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.

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.

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.

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.
