Hold Tight

A  funky mid-tempo R&B duet written in the music room of Backer & Spielvogel Advertising with Linda LoPresti in the early 1980’s.  For simplicity’s sake, I’ve recorded all vocals…I’m hearing Bruno Mars as a good cast for this one.  See what you think!

How Long

David Burrello provides the foundation rhythm track as this track turned out to be a Springsteen style vocal performance…am I giving myself too much credit?

A fun ditty that you can tap your feet to!...Dave plays great guitar on this one!

Written in the fall of 2021.

I Can't Live Without
My Phone

Written in the summer of 2023, "I Can't Live Without My Phone" satirizes the addiction of the portable cell phone in the modern world. EVERYBODY'S ON THE PHONE...ALL THE TIME!

 

Has the obsession with the phone caused the loss of social skills, empathy and the ability to concentrate?...especially among the young? Are algorithms and "likes" our new "North Star?".

 

Yours truly sings this "even-eighth" rock style track..enjoy!

I Still Love You

A “Disney” style duet that just “happened” at the keyboard one day in 1993.  It screams for animation while being played.  The orchestration was synthetically programmed but the listener will get the idea of what a true orchestra would sound like.

I'll Always Love You

I met this fellow Drew K. in 2011 at the guitar center and as we spoke I found out he went to Juilliard School of Music.  After hearing him sing on a CD of his tunes, I wrote “I’ll Always Love You” with his voice in mind…Peobo Bryson meets Andrea Bocelli!

I'll Be Loving You

I must have re-wrote this tune over a dozen times!...When I heard Garth Brooks singing Bob Dylan’s “If You Could Feel My Love”…I said to myself, “they stole my tune!”  Steve Randazzo does a great job on vocals...a sweet love song.

I'll Be There Loving You

Years ago I was producing the music tracks for the Campbell’s Soup company.  The request from the music department was for a music production in the style of Ann Murray or Karen Carpenter…a warm maternal voice delivering delicious soup to her little ones!

 

After listening to many recordings…the melody of “I’ll Be There Loving You” started to germinate in my mind.  Finally completed the thought as of Jan. 2021.

 

Leslie Waltzer brings her sweet voice ala Judy Collins to this recording.

Irena's Theme

This piano piece was written as a theme for Hallmark Theatre’s production of the “Irena Sendler Story.”  Ms. Sendler was credited with saving many Polish Jewish children during the Nazi attack on Poland.  However the director was changed and other creative people were contracted…the piece never got heard…

Jaylee

Jaylee Chillson-5 copy.png

The caption in the newspaper under her photo read... "Jaylee Chillson, the 14 year-old Kansas girl who shot herself dead in front of a deputy after running away from home, had been bullied for years, her grieving father said."

This story hit me like a ton of bricks...kids can be vicious enough... but arm them with the weapons of social media in addition to direct  "in-your-face"  bullying and the outcomes can be tragic.

Where were the "hate-speech" moderators for Jaylee?

Jennifer Rose

I held a little baby in my arms and then put her on my piano as the chords and melody started to flow…way back in ’79…

The lyrics have been “matured” for mass appeal!

Enjoy this soulful mid-tempo track!

The Lady Loves Me

Back in 1982, I had the opportunity to work with George Benson producing a trio of radio ads for Lowenbrau beer.  I was immersed in his music with regards to his vocal range and style of lyric.  I wasn’t going to let the opportunity go to waste and with Linda LoPresti, we crafted “The Lady Loves Me”…with yours truly singing the demo.  Unfortunately,  he never got to hear the demo!

The Last Time I Loved

Years ago I was casting for a Lowenbrau commercial in which the producers wanted a “Willie Nelson” style production of the jingle.  Needless to say, I had spent a great deal of time listening to Willie Nelson records to get acquainted with his vocal and production style.  This experienced hatched the song “The Last Time I Loved”,  Lyrics co-written with Larry Spagnola and sung by master vocalist Steve Randazzo,  I’m sure you’ll hear Willie in this one!

The Last To Let Him Down

valley w:clouds.jpg

In 2019, a well-known engineer/producer named Don Casale sent me a moving video link of a documentary about the Marines at Arlington National Cemetery who prepare the internments of our fallen soldiers.  I had know idea of the preparation facility that is below ground at the cemetery.  The documentary showed the solemn preparation of the marines as they load caskets onto the horse-drawn carriages.  There is a plaque on the wall as they leave to face the mourning families waiting to intern their loved one…it says: “We’re The Last To Let You Down.”

 

Needless to say, I thought it would be great to write a tune in tribute to the men and woman who bury their fallen brothers and sisters…”The Last To Let Him Down”. Grab a Kleenex for this one.

Co-written with Rob Vega in the mid 1980’s, this tune is our tribute to those who live with the spirit of the lord!  Great guitar work by Tom Griffith and vocals by Steve Randazzo.  Kenny Rogers would have been a good cast back in the day.
