When you feel the weight of the world and you just want to pause time and let the emotions whip out, Kevin Walsh comes in with Not a Dry Eye in the House. The track is a beautiful and gut-wrenching rendition of pain. With Kevin’s theatre background, he has created a pop-operatic single that is ready to take center stage. Kevin embellishes the track with so much cinematic value that it really adds a sense of drama to his descriptive lyrics.
This number begins with a slow-burn piano section that propels Kevin’s beautiful voice. As he sings, you know that he means every word which is only elevated by the backing voices. By the time the track crescendos, you feel the spot light zero in on Kevin and with no one else around and it feels like a intimate rendition just for you. Everything about the song is spot on, the production, the lyrics, the instrumentals and the vocals. It is unlike any song in the Indie music scene right now. I bet that if we take all of Kevin’s songs, he’ll be able to pull together a musical right away.
The quality of the description is very reminiscent of Johnathan Larson. The track would resonate beautifully in the second act of Rent when Angel dies. I bet that if we take all of Kevin’s songs (even the unreleased ones), he’ll be able to pull together a musical right away. This is only one of two songs by Kevin Walsh that is on Spotify. So click on the links above and urge him to write and produce more such wonderful music. He deserves to be celebrated for his wonderful eye for detail.
