Tennerz: Lou Gorbea feat Dawn Williams – In My Head (David Harness Vocal Mix)
Just like an actor, what makes a singer standing apart is his/her ability to embrace countless moods and make it like his/hers. Meanwhile, what makes a producer reachin’ the same status is his/her ability to come up together as one with the artist(s).
A quick listen to ‘In My Head’ suffices to realize as to how we have everything right in place. From the lady’s sultry interpretation. To both the production of this song and its remixing work courtesy of David Harness. The latter perfectly fitting with the theme of the song. In other words, the release that comes to follow a bittersweet affair and allows each of us to get to the next step.
‘In My Head’ and definitely in our hearts too…
