When I Run

Jazz-pop instrumental. Drum roll, Rhodes piano intro, then a punchy brass riff. Steady drum and keyboard groove before the riff returns. Trumpet solo. Laid back, upbeat and positive, like a slightly cheesy theme tune to a jolly American sitcom.

Pride and Joy

Violin and guitar led country instrumental. Electric guitar, drums and a country-style violin melody kick off, joined by slide guitar. Strong, rugged violin and effortless slide guitar mingle over the groove. Easy-going, upbeat and fun, with a slight emotional edge, would suit an American-style down-home food or drink advert, or an advert for a country-themed event promising a darn-tootin’ good time.

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.

The Old Tree Swing

Lyrical solo piano track. Gentle undulating piano arpeggios with bright, hopeful piano melody above. Introspective, quiet, melancholy moment, brightening to the original melody. Peaceful, thoughtful, searching and nostalgic, a piano journey through idyllic American countryside, watching from the car window, memories flooding in as the patchwork fields flicker by.

60 secs and 30 secs ad length versions available.

First Light

Sentimental acoustic guitar track. Ever-shifting broken chord progressions on warm acoustic guitar. Rich and golden, sparse but full, intimate yet expansive, suitable for both epic TV/Film/advert moments as our gaze sweeps over a vast landscape, and moments of soul-searching and resolve.

Red Tail Reel

English folk revival style guitar instrumental. Finger-picking guitar, bluegrass-style broken chords throughout. Guitar bass notes are used to ground the hypnotic broken chord motifs, growing in intensity throughout. Wistful, pastoral and a bit 60s, would fit an intense film sequence, emotional decisions being made, set to a beautiful rural backdrop.

New Gap Ramble

A 60s American-style finger-picking bluegrass guitar piece. A warm full guitar sound. Simple major chords are embellished and augmented in a finger-picking style, like an American Richard Thompson. Full, round, warm, rich and hopeful, perfect for a title sequence, an ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’-style 60s film/tv show soundtrack or adverts for life-affirming, healthy products or services.

Raven Cliff Falls

Folky guitar and violin instrumental. Major broken acoustic guitar chords and subtle bass notes joined by a sentimental folk-style violin melody. Added guitar adds second melody line before a sustained final violin note. Relaxed, nostalgic, positive, warm and a bit retro, this easy-going melody would suit a long advert, tv shows depicting rural life or an American film set on a vast, beautiful landscape.

Revel in the Flame (Suite)

An uplifting love song with or without vocals. Acoustic guitar and kick drum punch out a rhythmic start, building anticipation. We ease into the song, verse then chorus, then verse with added piano and drums followed by more powerful, rousing chorus. The break maintains this intensity before it’s taken down a notch for one chorus before bursting into a heady but tender finale. Inspiring, positive, romantic, and full of breathless excitement, this emotional grower would suit earnest, all-American films or TV dramas. Our characters, finally reunited, having been kept apart by a series of misunderstandings, decide “Let’s just kick it off…” and embrace love.

The instrumental version is an inspiring guitar and piano build, perfect for rousing, feel-good adverts.
