Unfinished Lyrics by Geoffrey Dicker
A few years ago, I teased the existence of a new book entitled “Unfinished Lyrics.” My fans have been asking me “WHEN?” ever since. Well, my darlings, the wait is almost over, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patience. At the time, I shifted gears away from my own art to write about my adventures in the art and music worlds. If you read this site, you know there are very few life changing experiences I’ve not had in those realms. I’ve experienced the good, the awesome, the bad and the nasty. Rather than be like everyone else, which to me is a fate worse than death, I’m going to continue to grow and challenge myself as I focus on a series of new projects, the first of which is “Unfinished Lyrics.”
The book is a collection of lyric fragments (couplets, choruses and verses), song lyrics that have never been recorded in any way as well as songs that have been recorded primarily by the uber talented singers Jim Emmons and Jeremy Gloff.
What you may or may not know is that Jim Emmons and I have released 3 albums: “In The Absence of Red,” “Throwing Stars” and “So Strange” (shameless plug: all are available on iTunes) and the track “Manhunt” recorded by Jeremy Gloff was featured in the movie “Eating Out: The Lost Weekend.”
I pose the challenge to you, my dear readers, that when you read the words, if they make you feel like singing, DO IT! Let’s make a million bucks! Everyone else is doing it, so why not you and me?!
More details and samples to be released soon, so please watch this space.
Thanks again for all your love and support!

"Manhunt" written by Jeremy Gloff and Geoffrey Dicker. From the movie "Eating Out 5"
Sometimes my life is truly unbelievable. But luckily, I have proof of the amazing things that happen to me. Here’s the latest…
I recently wrote the lyrics for a song called “Manhunt.” I sent them off to singer/songwriter Jeremy Gloff who recorded the track (which is available on his latest album “This”). The song got selected to be featured in the film “Eating Out 5,” which has been making the festival circuit. It will be released on video later in 2012.
Special thanks to Jeremy for such an awesome collaboration and we will see you on the big and small screen!

This by Jeremy Gloff - Out May 9, 2011!
Jeremy Gloff is more than a musician. He’s a gay icon. The Florida-based pop star is back with his 17th album entitled “This” which will be released on May 9, 2011. In his career, he’s played pretty much every style of music you can think of and his tunes are often fast and catchy with grooves that’ll be stuck in your head long after the record is finished playing. “This” is a fun record lovingly dedicated to the non-virgins of the world.
It begins with the title track, a song that would not be out of place on the next Beyonce’ record! The record opens with the singer saying “My name is Jeremy Gloff, bitch!” Handclaps and co-lead vocals from Anye’ Cole let you know right off the bat this album is going to be a non-stop party. Next is “Outsiders,” an electro track that explains that it’s not so bad to be different than everyone else. Track 3 slows things down a bit with the song “Junkie Love,” a track about trading your body for sex. “Back and Forth” featuring MACAViTi picks up the pace again and the chorus is very catchy. “Short Fuse” is next and it’s my favorite song on the album. The chorus “Let’s fuck ’em all up / Let’s take ’em all down” is very anthemic and I know I’m looking forward to singing the words aloud.
The second half of the album begins with “Small City (featuring Shunda K),” and it’s a slower track discussing some of the best cities in the world to “do your thing.” New York lovingly gets a shout out as one of the best cities. “Intentional Victim” is next and it’s a mid-tempo song that is about being able to resist your lover even though he uses you. “Manhunt” is a song that is very close to my heart as I wrote the lyrics for it! Jeremy recorded a demo of this song some time ago and I was so honored that the track made the record. The song deals with wanting to have a night of fun, instead of looking for the one – but also encourages safe sex for these situations. “Never Grow Old,” the second to last track, is a mid-tempo song about preserving your youth. The album finishes with “World Won’t Do It,” and is an empowerment anthem that advises you to to take charge of your own life because the world won’t do it for you.
“This” by Jeremy Gloff will be released on Crunksnotdead Records on May 9th, 2011. It will be available on Amazon.com as well as iTunes. If you are in Tampa, Florida, see below for details on the album release party.
