Tell me about the concept? What’s the purpose of this song?
Even though I wrote “Sweet Love” for my guitar – my dearest kindred spirit, my soul-friend, this song is generally about unconditional love and support and can be referred to anyone or anything: a spouse, or best friend, a Higher Spirit.
Does this song have any musical influences?
This single was produced during Covid-19 pandemic when musical gigs had stopped. Local musician Jan Grman contacted me and offered to do something together to stay creative. I brought my lyrics to our session and together we turned them into a song. Jan definitely brought his own musical influences into the composition. It sounds very Sade, easy listening and soulful.
What inspired you to write this song? a life experience?
Life is like the weather: one day the sun shines, the next day it is dark and cold. Those were the rainy days of sadness and loneliness when I wrote this song.
When would be a good time to listen to it? What mood does it suit?
It is a good song to listen to after a long day – to relax, unwind, reflect and pause for a moment.
