very nice the basic piano tune.
what you ve done i calling: better the music without vocal cause your playing with the piano gives more emotion than vocal.
good job

This one grew on me while listening. Beautiful subtle orchestrations.

This just leaves me speechless. Which is not to say that I won’t say anything, because that would be a crime.

The instrumentation is absolutely fantastic. Very sensitive, very emotional, and very appropriate to the vocals.

Outstanding work.

This online mixing thing is in the end a make do affair.

There are not many mixers whom i have regret for. Regret in the sense that it’s not a Neuman mic on that vocal , the atmosphere and scale of real strings, a Bosendofer in the live room at Abbey road and the time and money to make it the best sound it can be.

I could say that about most of your work . Lesser individuals get the chance so why not you ?

you did a great job on Narva’s gorgeous pell here, mr. dog, sir. i’ve listened to the original a 100 times since it came out and this soundbed is the perfect home for that angst & honesty.

It’s typically a cliche when someone says a take on something is “new” or “refreshing.” This rendition of this song was totally that for my ears. It sounds like nothing else I have ever heard (arguably I don’t listen to enough stuff). This is just really neat and again it is such a testament to your remarkable talent and ability to get the emotional and musical register of a piece so right. Stuff like this really makes me wish I could sing :-). Stupendous job OD.

this is what I think more modern classical music should sound like. If it did, I would have orchestra season tickets. Lovely!

Great song & very nice work.
I like this wonderful piano-playing; the orchestra is giving the perfekt background for it.

well done!

Such a lovely piece…wonderful voice and lyric of Narva9 - the sustaining orchestral part is splendid…your talent shines (and is always so fine to indulge ones ears in) - loved it Old Dog!

Thank you so much OD,

I’ve been listening to this on repeat all night. It is so lonely and sad and at moments so jarring (in a good way - because writers block is jarring - at least to me) it is unbearably beautiful.

You have an uncanny way of making my “sow’s ear” vocals (warbly sustains, weird timing and all) into a OD silk purse.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thank YOU! - recently I’ve been trying to write some lyrics myself, and I find it almost impossibly hard, so I’m full of admiration for people like you. And you don’t need to be so modest about your singing, it has a direct, honest quality that I really like.
BTW how did the lullaby project work out?

Beautiful work!
Had to stop typing to hit play for the fourth time. I really like the progressions too, so soothing. :)

Yet more proof that sophistication and emotion can and do reinforce each other- a treat no matter what level it’s appreciated on.

Love the piano old dog.
It flows throughout the piece effortlessly and complements Narva9’s melody without being intrusive. I have heard this pella a few times previously but had never really “listened” until now. Well done!
Thanks for putting up the instrumental too!

simply beautiful.

The Narva9 & OldDog Combination always shines bright.
Really Really Nice.

At first I did not like this! I admired the technical side but for you this is a given. I left it alone and moved on but kept coming back for a listen as more and more people seemed to like it!

The problem I realised is that it’s too good!

Another Gem!!
