"If you feel something tugging at your heart strings, don't be alarmed..."

Ok here’s what I’d like you to do:

First read this quote by Lee Rogers, “I like the idea that music crosses oceans of time, that my songs and my voice will be here long after I’m gone, that someday they will belong to my son. It’s important that he knows who I am. He inspires me everyday. Maybe someday I’ll inspire him.

Now take a listen to his song “Easier”.  If you feel something tugging at your heart strings, don’t be alarmed…it just means you’re human.  With the help of producer Marco Canepa, a gorgeous texture is built around an acoustic guitar, upright bass, subtle strings, and understated piano…and of course Lee’s warm, soulful voice.  Tom Waits is mentioned as an influence and I hear that, but Bruce Cockburn also comes to mind.

Van Morisson may be the best reference though, for his similar phrasing and rare talent in creating timeless classics….not to mention they both were raised in Northern Ireland.  Lee’s entire album is amazing, but the song “Easier” resonates with me to a level where I’m moved to give it my first 5-Star review rating.

    I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was fantastic. I don’t know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 I suggest you add new articles related with “health solutions” maybe could be a good idea but don’t worry you have a fantastic blog my bro. Cheers!

    Hi David,

    I have a question about the Review plugin. I found your blog through your testimonial. When I searched for this particular post in search, it is not indexed with the review snippet in Google. All your other reviews are indexed with it. My question is, if I go back to my old posts and edit my reviews with this plugin, will Google index them with the update? You have my email, so please reply if possible.

    Thank you

      Yes Google will index and update with rich snippets, they have with my other posts as you stated. Problem with this particular article is that I changed the Permalink and set a redirect on the old one. Still waiting for Google to update on this one, but it may take some time.
