Tranquility couldn’t be any nearer when listening to Corner Of My Mind by Rusty Reid. A soft country and folk song accompanied by acoustic guitars, drums, and cymbals beautifully layered behind Reid’s low and husky timbre.
While the music is absolutely scenic and nostalgic, the album cover is sure to take you down country lanes to Virginia or Denver. You see a man sitting with his back to verdant greenery on a porch– a sepia image cast over the image of a river. The overlaid image perfectly captures nostalgia and memories of a bygone time, whereas the scenic view of a river behind is an immaculate demonstration of the water carrying you to these memories as though it is inevitable. And how this is relevant to the music is what you will realize when you listen to this soothing masterpiece.
The lyrics themselves are simple yet profound as Rusty reflects on the memories of a past love that continue to linger in the corner of his mind. The beautiful acoustic guitar work and subtle drum beats complement the vocals perfectly, creating an atmosphere that is both intimate and emotional.
Rusty Reid is a master of his craft, and “Corner of My Mind” is a testament to his talent as a songwriter and performer. With its beautiful melody and heartfelt lyrics, this song is sure to resonate with anyone who has ever experienced heartbreak and the longing for a lost love.
