Singled Out: Scarlet Haze's Reach Down Feat. Bumblefoot from Guns N' Roses
Sex. That word alone catches people's attention. For some, it makes their skin crawl. For others, it makes them blush, or in the best case, gets them instantly intrigued. What a perfect topic to write and sing about, right? In all the above scenarios, the topic of sex sparks an emotion. In "Reach Down" I am talking about safe sex, fantasy, and my imagination. Males and females alike will connect with this song even if they are too embarrassed to otherwise open up about this topic with their friends!
The tempo and rhythm of the lyrics to this song are fantastically exhausting and it gets your heart pumping by the end! My guest guitarist, Ron Thal of Guns N' Roses, shapes this song with a sort of call and response with my voice and of course, his solo takes the listener to a whole different kind of exciting climax. Ron has a very special touch that musically completes this song in so many ways.
All in all, I love the way this song is intended to take you on a sexual journey, and hopefully makes you feel that 'flying solo' some days or nights is not a crime. It can also be extremely safe, fun, exciting, and empowering! If I've learned anything about being an artist, it's that the subject matter of a song can take it to a whole new level. Add some rockin' melodies and a ripping guitar solo, and you have yourself a damn cool tune to put out there.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
