Wow Kara, the way you describe Rob’s talent hits the nail. And Martijn’s bass combined with Rob’s words and harmonica play is stunning. The uke addition is brilliant. Love it.

Enjoyed by me too, Martijn. It’s a pity you and Will are separated by four hundred and fifty years. You could’ve done some great work together, “Live. Direct from the London Globe”…

This is the hippest, most relatable Shakespeare I’ve ever heard! Subtle rhythms, melodic bass, atmospheric harmonica — and is that ukulele?? The treatment is uniquely beautiful! Awesome track Kara!!!

Have you heard David Gilmour doing the summer’s day one? I believe it’s #98, search youtube

This is possibly the only time that you’ll hear words by rob walker and William Shakespeare combined into one opus…
It’s disquieting yet gratifying to hear your own work come back at you in a format you would never have thought of yourself… and with my own harmonica!

Thanks again , Kara. We’ve produced some beautiful work together over the years, haven’t we ?!

Hahaha! YES!

I totally know the feeling… it’s such a trip! And yeah, I love your harmonica part! (I’ve been playing harmonica quite a bit myself the last year+ and just had to include yours).

Thank you for sharing your gifts with us, Rob. You’re right! We sure have! 😊

Well-put as to an aspect of Rob Walker’s work in the description; and your crisp production and arrangement does a great job of highlighting how something can feel both immediate and reflective. It somehow reminds me of David Byrne or the B-52s’ ability to make music that marries a certain nervous tension with wry absurdity.

Oooo… thank you for your deep listening. I love that — “immediate and reflective.” That’s exactly how I hoped it would feel… like the gravity of life and death.

I like the way you blend in the elements of this song to create a unique whole. The harmonica and the vaguely-early-1970s-spy-movie rhythmic melody somehow all fit perfectly with the Bard.

Delicate and precise. Sort of like Alan Parsons meets Supertramp. Love the sound of the uke.

Really engaging track! Robs great poetry and top rendition of the bards sonnet sit atop a super cool fidgety bass and sound like it was always meant to be like that. Ending is brill. Bravo x 10
