Shannon

Written by Jeff Scott Gray and co-written by Shannon herself,  this sultry, soulful, reflective anthem reminds you of Alana Myles Black Velvet.

“Adding a subtle lament and youthful exuberance to move on was quite intentional” said Jeff Scott Gray when asked about their approach to this new song:

Shannon and I were quite deliberate in wanting her second song to be about relationships and the human condition.  It is not autobiographical. When you listen to the lyrics you will see that we had a real life pattern that we wanted to emulate. Hope. Then disappointment leading to becoming reflective and learning then finally growing and resolving to move on and be strong and be the better for it having happened. Her first song, A little Take a Little Give was a joyful rendition of discovering something new and was quite innocent. We plan on writing lots of music and we are very mindful of taking the listener on a journey with us.” 

Jeff Scott Gray

Recorded at The Magic Brew Music Studio , I Always Hoped was engineered and produced by Jeff Scott Gray.  Jeff also plays all instruments on the track and sequenced the drums. Shannon Rachel Rafuse co-wrote the lyrics and made the melody pop like she always does.

She sings all vocals!

We hope you all enjoy and share!

PJ MILES new single almost here!

file-page1

PJ MILES was in the Magic Brew Music Studio last night with Mark MacDonald of Nowhere Road and Jeff Scott Gray finishing the basic drum track for his upcoming single, “Take the Wheel and Ride”

“PJ Miles’s follow-up single to “I Ride” is even more impactful and catchy if that’s possible! It has been fun watching as Phil developed this tune bringing new ideas to the session and jamming with Mark MacDonald and I. I think it is resulting in a great live feel and I can’t wait to finish producing the suckah for him!”

Jeff Scott Gray

Phil and Mark also laid down a foundation guitar and bass guitar track that will serve as the template for the rest of the palate to be complete.As I stated in the video I posted you can really tell these two play in a band together…they gel so well and Mark is such a great Bass player with excellent skill and feel.

Mark MacDonald-Bass Player Nowhere Road

PJ, Mark and Jeff will be back at it this Saturday afternoon and I suspect we will have 90% of the organic stuff (guitars, bass and vocals) complete. Mastering will begin early next week targeting a late week release.

Between now and Saturday when the boys come back I will be tweeking and polishing the drums!

Stay tunes it is going to be a great Country Rocker!

magic-brew%2c-7x2%2c-flare

I just wanted to add a quick update on the goings on here at Magic Brew Music!

This past weekend Jeff Scott Gray performed an acoustic recital at the Stewiacke Culture Showcase event The Written Word-An Evening of Poetry.

Here is the rough setlist of what I played.

15857758_10208508483329803_1528098809_o

On Sunday PJ Miles and Mark MacDonald were in the Magic Brew Studio to work on the drum track for PJ’s new single Take The Wheel and Drive. I must say this song is coming along fantastically!

Stay tuned we will soon start recording guitars!

And if that isn’t enough Shannon Rachel Rafuse was back in the Magic Brew Studio yesterday to record her vocal track for her new single “I Always Hoped” written by Jeff Scott Gray and co-written by Shannon with the odd piece of advice from her mom Theresa Rae (a powerful singer in her own right!)

Get in…..buckle up….this ride is just starting!

Jocelyn Parlee and Magic Brew founder team up!

fb_img_1464305146703

Wow what a day yesterday! As you know Jocelyn Parlee had been in for a tour of the Stew a little while ago. As a result of that meeting we agreed to set up an exploratory song writing jam together.

Well yesterday we played and wrote music for 4 hours! We worked on two songs Jocelyn had been developing to see what I thought and to see what I could add. Double wow! Two fantastic original songs that I feel could be real deals!

Not only that, but Jocelyn and I officially co-wrote another single from a verse she had started to play with! I am very excited about this working relationship!

Stay tuned as we both agreed to work on all three but will start with her new Song “Say My Name” first. Once we have that one in the can we will move on to the next!

“Trust me when I say this Jocelyn’s music has real potential with great song structures, a great unique voice and hooks that will make you jump into the boat!”

PJ Miles at Magic Brew Music with a special guest!

15857758_10208508483329803_1528098809_o

We had a great evening jamming last night as we continue to work on the structure of Phil’s new tune “Take the Wheel and Drive!” I must say it’s coming along very well and man did we ever find a groove thanks to having Mark MacDonald join us on BASS.

Many of you will know Mark from his great work with Local band NoWhere Road! Phil, aka PJ Miles is the lead singer for that band as well!

Mark had been out for a tour of the studio a few weeks back and Phil recruited him to lend his BASS ears to the new track.

Stay tuned folks this Follow-up to Phil’s first single “I Ride “is sure to impress!
