Royal Oak

Atmospheric slide and acoustic guitar track. Slow beginning with slide guitar joined by fast broken chords on acoustic guitar building tension with guitar sound affects. A melodic motif on acoustic guitar builds up, joined by slide for the ending. Tense, sombre and dramatic, anticipation builds throughout, like the lead-up to a duel in a Western movie. Perfect for a documentary or Film/TV sequence. You can almost hear the crunch of gravel underfoot and the glint of desert sun on spurs.

I Still Carry A Torch for You

Sentimental country slide guitar track. Emotional electric guitar, gentle slide guitar, easy-going piano and lyrical violin with soft drums. Nostalgic, warm and soothing, suitable for a comforting advert for wholesome American-style goods, or as background music evoking the good ol’ days when times were bad.

I Gave You the World (Suite)

Blues guitar number. Wailing electric blues guitar, laid back slide guitar, classic blues guitar chord progression, walking bass line and gentle easy-going drums. Electric organ ads extra flavour. Plodding, steady, cool, calm and a bit cocky, self-assured blues rock for an American-style advert for some BBQ meat flavouring or for some Film/TV Americana.

Bed version available with No Lead Guitar.

Desert Robes

Exotic dub track. Bubbling dub bass guitar lurches around like a ghost from Scooby Doo, wistful piano, surfy slide-style electric guitar, mysterious, exotic brass and reverb-laden electric guitar and drums all plod purposefully and carefully across the track. Saxophone solos smoothly, then duets, twangy electric guitar plays Tinariwen, desert rock-style, all in to finish. Thoughtful, exotic, mysterious and suspenseful, would suit a quiet Film/TV scene set in an intriguing, new place, our character immersed in a new and curious world.

All In The Family

Country-style violin-led track. Walking bass, drums, gently strummed guitar and a jaunty fiddle melody. Energetic electric slide guitar solo introduced in new section. Fiddle rejoins and plays a countermelody. Laid-back and happy, reminiscent of Spongebob Squarepants’ underwater backwater, perfect for a kitsch ode to the old country on Film/TV or a jokey advert.

Requiem for L Lawson

Live instrumental acoustic guitar saga. Raw blues/folk acoustic guitar melody, repetitive melodic motifs. Lyrical mid-section to a more tense, frantic part, alternating between drama and calm moments. End section is like something out of a Western film, tense and sparse, with dramatic slide guitar, to a hopeful finger-picking final section. Sombre, dramatic and epic with moments of light, the nature of the live recording adding interesting imperfections. Different sections would suit various Film/TV/Documentary moments, would suit an American road trip or a nature documentary explore the American Wild West.

Country Code (Suite)

Country music instrumental. Interweaving acoustic guitars, ramshackle drums, slide guitar, harmonica and a whistling effect all get down together at the county fair. A solid plodding bass line, à la Johnny Cash’s ‘Walk The Line’, keeps this topsy-turvy show on the road. Relaxed and jolly, this rollicking tune would suit adverts for a fun-for-all-the-family product, or a TV/Film country-livin’ pastiche.

1 minute ad length version also available.

Take A Stand

Country instrumental with slide guitar. Confident slide guitar accompanied by steady drums, bass and acoustic guitar to start. Honky tonk rhythm introduced on electric guitar, adds texture. Country-style violin solos over the groove. The slide re-enters accompanied by choppy violin. Upbeat, charming and fun, perfect retro, line-dancin’ country music for TV sequences and family adverts.

Tell Me Now Darlin’

Country violin instrumental with piano. Violin, oom-pah bass and drums and tinkling piano to start. Slide guitar introduced for a solo. Wistful violin returns. Sentimental, warm and wholly nostalgic, harking back to a bygone time, would suit an advert that’s keepin’ it country, or a TV/Film moment of cheesy reverie.

Silver Moon

Violin-led country-folk instrumental. Folky violin melody with occasional harmonies soars over wistful slide guitar, gentle electric guitar, double bass and steady drums. Warm, fuzzy and sentimental, perfect for a slightly cheesy, Waltons-style, wholesome American TV show or nostalgic advert.
