Haunting foreshadowing followed by rich, reflective vocals and strings move waves of clarity and grief in forgiveness of the self-denying role you played in the name of “love.” Suppressed emotion erupts into an orchestral power ballad, igniting life as you know it. Deeper introspection leads to elevated explosiveness of passionate vocals and a wailing guitar. A heart-wrenching duet between pleading vocalist and forlorn horn brings you to your knees before echoing alarms announce the arrival of reinforcements for your rebirth from the flames.
Written from the perspective of someone trying to reach you, their loved one, in the struggle of PTSD, this song captures the progressive desperation that is often hidden behind closed doors. Layers of musical metaphors and scraps of poetry are composed as a floatation device, holding your head above water long enough to regain sight of the nearest lighthouse. A candle in the darkness, a wholesome voice finds you alone, offering to guide you home. Groovy bass line, gristly guitar and punchy drummer set the pace on a journey both far from home and near the heart. Orchestral strings and horns enrichen the soundtrack with soaring emotion. Resounding guitar solo and hysterical rock drums drive you through pandemonium as warm vocals escalate to a firestorm. Finally, the cathedral organ paves the last leg with a choir of horns announcing your arrival. In a time of transcending global trauma, Can’t Let Go was written, with love, for the world.
Inspiration hit at sunset on the soft, sandy shore. Ocean waves gave way to a lulling melody and lyrics of longing for a magical kind of love. Yearning poured out on paper by the moonlight with a dream of what could be, wished upon endless stars. To capture the scenery of conception, southern charm vocals and twinkling piano are woven with blues and sultry jazz to fulfill a soulful sensation. With no one out in the abyss to answer the fiery call, a wailing guitar provides a passionate reply.
MCSVG (McSavage) is a hot new singer songwriter duo, Melissa Collins (MC) and Savannah Gates (SVG). With musical roots deep in the hills of Eastern Kentucky, lead singer, MC, is known for her “soulful vocals, rife with emotion.” A lifetime of playing piano and singing led her to LA, where she penned songs featured in Emmy Award-Winning web series and was submitted for six categories in the 56th Grammys. Her work has also been recorded by other Grammy-nominated artists. Another country girl, SVG was raised in the Texas Panhandle with a range of musical influence but emphasis on classical and jazz. “She has a prodigious way of capturing the human condition in her lyrics and consistently elevates songs with her poetic flair,” contrary to her engineering background. Although her primary focus is writing and producing, you can find her background vocals supporting powerhouse, MC, on their recently released single, Magic. MCSVG is currently writing and producing their first EP out of home-base, Fort Worth, TX. The combination of their diverse life experience is evident in their production, making it impossible to fit their sound into a box. They believe contrast is key and collaborate with other compassionate artists to create masterpieces promoting love and joy. Recognizing music’s profound potential for healing and the power possessed as both musician and composer, MCSVG designs their authentic compositions beyond words and melody for a lasting impact on the listeners world-wide.
