In 2008, I collaborated with singer Jim Emmons on a project called “In The Absence of Red.” Working in the style of Elton John and Bernie Taupin, I wrote song lyrics with no melodies in mind and emailed my contributions to Jim. He then took the words and crafted R & B, Pop and Jazz songs around the words and before long, the 11 song album “In The Absence of Red” was born. We released the project on I-Tunes and it was more successful than we could have ever imagined.
We’ve continued to collaborate ever since and our second collection, “Throwing Stars” is out today on I-Tunes! The album features the slow jam “So In Love,” the funky as hell “In Time,” the rockin’ “Something” as well as “Pride,” which will surely become the anthem for a community that is finally starting to see equal rights. You can hear samples of all of these songs at Jim Emmons’ official website, so get to clickin’. We hope you enjoy listening to the album as much as we enjoyed making it.
