“Mesmerized" ruminates the wonderment of falling in love: recognizing the unique feelings, watching “it” grow and pervade each waking moment, attempts to resist it and, finally, surrendering to the powerlessness one feels when besieged in its rapture.

Album Notes
The single “Mesmerized”, by singer-songwriter and composer Raul Quines, highlights the level of maturity, craftsmanship and style that is all his own. Of course, there is no hiding of the influences of two of his favorite bands, The Beatles and Queen. This song is rich and stocked with unmistakable elements of his classical lineage: the complementing vocal harmonies, Beethoven-esque string orchestration, and a Sibelius-meets-Bach contrapuntal writing of the lyrical cello-solo that, at the same time, anchors the soaring vocal line in the reprise. Raul Quines exhibits the qualities of a seasoned songwriter in this strong single song debut.

Raul Quines's diverse musical constitution is drawn from Classical Music, the Big Band Era, 60’s and 70’s Rock, Motown, R&B, Funk, World, Alternative, and the Pop music culture. His compositions have been performed and recorded by some of today’s lauded music ensembles, such as the Composers Concordance, Absolute Ensemble, Sweet Plantain, Locrian Chamber Players and Vivace Orchestra (of Stringendo). As music director of New York City based group, N.O.W. Collective, he enjoys collaborating with artists from multiple disciplines (theatre, dance, poetry, and visual arts, to name a few). Raul Quines is a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music.
