"The Girl's Got It Goin' On" - Newest Original : )

Hey Everyone, Just thought I'd share my latest original song with anyone who cares to have a listen. This was my first time experimenting with using harmonies/backing vocals in one of my songs. So that was pretty fun...especially since it's me who's backing me up, ha. As far as the arrangement goes ...

"Sounds of Her Smile" (original composition)

Hey Everyone, Any song that I write and feel proud of...I like to share it with you. Because any song that I write...Burt is a big reason why I wrote it in the first place. Here's one that I composed last December. I'd totally forgotten about until I stumbled upon it while going through my musical p...

Re: R.I.P. ... Vincent Cole

Ron, Thank you for sharing this information with us. I had no clue. It's been a long time since I've been on the forum and I only just spoke with Vincent back in April or May of this year. He was in such good spirits, too. While it's so sad to know that Vincent has passed away...it's so lovely to se...

New Cover of "The Balance of Nature"

Hey Everyone, Here I am performing one of my favorite songs by Burt and Hal with Jennie Cruse. I'd previously recorded a version on my own and put it on YouTube. She then took my version and added her voice to it. I like the result...even with the not so great audio : ) https://www.youtube.com/watch...

To Be With You (original instrumental)

Hey Everyone, If you have about four minutes to spare...I'd appreciate you having a listen to this instrumental that I've recently completed. I started writing the main melody back in April of this year and finally finished the rest of it back in October. The sound levels are still needing to be pro...

NEW ORIGINAL SONG WRITTEN BY TWO BIG FANS OF BURT!!!

Hey Everyone, It's been a while, but, I'm back with a new song that was written by myself and a lady named, Jennie Cruse. She was the lucky one who got invited to sit next to Burt at his piano while he performed "Close to You" during the Auckland show back in November of 2015. This was pre...
