it didn’t end up like I expected, perhaps they never do. Anyway, the song seemed to take on a life of it’s own when we were recording, at times reminding me of a ’50s Bebop/Rock tune. What I had heard in my head was much different. Our recording engineer said it reminded him of Dire Straits. =)
The music begins very subtly and builds layer upon layer by adding more vocals and instrumentation until it reaches the crescendo at the final chorus. Give it a listen. If you like the song, download the mp3 and share the music video with your friends on Facebook and Twitter. I would appreciate this very much. Thanks in advance!
