Toronto, ON-based singer-songwriter and guitarist, Nelson Sobral has unveiled his new single, “Yours & Mine”.
I personally enjoyed the single very much, as it mixes various genres such as blues, r&b, country, and rock flawlessly, creating something that everyone can enjoy, regardless of their genre preferences. Also, the lyrics are certainly something that everyone can relate to, give it a listen and see if you agree!
The single is about “loving someone regardless of their faults, especially since we all have ’em.”
“I originally tracked the whole song (drums, guitar, bass & vocals – with Rafael Rodriguez on drums) over at Story Arts Centre with Mike Langford engineering/producing. Unfortunately, the track proved to be unusable, not because of anything Mike or Rafael did or didn’t do but because I had recorded it in the wrong key! I realized after letting the recording sit for a few months that pitching it up would benefit my voice and the track so I set about re-recording all the guitars, bass & vocals at my home studio “Bowery Sound” with Mattie Leon helping to engineer & produce and he also recorded a sweet organ track that sits just right in the song…we were fortunate to not have to re-do Rafael Rodriguez’s swaggering, soulful drum track!”
