Liner Notes: 

Here is our collaboration. Kristi wrote her beautiful lyrics: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/38565
I composed music and we asked Susan whether she would be interested in singing our song. To our delight Susan agreed.
In our demos there are some alterations to Kristi's lyrics but we just posted the original lyrics.
Thank you both Kristi and Susan for your beautiful collaboration. It is very inspiring to collaborate with you both.
Nadia

Lyrics: 

REACH
©2019 Kristi McKeever (lyrics) and Nadia Cripps (music)
Featuring Susan Cantey on vocals

How high do you look
How far do you see
You have it within you
I have it in me

How steep is your step
How long is your road
You turn every corner
And haul your own load

Chorus:
So go ahead and reach
Reach out and above
Somewhere you’ll find
What it means to love
Reach over, reach in
Nothing’s ever too far
You make a difference
Wherever you are

When do you start
When do you end
The day’s just beginning
How far can you bend

When do you give
When do you take
Find the right balance
Then try to stay awake

Chorus:
So go ahead and reach
Reach out and above
Somewhere you’ll find
What it means to love
Reach over, reach in
Nothing’s ever too far
You make a difference
Wherever you are

Bridge:
Take chances, be original
Believe in little miracles
Leave nothing to chance
This is your dance

Repeat Chorus

Wow! Great job, ladies! The music is beautiful and those vocals!! Very nice lyrics, Kristi, that clearly inspired a lovely piano (always lovely, Nadia!) and Susan's voice always knocks me out. I think I'll listen to it twice! Wink

First, the talent on this collaboration is exciting me already. I'll start with the lyrics.

Looking at the lyrics...I had to read through to the chorus to really get a grip on this message. How far to reach to find love. the next section I like the last line then try to stay awake. The bridge really delivers the message clearly. Great job Kristi. I'm ready for the audio now...hold. Nice hall piano...vocals now...sounds good...lovely piano and singing....harmony vocals now...I like the mix with the piano on the right side...singing can clearly understand the lyrics...quite a bit of talent it takes to add vocals and melody to a piano arrangement. Well done Nadia for keeping the piano singable and Susan you are a superstar and delivered the melody...I really like it.

Great to see a 3 way collab that works so well. I knew all 3 of you were good but it doesn't mean it all comes together! But this certainly does with fairly minimum change.
