Hey everybody! How's it going? Hope you all are awesomely well! BRAND NEW MUSIC today! Another piano driven instrumental beat! This one was inspired in part by Ariana Grande, Vanessa Carlton, Michelle Branch, and Santana. I have always loved each of the artists I just mentioned, all are fantastic in their own right. The main piano line came from drawing inspiration from Vanessa Carlton's MASSIVE HIT, "A Thousand Miles" and a couple of Ariana Grande's early hits. The guitar parts borrows from one of my previously released compositions, and also takes a lot of inspiration from Michelle Branch and Santana, as I wanted to keep that spring/summer relaxed, kind of Beach Boys feel. The bass line is used to balance both the guitar and piano, and I think it works beautifully! It just feels SUPER SMOOTH! The drum kit uses my favourite clap and kick to keep the beat! The 90's and early 2000's were very influential for me, in terms of musically, since I grew up in that period. Although, I can take inspiration from anywhere, and do listen to all types of music. While producing this new track, I remembered that piano rock was REALLY big during the late 90's and early to mid 2000's, so there's more behind the scenes inspiration for this beat. Furthermore, with the weather getting warmer, I think think having a piano as the main lead instrument for any composition, instrumental, and beat just fits the spring and summer seasons perfectly! I hope you all enjoy it, let me know what you think, and please SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel by clicking here! Thanks everybody! Talk to you all again soon.
