Kristi Flagg’s second album “The other side,” which follows her first album “Brave New View,” is a similarly stunning renowned musical masterpiece providing a private, inherent, and vulnerable collection of breathtaking melodies. The songs take you on a musical trip that provides amazing insights into love and loss, meditation, and deeply probing the balance of life’s hard-earned lessons and, eventually, its profound joys.
“Find me” is a brilliant work of creativity and a dedication to her father, presented in a passionate and calm voice that demonstrates a depth of acoustic melody, a purity of symphony, and an ingenious astonishing impact of music composed from the heart. “In liberating my own being; may I benefit others,” she says.
The song begins quietly with acoustic vocals, bass keys, and steel guitar, leading to a peaceful interlude. This one, in particular, has a country vibe to it and offers us a sauntering grove that is well saturated by Flagg’s captivating vocals, which are deep and tasty. The background vocals create a lush and ecstatic atmosphere reminiscent of a symphony orchestra. The melodious and shimmering guitars complete the actual performance, which is nothing more than a great timbre.
“Find me” is dedicated to and inspired by her late father, Hank, who died at the age of 92.5 years of a “long life,” and her words resonate with her feelings with lines like “I’ll be on the other side, waiting, arms open wide- at your feet, I surrender it all- tumbling over myself,” influencing the incredible warmth in her voice and backed up by a soulful performance that flawlessly brings out her heartfelt and compelling delivery.
The video showcases nature’s best trail, producing an impression of an already gleaming sun, a spectacular sphere of blinding light that casts flowing yellow streaks and reflections on the inviting water that lies before it. The sky is clear, and her voice reflects the blue ocean of possibilities that she is composed of. Kristi is gently pulling the guitar strings to create a rhythmic flow with her sweet voice. We then get a wider perspective of a forest where the sun is beaming its monster rays onto the equally massive trees, and the appearance of the wonder dog (the film’s star) completes what is by far a superbly shot video that evokes emotions of serenity and affection. Loss, reminiscence, loneliness, and a longing for someone.
Kristi defines her music as being inspired by life’s hardships and learning from love, “always when we fall madly into it or tumble awkwardly out of it; reach for its ancient wisdom or find its lessons tucked down deep in a long-forgotten memory-making sense of the struggle and celebrating.” Enjoy her while she is still here because her work has the potential to impact and disrupt the whole music industry, as well as the ability to live an impact of honor, nobility, audacity, and integrity.
