Dave Mohan principally a songwriter / composer / lyricist and recording artist rather than a front of stage performer, showcases one of his most successful collaborations at the heart of his musical nexus with a poignant, gentle song of loss and longing, featuring the hauntingly beautiful voice of Carolina de la Muella in “Somewhere Beyond the Blue”
The song starts with a sequence of notes forming a relaxing melody as you delve in the story, while the smooth, haunting vocals of Carolina de la Muella significantly impact the listener’s experience expressing the emotional connection to the song
The lyrics are very well written, evoking emotions that contribute to the song’s overall impact
The instrumental arrangement is very well crafted with delicate piano along subtle interweavings of solo cello/upper strings, along a music video that sets the perfect mood for the song
The song is original but one that draws its underlying inspiration from a well-known Bach prelude (BWV 998) which modulates its way to the foreground in the song’s brief colorful wordless vocalise outro.
