Raindrop Single

Local artist time!

Zach Knell released his first single a few weeks ago, entitled "Raindrop." It is from his forthcoming debut album. Over a period of about a month, Zach recorded the track at Heftel Studios in Provo.

Lyrically, the song is poignant and sweet. It speaks of yearning to make a difference and never wanting someone to feel alone, suggesting that we all help one another out by loving each other. It also touches upon loving ourselves and that there is a feeling of freedom that can be found therein. Raindrops are a theme that is used metaphorically throughout.

The sound of the song starts out with, quite fittingly, a rainstorm. Piano, guitar, and drums then join into the mix, building layers, but never overpowering Zach's vocals. Speaking of Zach's vocals, they are soft and create a feeling that is quite soothing. The rain continues as the song fades to an end.

I really like this song. It makes me want to curl up with a loved one and drink hot cocoa as we watch the rain pour outside. And this kid has talent- I think he could go far.

Listen to it here.

What do you think?
