MP3 EACH - Light Songs
Upbeat Acoustic Rock with Beatlesque vocals ala Rubber Soul
11 MP3 Songs
ROCK: Progressive Rock, ROCK: Modern Rock
Songwriting is influenced by the time and environment in which the songwriter lives. The end result can surprise the songwriter more than anyone else. One sets out intending to explore a certain area of music when suddenly the songs take on a life and direction of their own and the project veers onto a new path.
LightSongs was born from such a course change.
A few years before this, EACH played electric rock live, integrating electric songs of their own design into the mix. The formula path for bands at the time was to play live as much as possible, cut a demo song or LP, then have it shopped to the major record labels.
Songwriting began with a plan to record an album. The expectation was that the result would be electric rock. After intensive writing sessions and the dust had cleared, the project turned out to be more acoustic-rock.
Between live gigs they rehearsed the new songs and planned a recording budget. They knew studio time was expensive--they had to make every moment in the studio count to get the album done. They mapped out the recording booking down to a fine detail. Everything was planned meticulously to get the biggest bang out of the budget--and bring in a quality album.
When EACH entered Studio In The Country (a major commercial recording facility) to record LightSongs, the trio were very well rehearsed--every guitar string new, every drum head tuned, all variables planned and accounted for.
The recording process began, they burned for three straight days--totally focused on the task at hand--intent on completing the album in time.
On the fourth day they mixed.
The money clock was winding down to the final moments as the finished master mix tape copies were run off.
Fate had wrought an ironic twist no one involved had counted on. The electric rock band had come out of the studio with an upbeat, Beatlesque harmony-filled acoustic rock album of love songs. Everyone joked in the studio they had just finished their "Rubber Soul".
LightSongs brings a historical closure for EACH.
Recently there was a debate on whether or not to release the album because it was very different from the more electric "The North Border Sessions". It is rather an "aspect" of their musical "personality" at that time.
After much consideration it was decided to leave it to intelligent listeners at large and added to the EACH discography.
LightSongs became an "official" beginning to a musical quest that continues.
