Finding Inspiration

from the Finding Inspiration album.

FINDING INSPIRATION is an apt title track for RAY MACARTNEY, this being his fourth single for release from his album of the same name. It’s a song that a lot of song writers will relate to, about the struggles that can occur when finding that elusive inspiration when writing a song.

Fine fiddle from PETE DENAHY & guitar from PAUL GIBBS along with acapella harmonies, mold this song together, finally finding the ultimate, a well-crafted composition.

“I’ve always loved the meaning within words & the expression that happens when you join lyric & melody. As I often do I set off for a writing retreat by the coast, in a room with guitar, pen and writing pad. Frustration was starting to get to me and three days went by & no inspiration forthcoming. It finally occurred to me, I’ll write a song about just that, finding the inspiration to write a song. I then found myself on a roll and another six songs from the album were written in the coming days. Did I find my inspiration?”....
