tâches & Moira mack - Don't walk ahead
RELEASe date: 21 APRIL 2020
I present to you; Don't Walk Ahead.
For as long as I’ve been making music I’ve yearned to create something that made me feel like I feel when I listened to my favourite gospel tracks. I’ve waffled on about it for years to anyone who could bear to listen to me repeat myself. Coming primarily from a background of ‘programmed’ computer music, I just didn’t know how to go about creating something that had the soul and spirit that I was searching for. That was until I met the very special Moira Mack last year.
Shortly after we sat down in a session, we bonded over our love for soul and gospel and sought to write something that carried both the spiritual weight and lightness of gospel. She had read that morning a beautiful quote by the late Albert Camus; “Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead. Walk beside me… just be my friend” and very quickly managed to craft the basis of this beautiful song from his words. Over the following year, with the help of a few very talented friends, this song came into its final existence.
I am so proud to have been a part of its creation - in all its soft and naked glory. May this beautiful little song bless you always with strength in times of difficulty and may you never walk alone.
