New song

Post by Alex.Rybeck »

Submitted for your approval:
A few years ago, L.A.-based singer/songwriter Todd Murray approached me with an original lyric titled "And I'm Leaving Today", and asked me if I might be interested in setting it to music. He said that in his head, he was hearing something along the lines of Burt Bacharach, and knowing what a big influence Burt has had on my music, Todd thought I might be the right guy for the job. The resulting song was later nominated for Best Song by The Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs (MAC Award), and Todd and I recorded it on his most recent CD, "Croon".
You can find this recording at, CDBaby, etc.
In addition, you can find a couple of "live" concert renditions on YouTube, one by Todd, the other sung by Marcus Simeone.
If you enjoy it, please let me know! Thanks for listening.
