Couldn't wait to jump in and be part of the HitRECord community so I figured I'd just upload some of my tunes to begin with!
This song came to me as I walked to Torchy’s Tacos for some lunch. On the way home, a song just suddenly came to me out of nowhere. I just started singing the first line and almost immediately had a pretty full idea of where the song was going. It’s like it was just suddenly channeling through me, pouring out of me. I knew that it had at least a dash of inspiration from a Sheryl Crow song, and Elvis Costello song, Muse’s version of “Feelin’ Good” and a Butch Walker song that had come on my iPhone “shuffle” 2 or 3 times in the last week called “Pretty Melody”. While it was nothing like the song rapidly birthing itself from my mind, I remember noting the quality of the vocals and that I really liked how they sounded raspy and kind of “tired” like he’d just woken up. I think another ingredient was that I’d been playing “L.A. Noire” on the Xbox 360, an atmospheric detective story set in the 1940's. A few scenes took place in a jazzy club complete with a sultry German songstress.
Whatever the ingredients, I was being blessed with an aggressive muse that would not be ignored. About 2 hours later I had completed writing the music and lyrics. I immediately started recording. Keyboards first, then drums, then bass, and lastly guitar. roughly 10 hours after the first notes and words and come to me from beyond, I had finished recording all the music. The next day, I took care of the vocals. A day or two of intense listening and fine tuning and it was complete. And I loved it. It was absolutely everything I wanted it to be. It said everything I needed it to say. Had exactly the atmosphere, feeling, passion and emotions that I wanted infused into it.
So throw on your best gown or suit, pull the brim of your hat down low, come on into the club and picture a sweaty little trio, traditional in some ways, ahead of their time in others, performing a song called "Insomnia."

I'm not that lucky, i signed to hitrecord three weeks ago, didn't have time to do re-recs yet a buu! buzzing with ideas for remixes and so far!....i just recovered from one cold, got another, no way i can sing again for at least a week, frustrated! i'll be honest, i fell in with love Mademoisselle Noir" by ppeppina- and i'm adding this to my playlists this week!
Okies, now... one week ago i said to "TheSerpentCharmer" that i will jam with the band after reading "Of Messangers and Wolves"Remix and yes we did- MF had a jam sesh , glass of rum and this is the first take, with crunchy-glitchy beats from Jim T. , Johnny on guitar, Dave on bass, i have no clue where this tune will go- still looking for the melody and amending lyrics.... If you like using this music under narration or short movie, i say go for it! Just smooth it a bit in ableton as this is pretty much raw take , If anybody like the beat, please ask me for the stem, word!
Words roughly were:
When i clench my fists i recall enemies
When i feel the violence is breaking through me
It;s changing me,
it shutters me
I'm trying to face obstacles they left for me
Single shot of the poison
straight into my blood
I start to believe that
God is hate
it's never too late
it's never too late
i'm running with open wounds....

Another finished piece done strictly with Muro, to test the app out a few years ago. Couldn't tell you how long it took, apparently I didn't take note at the time. Oops. :)

Made this for a movie I'm working on, figured you guys could use it as well! (I wish that was me playing. I cheated and used MIDI. But then I made it sound real, so that's something!) It's in the public domain.
This piece is beautiful. I freaking love it.
that one kiss meant goodbye or goodnight,
i pray it's the latter and know i'm not right.
