From the Producer's Desk... Tim's Perspective...
The process to arrive at these finished songs usually happens 1 of 2 ways. Joy will bang out a demo with rough vocals on a Casio keyboard. Or she will gravitate towards some instrumental I had that is conducive to a vocal arrangement wise. The Casio demos are great because it leaves a lot open to interpretation. But there is also a lot of good information into what Joy is looking for. So I really try to hone in on that. Oddly enough... it's usually close to something I had done instrumentally that I can pull bits & pieces from.
This was a Joy Casio Demo. And amazingly matched something I had written years before. We fused them together then wrote a bridge. The vocal sessions are where the final parts are put together. Most of which we didn't know till we got there..
Another Casio Demo from Joy. This one was more elaborate and set the stage for what it would be. We wrote one additional section that became the intro and repeated Pieces section. This was the first song we released..
Let You GoLet You Go
Not so much a Joy Casio Demo...but an iPhone track from Garageband she had put together. This one had an interesting riff from an acoustic guitar patch that I wanted to retain. She had the verse and chorus. I liked the idea of using just those parts but using different instrumemts to create different sections. Mystery vocals appeared once again for this song in the vocal sessions. We really don't know everything till we arrive.
Life Rolls By
This was the song that started this whole Project. Joy found this song on my Soundcloud Profile after I followed her. She was intigued enough to want to sing on it. Being that it was just a guitar instrumental song in my mind... Joy had another idea. And this is it. Other songs soon followed..
Back to YesterdayBack to Yesterday
This was a demo I had almost as is... But not long after I sent this to Joy... she fired back a good rendition of the vocals. We discovered the rest in the vocal sessions. Those sessions are a really creative time for us and it's great to hear it come together that way.
Down the LineDown the Line
Another demo of mine that Joy gravitated towards. Ironically she had sent me the vocal ideas and I didn't acknowledge them right away. Then one night I came across the file and wondered why I wasn't working on this song! It's now one of my favorites. Except for the acoustic bridge... Joy's original vocal demo is much the same as the final.
New vocals for the bridge were discovered in the sessions.
