Piano Instrumental Music, Sample Flip, RnB Hip Hop

I made this track with a sample from Pat Metheny. I love his music! So, I just wanted to see if I could even turn the sample into something with my signature sound. All I can say is, "WOW!" Yes, I'm often surprised at the end result of my experiments! This one is a little bit faster with the tempo, but it still has a nice groove. This is a good one for you work out routine. I named the track "Soul On Ice" after the book by Eldridge Cleaver. The book was sitting next to my monitor at the time I was making the track. Plus, I thought the title was a fitting reminder of the transformation I experienced, similar to Mr. Cleaver's.

A New Day

Piano Instrumental Music, Sample Flip, RnB Hip Hop

Watching the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States, I was moved by the scene in Washington, DC, on The Mall and the US Capitol grounds. The words "A New Day" came to my mind as I watched the people standing, waiting in the cold to hear their President...Our President, Barack Obama.

Here's a track you can groove to in celebration of our new President, President Obama, and "A New Day" in the history of our country.

Where are you located? Also what would it take for you to produce some tracks for an urban hip hop gospel album?

Deena - na

Dear Taurus,
I was searching on the internet to find out how I can possibly learn how to compose music. I write alot of lyrics but have the slightest clue on how to create music for them. Anyway I came across your website in the search engine and after listening to all, I mean every instrumental on here, I just had to tell you WOW!!! Your music is so heartfelt. Absolutely beautiful. And I must say very inspiring!!. Hopefully someday I can find a way to let myself be heard through music. Good Luck in all you do.

Sincerely Deena
