Matthew Ryan Jacobs – Sun Goes Down

“The beautiful, melodic intro, accompanied by an acoustic guitar and vocals -matthew ryan jacobs-. Further, as if an emotional whirlwind surrounds you from all sides by a smooth rhythm and the atmosphere of the americana genre is pounced on you with a huge flurry of warm wind!” (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Прекрасное, мелодичное интро в сопровождении акустической гитары и вокала -Matthew Ryan Jacobs-. Далее, словно эмоциональный вихрь окружает вас со всех сторон плавный ритм и атмосфера жанра Americana набрасывается на вас огромным шквалом тёплого ветра!”

Sun Goes Down actually had a few different versions, same lyrics and arrangement, but several different rhythms and playing styles. One was more country, one leaned more towards blues, and the final version. In the end I think I made the right choice, I love Sam Cooke, and Otis Redding, and there might be touch of that vibe. Not that I could ever get anywhere near them.

Lyrically it’s kind of a story about where I was heading or loosely based on people I know or have known. It’s a little bit about addiction, and not wanting to let go of your youth; when drinking and partying just slowly turns into your life; and people and things start passing you by. You feel like you’re “living” but, you’re stuck in one place.
