ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Let me paint you some songs! Come into my gallery!
1) Not All Angels Have Wings – “Angels” will draw you in with its opening ethereal and mysterious drone followed by what sounds like mighty swords swooshing - picture Gabriel slashing at demons to keep them at bay! Listen for many different languages intoning …“Angels”…“Angels”… in the opening and closing chants. The theme of the message is clear, we all have a higher calling…to share our love by serving others.
2) Chocolate – Who doesn’t love chocolate? It’s simply spelled delicious, dark and sexy – and if you want to know what sexy sounds like, it’s a sultry sax!
3) Song About Nothing – What can I say? My life is definitely not filled with the drama and angst that is the fodder of so many country songs…so I chose to write about my very ordinary existence. Just like Jerry Seinfeld’s show was about nothing – “Song About Nothing” also is about Nada, Zip, Zippola! Most folks will identify with my lyrics because, like me, they’ve led pretty typical lives as well. (A post-production note: Something fun to listen for near the end of Song About Nothing - Shannon came in while we were finishing up the take, unaware that we were recording in the house, and you can hear the creak of the screen door opening as she enters. It sounds so real, you will look around to see who just walked in! Shannon is the Godess of Spring model you can see me painting on the disc).
4) Pink Lipstick Kisses – Paul Singleton’s idea for the title lyric, motif and initial chord progression gave me inspiration for the rest of Pink Lipstick Kisses. As the melody and poetry unfold, the story of a lonely woman who misses her lover’s arms around her at night flows from the opening theme.
5) Little Bird – Paul and I were in the studio, which overlooks my treed yard, when a bird flew up and perched on a branch just outside the window. It was a robin, who looked right in at us for quite a long time, inspiring our song, “Little Bird”. Lyrics, melody and chords were conceived simultaneously…one of those serendipitous things. Incidentally, Mrs. Robin built her nest and fledged two chicks that summer.
6) String Theory – What if we are in just one of myriad universes, each with a population of people just like us on their own earth-like planet? Except perhaps their lives would be on different courses and their loves would be proceeding according to a different plan. In this world, affairs don’t always go accordingly, but the lady with her own string theory sings to her hard-hearted lover, “Out there in a parallel universe, you and I are becoming as one.”
7) Fortunately – The premise in this piece is that children embody innocent messages of love from our ancestral past, and in turn they carry our love with them into the distant future through their children – it’s a gift to which most of us don’t ever give a second thought. “Look in their eyes, what do you see? Love from the past in the present come to be. Love to the future is a gift they will bring on our behalf - a miraculous thing!”
8) Gold Medal Mama – I wrote this piece originally for Deborah Phelps in honor of her son Michael’s 2008 Olympics eight gold medal win. The theme is basically the same…mothers deserve a lot of credit for what their children accomplish…so I revised Gold Medal Mama’s lyrics in honor of our military mothers, who have sacrificed so much for our country.
9) A Place of Hopes and Dreams – One of our earliest compositions and originally called ”Washington Song”, this tune was intended to fill the need for a song about our nation’s capital. You will hear the story of a pair of lovers who found each other in our beloved city. The lyrics evoke many familiar iconic locations and events.
10) Mr. Persistent – Perhaps you’ve met a man like Mr. Persistent - rigid and unfeeling, or maybe you’ve even had a relationship with him. The initial musical motif portrayed in the piano, followed by a stealthy-sounding sax, evokes a certain spy movie of renown, and is meant to instill in the listener a sense of the moody frustration experienced by the protagonist.
11) I Think I Love You More at Christmas – Maybe I’m only dreaming, but I thought perhaps we could use another Christmas standard along the lines of “White Christmas”, so here is my attempt – with a lovely piano accompaniment, thanks to Paul. Isn’t it true that we do indeed love each other more at Christmas? At least once the mad rush of shopping and preparations are done. The final lyric reminds us not to forget where true love comes from – it’s the only gift that counts, and it’s free!
