Lisa Ann Wright - 'I Know You'
Review by Patrick Joseph & Staff
“I Know You” is a relaxing and moving piece of music. It’s quiet yet strong energy is inspirational and uplifting. Insistent ukulele strumming and minimalistic percussion keep the rhythm of the track driving forward while affording plenty of space for Wright’s vocals and lyrics to shine through…and shine they do. Wright is confident and deliberate in her vocal expressions, effortlessly communicating the song’s message.
Lyrically, “I Know You” is a statement of support and strength. “I know you are gonna make it through, ‘cause I know you will make sure I do, too!” Wright seems to just delicately place the lyrics where they need to be. “You can make it through the pain despite the problems that you see.” This song is living proof that the gentlest messages are often the ones that hit the hardest.
“I Know You” is a true songwriter’s song. A singular artistic vision gives this song wings. Wright utilizes musical elements her advantage by sticking with a spacious arrangement with only one impactful “breakdown bridge.”
Harmonized vocals bring the lyrics to life while rhythmic strumming and percussion keep the rhythm moving forward. This song establishes an emotional tone and uses lyrical development and honest delivery to create a pure work of art.
