The Art of Dreaming

Atmospheric build with piano and orchestral strings. Sustained strings build anticipation, joined by a repeated piano phrase ringing out hopefully. Slow build to include prominent string swells and bubbling, dynamic electronics. Hopeful, inspiring and positive, like a more chilled Chariots of Fire, epic but without the climax. Would suit a decisive TV/Film moment or a slow-moving, heart-warming advert.

Sleepy Lullaby

Gentle piano and glockenspiel lullaby. Slow-paced, shifting broken piano chords accompanied by piano and glockenspiel softly playing a simple, childlike melody. Soothing, calming, loving and warm, would suit an advert for something that will safeguard your loved ones, allowing you to rest easy, or a sentimental TV show about cute kids or beloved pets.

‘Underscore’ version features gentle broken chords only, slightly 80s feel.

Laid-back sample-heavy 90s-influenced jazzy hip hop. Samples including male vocals, a crowd of chatting revellers, hand drums, tambourine over an alternating fat synth chord. Opens up to include a bassy synth line and extra warm sunshine synths and gentle piano notes. Breezy, cool and laid back, perfect summer music for a chilled out party vibe, maybe on a rooftop in Brooklyn with a bunch of your beautiful stylish friends.

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.

Listen to the Dialogue While I Do My Thing

Atmospheric synth instrumental. Layers of echoing synth. Fat, warm, 80s reverb-laden sound. Sombre orchestral string effect, chiming piano and glacial beats gives a serious, driving feeling. Intriguing, mysterious and strange, Twin Peaks-style ambience crossed with Enya and the Crimewatch theme tune, would suit a dark TV drama or as tension-building background music to an eye-opening documentary.

Airy Fairy

Intriguing mid-tempo electronic track. Shaker and hand drum-style percussion, twinkling electronics, bright, glassy synths and sustained atmospheric synth chords unfold and expand. Sustained synth grows in intensity, organ style synth chords chime out, cutting through the dreamscape. Dense, magical, ethereal and futuristic with hints of tension and discord. Feels like a voyage of discovery in a utopian future world, or a personal journey of realisation.

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.

All Alone (Suite)

Wistful lounge-jazz number. Yearning, saxophone, louche piano, gentle shuffling drums and calm, plodding double bass. Dreamy, nostalgic and romantic and relaxed, suitable for a retro TV/Film scene, a first dance between new lovers, or reminiscing on a first love, now a distant memory. A throw-back to the love stories of old black-and-white films.

Bed track has no sax, more subtle, calm and chilled.
