See Your Shadow Songwriting is a musical creation entity currently based out of Phoenix, Arizona. Run by Michael Coleman, aka The Metropolitan Cowboy, See Your Shadow is a collaborative network of talented vocalists and musicians. Coleman, the artistic director of See Your Shadow Songwriting, writes and produces all the songs created and released by See Your Shadow Songwriting.
The project’s Single, “I Will Tell Jesus You Said Hello” reached #1 on the iTunes Country Songs chart in South Africa, while receiving national and international airplay and charting.
The follow-up track, “My Worth”, was also overseen by Coleman, who exclaimed: “At first, I was going to sit down and write some lyrics to the piece and then after listening to it over and over, I thought the piece just stood so strong on its own as an instrumental.”
If you love powerful, hard-hitting mid-tempo ballads, “I Will Tell Jesus You Said Hello” will be right up your alley. The emotion in the vocals on this track is breathtaking. The See Your Shadow project really know how to bring believable feelings to their music and they sing as if they mean every word. There is something so majestic about the voices and the music that make you feel like few other contemporary country artists can make you feel.
The song is perfect in its simplicity and the heartfelt honesty really hits you in the solar plexus. It’s a sad tale with an inspirational message at its core – a heartbreaking but gorgeous song that listeners should take their time with and cherish. “I Will Tell Jesus You Said Hello” plumbs the depths of emotion, while also tackling the topic of spiritualism and human vulnerability. It’s a fabulous track that would also be great for country radio.
Part of what makes See Your Shadow so enjoyable is that no matter how high the project seems to aim, it always strives to stay connected to its re-branded country roots. That grounding has served the project well all over their catalog.
Upbeat and instrumental, “My Worth” is a totally different track to the previous one, yet in all the dynamic bombast of crunchy guitars and banging drums, it never loses its subtle country twang.
“My Worth” gets your feet stomping with wicked electric riffs, as swirling guitars surround the swell and surge of the beat. It’s packed full of energy and groove. The core of Michael Coleman’s craft is the fearless way he creates: composing songs that are achingly personal but still resonate with everyone who hears them. In this case, regardless of whether they’re instrumental or not.
The result is beautifully polished pieces of work with moments of great depth and meaning. See Your Shadow songs shows a huge amount of thought put into the crafting of each project, both as a musical journey and lyrical story for the listener.
