Finished a song yesterday with Brandon James. It turned out pretty solid. Think John Mayer meets Nora Jones with a little Jason Mraz sprinkled in with a little Maroon 5 as well. That’s the vibe that came out. I’ve sent it off to the LOC as already a friend who heard the rough demo wants to push it to a manager that will plug the song for placement. He feels it has hit potential. Which is odd, cause I think the song is really solid, but it doesn’t strike me as a “hit” in the sense of the normal pop song. It’s rather tongue in cheek and a bit on the down side. Very vibey and listenable non-the-less.
I’ve got to finish up yet another track I’m doing to license for sports stuff. Then I’ve got another co-writer that I write with quite a bit coming today. Starting yet another song for film and TV type stuff. So it’s another full day of music.
In other cool news I got my song “All The Things” is now at a radio station in Rochester New York, I think it’s 105 MyDrive FM. It would be awesome if you’d take a moment to go give props on the song to help it get more airplay.
I need to get moving as I also have to hit the bank, take in my intel lappy for an issue with the screen and the body wearing out. So I’ll be back on the old power book lappy for a few days. Then I’ve got to make a phone call about getting a meeting at Fox Sports.
So today I unlease Donna Lewis on the Single of the Day. Apparently she’s got a record for the most played radio single in 1998 or something. I’m pretty sure I had heard the name Donna Lewis before, but I wasn’t aware she held a record for global radio play. That’s pretty amazing. However, it obviously never reached my ears before. So she’s new to meet. Hopefully she’s new to you too.
I’m a sucker for the production chops. She’s got that modern pop sound. There’s a whole lot of ear candy in here. I would almost liken it to a cross of something like KT Tunstal and Peter Gabriel. There’s a whole lot of little shifts and noises in there. Lots and lots of ear candy. The very thing that I like doing on some of my songs (Hero Unexpected comes to mind, among other new songs I’m working on). Obviously she’s got some chops for singing too. It all works. Get it now and put the top down as you hit the highway!
