The journey

I wrote this whilst on holiday at Bawdsey in Suffolk (the seagulls were recorded on the beach). I was thinking how the river and the driftwood have no choice where they go and what happens to them. We may think we’re the same but We’re not... It’s in dropped D tuning, the verse hanging on a sort of D chord and the end of the verse running down from C to A chromatically.

I have always loved songs about water - rivers and seas particularly. I've tried to be disciplined enough to hold a single chord in the verse to allow the lyrics to breathe. The song is essentially a bit of philosophy exploring the nature of free will.



I hope you like it.

Don’t Buy Me...

One of my co-writers, Sierra, was talking about being frustrated w/ guys whose idea of romance is sitting at a bar, when she said, "Don't buy me a drink; ask me to dance!" So I started playing a mid-tempo waltz and we worked up the melody and lyrics.

Santorini, Let Me Love...

This is a demo I produced over Christmas as one of the 4 finalists for the IMSTA FESTA songwriting competition. the finalist from Toronto, LA, Chicago, and NY had to write a song with "Santorini" in the title for the grand prize to Black Rock Studios in Santorini Greece. It is now being judged and the winner will be announced at NAMM the end of this month. So this is a love song for Santorini:)

A Little More Country...

I wrote this song specifically for another artist's project with their producer Rory Feek, but it didn't make the record. It was pitched around for 6 or 7 years before another young artist came to town and finally recorded it. It was worth the wait.



This is the original demo of what became my first #1 country song recorded by Easton Corbin.



Wynn Varble, the third writer is singing the demo.

Distant Charms

One of the first times I miced the drums (I had been using the Roland TD6)...ONLY two mics! (I now have a more professional set-up!). But I like the feel and considering, the sound of the drums is okay. I play everything on this but got Nico (French bassist) to add his bit.

Two Steps at a...

Co-written w/Russell Sutton. A good ol' Texas dance hall two-stepping song with instructions on how to two-step that also work within the larger story. In the chorus, listen for "One," "Two," "Right" and "Left" for a mini-dance lesson.

This song was one of those rare writes where we didn't know where it was going when we started, but I started playing a groove, and "Old man's Cadillac" set the tone. I usually like a stronger hook, but this ended up with a great feel, so we kept it.

Here’s what songwriters are saying...

Getting feedback on my work is so invaluable. Nothing's better than hearing whether or not I'm on the right track or not. Frettie is an incredible place to mentor and be mentored. It's also a great way to come together in collaboration.
