Gordon Paul’s “Everything’s Okay” channels David Ford amid haunting piano beauty

Gordon Paul’s “Everything’s Okay,” the title track off his debut album, speaks truth to fear over a melody which will haunt you on repeat listens. A fan of dynamic range, Paul builds his song in the David Ford tradition, layering delicate strings over a soaring piano melody, giving room for the subtle grains of his voice to fill our headphones with the sounds of comfort and gently answered prayers. “Your love knows no darkness,” he sings as the strings rise, and though we’re no more clear than we were at the start that things truly are going to be alright, at least we have those magnificent surging notes to go back to in our uncertainty.

  1. This guy has a great voice. Sort of raspy at times. Beautiful complement to the instruments. Nice shout out, Kroessman. :)

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this track. It’s lovely. Lovely’s not a word I like to use often, but it seems right in this case. :)
