GOD ONLY KNOWS

I received a phone call while I was at work. As I answered the phone, I could hear someone on the other end, but he was so emotional, I couldn't understand what he was saying, or who it was. After a moment of trying to console this person, I could tell it was my brother-in-law, as he composed himself enough to say, "He's gone, James is gone!" James was his son, my nephew and my son's best friend. James had a dynamic personality and was only 28 when a head-on collision with another car took his life... I couldn't stop asking, "Why?" I wrote this song for the service, but I was way too emotional to sing it. This recording of Tim Buppert's vocals & production was played.

That was Then, This...

Potentially a Pop/Country hybrid? This one REALLY needs a female vocal. Attempts to capture the women's perspective re: moving on after a relationship ends. I'm especially fond of the "lifetime of tomorrows" hook.

Dear Mama

My mom had to go through open heart surgery and this song was born of that experience. I hope this song reminds you to think of your mom and how mom's are always there.

I Haven’t Heard...

Circles around the notion of "hearing" memories. How a song can immediately take you to another place or time and hold you there til it ends. The singer is in the middle of those memories when the songs end and comes back to reality with a smile!

Can’t Rewind

Someone once said that the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. And so it goes with a bad relationship that ends, begins again only to result in the same tragic ending as before.

WHAT’S IN YOUR...

WHAT’S IN YOUR HEART (written by Jack Speer, sung by Tim Buppert, produced by Tre' Corely of Oak Tree Studios):

I’ll never forget the first time I met my great-grandmother. I was 6-years-old when I awoke from the back of my parents’ station wagon, only to see a dilapidated old shack with cows all around. I had just seen the Wizard of Oz and the old lady standing on the front porch of this shack had long white hair and looked a lot like the witch in the Wizard of Oz. I was scared to death of this old lady. But, in no time, I loved her. I once asked, “Are you poor?” She smiled and said, “Wealth is but a frame of mind and I’m as rich as you will find.” I learned so much from my great-grandmother.

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.
