Seattle Rock and Roll “AY B Si` Rock and Roll
on April 16, 2016 in
My new Album (CD)“Ay B Sì” is a collection of songs that mean a lot to me.Recording and Producing the Record at Robert Lang Studio is something I have done for many other artists and bands but this was the first time for me.
The Band Of Amazing Friends are folks I have known and worked with for many years and the performances that they give on The New CD “Ay B Si`” make them truly Amazing. The Amazing Friends helped me create the treatment and feel that I was looking for with this record. These Musicians and Vocalists gave me so much and helped me to keep the focus on the tunes.Some of the songs are mine, some from the Late Great Stevie B Hallahan (RIP) and cover song that I love including “You are not alone” written by Jasey Schnaars, and a song by Leonard Cohen that I love, “Everybody Knows” and the inspirational “Pieces of The Rain” written by Danny O’Keefe. Recorded at Robert Lang Studio and Vagrant Studio here in Seattle with me, Homero Glez S and Lari Peterson engineering. I produced the songs the way I wanted to hear them and Chris Hanzek Mastered the songs with great precision.
Step Off Originally Stevie B. Hallahan started writing and after he passed away, I finished the song. Greg and Max heard me and what I was trying to say.
Hand Me Down World A Stevie B. Hallahan composition from his band “The Alleged Perpetrators”,a song that should never be lost or forgotten. This Band of Amazing Friends (some of whom knew Stevie B) feel the song.
Marijuana This is not about getting high. It’s a PSA with valuable information that can help this planet survive.
Draw the Line I am “Calling Out” those who would protest online instead of coming out in the streets, sure the net can call you to act but if you come out and vote, we’ll all hear your voice.
Everybody Knows My take on the Leonard Cohen Song that I heard long ago and it never left my head.
You are not alone My pal Jasey Schnaars’ song of hope, that I when I first heard it in the 80’s, it touched me and the Band.
Talk to Me I asked her to talk, she wanted to walk; I want to walk, she wants to talk.
You Know Me A simple song of what was and her obsession with her toy.
There She Was Another Stevie B. Hallahan composition that I feel, felt and wanted to share.
Papa Don’t think He’ll Make It For my pop and my kids.
Mercedez My Tribute to Barry White.
Pieces of the Rain My friend Danny O’Keefe’s sweet song of what was.
Goodbye (CYA) Written the night of my friend, mentor and business partner Don “Dodger” Dodge’s passing to the other side. Rest in Peace Dodger.
