This is a sad break up song I did a few years back but never put on an album. It was on the sparsely release ep ‘…sneak preview’ but it got formatted out of the next album because it was acoustic. It was one of the first songs I recorded when I moved to Asheville. Thanks for listening!
I figured I post a sunny day song today. Maybe that will make the ice melt. I’m in sales and the jobs I’ve sold can’t get done when the trucks are sitting still. This one comes from my ‘Risky Biscuits’ album and features great flugelhorn by Mike Elam. It also had a memorable backing vocal session with Mike, Dwayne Wallace, Ben Nunn, Coda Baerfider and myself gathered around my old studio in Athens. Wait around for the instrumental interlude about 2 minutes in. Thanks for listening!
I heard a popular quote the other day that basically said ‘get your heart-broken at 15 and you’ll have something to write songs about the rest of your life’. A good break up song is always compelling for some reason. I guess it’s the same thing as watching sad movies. Well prepare to be sad, that’s where this one is coming from. No reflection of myself personally, I’m as happy as I’ve been in quite a while. Thanks for listening!
It’s Sunday, so I’ll post a love song today. I did this music a long time ago and liked it so much I really wanted to put some effort into making the words good. So, I put it off until I felt like it; which turned out to be about eight months later. I’m continuing on my endearing love angle in the wake of my anniversary a few weeks ago. I used to write songs like this all the time before my tendency to make it funky (which happened in college after hearing Dr. Dre and Snoop). Thanks for listening!!
Today is my four year wedding anniversary to my lovely wife Adair. It’s hard to believe we tied the knot in Vegas so long ago. A lot has changed since then and I’m still excited about our future whatever it may be.
I’ve written tons of songs about our relationship as you can imagine but I figured for this blog, I had to do another one for today’s special occasion. Thanks for listening!
I guess I’m following up my WASPy song from yesterday with another pretty WASPy adult contemporary song for today. Scratch that, this song kind of sounds like a kids song.
Thanks for listening!
I had a good friend who had a terrible loss this week. It was very heart wrenching and I’ve thought about him a lot. It made me re-examine the love I give and receive in life. I do a decent job (especially to the animals) but I know I can always do better. We don’t think about that enough as human beings.
That’s what inspired “No Limit on Love”. The chorus is one of my favorites so far “There is no limit on love, ask for as much as you want, you deserve it”.
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!!
The tire exploded on the recycling truck yesterday afternoon, so it’s been an interesting week. We still managed to get to 220 houses in Hildebran today and pull in about 6000 pounds of stuff. The perfect background for me to come home and write an ambient love song right? This song is more of a mood piece than a normal vocal song. It’s meant to capture that feeling when you first fall in love.
A lovely Sunday in the studio with lots of great sports to watch. I love to have four different things going at once while I work. I will literally be watching basketball on one TV, golf on another TV, be recording on pro tools, listening to iTunes, surfing the internet, writing a song on guitar and a song on keyboard and writing lyrics, while designing websites. For some reason I work a lot better when my work involves eight things at once.
Kind of like how I listen to a book on CD on my iPhone everyday while listening to music at the same time.
