Cool! Glad to see you join the remix business.

I like the fairly minimalist approach to Shannon’s songs. They don’t need much instrumentation and ornamentation, as she’s got such a strong, clear, and powerful voice.

Opening with a simple “Cowboy Junkies” style guitar underpinning the pella is quite suitable, and I like that it never gets too busy. The radio callbacks, using Shannon’s own voice to decorate the song, is all it needs.

Those heavy strums really suit the pella, especially like the chord choices you’ve built around the chorus (and the subsequent guitar/piano melodies). Really nice, my ears say thanks.

What a lovely venture! I feel like I am sitting the same room with you and Shannon. I love how in this remix I can hear Shannon’s breath, which brings me right into the world of the song. And your piano playing makes me wish so much that I could play piano. Bravo on your first remix!

You look out from a warm, still room into a dark space punctuated by a street light. In the light’s glow, you see the snowflakes falling. The wind blows them in patterned funnels, like leaves in Autumn. You see steam rising from a culvert below, with an ethereal wet warmth radiating from the street.
You imagine a single snowflake,
perfectly patterned, landing on a metal grill, and then, keeping its shape until the end, dissolving into water.

Here the guitar fits the voice in a fragile moment not unlike a snowflake’s fall, or the rise of steam from a cold night.
