FRESH: ‘Feels Good To Be Alive/Two Hearts’ – Ewan Patrick

Ewan Patrick just “Feels Good To Be Alive”

Rock-Pop, Folk-Pop

Scottish singer and songwriter Ewan Patrick follows up his 2020 double A side debut with another two track release for 2021, “Feels Good To Be Alive” and “Two Hearts”.

Both songs were written, recorded, mixed and mastered by Ewan himself, as he prefers a DIY hands on approach and carry two very positive and uplifting messages.

“Feels Good To Be Alive” bursts with indie-pop energy as Ewan insists that we all should feel good to be alive, there is so much yet to live for. The choruses really come alive and make you just want to smile and punch the sky with glee while “Two Hearts” is more of an acoustic number that works well both on a warm Summer or a cold winter night.

“Feels Good To Be Alive” is a narrative song, starting with the protagonist in quiet introspection. The song then bursts open with a sense of optimism and hope for the future. “Two Hearts” was concieved while Ewan was writing his wedding speech, not for a minute trying to contrive a love song for his future wife only to find it just happened. Ewan tells us: “I did everything you can hear on these recordings except for the Cello part on ‘Two Hearts’ which was composed and performed by my good friend Rebecca Rowe”.

Now with four songs to his name – “Retrospect” and “Hurricane” already established – Ewan is working on his first album, which he hopes will be out later this year.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
