Caleb wrote "You're not alone during quarantine to let his friends know they were not alone and had a support network a click or a call away. The virtual world kicked in and Caleb found ways to keep everyone calm and hopeful. The song’s lyrics provided comfort and reassurance at a time people’s lives were in an unknown place. The song’s poignant message was universal to all the world…” It’s gonna be OK. Always remember, you’re not alone, your friends are here, you must be strong, you’re not alone.”
“You’re not alone” is a song with a universal reach across the globe, providing comfort and hope at a time when most people were living with unknowns and daily uneasiness. The song’s main message that we have each other is powerful and encouraging. The song creates a glimmer of hope woven throughout that let you feel things will be okay. It captures the power of human emotions in a beautiful light.
The song was produced by James Zaner, Zippah Studios, and performed by Caleb Cascio on vocals, acoustic guitar and mandolin, and Owen Korzec on electric guitar, drums, bass, keys/piano, and percussion. Owen was also the assistant producer and created the song’s arrangement.
While the melody holds its own as a charming sonic twinkle, it is the lyricism that highlights Cascio’s connection with modern-day audiences. Writing songs about relationships and life in general, Cascio uses his tracks to keep people calm and hopeful in an uncertain society. ‘Roller Coaster’ is about youthful romance – from meeting each other, through the honeymoon phase and beyond. Unlike many love songs that have a sense of despair as they look at the darker side of relationships, ‘Roller Coaster’ retains the positivity of romance.-The Other Side Reviews
