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

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.

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.

Nothing Matters But The Joy

An upbeat, but relaxed, steady jazz jam on piano, guitar, double bass and drums. Jazz piano to start, joined by double bass and cymbal rattles. Electric guitar takes the melody with piano chord progressions underneath. Guitar solos, with drums and bass intensifying before dropping out, leaving the piano to take an intimate solo turn. All return to the original melody, keeping things sweet, with guitar gently improvising. Happy, hopeful, fun, safe and wholesome. The opening credits of a film set on the East Coast of the US, driving home over crunchy Autumn leaves, met by a happy dog at the door. Safe and warm in wholesome America. Or it could be New York in the 80s of goofy feelgood American comedy .Three Men and A Baby without the drama.

Hill Billy

A guitar- and piano-led surf/blues stomper. A guitar riff with accompanying drums introduces a steady blues riff, soon joined by some Spongebob Squarepants-style slide guitar, bringing a surf vibe. The riff loops underneath bluesy piano trills. Piano and slide guitar come to the fore with a short electric guitar solo on top. All instruments confidently stride toward a traditional blues ending. Carefree, country, laid-back and cool. Distinctly American, evoking the wild west, both the saloons and the seaside. A laid-back track that brings unmistakeable stateside charm to adverts or on film.
