Making A Way

Warm and soulful piano work duets with Tancredi’s voice, presenting a melodic counterpoint that leaves plenty of space for the developing instrumentation. Quickly accompanied by a soft and smooth bass tone filling the gaps with embellished root note traversal. Paired with a dry and earnest sounding percussive section, this gives the track a deliberate tone of movement and pace without sacrificing its atmosphere of laid-back soul.

Layered vocals give a choir effect emphasising the personal and open content of the lyrics. ‘…I can’t see past my pain…’, though delivered with easy listening characteristics, the words to this track tell a story of hope and recovery amidst a grim situation. 

Sophisticated use of reverb, combined with a delicate balance of dry and wet sounds in the mix, gives ‘Making A Way’ a sonic depth that massively accentuates both the lead vocals and the choral backing vox in the choruses. Overall, the instrumentation throughout the piece serves as a backdrop for dynamic vocal play and embellishment. 

In particular focussing on lead vocal improvisation and melodic exploration, the songs finale is a peak summarisation of everything it led to previously. The choir is in full swing, delivering a powerful and bodied repetition of the main hook. The slowly evolving percussive section is now at it’s most driving and gently pulsating presence, again articulating a balance between compressed, produced drum sounds and an organically ‘live’ feeling accompaniment. All combined, the now familiar voicings of the instrumentation quickly wind down leaving -like when we started- just the piano and voice to ring out the song.
