A couple of months back I was talking to Jack Walker (humblecomposer) who was telling me he needed to write a country song for a horror short he was scoring. He said he had lyrics from the scriptwriter but no melody. I offered to take a look at the lyrics and see if anything came to me. About two minutes later I sang him back my idea (which was not at all a country tune) and he loved it and asked if I'd like to work on the song with him. In the end, I wrote the music and the lyrics for the bridge. Then we started bouncing it back and forth from my studio to his, both adding parts as we went along. The last instrumentation we added was the saxophone. Jack enlisted a friend of his, Adam Tese, for the job. Adam has recorded for and toured with some well known artists. He did an incredible job on the song.
You can hear a clip on CDBaby and it's available, or will be soon, on the usual sites (iTunes, Spotify, AmazonMP3, Google Music Store, Shazam, Pandora, Sound Exchange, and YouTube Music).
Here are the vitals: Lyrics - Violetta Anna Licari Music - Jim Caputo Mixed by Jack Walker, Bad Dog Digital Music; Holtsville, NY Mastered - Abbey Road Studios; London, England This song will appear in the movie "Aye" which will released in October 2019.
Yeah. That's happened with half the stuff CD Baby has sent to YouTube for me. There's a way to straighten it out that will require some time and effort on my part, but CD Baby says even then YouTube may choose to simply ignore the issue and do nothing.
