There was a lyric in a song released by David Nail, some ten years ago, that kept popping into my head while listening to Rob Bellamy’s new offering. The lyric from “The Sound of a Million Dreams” was “So I labor for hours ’cause I know the power of a song, when a song hits you right.” There truly is power in a song, when it hits just right.
“Save Us A Couple Slow Ones,” Bellamy’s moving new original is sure to hit just right, for any parent. This well-crafted piece of artistry showcases Rob’s ability to express his vuneralbility in such an honest way. It’s not manipulative, as some “songs from the heart” tend to be, in that they purposely aim to evoke emotions. This just feels real. And beautiful. And yeah, it hit me just right.
Rob’s songwriting is thoughtful and authentic, and gets better with every piece of work. He has a way of communicating that is immaginative and sincere. This former hockey player keeps it real. He doesn’t get caught up in too much imagery to cloud the message. It’s almost inconceivable that Rob didn’t even pick up a guitar until he was 23 years old. Life experiences make for the best stories, and clearly this singer/songwriter has some great stories to tell… and songs that hit just right.
