I love 60's and 70's pop songwriting styles. I am inspired by the Baroque Pop and Chamber Pop counterpoint, textural and harmonic flows of the 60's styles to Acoustic Singer Songwriter song forms and Art Rock textural production techniques from the 70's. I am looking for people interested in blending Jazz, Acoustic, R&B/Soul, Classic Pop, Singer Songwriter, The textural, atmospheric productions of art rock, Psychedelic pop. Interesting production, but having the song be the main focus. The song is the thing! I want to pursue interesting, sophisticated chord progressions and harmonies, and interesting melodies weaving through that harmonic landscape., emphasis on vocals and vocal harmonies. I like groove and to have the music swing.

You're The Ghost I See
You're The Ghost I See Year: 2013 Album: Nectarine - Skywritten Memory Genre: Acoustic
Did you feel me watching you stand there? You turned around, I saw your eyes. I know by now you won't remember me. I think you see me as another guy. The cashier's talking so you turn away. There's a price for it. And you'll have to pay. And as I leave you're walking right towards me. Your're walking right through me... and then you're gone. You're the ghost I see But you don't see me. Did you feel me watching you stand there? You turned around, I saw your eyes. An orphan looks for someone everywhere. An orphan is a thousand mile stare. You're the ghost I see But you don't see me.
