Don’t Miss The Bus -Piano/Vocal album
Just Released : Don’t Miss The Bus
– a piano / vocal album – Words & Music by P.Pascoe
This album is the first* Piano/vocal album in a planned series
of Piano/Vocal ‘Singer/Songwriter’ albums by Pete.
It feels great to be sharing these songs. Isn’t the digital age is amazing: when we can write, record, master and share music ourselves?!
I hope you enjoy these songs.
I’ll be releasing more soon.
About the album:
‘I wanted to share the songs with just piano and vocals (as if you were in a room, listening to me playing and singing) to clearly present the songs themselves – rather than with complicated musical arrangements, where songs can sometimes be lost.
Using just the piano as accompaniment allows me to play with dynamics: only a few quiet notes where I wanted to particularly draw attention to a lyric – or a fuller arrangement in sections to suggest a band or strings, etc.
When all’s said and done, I prefer some of my favourite artist’s live piano/vocal or guitar/vocal recordings, rather than the produced album cuts. Sometimes there’s just more emotion.
You’ll see the lyrics are sometimes autobiographical e.g ‘As Far As I Can Tell’
and some talk about a more global picture ‘Fair New Day‘.
I enjoy writing both sorts of songs – & at the end of the day, the interpretation is up to the listener.
I will record some of these songs again in the future with more instrumentation.
It’s great to be able to present them like this. I hope you enjoy these songs’.
Please feel free to get back to me with comments/ feedback-favourite songs, etc- I’d love to hear what you have to say
