Song #23 – Maybe I Will

It seems every summer I say to myself, “This will be the summer I relax and enjoy nature and the weather etc etc”, and halfway through it I am hard at work again on some new project.  Usually I’m frustrated at it because it’ll be booking work or online band promotion or whatever… the stuff independent musicians invariably have to take care of in our day to day lives.  This year, it doesn’t feel so bad!  I’m working on multiple projects, but they are mostly artistic in nature.  We ARE planning a tour for September / October in EUROPE, but the stuff I’m mainly focused on is rehearsing my rock opera, my band, and building big puppets!!  We are premiering my rock opera all three nights of the Purple Pig Music Festival in Naples, NY, August 28, 29 and 30th!!  This is a massive undertaking with a big band and a bunch of puppets, something I’ve been working on for the past 8 years.  It’s name is 23 Psaegz.  The band was formed around this project.

Anyway, on to the 100songs project.  It may look as if I’ve slowed down in putting the songs together for you all, but the fact is, we’ve been in Black Dog, a great studio here in Rochester, NY, recording 7 new songs for the project.  In addition to that, there are producers from Belmont, North Carolina, New York City, and Brussels, Belgium working on tracks for this project.  Some really exciting productions are coming out of these talented technicians!!  Without further ado, I’d like to present a track recorded by yours truly and produced / mixed by Brian Speaker at SpeakerSonic Studio, Brooklyn, NY.

MAYBE I WILL
MAYBE I WON’T
PICK UP THE SUN WITH A LADLE MADE OF STARS
LIVE OUT MY DREAMS NO MATTER HOW BIG OR FAR THEY ARE

MOVE AND FOLLOW MY HEART, NO MATTER
NO MATTER WHERE I GO IT’S THE SAME
THEY CAN’T HOLD DOWN MY SOUL, NOT FOREVER
NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO I’LL REMAIN

MAYBE I WILL
MAYBE I WON’T
RIP A HOLE THROUGH THE FABRIC OF REALITY
MAYBE I WILL
MAYBE I WON’T
PICK UP A POSSE AND WE’LL FLY INTO A RAINBOW
MAYBE I CAN MAYBE I CAN’T
BUT IF I DON’T TRY WHAT WOULD BE THE POINT OF ME
MAYBE I WILL
MAYBE WE CAN
AT LEAST I’LL TRY AND JUMP INTO THE SKY AND SEE

MOVE AND FOLLOW MY HEART, NO MATTER
NO MATTER WHERE I GO IT’S THE SAME
THEY CAN’T HOLD DOWN MY SOUL, NOT FOREV ER
NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO I’LL REMAIN
1-2-3 INTO FOREVER
NO MATTER WHERE I GO I’LL REMAIN
THEY CAN’T HOLD DOWN MY SOUL, NOT A MINUTE LONGER
NO MATTER WHAT THEY TAKE I’LL RECLAIM

MAYBE I WILL MAYBE I WON’T
MAYBE I WILL MAYBE I WON’T
MAYBE I CAN, MAYBE I SHOULD
MAYBE THIS PLAN IS DEFINITELY GOOD
DEFINITELY DEFINITELY DEFINITELY GOOD

MOVE AND FOLLOW MY HEART, NO MATTER
NO MATTER WHERE I GO IT’S THE SAME
THEY CAN’T HOLD DOWN MY SOUL, NOT FOREVER
NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO I’LL REMAIN
1-2-3 INTO FOREVER
NO MATTER WHERE I GO I’LL REMAIN
THEY CAN’T HOLD DOWN MY SOUL, NOT A MINUTE LONGER
NO MATTER WHAT THEY TAKE I’LL RECLAIM

Song #22 – Baby Dinosaur

This is a song my daughter and I wrote together. She made up the lyrics, I made up the melody (although I think the melody was kind of made by both of us) so it’s kind of a children’s song!  Friends have been telling me for years I should make an album for kids.  This is the first track, and there should be a few more coming from this 100songs project… My friend Gil Mortio from Brussels, Belgium did the production, which means he did everything except for my voice and guitar… so many things!  He’s the guy who helped produce “Oh Holy Crismas” a couple years back.  He’s awesome and there will be at least two more productions by him coming in the future!  Thanks Gil!  What you did sounds amazing!!
