Uptempo piano based blues featuring slide guitar and saxophone. Lyrics speak about a person who tries to focus on the positive aspects of life. "Ain't got nothin'...'cept nothin' to lose." Laidback, fun rocking music. Cool for comedy sitcom, bar lounge, buddy film. Boy meets Girl and the fun begins! Male Vocals, Blues, Modern Electric Blues
Medium tempo R&B with rock flavoring. The lyrics tell the story of a persons life's journey as it descends through an ugly breakup and finds the bright side of life on the other side of misery. Male Vocals, RnB, Blue-Eyed Soul
A smooth, jazzy stream of consciousness meandering through the events of a given day. "Windows cry, morning fades away..." The poetic abstractness leaves the listener to fill in the gaps with their own story. This concept is perfect to set moods for movie scenes as it does not dictate the viewers in, Male Vocals, Rock, Soft Rock
Medium tempo blues song based on a down and out character who is willing to do what it take to keep on keeping on. Good guitar and sax work and a very "ballsy" vocal! Lonely dude regrets his past, his woman's lying and that just ain't right! Male Vocals, Blues, Chicago Blues
Slow, folksy love song. One man's expression of happiness at the realization that he's found his true love while at the same time acknowledging the frailty of the relationship. Poignant regrets, memories. Hopeful & tenderly upbeat, flashbacks. Hopeful wistful yearning. Alone and lonely. Touching emo, Male Vocals, Rock, Soft Rock
Nice medium tempo jazzy tune. Two lovers are parting ways and the faster the better for the main character who just wants his ex to hit the road ASAP. Just take what you need and go! Mixed Vocals, Jazz, Folk Jazz
Medium tempo,straight forward rock tune. A sad story. You weren't here when I needed you so please go away now! Don't bother to call on me now because we have nothing to say to each other. Goodbye and good luck. Male Vocals, Rock, 90s Rock
Piano based medium tempo rock tune ala 60's flavour. A short and simple message, "Don't worry". Done with a swirling dramatic background vocal, this song is great morning pick-me-up. Male Vocals, Rock, 60s Rock
