The Last Goodbye::William Playlie::Producer

Because sometimes just a piano and strings will do. Producer, William “WP” Playlie is the kind of talented and skilled professional a musician always feels lucky to have worked with. For someone like me; it is truly an honor! 🙂 🙂

Hold On::Mark Jackson::Producer

There are times in music collaboration when magic just happens. It’s nothing you’ve done or worked for but someone just comes along and sprinkles fairy dust on an offering and BAM! It becomes a a beautiful song that you did not anticipate. This is one of those times.

I uploaded some a-capella singing (lead vocals and backups) and Mark Jackson of Portugal came along and added rhodes, guitar fun, a spiffy guitar solo, and some energetic percussion to make it oh sooo sweet! And my plaid brother, Nigel, from Scotland added his mastering touch to the track.  Here’s the result–we hope you enjoy it! 🙂 🙂

{lyrics}

Take your time and finish what you started.
Like in life; rushing through half-hearted;
Only leads to more and more trouble.
This time around we gotta be careful.

So Hold On to me.

Don’t ever wanna face a day without you.
My dreams are always filled with us in view.
Make these moments count and let’s slow down.
And leave the cares and worries for others to doubt.

Remember when you’re scared and feeling low.
I’m the one who cares and would love to show
Each time you fall away, I’m here for you.
You’re never out of reach for me to come through.

Breakout::Billy LeCoq-Mauvais::Producer

It’s hard to believe it’s been over five months since we put this song together. Yet, I’m still surprised and delighted that Billy, a premier musician and engineer, found my audition for RX’s industrial music and decided to put some of his magical producing energy into it. I like to think of Billy as the Willy Wonka of music because he truly is “the man with the golden ticket.” His education, experience, skill and heart to make not just entertaining music, but “smart” tunes as well; makes him one of the premier producers to work with; and I was thrilled to be able to be part of this great production.

Here’s our rendition of this dystopian-themed tune started by the fabulous RX!

You’re just another number to them.
A shadowy figure to forget.
A bar code; generic; someone to push around.
It’s just another Monday to live.
A uniform to show no hers or his.
The masses two by two; they march putting one foot in front of the other.

Breakout; don’t let them see you broken. Take out all the pieces that no longer fit because you’re whole and put back everything they’ve stolen from you; you’ve got to refuse, They’ll never give in. You must make amends with yourself and Breakout of the mold they keep trying to push you back in. Breakout to win back yourself. Breakout.

Now That You’re Gone::featuring Tony Fleitas music and Kip Dalpe Singing and Guitar

This is my first original song live recorded on a horrible tablet but cleaned up and mastered by the master engineer himself, Nigel Robinson (Gemini) of Scotland.

Tony Fleitas (mingyakyak) created this beautiful music and melody. This version features Kip Dalpe (singing partner extraordinare) singing backups and playing a beautiful guitar.

This was only for practice but had to post this since it’s our very first live recorded *ORIGINAL* tune!! Special thanks to Tony, Kip and Nigel!! Hope you enjoy it as much as we had fun singing it!! 🙂 🙂

Just Promise Me (featuring music by Tony Fleitas)

Tony (Florida) approached me on the international music collaboration website I belong to (kompoz.com) about auditioning for a completely different song. While working on that song together, I listened to another one of his guitar tracks and immediately fell in love with it. The words seemed to write themselves as his magical guitar playing resonated in my head that day. He was gracious enough to allow me to sing and write words for it.

Raul (Florida) added the right touch of beat and George (South Carolina) came along with his ever-versatile but always fitting bass (that man can do everything!). 🙂 Nimara (Romania) added some light percussion and synth accompaniment while Nigel (Scotland) brought an uplifting strings, cello, and keys addition. Then, my dear friend, Stoman (Germany), who I ruthlessly call many different nicknames, but one thing is for sure; German engineering remains top notch—even with my less than perfect tracks to work with–mixed the song together making it into one cohesive music bouquet, as if we were all in the same studio room.

People connect to different songs; different genres; at different seasons in their lives. We hope you connect with this sweet song by Tony in whatever season you’re in. Thank you for listening! 🙂 ~ Kim

Promise Me and I’ll promise you.
When we say, “I do.” It’ll mean something true.
Promise Me, you’ll never depart.
Let’s try and avoid the silly talk and start loving each other with our hearts.

I swear today. I’m here to stay.
If you Promise Me, I’ll be here always.
I swear today, I’ll forever stay.
Just Promise Me. Promise Me.

Promise Me and I’ll promise you.
Let’s avoid all the fancy rhetoric.
Keeping it simple will be much better.

We’ll never have to settle for less.
If we always give each other our best.
Just Promise Me.
