Honey In My Head

This is my latest demo. I've posted this song here before as a work tape. Special thanks to Kyle who helped me with some linguistic questions and all the others for feedback. I didn't change a lot, only some small tweaks.

He Has Come

A Christian / Holiday song of praise, "He Has Come" is a narrative surrounding the night Jesus was born and when the Angels arrived to share the good news.

"One of the most endearing things about this single is that it doesn't feel limited to just the Christmas season. Its simplicity gives the track depth and makes the song both attractive and usable for local churches. Musically, it has a sound reminiscent of the beautiful Motown holiday hits, while at the same time matching contemporary throwback styles with a heavy pinch of gospel". - Ryan Barbee (JesusFreakhideout.com)

Jesus Ways

The song "Jesus Ways" tells a story of two men crossing paths. One of the men soon reveals himself to be Satan, as he is blaspheming God and saying that destruction is coming and that no one can be spared. The singer is the other man, a believer in Christ, who denies the devil's lies and temptation. The song is a testament to the power we have over the enemy.

I wanted to illustrate how the devil's always in the background trying to influence one's soul. However when you believe in a higher power the temptation of evil is just not possible.

Who’s the Matter...

Rough track which is on my list of songs to produce soon. It's about a breakup with a serious girlfriend who starts acting distant and cold, and the male character is not sure why at first.

Who’s The Matter With You?

I saw you in the aisle today.
I wandered over just to say, “Hey.”
You smiled half-heartedly,
You didn’t have much to say.

You spoke too carefully,
So polite you were killing me,
The two of us acting like strangers...
Then it dawned on me.

Chorus 1
Who’s the matter with you?
Have you really found someone new?
I should have held you when I had my chance
Maybe this would still be my dance
I know you way too well.
Who’s the matter with you?

Been awhile since we went our ways.
It happened so fast,
It’s all just a haze,
The two of us acting like school kids.
Our love was ablaze.

You know I’ve tried to stay away.
My thoughts won’t always obey.
I wonder if your heart’s still healing,
Seems you’re more than okay.

Chorus 2
Who’s the matter with you?
Have you really found someone new?
I should have held you when I had my chance.
Maybe this would still be my dance.
I know you way too well,
Who’s the matter with you?

Bridge
I know we have to move on,
Stop hurting about the past.
What could have been?
What might have been?
It’s really pointless to ask
I know you way too well,
and I’m sadder than you.

Guitar Solo

I know it’s not my place.
I’ve got to give you your space.
Can’t bear the thought in my mind:
"Have I been replaced?"

Chorus 3
Who’s the matter with you?
Have you really found someone new?
I should have held you when I had my chance.
Maybe this would still be my dance.
I know you way too well,
Who’s the matter with you?

Who’s the matter with you?
Who’s the matter with you?
Who’s the matter with you?
Who’s the matter with you?

Last Flight Home

This is a new draft - second Version - of the song. I have posted my first version a week ago. It's a little bit more produced, so I can better see which direction it could go. Vocal range is a bit too wide for me.

Nice-n-Painless

Just a work tape level, rough song idea here. Only basic, muddy guitar and the loop. And sorry no auto tune. ...- Ugh. Thanks for your thoughts!

This is based on the idea that wounded love CAN live another day. The guy's remembering just how easy it once was for them to simply bury the hatchet. He knows that she's got the silver bullet to ensure their love lives on and on.

Wild at Heart

Started with a guitar riff I'd had for ages, with the working title "The Rebel Song" until I settled on a concept, which is somewhat "Dead or Alive" in theme I guess. As usual, a work tape more than demo!

Here’s what songwriters are saying...

Frettie is an easy and non-threatening way to get feedback on my music. It's fun that songwriters can post work-tapes or finished projects. The feedback that I receive is from those who also care about the muse, the songs and the process.
