David Haerle has been featured a number of times here on EP, with releases from his ‘Garden Of Edendale’ longplayer. The latest track is the magnificent ‘Everything I Ever Wanted’, a song with a different sound to the rest of those on ‘Edendale’.
Speaking about the track, Haerle said,
“This recording is special to me because it could only have happened with all the musicians (in this case five) being in the studio at the same time riffing off each other. There was minimal overdubbing.”
David Haerle is supported by a cast of ten hugely talented musicians on the album, and on this track by Carson Cohen on bass, Luanne Homzy on violin, Reade Pryor on drums and Alex Wand on guitar. Engineer Jose Salazar handled co-production, editing and mixing for the song.
The video for ‘Everything I Ever Wanted’ is shot in-studio, beginning with Haerle playing an acoustic guitar, and gradually joined by the other band members. At times the song is dark and moody, but it builds up slowly to an epic musical climax. Based on the chords of his track, ‘Finding Natalie’, the bass is often centred on and around E with the guitar chords changing over that, which gives the song a substantially different feel. When listening to the finished track, Haerle said he heard “the soundtrack to a life filled with joy, hope and adventure, along with its share of sorrow and loss.”
