When it Comes - Groove Fondue
When it Comes - Groove Fondue Track number: 1 Year: 1997 Album: Unscented
Cut a CD back in the 90's with my writing partner. He wrote this piece and sang the lead, we split the guitars. Produced by Scott Ferguson who also took care of percussion with John Chaisson on bass and Kim Dunn on keyboards.
Groove Fondue - Night Falls
Groove Fondue - Night Falls Track number: 2 Year: 1997 Album: Unscented
Wrote this, played the rhythm guitars, Don played the fills and I cut the harmony leads in the middle eight and sang the lead and we both sang the backups with the exception of Lisa MacDougall singing the female parts.
Occupational Hazard Track number: 3 Year: 1997 Album: Unscented
Sang the lead, played the acoustic. Don played the lead and we both sang backup. Despite the fact I tend to have a heavier sensibility, I ended up writing mostly acoustic material for this CD. Go figger. After this project I recognized that as a lead vocalist... I make a fine backup vocalist. Bad chops, bad chops, bad chops. Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?
