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

Postby BB4LIFE » Sun May 07, 2017 5:11 am

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 pretty fun and a little challenging to do since she's in New Zealand and I'm in the US, ha. It's amazing what we're capable of these days with technology. Anyway...I'm very proud of our song and hope some of you might have a listen and quite possibly enjoy it.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and hope you like the tune : )

Take Care,

Layne

Thank you, Blue. Glad you enjoyed it. Anything we do in the future we'll most likely post in the forum.

Thanks again,

Layne

Bonjour Layne;

It’s wonderful you have collaborated with Jennie Cruse on a song!

Have you found your ‘Hal David’?

Looking for more from you 2 in the future! I spoke with Jennie by phone last year, when she was in the States to see Burt. Too bad Burt had to cancel his tour dates due to an injury. From our conversation this past Sunday, she has booked all 4 dates in Seattle July 13-17, 2017 @ the Jazz Alley!

Take care mon ami!

Hi Vincent,

Thanks for the response and yes...I hope Jennie and myself can write more tunes together as well. I definitely found a great writing partner in her for sure : )

Take care,

Layne

..... Keep up the good work! .... Someday we'll be able to say: " we were aware of what Layne was doing well before you ever heard of him!"

Hi Djalma and Ron...thank you very much for the very kind comments. I appreciate it and I'm pleased that you enjoyed the song. Sorry I'm just now responding. I didn't see any notifications that my post received anymore comments. I just happened to have checked the website today and saw that you two left me something. But once again...thank you so much for your continued support and encouragement. I'll keep at it : )

Hope all is well for the both of you.

Take care,

Layne

If you had a good engineer you would really be onto something. This really captures that late 60's/early 70's Burt vibe.

Geoff,

Thanks for the compliment. I'm going to record this with an engineer sometime soon. So hopefully it'll sound much better. Thanks for having a listen. Glad you enjoyed it.

Take care,

Layne
