Hello world! In my blog series titled, "Behind the Tune" my goal is to give you all some perspective into the songwriting and producing behind my tracks. My hope is that you will be able to read these posts in order to learn more about me, my intentions in my writing, and in turn you will be able to feel and connect more when you are listening to my music. So...first off, thank you for taking the time to be right here!
The first song that I will be beginning this series with is "More In Love". This is a song for all you hopeless romantics out there. I myself have been a romantic, and I think that many people truly long to feel "motion picture love" as you might say. You can probably picture this in your head: a black and white movie, maybe it's Christmas time, the main character falls in love with his dream girl and eventually they wind up living happily ever after. It's this feeling that inspires us and places a craving in our hearts for such romance. I mean, who wouldn't want to find their dream partner and live happily ever after?
While most relationships and love stories aren't picture perfect, because humans are not perfect beings, I do believe that being a romantic requires an idealistic view on relationships. A view that while a relationship will continue to grow, it won't lose the magic of the honeymoon phase, because you will continue to fall for your person every day for the rest of your life. THIS is the idea that "More In Love" attempts to portray. "More In Love" is an affirmation from the romantic to their significant other, as it states, "Every day I fall more in love with you."
I tried to the echo this idea (as best as I could) in the production by keeping the track simple and ambient. The main focal point of the track is on raw instrumentation (i.e. piano, guitar) which personally I think gives the tune an authentic feel.
"More In Love" is a melt-your-heart kind of song. It's not just the song that you sing to your significant other when you fall for them the first time. It's the song that you sing to them when you fall for them every time.
