Submit Question
 
Q: Do you plan to release any new material
A: Absolutely! I just recorded 2 new tunes "When Nobody Cares" & the "Faith Medley" while in Nigeria. I was so impressed with the Producer Oluremi Iyilade that I am importing him to the States to run my Love Story Recording Studio Where we will be able to turn out an unlimited amount of original material. As a songwriter I have been blessed to be able to create a life time of beautiful intellectual property. But I am very picky about the Producers/Musicians with whom I work. To get the sounds I hear in my head requires a symbiotic relationship with a Musician that "FEELS" me and gives me precisely what I am asking for... remaining true to the original melody. Smokey Robinson once told me that all it takes to create a classic hit song is a beautiful melody & memorable lyrics to which folks can relate. A beautiful song can be arranged in any genre & performed by anyone and remain a recognizable Hit. But it is imperative to maintain the integrity of the melody when it is first introduced. Therein lies the problem in working with most musicians that just don't get it. Immediately they will try to arrange what I am singing into their preferred genre instead of simply chording out the song as it is sang. This is frustrating and jacks up my system of song creation as they try to make it their own. Too many musicians have little respect for singer/songwriters. They refuse to accept the fact that the SONG existed before they put their musical instrument to it. Negating the fact that the VOICE is the first original instrument. Any musician worth his/her salt can play a a great SONG but not all can write it. Hence I pay a musician to play the melody as instructed. Then I layer in the musical arrangement step by step until I am satisfied with what I hear. Once the ORIGINAL song is done I am only to happy to hear other renditions of MY SONG as performed by others. Just give me Songwriting Credit for the Original. So in answer to your question regarding releasing
