Annette Buckley Takes A Melody for unique music project, SomeRiseSomeFall
Cork-based music ensemble SomeRiseSomeFall release their latest single, “I’ll Take A Melody” featuring Annette Buckley, on November 14th.
The unique, talent-laden Irish-Americana music eclective announce the release of their second single – the Allen Toussaint-penned, Jerry Garcia-covered, I’ll Take A Melody.
With Annette Buckley on vocals and instrumentation by Martin Leahy, this is an instantly compelling track, perfect for airplay and repeat listening. An upbeat, yet bluesy tune with a deceptively simple sound, and lyrics which capture the transformative power of music – such as the classic line “I’ll take a simple C to G, and feel brand new about it…”, and the final appeal to: “shine on, keep on shining…”
I’ll Take A Melody is the second single released by SomeRiseSomeFall on FITZZ Records, following 2015’s It’ll Shine When It Shines, with Hank Wedel and Martin Leahy. Both tracks will appear on the SomeRiseSomeFall album, SomeClimb, due for release in 2017. [The official music video for I’ll Take A Melody is produced & directed by Colm Walsh of Clap Media Ireland, atmospherically shot in black & white to stunning effect.]
