Heard this for the first time this morning and as with the (now famous) FedEx ‘Tortoise and the Hare‘ Ad THE MUSIC made me take notice.

So, from what I can see it is a background guitar track to the spoken narrative. But, WHAT guitar work? Paul Simon?

I checked, on YouTube, songs called “Home Sweet Home“. Don’t think the music is from any of them.

Yes, I checked. I cannot, as yet, locate the guitarist. But, this one might be easier thanĀ Tortoise and the Hare‘. One of YOU will know.

Just wanted to share and get your input.

Enjoy.

‘FedEx’ ‘Tortoise & The Hare’ TV Commercial — Is It Sung By ‘Jack Williams’ (Of South Carolina)?

I had an e-mail this morning from a reader of this blog opining that it maybe Jack Williams and that the ‘tortoise and the hare’ sounds like Jack Williams’ “Hand Me Down” (below).

I was NOT familiar with Jack Williams. I looked him up and listened to “Hand Me Down” on YouTube. Possible, BUT not 100% convinced.

YouTube of Jack Williams’ “Hand Me Down”.


Somebody else had suggested Paul Simon, but I am sure that that is a non-starter.

I think my first choice, British Johnny Flynn, is still a good bet.

IF you KNOW PLEASE do share. Thanks.

‘FedEx’ ‘Tortoise & The Hare’ TV Commercial — You HAVE To Listen To The Song. Mesmerizing.

by Anura Guruge



YouTube below.



I typically do my utmost to ignore TV ads. I either skip over them, change channels or read something until they are over.

This morning, as is my daily wont, I was drinking my first cup of coffee, lying in bed, with the TV onto MSNBC/CNN and reading news on my 10″ ASUS pad at the same.

THEN I heard this song. It sends tingles through me. I was like “what the heck was that?

It was familiar and alien at the same time. I rewound the DVR to watch what it was.

It was a FedEx ad. Hhhmmm.

The song was not familiar but the immaculate guitar work and singing were mesmerizing. I listened to it a few times. Brilliant.

Really liked it.

Google to find out who the artist was. I failed! I thought it might be the British Johnny Flynn who did the soundtrack for the ‘The Detectorists‘. There are similarities in the guitar picking. I checked. I don’t think it is him.

I e-mailed the Ad company. They have not responded. So, IF you know who it is, PLEASE let me know.

In the meantime LISTEN to the song. You will THANK ME.



The Jack Williams theory.
