The Way It Works…

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

On my way home a couple of weeks ago I heard a song on the radio that I’d heard a zillion times before, but this time it struck me in a new way and I thought, what if we slowed it down into a bit of a groove, a little more r&b…?

The next night I took it to the fellas at rehearsal and we played around with it for a while.  The following week, Stevie B says, “I woke up with this bass line in my head for that song,” and suddenly the tune came alive.

In the same way that our arrangements of “All or Nothing at All” and “Sway” came about, it starts with an idea for something different, someone says, “What if we …?” then we play, play, play until it’s right – when it grooves, melts, gives me goose bumps…

So what’s our new tune that I’m so excited about?  You’ll have to come to our gig this Saturday to hear it – we think you’ll love it!
