Thanks Carroll.

I'm freshly back from holiday today so I've been going through my email this morning. When I got to John's email where this song was attached, I didn't get 30 seconds in before I had my idea. 10 minutes later the song was written. John didn't give me any direction with the song so I just went where my imagination took me -- a song about following the masses. Now, I've come to The Junction and read all these other ideas and I'm thinking I might have acted too quickly. Some great ideas in this thread. What to do, what to do?

I heard J. J. Cale telling of recording "Cocaine", playing each of three strings, one at a time, to get the distinctive riff, simple as it is. Master Evans, your layering is far more complex. And it works. You'd have to pick a part to play along with a recording to do a live show, but that could work too. And recorded music can travel further and faster than you ever need to, so keep exploring the possibilities. I was telling a girl on Linkedin Songwriters group to come here and listen to Evans & Stokes. Her work has similarities, I think.

Despite 1,000's of years of Songwriting humans have not exhausted the possibilities. There will always be another Song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? www.garyeandrews.com

Hello y'all.

This song is done. It always feels so great to get another song out to the world. Check out our creepy new single Dead-Eyed Dolls -- a cryptic little ditty about the masks we wear -- featuring some very uncharacteristic vocals by our very own John Evans. Available tomorrow (the 3rd) wherever digital music is sold. Request it on Dead to Self Radio or download/stream from your preferred service below...

Uncharacteristic vocals? Is that John talking at the beginning?

I may or may not be an enigma

He's "singing" in the chorus. It's more like "grumbling" but the effect is neat.
