Long Island-born artist Doug Cash is an individual of many talents; writing, arranging, producing, and performing his own music – he is a vocalist, a guitarist, and a keyboardist as well. This comprehensive skill set has served him well on his most recent release. You Wept For Yourself is a powerful single that serves as a deep introduction to Cash’s sound and style.
You Wept For Yourself is guitar-focused and vocal forward. Cash’s voice is rich and nuanced, balanced nicely against a delicate, dark acoustic guitar. The production is simple, highlighting these two instruments alone, which allows Cash’s lyric writing to become a focal point of the track. It’s well deserved – the lyrics are poetic and thoughtful, adding a deeper layer to the track’s evocative mystique:
“What I know now
Could have served me then
The tears drip from my pen
You wept for yourself“
Deft use of minimalistic production, a strong songwriting skillset, and a comprehensive set of performance skills to reinforce it all – there’s so much to like about this recent single from Doug Cash.
