Description
In my Bio I mentioned that I was part of a duet for a time and I thought it might be nice to post another sample of our work. The duet was called Scott & Walker and included a young man Named Brian Scott and yours truly. I took the stage name of Walker because my last name can be hard for some people to pronounce, and it seemed to flow better when trying to introduce ourselves to new venues.

So reaching back into the past I've brought you the dynamic duo of Scott & Walker. I hope you enjoy the show, and thanks for listening.

Brian Scott Brought me a rough draft of this song and together we finished writing the lyrics on it and then proceeded to work out an arrangement on it.

Brian Scott - Vocals & Piano

Break Out and Cry

Verse 1

Well I woke up this mornin' at the break of dawn

My heart was broken, I knew you done me wrong.

Why you up and left me , I don't know.

I guess sometimes that's just the way it goes.

Chorus

Cause the passion, has died

And the heartache, is killing me inside

You never, really tried

I'm gonna sit right down, break out and cry


Instrumental bridge



Verse 2

Are you satisfied, what you done.

You keep walkin' around, thinkin' you're number one

But one of these days you're gonna cry

Then you're gonna ask yourself why.


Chorus 2

Cause the passion, has died

And the heartache, will be killing me inside

You never, really tried

You're gonna sit right down, break out and cry


Chorus 3

Yes the passion, has died

And the heartache, is killin' me inside

And you never, even tried

I'm gonna sit right down break out and cry.

Thanks Feter
How do you do it Feter. How is it that almost always you are the first to post when I put up a new song. You are amazing my friend.

I drug this one out of the archives and dusted it off just to see what kind of reaction it got. We had a pretty fair act going for a while and then we had to go our separate way for personal reason. Brian was a very talented singer and I was mentoring him and helping him learn to write better songs after I first met him. We developed a friendship and then decided to play a little music for a time. Had a great time, and made a little money to boot. Win, win situation if you ask me.

Thanks again for the kind words Feter, they are always appreciated.

Be well

oh this is cool. great vocals. the instrumental is great cuz it's not completely typical to country gives it a different sound. i often say the radio no longer plays country because everyone tries to hard to be country, but this feels honest and real like hank nice song.

Thanks Chance
Thanks for dropping in and listening Chance, I'm really glad you liked the song.

I tend to agree with what you say about most of the Country music you hear on the radio these days. It seems like they are trying to sound like the last great hit. I like to call them "Cookie cutter songs". Don't get me wrong there are some very good Country songs out, but it seems the great ones are the ones who don't try to sound like they are "Country" They just tell a story you might really be interested in hearing, and they do it in an interesting musical way.

Anyway, thanks again for your kind words Chance, they are appreciated. Be well my friend.

sloparts said 3505 days ago (April 20th, 2008)
It's the cookie cutter mentality
of the record companies executives. To them it's all about the business and nothing about the art. If they can't figure a way to sell it, they're not interested. So most of the time, like everyone else, they take the path of least resistance and just redo what they've already sold.

Don't get me wrong, the "Business" side of music is all about making money, and they manage to do that very well. But you'd think that maybe they'd get it once in a while. People don't want to hear the same thing all the time, they want music that makes them think, or feel, or at the least react in some way other than with their wallet.

Oh well, such is the life of a musician.

Take care Chance, good talking to you.

Glad you enjoyed the show. We worked hard to give this song some energy, and I think we made it. Plus it was a hoot doing it.

Thanks again for the kind words.

I don't know for sure,
but I'll take a look in the old dust bin and see if I can find a few more. I've got a couple I'm working on now, some old and some completely new, but they're not ready for prime time yet.

When I get something new I'll drop you a line. In the meantime, thanks for the kind words my friend.

Be well and keep on playing. That's the way you'll make it into the Albery Hall don't you know, Practice, practice, practice.

Real Solid, Ed
Like this one a lot. Kind of an old school country song with a tip of the hat to Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly.... you know, I could actually hear Elvis singing this.

Very nice professional job all around!

sloparts said 3505 days ago (April 20th, 2008)
Not any more you can't,
I mean Elvis singing it that is. But to tell the truth, Brian was a real Elvis fan, and he also loved Buddy Holly. So this was a song we co-wrote that was tailored towards that genre of artists because of his love for that Rock-a-Billy type of sound.

Anyway, thank you for the kind words Adam, I'm really glad you liked the song and were kind enough to tell me so.

Be well my friend

Thanks Maurice
I agree with what you said about Brian's voice. He is a natural born singer and could go far in the business. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get him to really apply himself. I kept telling him that success in the music business is 10% talent and 90% hard work. I guess he never did believe me, so we went our separate ways after about 2 years of working together. Still, he's was a nice young man, and I wish him well.

Thanks again for the listen and the kind words Maurice, it is appreciated.

Be well my friend

Collab Re-Do!
I heard elvis singing too - like aclarke said! This may be overstepping, but I'd love to see this redone. First I should say I think it's a great tune and well produced. The "but" is that I'd love to get the sequencer-induced lounge feel out and set the sound in something more akin to a smoky dive - the kind of dive with chicken wire in front of the stage and tomatoes rotting on it.

If you want to chat about this, give me a terrestrial jingle. And if you want to kill me, you can do the same! I XOXOX yer stuff, you know that. So I've taken a calculated liberty here.

sloparts said 3504 days ago (April 21st, 2008)
Thanks Bob
Ya know, I was thinking the other day about how this would sound redone, but I'm not sure I can give it the proper vocal. I have no idea where Brian is, I lost touch with him when he move to Arizona somewhere in the late 90's, so we may have to find a singer that can do it convincingly.

It might be fun to give it a try one of these days, but we'd have to do the whole thing over from scratch. That's doable but it would take some time. My chops aren't what they used to be on any of the instruments I can play.

I'll try to give you a call over the weekend and we'll see what happens.


Be well my friend and thanks for the kind words and the offer. I might just take you up on that one.

Be cool

I'm game!
I'm lookin forward to that call! I'm very glad my comment didn't strike you as overly critical or conceited (as in "this is what you need... ME on your tune!). From our memos since I'm happy to know you didn't take it that way. IF it works out, I'd be honored to play ANY part on a collab with you (as long as it's a guitar part, it's all I know!) You rock, country, blues and rock man.

Hey! This rocks along nicely Ed. Really sung well too. (Elvis-tinged vocals!) The whole thing sounds truly pro!

A thoroughly enjoyable blast from the past!

Be well friend!
sloparts said 3502 days ago (April 23rd, 2008)
Thanks Micheal
When I met Brian, (the singer on this song) he was a 17 year old high school kid wanting me to help him do a recording of one of his songs for his senior project.

I recognized right away he had a lot of talent so I took him under my wing and helped him to rewrite his songs over as complete songs instead of just the song snippets he came to me with. It seems most beginning song writers have the habit of writing a verse and a chorus, and calling it a song. I had this same problem too when I began to try to write songs, and somebody taught me the right way. So me helping him was just passing on what I'd been given.

I also started mentoring him on his singing and playing style to help him learn a little more about song dynamics and what it takes to make a song interesting from beginning to end. We got along great and finally started doing a duet act around the Portland, OR area in local clubs, Fairs, and other venues.

This kid has such a natural quality in his voice that really comes through on tape. There were times I was totally amazed when I listened back to his vocals. He's singing one of the songs we co-wrote while working on his senior project. He is also a fair piano player and played most of the piano parts on the songs we recorded, and the songs in our act. I did all the other playing of background tracks on this song as well as the harmony parts

Now you know the rest of the story. Thanks again for four kind words Micheal. Be well my friend.

Thanks Yeman
Every once in a while I'll go looking into my old studio section on the computer to see if there's anything else in there I can drag out, polish up, and post to the site. Occasionally I find one I missed during the first flush of posting that has some potential, and when I do I'll clean it up a litle and load it up here.

It's nice to see some of these old ones receive a good reaction from all of the wonderful people here on MacJams. Helps me keep trying to reinvent myself as it were.

Thanks again Yeman, and be well my friend.

Hey there Joe
Thanks for coming by to listen, and for the kind words about the song.

I had to transcribe the lyric off of the song and I hadn't done it yet. But by golly, ask and ye shall receive my friend. I guess I was being a little lazy, but I got over it.

Thanks again for the comments Joe. Always a pleasure to see you come over.

Be well and stay that way my friend

There's more than one side to this old Country/City boy.
This was a fun song to do back when we did it and I thought it turned out rather well, considering I was a relative newbie to the studio environment at the time.

Glad you found something about it to like my friend and for the kind words.

Be well

Yeah, Scott & Walker, that was us. We actually worked really well together as far as the music was concerned. It's too bad we had to give it up, but such is life.
