By Chris Moore:
At long last, here it is…
…an acoustic performance of the debut single from The 2010 Project!
The title of the album is a bit misleading, as it was only just released in July 2011, but the concept of the album is that of rebuilding and reassessing, venting anger and achieving forward motion. For me, the year 2010 was a 365-day-long process of accepting that which I couldn’t change and grabbing hold of all that truly mattered. This extended to all realms: personal, professional, music, reading, and more.
The 2010 Project represents the culmination of a year’s worth of ideas and conflicts and hopes, all wrapped up inside twelve songs (and a hidden track…), produced by someone who has believed in me and my music since my very first album, One Step Behind the Finish Line. In fact, there’s an interesting cyclic feeling about the fact that Mike Fusco was the producer/mixer on One Step and has now produced my most recent album — the first for Em Eff Records — The 2010 Project.
“It All Comes Around,” like my previous video a couple weeks ago (“You Will Thank Me”), was written near the end of the sessions for the album. In fact, I believe “It All Comes Around” was the final song I wrote, and I know it bumped not one but two songs off from the original track listing. It was originally slotted lower, but got bumped up to track four and has taken lead role as the first single from the album. Of course, I say “single,” but I’m not sure what that exactly means anymore. I suppose what I mean is that this is the first song I would play someone from the album, and it is the one that works to my strengths — acoustic guitar and harmonica.
What I will say, also, is that this is perhaps the most difficult song on the album to perform live. I think this is true because of the specific harmonica part and the rapid-fire lyrics. In fact, listening back to this video now as I’m posting it, I realize that I can definitely play it better live now than even a few weeks ago. By the time I perform it, hopefully later this year or early next year, I’ll have it down even better.
That’s the plan, at least. 🙂
So, without further ado, I give you “It All Comes Around,” and I remind you that, if you like it, you should visit www.ChrisMooreMusic.com and go to the Store link. The album is currently streaming online for anyone to listen to, and of course, to buy if they like it enough…
See you next session!
