I’m hoping to release a new album next year which I’ve decided to call MAGICAL. It will be very different from my debut album: There Goes That Sound in that the music will primarily be love songs and ballads, and the album will be a solo work. I have already written several songs for the album, MAGICAL but still need to write a few more. The first track to introduce this new project is my song, Magical. I hope you enjoy it.
There Goes That Sound: The Story
I’ve been writing songs since my teenage years, I started a few years after learning to play the guitar. I never shared with anyone I knew over here (friends or family) that I had been writing songs throughout the years until I returned from the USA after spending almost twenty years there. It was after sharing a few of my songs that Brian (my childhood friend who later become my brother-in-law) and I decided on a joint venture to bring my songs alive by recording them. I was then left to the task of finding a reputable music distributor to release the album and make the dream a reality. The result is my debut album:
There Goes That Sound is an album that presents the songwriter’s journey through a variety of musical genres and styles with songs that were inspired by both real-life experiences, and fantasy. The range of musical genres within There Goes That Sound are pop, country, folk, dance, jazz, holiday and easy listening/ballads.
While some songs on the There Goes That Sound album carry a clear message, these along with others are also left open to interpretation based on one’s own experiences. Other songs such as The Birthday Song, and The Boogie Song, are simply tongue in cheek. After all, one simply must not take life too seriously.
What excites me most about, There Goes That Sound is it also includes songs for special events and occasions such as birthdays, dance parties, and yes, even Christmas. While listening to the old traditional celebration songs is a wonderful thing, it’s also nice to break away sometimes and try something new.
I Remember which was written with as duet in mind was recorded by Brian and his daughter, Melissa bringing fruition to my dream of it being a duet. Christmas Time became a collaboration between Brian, myself, and Brian’s two daughters, Melissa and Jasmine.
Below are all the single releases from the album: There Goes That Sound. I’ve included each song in full from YouTube so you can listen to them here. Hope you find something you enjoy and many thanks for listening! 🙂
