I Won't Let You Go


Länge: 03:54

Hochgeladen am: 09.07.2018 21:32 |

I wrote this for my daughter when she was young - when I would put her to bed at night she would always grab my arm and say, "I won't let you go"...which gave me the idea for the song! The bridge captures her actual reactions the first time she heard it after I recorded it for her (the "that's metal" and "bonk-bonk" is her messing around with the dynamic microphone...I thought it was cute and needed to included it!). Then I asked her to hum/sing the melody a little at the end.

Analyse HOFA

Songwriting & Arrangement:

You submitted a cute and lovely song for your daughter. The text is therefore not very deep or poetic, you could try to combine the message to your daughter with a more general content that other people can also refer to if you want to release your music to the public. ;)

Your song has a pleasant musical dynamic and the suspense captivates the listener. The harmonic content and the melody lines are also very suitable for this style.

Recording / Performance:

The drums in your song sound a little unrealistic. In many genres a "real" sound is desired - this is admittedly not that easy especially since you usually don't have the possibility to record a real drum set in your home studio. Here it is worth investing a little more time in the search for realistic sounds and program the drums meticulously in order to achieve a dynamic drum sound.

The vocal performance is very suitable for this song and lyrical topic. The intonation is not perfect but still quite good.


We noticed a very harsh sound on the vocals. You should try to tame the high end here with appropriate EQ-ing. ;)

The reverb on the vocass could be further optimized. It is already going in the right direction but still seems a bit "artificial" as it doesn't really connect to the other instruments in your mix. Try to find a reverberation that makes the sound appear more homogeneous and natural.

The following screenshot shows a picture of a spectral analyser where you see the frequency curves of your mix. The lower curve describes the average energy level, whereas the upper curve shows the corresponding peak hold per band:
