I wasn't going to put this out because it was just a test. I needed to do something before recording my podcast episode today to make sure everything sounded great with the new pop filter (and also to see how well it would improve the quality if at all).
I've been listening to Bye Bye by Gryffin featuring Ivy Adara a lot lately. The acoustic version, it really touches something in me, and when I was trying to think of what could I do to really test the filter I said well, I'll just sing the song it's not going to go out publicly anyways.
So then I sang it, I ran my favorite from Adobe Audition and then I played it back, and I cried. There are plenty of reasons why, the audio sounds the best it ever has, the first time I ever used this microphone I tested it in a similar fashion (singing a song) and so I was shocked that it sounded so good, the song is beautiful, sweet, and sad, and that it touches me. It touches me so deeply.
In talking with my beautiful friend Kate, she encouraged me to release it because we all feel pain, we all feel sadness and it should be shared that it's okay. If this caused me to have such an emotion, as the singer, maybe it'll open something up in other people too. So here it is. Note it's not perfect, produced, any of that stuff, but if you want to hear it here goes. I've also linked the Gryffin's version because it's absolutely gorgeous. He does such a great job on his music and Ivy Adara sounds so beautiful and perfect live. It's a great track and everyone should give it a listen.
