Wonderful! I was so pleased to see the remix notification in my inbox (I collect them for Haskel… what can I say?) I love this! I always enjoy when you do the jazzy thing, and with Haskel… mmmm, delicious. Is that you singing? I appreciate the lyrics as well, both the source and your interpretation. Super job. Bravo!

Thank you so much. I was actually going to send you this track first, I had the two of you in mind…then I LOST my mind and started singing…lol So yea, you’re officially the first person to ever hear my voice in public.

I’ll upload the stems tomorrow, I really wanna hear what you can do with it. I’m calling it a night for now.

Good for you for singing!

What happened to the vocals? They sounded good.

Yea, I took them down, was feeling a little self conscious..first time puttin my voice in public. But, I don’t care anymore. I put it back up : )

BTW I LOVE your guitar work, you can expect a lot more remixing from me with your samples.

And you can sing too? I really think you got more than your fair share of talent. Your singing voice is so natural and unforced. Excellent.

Thanks man. It’s nice to be able to edit, don’t think I’d ever sing live or anything..lol

Thanks, I feel like I’m having an identity crisis…
all my life as a musician and never sang a note..lol

I’d like an identity crisis, like yours :)

WOW - extremely cool indie jazz. I really enjoy the composition and harmonies of the voices. And your voice and singing fits perfectly to this style. Give us more of this kind!
permalink   Jeris Thu, May 19, 2011 @ 3:58 PM
Hey that’s what it is…Indie Jazz, why didn’t I think of that? New tags

you’re a total triple threat!

This is great - poetic, literate, poignant, and laid back in its brushy ambiance. a real treat of a listen.
permalink   Jeris Thu, May 19, 2011 @ 4:03 PM
Thanks Admiral!
permalink   Fri, May 20, 2011 @ 1:49 PM
Give us more stuff like this - so I can pick it as the Catch of the day. :)

haha…sure : )

In each new remix I hear, you amaze me, and I love it.
permalink   Jeris Fri, May 20, 2011 @ 3:55 PM
Hey, I was just listening to your latest…quite an arrangement, I like the solo piano at the end, tasteful!

Such a lovely feel to the words. Simple, deep, transcendent and deeply hypnotic.

Beautiful. n9

Thank you!!

Very cool bit of work. I too appreciate the naturalness of this. All the pieces of the puzzle are at home here. While you may have taken the stage for the first time with your voice, you sound more like you are on the couch with friends gathered around you.

I was particularly pleased at the way you listed the quotes that inspired you. Often when I am writing I will be thinking of something I really like that I’ve seen or heard but I will be trying so hard to not to copy or allude to it that I will go blank and do nothing. Of course that is not what art is about at all, but it makes for a heck of neurosis :-).

Thank you, thank god for search engines too, I think for years I held onto pieces of these from memory but never actually knew the source..lol

Extremely beautiful. Lovin these lyrics and vocals!!!

This is incredibly good. Everything about this clicks with me - excellent songwriting, well-played instruments and production that allows each element to have their space without bumping into each other.

And the singing? It’s very, very good. If you shared your pella I think you would have many people jumping on the opportunity to work with it.

Lovely work.
permalink   Jeris Fri, Jun 3, 2011 @ 7:42 AM
Thank you! This was the first time I ever really recorded myself singing, so I was really shy about sharing it especially the pella. But, I think I’m over it. I’ll post the pella tonight :)
permalink   Jeris Fri, Jun 3, 2011 @ 10:47 PM
Almost forgot. I just put up the pella, also uploaded the stems.
permalink   colab Sat, Jun 4, 2011 @ 1:24 PM
Very generous of you to do that. Thank you.
permalink   Fri, Jun 3, 2011 @ 2:24 PM
If there is one thing i have learned it is that no one has a ` bad ’ voice. Some one somewhere is always going to love whatever you do. Nice to hear you singing Jeris.
permalink   Jeris Fri, Jun 3, 2011 @ 2:27 PM
I agree, guess I’ve always just remembered this quote…

“even with birds, some can sing…some can’t”

I’m Floating with this one.
permalink   Jeris Sat, Jun 11, 2011 @ 5:27 PM
Float like a buttafly….sing like a bee…lol

Thanks to Susan I discovered this amazing, beautiful song. You remind me of a male Norah Jones, just masculine and yet still pure and gentle. this is utterly gorgeous.
permalink   Jeris Sun, Jun 14, 2015 @ 7:36 PM
Awesome, best review evah…love me some Norah Jones : )
