Songs for You From Home

FacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I’ve been posting phone videos on my FB page to entertain everybody at home. Although I wish the circumstances were different, the current climate has provided me and other musicians with a more captive/appreciative audience. Life is messy, with the good and bad getting mixed together. I hope the videos I’m posting are helping out with the good side of things. Below are two new songs ‘Song for the Dreamers (Same Road)’,  ‘No Motive That Isn’t Pure’ and a cover of Sittin’ On (The Dock Of The Bay).

Hope you enjoy.

 

Lyrics –

Here’s a song for the dreamers
Whose dreams were never sung
Here’s a song for the ones
Whose lives have just begun

Life death love and regret
It’s the same road – we’re all walking on/down
Stop – breathe take a look around

Here’s a way to begin
For the ones who lost their way
Here’s a start for the ones
Who took their very first step today

Life death love and regret
It’s the same road – we’re all walking on/down
Stop – breathe take a look around

Here’s a song for the ones
Whose hearts were left alone
Here’s a song for the ones
Whose love has just begun to grow

Life death love and regret
It’s the same road – we’re all walking on/down
Stop – breathe take a look around…

Do you hear the sound?
One heart beating loud.

Lyrics:

I don’t believe in much
I’ve said it before
I’ll say it again
Don’t come knocking at my door

Opportunists find gold
In the fear they’ve sold
Runs like a fire
Wasn’t anybody told?

How I want to turn you on
Feed you the love that comes from the one and only place
In our hearts – no motive that isn’t pure

She came up like a flame
Burning with a fever
When the fever broke
That didn’t make her a believer

She had a good heart
And she had a good mind
There was never a lover
That could tell her a lie

How I want to turn you on
Feed you the love that comes from the one and only place
In our hearts – no motive that isn’t pure

It’s hard to be wrong
Easy to be right
When your looking through a glass
That colors all your light

You want to feel safe
We all want to belong
But at what price do we say
Enough is a enough

How I want to turn you on
Feed you the love that comes from the one and only place
In our hearts – no motive that isn’t pure

Special January 26th Concert – Building Community through Ears, Eyes, Hearts and Stomachs

FacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I’m looking forward to my concert this Saturday – January 26th at The Arts Center of the Capital Region. My goal is to bring people together in an intimate theater space where we can all connect in the stories of the songs I’ve written. It’s a way to build community through laughter, common-ground and a break from the grind. Stories are what carry and inform us from generation to generation and art/music serves as a worthy vehicle for those stories.

In this spirit, I will be performing a 50 minute opening set from 8-8:50 PM and then there will be an extended intermission for the audience to mingle/network -make new friends. There will be tasty food on-hand from DeFazio’s Pizzeria, Cookies, Veggies, Coffee, Juice and a cash bar for wine and beer. Food and soft drinks are included in the $20 ticket cost.

The stage center-piece will showcase local artist Becca Giel’s painting, ‘Torrential’ selling for $1,800. To see more of Becca Giel’s work online, – please follow/click this link. /

Here is Becca’s Artist Statement

My work is inspired by my study of psychology, spirituality, nature and biology, working parallel to my own internal studies. In this way each piece is a self-portrait and a thesis that describes a state of being, state of emotion or state of transcendence through the mediums of color and movement. They are the dialogue between instinct and free willed intention. They represent the indescribable experience of the human animal.

It is the language of discovery, sentience and soul. I am inspired by the work of Joan Micthell (artist), Francine Shapiro (Doctor of Psychology), and Anodea Judith ( Author and Therapist).

I truly hope that this concert satisfy’s everybody’s -ears, eyes, hearts, and stomachs 🙂
Cheers!
Maurizio Russomanno
