I wanted to out a dirty little secret… Morning Rays music in a commercial that is running right now. It’s always a treat to create something and forget about it once it’s done. Which is essentially what I do with stuff I write for other people. Yes, I do create music beyond my CDs as much as I want to keep it a secret – it gets out.
Right now there’s a University called Capella University. They’re using a song I wrote called Morning Rays that is being distributed by APM. I happened to hanging out somewhere when all of a sudden I hear this melody that I co-wrote with Robert Navarro.
Here’s the video, as I had to go find it online since I’m a little vain in that respect…
Enjoy and let me know if you’ve caught this song in the commercial or have heard it somewhere else. I’ll feature you for informing me.
Two days ago I spotted a tweet about a piece of music. That particular tweet came from a fan of mine. One that runs a few online radio station types like Blip.fm. She goes under the moniker Jalapno. I’m thinking that’s supposed to represent Jalapeno the spicy pepper. The tweet I’m talking about mentioned a song I recorded last year with my buddy Robert Navarro. It’s about how Morning Rays brighten your days. Two fold there, with the sun coming up meaning the world is still here and if you have a special someone who puts a ray of sunshine in your day.
The song was written by me, but it was done for a library. Therefore I don’t own the rights to it for selling and licensing purposes. Though the more it gets around, eventually the better it is for me and for Robert.
As it stands, look no further than here to hear the song:
Since you’re here reading this post, I’m requesting that you share the post as well as share the video too. Heck, while you’re at it – head to the video page and share some of my other videos. Even better, I’d ask you to purchase my tunes, make a video like this, contact me for a license (it’s important to get as YouTube and other places will likely pull it if you don’t get a license from me) then share ’em on youtube, vimeo, or your favorite video site. I’d like to see where the music goes.
Have yourself a fantastic week and may Morning Rays brighten your days.
