New Video – Live Broadcast 25 Nov 2014

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Throw Back Thursday! In this instance, my throw backs are in the form of songs… hope this is acceptable! If you enjoy, please share! Thank you! Thank you to all who came to the recent video webcast!

This is a clip from my part of NuMuBu’s new programming Tuesdays for SONGWRITERS, a weekly live video webcast series featuring independent artists dedicated to the art and craft of songwriting.

For this half hour set, I discussed and performed rearranged versions of songs and recordings taken from some of my past album projects, including three solo and one band project. The songs are as follows, plus some chat about Junkk. I have edited out some of the chatter…

  1. Number on His Brow
    from Binary Star 1997 Debut release (World Music, New Age, Folk/Pop, Dance)
    The song was written about the plight of displaced children in a war torn country. Rescue workers marked their foreheads with numbers in order to identify each child. Some dependents in first world countries may metaphorically experience this as their care givers are too busy with their own lives…
  2. Illusive Dream
    from Let The Phoenix Fly 2013 3rd solo release (Acoustic, Piano, MOR, Adult Contemporary, Jazz)
    Don’t stop chasing an illusive dream…

  3. Junkk Music for the Soul
    from Junkk 2002 sophomore release (World, Hip-Hop, Dance-Pop)

  4. You’re Not Alone
    from A Fool’s Paradise, Greenhaus release 2010 (Trip Hhop, Dream-Pop, Space-Rock)
