“I’M PICKING UP...

This was a Thursday word/lyric challenge by Brent for writing off a title given. He gave us (that wanted to play this today) the title "I'm Picking Up A New Old Habit" and so I thought I would maybe do a verse. Then a bridge. Then a chorus, oh heck I wrote the song lyrically. Then I just couldn't resist, and I put it to music. Then I couldn't resist making a guitar/vocal of it so here it is.

There is very little re-write here so it's really naked and if I wanted to do so, I would take a few days of re-write, give it a rest, and re-write. But I actually like it and it would be fun to record and really give it an energy shot as it fits my voice easily.

Whatever Will Be

Hi there! Whatever Will Be is song (and a co-write) that came to life during a songwriting retreat in Pidgeon Forge, TN. The assignment was to write something that could be featured in a movie. No other context was given. Storyline: woman reflects on her life, getting a notion (through observations) that her life is about to change. She doesn't know what's ahead of her, if it'll be good or bad, but that's alright: "Whatever will be will be". At the moment, we're revising the lyrics to see if we can make them more coherent. Best, Martin

“I’m Still Alive”

I wrote this song some years ago and did the recording in my home studio. I have always liked the lyrical story line as it talks of a devastating end to a relationship. With that known, he/she has to pick himself/herself up, break the chains of loneliness, stand up again and live a positive life nevertheless.

“OTTO WARMBIER DIED TODAY”

Written and produced and performed by me. American student Otto Warmbier died today after suffering at the hands of his North Korean captors for 17 months. I was outraged and as a songwriter I felt I would write and produce this song for his family and Americans in general.

Hearts Wide Open

"Hearts Wide Open" was a Christian Music Category Winner:
First Place - 2016 Dallas Songwriters Association
Third Place - The Songwriters Association of Washington's 33rd Mid-Atlantic Song Contest 2016
Finalist - 18th Annual Great American Song Contest 2016

This is a demo track I recorded at Nothing But Noise studio, with backup vocals by Lexi Jackson (of Wild the Waters) and Matt Davis (of Thunder Buddies), and some nice guitar licks from Matt.

It's still unmastered, but hopefully is listenable enough to get feedback.

For those of your who are interested in a Biblical connection, here it is:

Matthew 22 New International Version (NIV)

The Parable of the Wedding Banquet
22 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: 2 “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. 3 He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come.

4 “Then he sent some more servants and said, ‘Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.’

5 “But they paid no attention and went off—one to his field, another to his business. 6 The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. 7 The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city.

8 “Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. 9 So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’ 10 So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, the bad as well as the good, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.

‘AS FOR ME AND...

I wrote the words and music here on this song. "As For Me And My House" it is a passage from the Bible that my wife had a decorative item in our house and I thought I would use that for the song. Turns out other writers have also used this passage and title, though as is the case, I like my song best! It is just an upbeat, nice message of a song that would be for the contemporary Christian market.

I did the production right in my home with me on the vocals and playing the instrumentation. I was fairly happy with the result.

Here’s what songwriters are saying...

Frettie gives me the potential for cross-culture collaboration. A songwriter in Columbus, Ohio collaborating with a songwriter in New Dehli is something truly unique to the global songwriting community.
