After collaborating on several projects during periods of lockdown, renowned solo artists Donna Marie and Patrick Jordan officially joined forces as super duo Dove Ties. Writing, recording, and producing together via the internet, the pair released two singles in 2021 and are now set for their first of 2022. Ghost Of You – a heartbreak ballad about regret, lost love, and loneliness, will see worldwide release on 25th February.
A bluesy, soulful guitar lick opens the song before the achingly emotive vocals of Patrick Jordan cut deep. This song features shared lead vocals with a powerful blend of guitars and keyboard – all masterfully arranged for maximum heartbreak. Rich harmonies provide background cries. The vocal performances really make this track. Both artists are talented writers, musicians and producers, and this track showcases that beautifully – but the emotion unleashed through the vocals in this song have caught me in the feels on every single listen. And I’ve listened quite a few times whilst writing this review. More blues than traditional country, Patrick and Donna are keen to share that they haven’t even met in person yet – but thanks to technology, have written and recorded not only this single but an entire album, due for release later in the year.
