The best kept secret in music

The reason I love music is because every now and then I hear a song that just sounds really cool and I get blown away. This is that song for me today. I don't think I could possibly put into words how cool this song sounds. The vocals are outragiously AWESOME!!!!! The piano part rocks. Holy shit this is perfect...this is unbeatable...I hope you get the record deal if you don't already have one.

This song is extremely well-written and arranged, and the performance is beyond solid. I never expected to hear something this good on Garageband. It takes a great songwriter and singer to make the same four chords beautiful and engaging for over four minutes, which is what happens in this track. I think this is the best I've heard on GB. The lyrics are engaging and poetic. The production, vocals, and piano are all executed with tremendous professionalism. This song is ready for the radio. People will compare you to Tori Amos, the Bangles, and other excellent artists because this song is wonderful. This is the first song of all my reviews I'm actually going to download and listen to again.

This hauntingly beautiful, piano-based ballad is highlighted by a magnificent vocal performance. The emotional power on display here is truly amazing. The track steadily builts to a great crescendo, not because of thunderous drums or screaming guitars, but because of the singer's total commitment to conveying the emotional content of the lyrics. The jump to the upper octave for the final chorus is impressive, even somewhat moving. If this track is indicative of the rest of this band's material, they may well be "standing on the edge" of greatness. - garageband.com reviews

I awoke this morning, and i decided to do some reviews. I press play and what do i get? A beautifully written, excellently produced song with well-thought lyrics filled with moody melodies and metaphors; and an obviously professional female vocalist. The piano and vocal harmonies are all thats needed here. I listened to this song twice and seriously didn't want to continue to the next review.
At 3:00 the song goes into its climax; and the melody is full of angst and mood.
At 4:05 I'm hearing a hook that perfectly resolves this song. Nothing unexpected here, just a beautiful song. Thank you for the song

Bio

“Why am I ashamed of all those years that I have wasted, trying to make it on my own.” Yellow Light - “Breathing In”

Sometimes you just realize that it might be in your best interests to have a partner in crime: Laverne & Shirley, Thelma & Louise…. history is filled with famous duos.

Jenny Galt and Vicky Sjohall started out their music careers in similar fashions, the standard haul your acoustic down to the coffee shop routine. After toiling away separately in relative frustration while trying to write songs and get noticed as solo artists, they happened to end up at the same open mic night one fateful evening in their hometown of Vancouver. As
things worked out, Vicky ended up sharing the stage with Jenny and performing harmonies on several of her tracks without ever having met her before. The instant chemistry was obvious and in short order they were writing songs together.

Fast forward to a few years later and after an exceptional amount of work and writing, Yellow Light are poised to release their album “Speed Of Light”. The years in between have been a journey which is characterized most by their unwavering faith in the fact that no matter what happens, the two of them need to be writing music together. However, Vicky and Jenny aren’t the same person. Not even close.

Each brings to the table an individual approach to songwriting. Where Jenny chooses to start the writing process by unleashing her emotion on the key- or fret board and then writing lyrics, Vicky often employs her talents as wordsmith first before picking up her guitar. Together they blur the lines to build dynamic and heartfelt songs.

“We definitely help each other complete songs,” says Vicky.

And sentences.

“We’re both good at different things,” interposes Jenny, who picked out her first piece on the piano when she was only four-years-old. “Vicky focuses on detail – counter melodies, things to fill in all the corners. I’m more concerned with the bigger picture – chord progressions and the like. Vicky is the emotional one, where I am more…”

“The voice of reason,” offers Vicky, with a laugh. “We really are as close as two girls can get without being sisters.”

“Speed Of Light” was recorded in Vancouver during 2003/2004 and produced by Yellow Light with Jay Evjen (Todd Kerns) and Craig Northey (The Odds). During this time they’ve managed to keep together one of Vancouver’s longest running residencies on Wednesday nights at The Arts Club. They’ve performed for thousands of people over the past several years and are now anxious to release their album. “We’re both so happy with this album and I don’t know that it would have been possible without the other person’s involvement” says Vicky.
With the release of “Speed of Light” this spring, you can expect to see a lot of Yellow Light. They will continue to play in Vancouver and just like many famous duos before them, they’ll be hitting the road. Look for Yellow Light this summer as they embark on tour in support of “Speed of Light.”
