Co-Writes
 
Co-Writes Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $12.00
Artist: Marc Jonson & David Grahame
 
 
Quantity:
 

Between 1990 and 2005, poppers Marc Jonson and David Grahame traversed to each other’s coasts to collaborate on the batch of outstanding songs presented here.  And, who better than Marc Jonson to detail the tracks?  “’Baby Blonde’ was written and recorded in my home studio in Greenwich Village.  David would stop over and we’d each grab a guitar and start a bit of a jam.  Out of this usually came a bunch of chords that felt right for our voices.  ‘Near Me’ is a big, dramatic strumming song stating the singers desire to find a mutual love interest.  Once we established the melody pattern each of us runs ahead of the song as it’s being un-earthed and suggests the next line.  You gotta trust your writing partner and he has to trust you. That way you can interrupt each other’s suggestions to fine tune each other’s lyrics.  ‘Midnight Sun’ is just two guys with two guitars with that ‘Midnight Sun’ idea in our heads. You don’t expect the ‘red pajamas’ line.  My voice went to its absolute lowest threshold singing this.  David will take a common chord structure and invert it for the bridge or chorus idea. When one of us comes out with a line we are improvising live as we’re singing and the other doesn’t want to change it, then it’s gonna be the line.  On ‘From Where I Stand’ David came up with the palming electric guitar rhythm that repeats. We both started suggesting lyrics as soon as we knew where the chord progression was going.  Romantic in nature and full of little lyrical twists that express the singer’s frustration.  ‘Will The Tears Fall From My Heart’ - David is the master of counterpoint guitar to add intrigue and interest to a composition.  He’s a great bass and guitar player so when he puts those instruments on a track it glues it to the moon, forever.  ‘Don’t Turn to Walk Away’ is Roy Orbison calling!  You can slip into a certain artists vibe, know you’re there and you don’t care if it’s got legs of it’s own. I’d look over at David and think, ‘well he’s not stopping where this is going so neither will I.’  ‘One in a Million Passing Loves’ was a fun song to record, it’s mostly David. His smooth background blend is his sound, that’s him. It has a Beach Boys thing to it.  He does it effortlessly too, I watched him so many times.  One voice goes on then his next voice adheres like paint.  ‘Lover’s Lane’ is full of shadowy mystery under the moon and stars with kind of a John Lennon-inspired vocal. ‘Best of Both Our Worlds’ is very psychedelic and A-tonal.”  GREAT!!
