It’s Monday and time for a new sample of the soon to be released “Disclaimer” EP. This song is called “Fool-Hearted.” You can here it by going to my site - http://dathompson.com

A little background on this song…
I happened to be riding a ferry from Bainbridge Island and saw a couple that were having a bit of an argument. After taking what seemed to be an exceptional lashing, the man lowered his head a bit and gazed apologetically over at the gal on his arm who laughed and seemed to find some reconciliation.
The notion of a sort of fool-hearted dedication came to my mind and seemed to work well with a melody I had floating around in my head the previous couple of weeks.
Stylistically we decided to go with an alternate accent shuffle, which the amazing Mike Stone kicks out on solo drums with brushes on snare and bass kick.
Vocally we went with background on the chorus and aimed for a tight male vocal, almost barber-shop harmony sound to accent a bit of a care free notion.
