Kris Ivy / Spirit Of Life / Spirit Of Life

Great song!

I like this song a lot. It flows very nicely from phrase to phrase. The vocalist has a very smooth voice and is easy to listen to. All of the instrumentation is perfect in the way each one complements each other. The mixing and mastering is superb also. Not sure if this was done by the artist or someone else but hats off to whoever did the job right! Last but not least, the subject matter and lyrics are very positive and exudes a feel good attitude. This is the first song that I have given 5 stars to and rightly so.

Spirit of Life by Kris Ivy

Kris is an American singer and guitarist, based in Norway and active on the local gig and festival scene there. "Spirit of Life" is the title of this mid tempo alt country song, with lyrics slanted towards respect and compassion for the downtrodden and victimised of this world. Having said that, it's not preachy and walks that difficult line between heartfelt and anthemic. Beautiful playing and production and a good clean vocal approach makes this an authentic and inspiring release. Give it a listen!

Christian sound.

Great Christian feel... well produced and engineered... I believe the song would of popped more with a female lead vocal.. or a more contemporary male vocal sound.. other then that.. Great track all the way around.

Spirit of Life

Kris, What an unbelievable sound and song!!!!! I love the lyrics, great mix , well balanced and great background vocals and backing instruments, great instrument and guitar tone, organ sound was really nice, B3???? , if not a great keyboard patch as the Leslie spins up nicely..Keep writing music for the Lord as the time seems to be drawing near, either a massinve revival movement or tremendous persecution or both!!!

Really nice, smooth song. Enjoyed

Really enjoyed this song. Very pleasing to the ear. The arrangement of the instruments are placed nice in the mix, and are not overwhelming. They accent each other. The lyrics are easy to understand, and your vocals are spot on. Your vocal has a nice smooth feel, that flows well with the song. Well done. and well written song. I would definitely recommend your music.

Hopeful and uplifting

Kris Ivy's recording of "Spirit of Life" is a tribute to the refugees fleeing the Syrian Civil War, and their strong will to live. It begins with an artful intro of cymbal and cleanly played guitar, and then Kris comes in with his lead vocal, which you could swear was an American country star. (That's suprising, since Kris is from Norway.) In fact, I would classify this song more as country rock that rock, pop, or jazz per se. The overall sound is very nice, although the mix is a little bass-heavy. I had to turn my subwoofer down, in an effort to understand the lyrics, and ultimately could not quite catch some of them. The lead guitar solo is competent, not showy, and I like that. The backing vocals are effectively used. The lyrics I did understand were uplifting and hopeful. Overall, I definitely like this work, and would like to hear more from this artist.

Marvelous!

Hey Kris! Congrats on your song! It was the best song to the soldiers. I couldn't agree with you more! Very untouchable. Very good. Very passionate. Great song with a message. Keep up the good work!

Spirit of Life Kris Ivy

Review of Norse Man Kris Ivy's song Spirit of life, i was a little surprised to hear such an American song from A man from Norway. A pleasant little tune with a nice sentiment, it's really MOR pop, but that takes nothing away from the tune, very listenable with easy to hear and understand lyrics. the mix is good with vocals right up front of mix and most instrument can be heard even on my computer speakers, i am interested to hear more of his tunes and will be looking for more to review, All in all well worth a listen, good work

Inspired

Very good sound with a good emotion, like the back up vocals song should fit right into any devotional style service, very pridictable nothing new, good energy, composition very structured familiar and likable.

Spirit of Life

This could be a country standard. The writing is great with something to say. The performance is balanced and the production is fitting. The vocal and instrumental sound very American. Well done coming out of Norway.
