Dipping into the rich tenors released in her latest single, “Every Tear is a Prayer,” Renee Stahl collaborates with friend and mastermind producer Rich Jacques to bring utter depth to the strikingly raw emotion shed. Beautiful reflections simmer in this composition in both a lyrical and instrumental manner.
The components gracefully immerse your mind as this slow-tempo ballad maneuvers around the use of special ratios as space heard acts as an instrument to convey the messaging. The ethereal ambiance that glistens on a bed of chiming piano, shimmering electronica, and gentle pulsation has you able to fixate on each element as they shine individually and work together as a whole to create the stroke of genius that is, “Every Tear is a Prayer.”
Renee Stahl’s vocalization sits on a shimmering cloud of mystical dreamscape at their finest moment. You are encouraged to fall into her inviting embrace as she stimulates your mind in the thought-provoking reflections she releases.
“Every Tear is a Prayer” combines signature comfort found in the Alternative Indie-Pop genre, but Renee Stahl reminds listeners that this offering stems from a painful and personal place. Having cared for her father in her own home for the final three months of his life, the song captures both the heart-wrenching, intense emotion endured, as well as the celebration of life and love that comes from such an intimate and challenging situation.
