If I Don't Lie Down

Today, Bad Wolf Records is pleased to welcome the talented and renowned artist, musician, and composer Ben Drysdale, hailing from Canberra, Australia. He has graced us all with his solo debut release titled 'If I Don't Lie Down,' officially launched on December 15, 2023. Ben has left us all amazed with this incredible masterpiece he has brought to light for our auditory delight. His unique style, which blends elements from folk and acoustic rock, in combination with the diverse range of musical and lyrical resources used in this song, reflects his inexhaustible creativity and ability to compose true musical gems that resonate with the listener on deeper levels. It is almost like this song was written for every one of us.

The main theme behind 'If I Don't Lie Down' invites us on a profound journey of reflection about our own inner strength and commitment not to surrender to the difficulties that life presents us. Through his captivating literary composition method, which makes the perfect balance between the use of metaphors and tangible elements, results in an interesting kind of conversation with ourselves; it acts as a true wake-up call that makes us question our actions and their consequences. What would happen if we chose this path? What would happen if we took the other? This aspect is particularly relevant for those of us who not only enjoy music but also compose it because the main inspiration for this piece was originated in the midst of an environment filled with other artists, prompting Ben to reconsider aspects of his life and decide to pursue his artistic dream.

'If I Don't Lie Down' is that advice you always wanted to receive from your close friend, a brother, or that conversation you always wanted to have with your father but never occurred. It invites us to stay grounded and never yield to our most passionate aspirations.

Sunchild

"You are born, you grow up, and you die, they say..." but nobody tells you that death, as such, is not always earthly; sometimes it's spiritual, and it occurs more than once in the course of our lives, and after that comes the 'Rebirth.'

"Sunchild" by Jakob The Liar is precisely characterized as a story in which we are a part. With an impressive blend of musical and lyrical prowess, this talented musician manages to create an intimate connection with the listener, where each word resonates within like a declaration of inner strength. Through his harmonious melodies, he invites us to rise and find hope when it seems like everything around us has crumbled.
