about

It took us roughly one year to record, mix and master the album in an analog recording studio. We took things back to the basics for this project and recorded on a 2" inch 16 track reel to reel tape machine. I have been told its the same machine that the band Blind Mellon used back in the 90's. No computers were used in the recording phase of this project. We wanted to keep things as authentic and organic as possible.

The tape sound has always intrigued me as an artist as it offers a soft three dimensional tone similar to listening to a record on vinyl. We are proud of this project and all the people who helped us through the entire process. One thing I've learned is that no one is successful my themselves. It usually takes a great team of people that pick you up when you think you cant finish.

Track Name: Song called Dreams
Instrumental
Track Name: The Key
You'll lie in bed the words unfair and I cannot believe
With words unsaid and lay to bed the past and my belief
We'll dry your tears and harm your fears
You past is never free
Ill hold your hand and be your man
And help to turn the Key

Hold the water from you eyes
As the morning dove can fly
Will you seek only to find
The key to you was always inside

you'll lie in there with dreams still spinning in your head
with words unsaid and lay to bed the past and my belief
We'll dry your tears
We'll dry your tears.

California:
V1 Take a holiday far away from here far away from everything
V2 I believe in You, You believe in me we can see eternally

Chorus: I’ve been on my knees and I’ve been trying to pray to find you
Sleeping all the day and I’ve been on my way
You’re frozen in mind
I’ll be fine in California (repeat)

V3 We made it through survived another day all the debt is paid
V4 The waves so high it drownded all the fear and then You disappeared.

Chorus: I’ve been on my knees and I’ve been trying to pray to find you
Sleeping all the day and I’ve been on my way
You’re frozen in mind
I’ll be fine in California (repeat)
Bridge: Instrumental

Chorus:
I’ve been on my knees and I’ve been trying to pray you’re frozen in my mind

Peace of my mind in California
In my mind is California
Take my time.

V4 Give me the peace and heart to move on, as I sit and dream of my Freedom song

Track Name: My Soul
My Soul:
Let’s take a holiday that leads me to your secret place
Lock the doors and drop the shades
Your soul will always light the way
I can find the words to say that push me further everyday

I got a treasure in my soul picks me up when I’m alone
And I try to save tonight
I got a treasure in my soul picks me up when I’m alone
And I try to save tonight

Hold my life inside Your hands where the ocean waves meet the sand
If I could do it all again I’d lose my life to save a friend
I can find the words to say that push me further everyday

I got a treasure in my soul picks me up when I’m alone
And I try to save tonight
I got a treasure in my soul picks me up when I’m alone
And I try to save tonight

Try to save tonight

Cover me…with your love

I got a treasure in my soul picks me up when I’m alone And I try to save tonight all those things that shine so bright
Track Name: Blues Jam(1)
