Pry Me Open - Original
« on: March 26, 2020, 10:06:49 am »
Hi everyone!

Very excited to share my first original, called 'Pry Me Open'. Actually I had this tune in my mind since 2 years ago, recorded it on my phone but was too busy to continue further. Now with the Covid-19 outbreak, I found time to bring this song to life.

The song is about someone suffering from lifelong anxiety and just want someone to pry him open, expose his weakness to the world and be done with it. That person is me of course.





Lyrics are in the Youtube video description. I know my vocals could improve much further as I feel I am quite pitchy in the song. Also, I just simply don't have the singer voice.

I created this song heavily influenced by the songs that I love the most: Fix You, Fake Plastic Tress, Run. I wish through this song I can create that emotional alternative rock soul uplifting kind of vibe.

Christopher,

Bravo and  8)  8)  8) vibes for you.

I so enjoyed listening to your song ... the arrangement, the instrument work, the lead and the vocal.  Nothing wrong with your singing voice as far as I am concerned.

I hope you will be inspired to produce some more songs, sure you have lots to share.

Really pretty. Fully realized and really well written, played and sung. I'm so pleased something good is coming out of this, and that you had time to create this excellent song.

Wow man that was amazing and for a first effort it was sweet! My first original just consisted of me and the acoustic, props for the drums and lead guitar and everything. I suffer from anxiety also, plus i was diagnosed with schizophrenia so i can relate. very well done man!! Cant wait to hear more.

Welcome to the community Christopher.  :)

Your song is heartbreakingly real. I love every single element of this recording. Your song construction is dynamic and complete. Your voice draws me closer, there's an expressiveness and intimacy there, the sensitive bass lines you've composed, the slightly harsh Fender tones speak of the harshness and hardship of living with anxiety. I love the high notes and love the vulnerability and simplicity of the last few notes.

The only very slight thing I'd pull back would be the ride (I think) that starts at about 1.50.

I LOVE  this.
