Nice gesture @Dutchbeat to bring this clip to our attention.
And what a nice performance @Bill from November Sound !
The corners of my mouth went up while listening, without me noticing that.

As a former risk engineer, would you mind if I ask your son to take extra care with his left hand? The hand he uses along the edge?
Extra kudos for him for his use of his heel to alter the tone. Very clever insight into the nature of the instrument. And of his six pack.

I hope the song is an original. I like it very very much.
Kind regards, Gus



Thanks @Dutchbeat and @LePlongeur that truly means a lot. Yes this is an original song ... this could be considered our most "popular" song ( ha .. popular)  .... at our live performances people do love to sing along.

I put a transcription of what Melissa says in the video and lyrics below. ( It may be helpful for those who English is not the first language .... we talk kind if fast, sound kind of different and the lyrics move quickly. )






Melissa:
Bill is very deep when he writes his lyrics. He is a very smart and creative man. He writes incredible lyrics but he thinks about what is wrong or what is going on in the world, what needs to change .... and he puts it into a song. Which is awesome. I know Paul does that too. A lot of artists here do. But, after a while I was like, oh, these are really hard to sing .... they kind of wear on the heart. Can you write a happy song for me? And this is what I got....


The Happiest I’ll Ever Be
Intro:
Verse:
Losing all control when I think about
Seeing you today and I think about
Forgetting everything while I think about
Those three words you say

Thinking about tonight and I really love
Spontaneity and I really love
When you take my hand and I really love
The way you look at me

Chorus:
I'm here with you and you holding me
This is the happiest that I can ever be
I'm here with you and you holding me
This is the happiest that I can ever be
This is the happiest that I can ever be

Intro:

Verse:
Dancin’ to the beat and it makes me feel
Your hands about my waist and it makes me feel
(Love) like I’ve never known and I know I feel (it)
In a special place
 
Never felt this way and it is so real
(This) love intensity and it is so real
Thought that I can’t say but it is so real (the)
Way you set me free


Chorus:
I'm here with you and you holding me
This is the happiest that I can ever be
I'm here with you and you holding me
This is the happiest that I can ever be
This is the happiest that I can ever be

Bridge:
When the day to day gets bad
When my life seems only sad
What can there be to look forward to ………ooh …………ooh

Chorus:   
I'm here with you and you holding me
This is the happiest that I can ever be
I'm here with you and you holding me
This is the happiest that I can ever be
This is the happiest that I can ever be
 
Verse:
Never felt this way and it is so real
(This) love intensity and it is so real
Thought that I can’t say but it is so real (the)
Way you set me free

Lying here with you and there’s nothing else
In this world but us and there’s nothing else
I could ever do and there’s nothing else
Left to feel but love

Songwriter, Keyboards, Arranger, Producer & Engineer for November Sound

November Sound is based on the Mother, Father & Son musical trio of Melissa, Bill & Will. I'm the father so anything I post will have my wife singing and/or my son playing percussion.


Absolutely charming performance @Bill from November Sound nice lyrics, catchy piano hook, engaging vocals and the percussion is an equal partner...  great combo!

And thank you @Dutchbeat for sharing 😎

Oh i like that performance!
You do it so well and the percussion man is awesome!
I just think its a pitty  with this clip that the audience didn't offer that attention to you that you would deserve.


Thanks @1roomstudio  , @Jurgen  , @Mo !!!!  :)  We try!


So @Mo  …. @MichaelA @Vince  and I had this discussion earlier on another one of these videos where there were suggestions for different camera placement. So, basically, at actual November Sound gigs where people come out specifically to hear us perform I don't really have cameras and tripods everywhere. It might ...uhm … get in the way, interfere, spoil the good time …. I'd need to hire someone to record handheld I guess.

These videos come from an original and acoustic open mic event that Melissa and I host. It is a service to other musicians because we know how difficult it is to get a place to perform around here … especially when one does original music or other music a little off the beaten path. It is also difficult to get a good video so for these events I set up multiple cameras and audio recording equipment.

If few people come the sound and video come out great.

If a lot of people come (like here party of 40 for birthday party) the owners of the vineyard are happy.  :)

All this to say these people aren't literally here for us. They are here for partying and there are multiple musical acts some pro, some amateur and some in between throughout the day.
 


I've never had the privilege to experience the trials and tribulations of a working band @Bill from November Sound . I do like watching videos and I wonder why some people and groups pop up all the time in "heavy rotation" on YouTube. Maybe they have to pay.  I  just wanted to say that I do enjoy your videos and it gives me something to watch while I listen.

Vince
 


Thanks @Vince ... I know you don't commment on videos all that much but it is great to know you're watching and putting the thumbs up! It really means a lot to Melissa and I!
Have you finished your move?
