about

Much of the music on “My Little One” was inspired by my love for the classic recordings of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Billy Holiday, and Frank Sinatra. The songs are nostalgic in nature and may recall the feeling of classic standards, yet still have a modern aesthetic in approach. In creating this atmosphere, the band is made up of a wonderful group of musicians. The record features a Portuguese vocalist, Luisa Sobral; drummer, Dan Rieser; bassist, Gary Wang; and Pete Rende plays on a multitude of keyboard instruments.

Track Name: My Little One
My Little One

When I met you I was lost
on a path that had led me astray
You have brought me back again
now I can't find the words to say…
How do I write a simple song for you?
…that gives you all you've given me
Why can't I find the words to tell you?
…you give all you can
All I am is in this song,
cause you are My Little One
I want to tell you what you mean to me
My Little One
Track Name: Afternoons With Gramps
Afternoons with Gramps

Those days with you
still fill my heart
Time is supposed to heal all wounds
when I think of you
The times we shared…
Thanks to you,
I have the life I'm living
You've given me such memories
I'll always hold a place for you
In dreams I had,
you brought to life
You made it all come true for me,
sweet dreams through the night
I'm left with the feeling
that you have done all one can do
Now in this moment,
you will live inside my dreams forever.
Track Name: Balance
Balance

Now that all the lights are low
I will think of you
my heart starts to flow
It enters my soul, softly
transcending time
drift into me
This world, I want to live in eternity with you
Letting go reveals this special place
living in the now
this truth shows it's face
I release my hopes, slowly
setting me free
with distant glee
This world, I want to live in eternity with you
When I’ve reached for you
I long to hold you tight
just as you fade and you're gone
I’m left to journey yet again
Go back, begin to breathe a new
close my eyes once more
to live in pursuit
My thoughts are now still, deeply
cares are away
flow out of me
This world, I want to live in eternity…fades
now search again
Track Name: A Simple Gift
A Simple Gift

A Simple Gift, not what it seems
Beauty shines no more
The sound we shared still rings within
Never will fade
Just memories now have left a void
Where did time go?
Absence hurts so
Left me alone
I can't forget you're voice
This was not my choice
Can't relive the past
Life it seems is not the same
Sit and wait while nothing happens, but hope still remains

Track Name: A Christmas Wish
A Christmas Wish

Just this past Christmas
we danced in the moonlight
Holding each other
drifting till dawn
Bring back last Christmas
how I miss the moonlight
Loves left in silence
I waited to long
I was so foolish
My eyes would not see
that I had all I wished for
with you dancing there with me
Swaying alone
to the sound of sweet memories
Now next Christmas I’ll wish for that night once more
Track Name: Glowing
Glowing

Visions of knowing
are keeping us growing
Feels like we're falling,
these forces keep calling
I'm glowing, I’m glowing
I'm glowing, still glowing
Silence your demon
it brings you no reason
Love brings us focus
and cycles straight through us
Darkness fades to light
glowing in the night
Track Name: Broken Trail
Broken Trail

If there's a white light that I see
this truth will set you free
When there's a wide road at your feet
take heart which path you seek
Breathe deep, now think
what time will bring to you
It's time to leave the past behind
and watch this trail unwind
I start to walk forth gingerly
see pain in front of me
This long and twisted trail I’m on
it breaks the will of me
Keep walking on for miles and miles
no end is to be seen
Now that the dust begins to clear
reveals what I have feared
I’m on a trail of broken dreams
which leads nowhere it seems
Track Name: A Christams Wish (Reprise)
A Christmas Wish

Just this past Christmas
we danced in the moonlight
Holding each other
drifting till dawn
Bring back last Christmas
how I miss the moonlight
Loves left in silence
I waited to long
I was so foolish
My eyes would not see
that I had all I wished for
with you dancing there with me
Swaying alone
to the sound of sweet memories
Now next Christmas I’ll wish for that night once more
