Many moons ago I went for a walk with three chords repeating in my head and came back with a song…this became "Back To Old Street" and also kicked off the major writing phase for a “solo” album. Not much changed in the arrangement from the original Garageband demo but every person that played on the track added something special. Miles McPherson is on drums playing what we later dubbed the “George of the Jungle” beat, Chris Chaney on bass and Bruce Kulick on guitar duty. I found a Yamaha DX7 synth on Craigslist which found its way on the track in all of its analog-y, crackly goodness. My bandmate Adam Bialik from Brave Citizens is wailing on all the background vocals up in the stratosphere.
Once the song was completely recorded I sat down with the producer Jeremy Rubolino to listen back to what we had done over the many sessions. We began thinning out guitar and keyboard parts until we felt the quiet sections drew you in close and the big sections were flying out the speakers. I love how this one came out. Anyways, I’m happy to release it as the first single from the record…check it out on iTunes.
