Chicago Jazz/HipHop fusion act Deep Fayed is out with an interesting piece of art titled “Places We Don’t Go‘. The vibrant soundscape is enhanced by a myriad of vocalists, starting with singer Catherine Poulos who sets the tone of the track with her lush melodies. Emcee D2G comes through with two solid verses to tie everything together.
Quote from George of Deep Fayed: “I really like the idea that your past influences your future, but it’s your decisions in life that make you who you are… your past and present self are different, but the same. Places We Don’t Go conveys two perspectives based off the verses written by D2G. They’re also heard within the contrasting sections of the music. I wrote the choruses, sang by Catherine Poulos, from the perspective of a kid experiencing the pain of loneliness, while D2G’s verses are through the eyes of a young couple expressing their love, honesty, and understanding — they aren’t alone.”
