Impolight Mr. Rall just keeps knocking things outta the park. WAY out...
Everything produced by Nocturne Blue is warm, effervescent, and sexy AF.
His range is rad.
His guest vocalists are nonpareil.
The music is perfect for cathedrals.
Or space.
Or cathedrals in space... Favorite track: Let's Go Out Tonight (The Blue Nile cover).

Sal Pichireddu Dutch Rall never ceases to surprise me. He turns these cover tracks into real "Nocturne Blue" songs, still their original character remains intact. There's a lot of love and respect in these executions. I love every single bit of it. Favorite track: Love to be Loved (Peter Gabriel cover).

A collection of covers and quick demos of songs by a few artists I admire. Recorded just for fun and leaving in imperfections of first takes whenever possible.

"Dutch Rall's rich voice bursts into a Jeff Buckley falsetto while his low register David Bowie crooning resurrects shivers of over-stimulation..." - Synthesis

"Like a great film actor, Kaitlyn has the ability to pull the listener into the lyric and deeper into the thought behind the lyric."

Track Name: Love to be Loved (Peter Gabriel cover)
So, you know how people are
When it's all gone much too far
The way their minds are made
Still, there's something you should know
That I could not let show
That fear of letting go

And in this moment, I need to be needed
With this darkness all around me, I like to be liked
In this emptiness and fear, I want to be wanted
'Cause I love to be loved
I love to be loved [x2]
Yes, I love to be loved

I cry the way that babies cry
The way they can't deny
The way they feel
Words, they climb all over you
'Til they uncover you
From where you hide

And in this moment, I need to be needed
When my self-esteem is sinking, I like to be liked
In this emptiness and fear,
I want to be wanted
'Cause I love to be loved
I love to be loved [x2]
Oh I love to be loved

This old familiar craving
I've been here before, this way of behaving
Don't know who the hell I'm saving anymore
Let it pass let it go let it leave
From the deepest place I grieve
This time I believe

And I let go
I can let go of it
Though it takes all the strength in me
And all the world can see
I'm losing such a central part of me
I can let go of it
You know I mean it
You know that I mean it
I recognize how much I've lost
But I cannot face the cost
'Cause I love to be loved

Yes I love to be loved
I love to be loved
Track Name: Let's Go Out Tonight (The Blue Nile cover)
Where the cars go by
All the day and night
Why don't you say
What's so wrong tonight?

Pray for me
Praying for the light
Baby, baby
Let's go out tonight
