About this blog

Preview prior to official release

 

I co-wrote this single titled "Sausalito Nights" for American artist `Amaryllis Santiago` (The Latin Phoenix) which has been released on Radio and it's getting airplay in the states and United Kingdom on Jazz stations. The official release of the single will not be until October along with 9 songs on a 12 song album I have co-written for her. It was recorded in Chicago by some awesome musicians listed on my soundcloud page. I have set the page to `Private` so the song will not be available to the general public until October.

Beautiful

My apologies for posting 2 in a row but I just got an email that one of my songs has been featured on GodTube.

 

The Artist is `Sheaam Dean` who is resident in Sri Lanka. I crafted the lyric to a rough melody that my co-writer Andy Gatford sent me. Las Vegas Pianist Dave Haertel di the piano and string arrangement and I produced Sheaam's vocals remotely.

 

Award winning producer Giampaolo Pasquile mixed and mastered the song and it was released as a single and is also on an EP that I co-wrote for Sheaam with different co-writers.

 

I wrote the lyric as a song to Jesus although I haven't mentioned his name. I am not a Christian although I have great respect for his teachings.

I've just had notification that my song "Don't take too long"  is under consideration for the American artist Faith Hill's next album. I won't know until the beginning of August whether it has been successful or not. Here is the lyric. Wish me luck.

 


Don’t Take Too Long Lyric by: Raymond Fry & Steve Manning

 

Verse 1:

As you step into the future I may never see,

Let yourself become the person you could really be.

I know the days move slowly as you wish away your youth,

Beware of those who claim that they alone have found the truth.

 

Chorus 1:

Don’t take too long to realize that you're strong,

Don’t let people fool ya, when they tell ya you're wrong.

Don’t take too long to see we’re not inside the Matrix, love is real,

Don’t take too long to find that scars can heal.

 

Verse 2:

If you find that there are roads which you must walk alone,

Try to find a self that you can truly call your own.

If after failed relationships you can't bare them any-more,

Don’t take too long to realize that love’s worth waiting for.

 

Chorus 2:

Don’t take too long to realize that you're strong,

Don’t let people fool ya, when they tell ya you're wrong.

Don’t take too long to see we’re not inside the Matrix, love is real,

Don’t take too long to find that scars can heal.

 

Bridge:

I can see your natural spirit clearly shining through,

And I’m so proud that I can spend this precious time with you.

Believe there’s not a single problem you cannot surmount,

And while this life caresses you, make every moment count.

 

Verse 3:

Wish I had more to say, wish I had more to give:

A mothers inspiration for every day you live.

And I hope that when the course is finally run,

You’ll look back and say “Those days were good, and I was loved”.

 

Chorus 3:

Don’t take too long to realize that you're strong,

Don’t let people fool ya, when they tell ya you're wrong.

Don’t take too long to see we’re not inside the Matrix, love is real,

Don’t take too long to find that scars can heal.

 

Outro:

Don’t take too long

to realize you're strong,

Don’t take too long...................................
