“The Sacred and Profane”

Feb 15 2013 Posted by in music, news | Comments Off on “The Sacred and Profane”

I wouldn’t usually devote an entire post to one measly little song, but I’m inordinately proud of this one. “The Sacred and Profane” dates back 10 years, when I originally one-man-banded it in a metallic style. Always dug it, but having by-necessity performed its vocal as well, that left something to be desired, tainting the whole thing. When Shannon and I started Winebox a few years back, it remained a contender for our repertoire, but needed a more organic treatment. We recorded a new version, but it leaned too far the opposite direction, too thin.

Recently, I re-vamped this beast with a gnarly, Zeppelin-esque guitar tone, layered in some organ for color, beefed up the mix, and now share the definitive version with you. It’s my first song where I feel like all the elements really gelled equally, from the lyrics and melody to the performance and production.

If that track does it for you, please check out other Winebox jams (originals and covers) via BandPage, ReverbNation, or SoundCloud, share them, and be sure to Like us on Facebook for updates.
