In the afternoon, it was the turn of my Noise apprentices to pick my brains (so to speak, or was it the other way round?). First up, was Narisa, as we began the task of arranging the song (called Valentine's Day) to be recorded for the upcoming Noise CD. It's a straightforward melodic slab of sunshine pop which I believe will go down well, if we can work out an arrangement that serves the song best.
Next, was Celina and her intriguing modern grunge-folk sensibility - don't ask me why - I keep thinking I need to play for her Neil Young songs. It all gonna make sense soon, trust me. We worked on her song Cinderella, which we hope to grant an earthy feel to convey the emotional weight of the lyrics.
In the meantime, check out some music from these up & coming singer-songwriters.
Yep, MidnightSugarRush is Celina.
Fight is a marvelous song and deserves to be recorded but maybe for another time. What say you, Narisa?
Funnily enough, neither of these songs will on the Noise CD.
Stay tuned for more updates to come...
