First, I want to congratulate David Murray for winning the first free music contest. He was the first to guess the song title and artist contained in the puzzle posted on Friday. Be on the lookout for the next free music contest in the coming weeks. So what was the final answer. My iPod track of the week happens to be “On My Way Home” from Soul’d Out Quartet. Found on the group’s latest recording, Blessed, “On My Way Home” is not the ordinary quartet number.
First off, the song is actually a trio song featuring pianist Michael Howard on the lead with Dusty Barrett and Matt Rankin rounding out the harmony vocals. Sung with a bluegrass track, it is not the typical (4) part quartet song. As I was giving this recording a first listen, this was the first song to get the repeat treatment. To be honest I hit repeat several times before moving on to the next song on the recording.
This song still finds a regular place in my iPod playlists. One of my favorite Soul’d Out Quartet songs to date. Give it a quick listen and let me know what you think. The song picks up on the second verse.
