For Sure::Producer::Walter Paul Owen

What genre is this? Well, it’s got a little bit of everything: pop, rock, and even a little country or country alternative mixed in with some lounge feeling. The Producer, Walt, from Chicago, IL is one of those rough-n-tumble sweetheart of a guys who plays a mean guitar and makes dream productions. I’ve only had the opportunity to work with him a small bit but I hope to do more in the future.

George came and filled out the bottom end of this track with a rhythmic bass and jazzy synths while the Texas-based violinist added a wonderful fiddle part from Ben. We hope you enjoy this lounge pop song with country lyrics, flavor, and hint!

Walk on by, don’t shed a tear for me.
I won’t be here, when you get back home.
You made me believe, I was yours, For Sure.
The kind of love that would last through the years.
I don’t want this pain no more.
I can finally take a hint you’re just bored.
No, I don’t want this pain no more.
Take everything you want, just leave this time, For Sure.

Forgive me if I don’t seem to care anymore.
You make this life hard to bear when you act this way.
I followed you around like you were all there was, For Sure.
But now I’ve wised up and I’m ready to be on my own.

Sweet Lullaby::Producer::Nicola Offidani

A sweet, easy-going yet powerful lullaby containing many contrasts both in musical composition and lyrical form. Special thank you to Andy (AndrewB) who gave such depth and refinement to this piece, And George (GeorgeSC) who laid a heart-warming bass line. And then Mike (Slackjaw1) came along and acted as mixing//mastering conductor of our mini-orchestra. We hope you enjoy this dramatic interpretation of a lullaby.

Sweet Lullabye
A soft Lullaby
In the quiet and still of the night
For those moments that are sweet,
When the needs arise.
Sleep, sweet, Lullaby.

Then take me as I am.
A heart like a lion and the touch like a lamb.
Make me a promise I can find.
When the evening fades too quickly
And the moon tries to hide. Sleep, sweet, Lullaby.

Come find me as I am.
The fierce of a soldier with a soft gentle hand.
Take me away from this cruel life.
And sing me the songs that break through the night.
Sing me this, Sweet Lullaby.

THAW Out::Tony Cas::Producer

Just in time for Spring, this delightful song, Tony from New York, produced, is a fun, toe-tapping, finger-snapping tune about taking time to truly thaw in life; not just from winter’s cold but also life’s busy schedules, too. This song developed very quickly with the electrifying bass from George; the always life beat percussion from Raul; and the sweet sounds of a tight-knit orchestra addition each provided by Gabro and Jack. We hope you will enjoy this with your favorite beverage; the windows rolled down; and the hope of Spring just around the corner.

Once In A Blue Moon::Ray DeMeriden::Producer

Sometimes, all you need is a bit of Magic. “Magic” is what I have nicknamed Ray because he tends to bring a bit of instrumental magic to every project he is on with his sweet keys additions and mixing and mastering skills. Add in some very edgy texture by the master guitarists himself, Nicola Offidani, and the creative guitar fills by Robert Luisyfer, and you have a very magical instrumental piece. This instrumental is among one of my favorites I have worked on. Ethereal (esque) vocals performed by yours truly. 🙂 I hope you enjoy it!

Silent Night; Quiet Night (adapt. Silent Night: Joseph Mohr and Rock-A-bye Baby: Kate Kenyon alt. lyrics: Kim Noble)

In the soft still of the evening
Unlike any other we’ve known
Comes a different sort of story
Love’s pure light finally shown.
Making right what once was vain
Setting flight to sin’s cruel reign
Silent Night Quiet night
All is calm;
All is bright
Young virgin mother and child
Go to sleep go to sleep
Tender and mild
Sleep in peace; sleep in heavenly peace
Son of God; love’s holy light
Shining bright Making it right
Born that night
Silent night
Rock a bye in the tree tops
When the wind blows that cradle will rock
Shepherds shake at the sight
Angels light up the midnight sky
Singing songs of quiet nights
Now that sin is put to flight

Well, it seems I seek out every possible Italian producer but there really aren’t as many around as I seem to bother. 🙂 Enrico is a highly skilled, classically trained (ABRSM grade 8) producer and musician who has allowed me to sing this wonderful tune that my (rock star) friend, Staffan found for me. Adding in Sue’s wonderfully delightful lyrics and a band of talented musicians, and you have a lovely, fun tune that was joy to sing! Can you guess what the song is about? Answer found at the very bottom. 🙂

{Lyrics}

Can’t help feeling blue, walking
down the avenue.
One minute you were my friend.
The next you just disappeared.
I wish someone had made sure
that manhole cover was secured.
No way you could survive,
make it out alive.

An accident meant to happen.
There was no way to avoid
a trap that was meant
for an old friend who was about to
turn state’s evidence on me.
I practiced shouting in surprise,
shedding fake tears for all to see.
If I play this right
everyone will think it’s only a
tragic catastrophe.

I’d tried one time before now
but somehow the brakes still worked.
You had been going up a hill
and the brakes just died and jerked.
Seems you had some luck with you
but this time it has run out.
I made sure the tunnel was dark and deep so,
now I have no doubt.

Producer and trusted friend, Ken Ferretti, produced this light pop/easy listening song in a little less than 24 hours. It’s one of my favorite songs to have the privilege of working on for him. I hope you enjoy it, too.

{Lyrics}

Sometimes this life’s complex and strange.
We get caught up in burdens, trials and difficult strains.
We tend to bow.
As pressures they slowly mount.
And we feel the constant squeeze of each day.

But then it happens.
Love comes
Appears out from nowhere

Suddenly,
Nothing matters but them.
Everything turns clear and easy.

Then life is free, simple, and smooth
Though nothing’s changed; love makes it all understood.
Once we really start seeing:
This simple life

But then it happens.
Love comes
Appears out from nowhere

Suddenly,
Nothing matters
Everything turns clear

Once we start really seeing:
This Simple Life
