Jade Helliwell - The Moment


Jade Helliwell keeps her fine run of singles going with her most polished production to date in the shape of "The Moment". In fact it is so polished and so well delivered you could easily be mistaken for thinking this was being delivered freshly from Nashville.


Like all the best songs Jade has honed in on a universal feeling, that everyone will recognize but that no-one has yet put a name to, until now. It describes circumstances that lead to the "Will he / Will she". make that move that completely changes a relationship and asks if the move is not made at that time will it ever - was that "The Moment".


Jade lists a number of could've been moments "The sun had set and it was past 11 As you walked me home that warm July night", and "Dancing in the lights singing songs we don’t know Or the time you said that you’d take me home Cause you didn’t like me walking late at night alone". In lesser hands that might've been enough to hang a song off, but Jade seals the success of the song by taking it to another level, identifying that she's determined not to miss out "Next time I’ll jump in It might not be forever But I won’t be wondering Was that the moment?"


The sound as mentioned is very polished, essentially a piano ballad, but with rich strings, shimmering cymbals. pedal steel and with Jade delivering a vocal that seems to squeeze the maximum amount of words into the lines of the verses giving it a slightly jaunty feel while slowing her delivery for the big sumptuous chorus, the sort of big belting chorus that she excels at.
