I created this song a couple of weeks ago but wanted to redo the vocals but then I forgot about it completely until I came across it by accident today. I did redo the vocals but it was hard for me to choose which one to upload! This song hits the spot for me today even more than it did the night I did it the first time.

The VIs I'm using in this track include Celtic Harp, Japanese Shakuhachi Flute, Upright Jazz Bass and the effect on my voice is Epic Diva. All of the music was improvised track by track and then so was the original vocal line and so were the words. I haven't changed the words but I did change the vocal line a bit when I resang it.

Words and Music/Vocals: Carla J. Patterson
Artwork: Carla Cryptic

This is lovely - soft smokey vocal in an interesting key (minor?), and gorgeous strings. This should be sung around a camp fire at a world music festival late at night....

Cool Ultra-V, thanks! This song soothes me right on down, no matter what's going on. I always have to do a song or two that accomplishes that on a regular basis. smiley

Very soulful, smooth & "sultry" as someone else said. Excellent lyrics, music and artwork. Looks like Prince a little bit. I love Prince!!! This one def hits all the "right spots" for my to Carla. Great song!!!

Thanks A1! Lots of people tell me that looks like Prince lol... it's from a photo I took of myself but where I only took the highlights and turned it into a carving (I carve 'rubber' stamps). Anyway, I should send it to Prince 'cause almost everyone who sees the stamp thinks I did it of Prince! Luckily I love the guy, too. smiley
