My version of Ferlin Husky’s GONE

This EP is 3 songs. It’s my nod to Nashville because I live here in Nashville. Classic country songs meets my Classical roots with a whole lot of “SINATRA” style. ME!!! I also happen to love the songs and wanted to show what you could do with a country song like no one’s ever heard it before. Totally re-imagined and extremely unique.

Those involved in the making of this EP:

Fred Mollin – Producer (Johnny Mathis, Barbra Streisand, Billy Joel, Natalie Cole, Keith Urban, Vince Gill, Any Grant, Sheryl Crow, Daryl Hall, Miley Cryus, Alison Krause, Chris Cornell, Carole King Jimmy Webb, Dan Hill, Susan Boyle etc.)

Brad Cole – Arranger, piano, conductor
Phil Collins-Genesis keyboardist for 25 years.

Gordon Goodwin – Orchestrator
Multiple grammy winner, The Incredibles, Armageddon, National Treasure, Remember the Titans, Star Trek Nemesis, Con Air, Gone in 60 Seconds etc…. Also his BIG PHAT BAND which just won a Grammy this past year and nominated in 5 categories this year.

There’s A LOT going on sonically here depicted within the orchestra. My idea was that I wanted the orchestra to enjoy playing it as much as I liked singing it and not just behind me playing 1,3′s & 5′s being bored. A partner if you will adding to the drama of the words much like that of a lieder recital with a singer and pianist.

Hope you enjoy!
