Truth Is Better Than Fiction

FREE DOWNLOAD – A couple of years ago I was asked to write a soundtrack for an independent film called “The Returning”. (www.thereturning.com) The producer wanted a modern score, filled with songs that would stand on their own. This song was written for a scene in which one of the main characters (a little girl who happens to be seeing a ghost – for real) is being evaluated by a psychologist.

MaryAnne

From the archives…a softer country crossover-ish piece written as a teenage lullabye.

The Void

… a ghostly girl’s vocal abstract against strong sonic textures that remind me of really thick ocean fog.

High Octane

This is a soundtrack/trailer piece I wrote for a heavy-duty action sequence, complete with helicopters, unmarked cars racing through the city, and a sweeping view of a military warship in the San Diego Bay…

Launching Paper Cranes

After the 2004 tsunami that wreaked havoc and devastation on the people of Indonesia,  Myles Crawley wrote and recorded the song  Launching Paper Cranes. He asked me to add keyboards, my daughter Alana to add flute, and the whole family to sing backup vocals on the recording; it was a great way to make sense of the sadness we felt.   In light of recent events, our family offers this for free download as a memorial for the people of Japan.  We also hope that it acts as a renewed memorial for all those in the world who have fallen victim to disasters of all kinds:  natural disasters, terrorism, war, corporate neglect, environmental destruction, hate crimes… the list goes on and on.

I would like to add my own spin to the downloads that come from this site (and I have no way to track this, so it’s Scout’s Honor all the way):  if you like the song and download it, can you please donate a minimum of $1.00 US (or the international equivalent) to the American Red Cross (if you can afford it- if you can’t, please just download the song and send good vibes to Japan!!!).

Too Little Too Late

I wrote and recorded this song in 24 hours, trying to meet an entry submission deadline for a theme song to an up and coming British sitcom about a man flirting with a midlife crisis. Being a huge fan of old episodes of British sitcoms, including Are You Being Served, and As Time Goes By, etc. I couldn’t help but build the instrumental bridge to this song with a strong nod to the musical flavorings of those AWESOME shows. Thanks to the engineering wizardry and outstanding patience of my hubby, Myles Crawley, I met the deadline. Didn’t get the show, but I still think the song would go great with a generous helping of… oh, say, Bill Murray? LOL.
