This Flight Tonight - Never After Video/Single Review

29 Aug 2014 // A review by Kerry Monaghan

A beautifully simplistic song and video clip sums up this delicate gem by artist, Ralph Warren Engle. The video depicts the acoustic guitar playing Engle inside a home, intercut with segments of a happy, smiling woman, who often looks contemplative.

Wonderfully arranged, the song, Never After, is a soft melody, very simple and sweet. Ralph Warren Engle is the sole writer and vocalist of This Flight Tonight, and has involved a mix of international musicians in his new 2014 recordings.

 

About This Flight Tonight

The name "This Flight Tonight" conjures up images of the emotional departures and arrivals at airports. It's those moments of change and new beginnings. It's that spur of the moment decision to take that flight tonight, to escape and set for adventure.

The project begins and ends with one sole songwriter; Ralph Warren Engle. "I write songs as a form of therapy for my own loses and life changes, and I'm set on a musical journey with whoever is available at the time to help arrange and perform the songs." This Flight Tonight project has seen some great contributing talent come and go, just like life's arrivals and departures.

Influences are Radiohead, Coldplay, David Gray, Temper Trap, Pink Floyd and Jeff Buckley.
