Where the gold is dug (feat​.​Florent Simon)

by Jean Pascal Boffo

supported by


"Where the gold is dug" est le 3e titre issu de la collaboration entre le guitariste et compositeur Jean-Pascal Boffo et le singer-songwriter Florent Simon. Dans la lignée des deux premiers titres du duo, "The Ether" et "Colour Blind", cette nouvelle chanson offre à l'auditeur un écrin d'intimité où bercer ses émotions, et se laisser porter.
Car après une ouverture folk à l'épure poignante et chaleureuse, l'arrangement progresse vers un choeur enveloppant et un piano qui soutiennent le violoncelle d'une invitée de grande classe, Klara Egloff, qui a déjà oeuvré sur le premier album de Florent ("The birds are back", sorti à l'automne 2020).

"Where the gold is dug"is the third song born out of the collaboration between French guitarist Jean-Pascal Boffo and singer-songwriter Florent Simon. Following the first two songs' soothing and intimate atmosphere, this new song provides the audience with a welcoming space in which to lay their emotions and let themselves be moved.
After the introduction performed in a delicately warm manner, the arrangement gets wider and wider until it reaches its most moving point with backing vocals sustaining a piano and the recognizable sound of Klara Egloff's cello (who already performed on Florent's first studio album,
"The birds are back", published in 2020).


Fingers softly draw a line
Caresses on my bare skin
Behind the fortress of my mind
lay the questions you've been asking

Lingering, still, late Summer air
It feels like home again
I could stay here for years
For it's where all the gold is dug

I was late to realize
the reasons for my yearning
Wind the caroussel of time
But the hours all went missing

Lingering, still, late Summer air
it feels like love again
Let's stay here for years
for it's where all the gold is dug

(Florent Simon)
