Fade To Blue

Initial sketch of title track “Fade To Blue”… final recording is just as ambient recorded with 3 guitars (rhythm, resonator slide, and electric) and e-bow on grand piano.

Yellow colors meet the blue
purple shade across the land
the way you smile, the way you smell
the scent you leave on my pillow

and though the sun goes down
something beautiful remains
and as the stars shine through
we’ll all fade to blue

the tide recedes but leaves behind
a memory deep inside my mind
the way you laugh, the way you cry
the subtle spark in your eye

and though the sun goes down
something beautiful remains
and as the stars shine through
we’ll all fade to blue

Dance On My Grave

Intial sketch (pre-band, pre-recording) of song “Dance On My Grave”. This song is written from the point of view of my mother (who passed away when I was in college) letting me know not to be sad, just celebrate the times we spent together. The recording with the full band is amazing. Can’t wait to share it with you. Has a very Tom Waits, True Blood vibe to it.

Next steps for the album: heading back into our home base studio in brooklyn to finish recording vocals, edit the tracks, and work with our string players. They are both amazing and have played with a number of incredible artists including coldplay, ray lamontagne, jon bon jovi, sheryl crow, the who, sinead o’connor, pearl jam, evanescence, beyonce and corrine bailey ray to name a few :)
