There Is Only You (String Trio Arrangement) – World Cafe Live at the Queen.
There Is Only You is a romantic pop rock song with an electronic pop edge. This string trio arrangement performed at World Cafe Live at the Queen is a rare acoustic performance of this song by romantic pop rock duo RKVC. Originally a solo Rod Kim tune, Vince Cirino has performed this song with him as duo since it’s inception. There Is Only You is featured on “To Love and Be Loved” a solo record of Kim’s co-written with Cirino. This string trio arrangement features cellist Sheila Hershey, violinist Bonnie VonDuyke and bassist Cooke Harvey (of The Splashing Pearls).
The idea for a string trio arrangement of There Is Only You began with RKVC’s impromptu acoustic takeover of Extreme Pizza’s open mic night where Sheila Hershey was accompanying open mic host Jacopo DeNicola. Hershey complimented the acoustic version and expressed interest in playing cello with them should an acoustic performance ever happen again. Soon, violinist Bonnie VonDuyke was on board along with The Splashing Pearls’ bassist Cooke Harvey.
This performance was specially arranged for RKVC’s record release party at World Cafe Live at the Queen. Though not included on the respective release, There Is Only You has been a fan favorite for a long time and this string trio arrangement was a way of breathing new life into a road weary song. There Is Only You is typically performed with synths, drums and electric guitars and keyboards, but this string trio arrangement strips the song down to its bare essentials, hopefully revealing a strong song that stands on its own merit.
