'Summerland' is a bitter sweet song, poetically reflecting on love and opportunities both won and lost and how life never quite pans out as expected but is still one big adventure! Male Vocals, Country, New Country
'You Got a Hold on Me'- One person devotedly promising unconditional love to another because it's impossible to let go, despite life's difficulties. The words are accompanied by a soulful, stirring melody. Male Vocals, Pop, New Romantic
The theme of this modern country influenced song, is that of a father telling his young son that although the boy may have a barrel full of questions about life, if he works hard and lives decently, it will all work out but when push comes to shove, there's no point in just sitting around wondering, Male Vocals, Country, Country Rock
This new country-blues tells of someone enjoying life on the road and a lover waiting, hoping but knowing they're alone now and forever. Lyrics by Tim Earle. Vocals by Siggi Sig. Male Vocals, Blues, Chicago Blues
