Description: My recorded heartbeat from a sonogram is heard in the intro as my arranger-producer dad wanted to convey the very special interest he had in my arrival even half-way through gestation by recording my heart with a handheld cassette recorder in a physicians office.

With the first piano motif begins a ‘dialogue’ with my dad [on the outside] with his piano part answering. A ‘conversation’ develops between us in this way until the moment of birth itself as the production gives way to cellos, cymbal dynamics and a French horn section that enjoin the piano representing the ‘trauma’ of emerging from the womb and its resolution which quickly follows.

At this point, a pop ensemble of drums, bass, guitars and two sections of violins displaying the bowing techniques of spiccato and pizzicato accompany the lyrical verses and choruses of the song structure until the bridge, where backwards lead guitar dynamically punctuate the lyrical lament.

The chorus returns which gives way to a free-style section of production evocative of the psychedelia of the late ‘60’s with tamboura, dulcimer, McCartneyesque bass guitar part and an ‘I Am The Walrus’ cello section which sets up the outro with a IV of IV chord transition to the song’s conclusion.

"You have a lovely voice and a really unique melodic/lyric sense.  From an artist standpoint (i.e. you writing songs for you to sing), this song feels like it's a very genuine fit for your voice/tone.  What a beautiful talent you are!  There are many interesting things happening melodically and musically...These are very pretty songs with a really unique approach - from an artistic level, I appreciate that creativity very much!  I really enjoyed listening to this material - both the performance and the songs themselves. I will be paying attention to where you go from here... " :)

---Taxi, May 1, /2009

"The lyrics express a heartfelt sentiment.  Great job giving the chorus a sense of release and a dynamic shift in gears. The chord progression is well-crafted, with natural transitions between sections. The mood conjured by the music is a good fit for the emotional tone of the words.  The musicianship is consistently impressive, and there is lots of tasty playing here. In particular, you create some great lush textures with the string orchestration."

---Taxi, August 14, 2009

"...your songs have a nice vibe and feature good musical and melodic parts plus some memorable hooks. The musicianship is capable, fluid and fitting and the production sounds good..."
