Magic on the Water # 12 from My Old Soul

Here’s a song for you lucky folks that are going out on a lake this weekend.  “Magic on the Water” is a song trying to convey the feeling of being out on the water in the evening taking it all in.  The water can be very meditative.  Something unfortunately, I don’t get to experience that often.

Oh well, at least I’ve got a song about it.  Thanks for listening!

 

Drinking Gasoline

2nd song from Getaway Plans remix featuring the great Jason Fuller on piano.  This is by far my most popular song in Morganton, my home town, because it is about a true story of what we saw one night at the 3 Way Supply up at Lake James.  It’s a funny song without a chorus, just a good old americana instrumental breakdown.  Thanks for listening!

Gasoline

Today seems like a good day to finally post this song.  It’s for those who like to have a gasoline cocktail every now and then while enjoying the beauty of Lake James, NC.

Featuring the incredible Jason Fuller on piano.  This song was co-written with Jeramy Lamanno.

July 8th “Magic on the Water”

Another tough day in the heat.   I wish it was winter time already (after having a horrible winter).  Anyway, we at least got to drive around Lake James on our new recycling route today.  That was nice.   That’s probably where this song came from.   I sat down when I got home tonight and wrote three different things.  This was the first one that made it to the tape.   Thanks for listening!

July 7th “Love You”

What a brutal day on the old recycling truck.   I made the mistake of not bringing water (opting for Hardee’s lemonade/tea mixture which was only desirable for the first 32 oz.’s).   Needless to say, I was not in optimal condition.   However, we got ‘r done, as we always do.    We start new territory tomorrow, Lake James awaits.   It will be sweet looking at some nice lake scenery while sorting plastic bottles and soup cans.   I’m not averse to jumping in at some point during the route either.   That was my trademark when I was a pool maintenance guy, I always had to jump in to test the product.

On a totally different note, “Love You” is a sweet love song touting the wonders of openness and frankness, two things that every relationship needs an injection of.

Thanks for listening!!
