Artist: Ran Birkins Album: “Remember Romance” CD Review:
Ran Birkins has definitely found his niche. His CD “Remember Romance” is a collection of original songs for weddings.
The songs take us from courtship, to the ceremony and the reception and express different phases of the process along the way. There’s also an intriguing offer to have Ran write a song individualized for your wedding, either by changing some lyrics in one of his current compositions, or having him compose one specifically for you. His lyrics are, well, romantic of course – and straightforward almost like love letters themselves.
The arrangements are keyboard based, with gentle additional instrumentation, and a most definite ‘slow dance with someone you love’ vibe. Ran has a very smooth velvety voice perfectly suited to the sentiment in these songs.
There is a bonus patriotic song “One Nation Under God” sung nicely by a guest singer Jeannine Greenlee Floores, who also sings with him on the duet “I’ll Wait For You”
