Home Sweet Home - Background Information


Home Sweet Home was written in January 2013 as a test case to see if I could write a song suitable for some kind of vocal arrangement. I didn't spend too much time on the lyrics and neither on the music. In fact the whole thing just took about 20 minutes to put together. The vocal harmonies is where the most work is to be expected. This demo recording is just a first tak,e layering some vocals on without any thought for arrangement. I was thinking about sending the song to a vocal band to see if they could do anything with it.

After the song was written, I re-read the lyric and discoverd that maybe there was something deeper hidden in these lines as I myself left home when I was barely 17, never to return. The song obviously needs more work on it, perhaps I may try it out at the Lakeside Stories singer songwriter project later this year.
