Can a Live Music Experience be captured online?

It’s a question we never thought we would have to answer.

If you asked me 2 years ago if I thought Live venues would close and concerts would be no longer experienced in person, I would have said no way. Still, here we are, with venue doors closed, concert promotion companies out of business, and the world still in lockdown for the 3rd time.

The pandemic has changed the music world by closing music venues. This has left artists and music fans longing for those fun times where the music becomes that connector between musician and listener in a live setting. Open mics and live performance venues will come back one day because we all love them, but until they do, Alan Garmonsway released a single that brings the experience back to our memories.

‘Getting Over You’ started from an idea I had to create a ‘live concert’ sound in the studio.

We’re all missing live gigs, whether being on stage or part of the audience, and that’s not likely to change much in the near future given the worsening pandemic, so I thought it would be important and nice to bring that live flavor to a new song release.

Imagine it’s the middle of the set, virtually all the performers have left the stage, and there’s just one band member there with a guitar, the audience, a song, and its message. There’s no hiding place, and it’s the emotion and tension of the performance that connects with the crowd.

‘Getting Over You’ conveys that feeling and message, and it’s my contribution to keeping the spirit of live music with us during these lockdowns and restrictions — and a timely reminder that live concerts will be really appreciated when they return. In the meantime, a thank you to all those artists who have set up Livestream gigs and open mics thus far, which have been appreciated by many all over the globe!
