In New Orleans, I got to work with the Warren Easton teen gospel choir as part of a Pricewaterhouse community project (Thanks kids and Ms. Rob!). PwC wanted to create a short film and song to celebrate their renovation of Warren Easton HS, badly damaged by hurricane Katrina. I was hired by DW of Spring (www.springcreates.com) to write and produce the song for the project and to sing it with these beautiful kids. What a great time it was teaching them the song and working on harmonies. Their funny, happy, charming, sweet personalities, and faces, are still on my mind. We’ll post the song on the download page. The download will be free, but I encourage you to make a donation to Warren Easton. http://www.warreneastoncharterfoundation.com/
DW contacted me a few months ago out of the blue. We worked together on some commercials for General Motors EV1 (the electric car) some years ago, and he says he wants me to be a part of his new company. I’m very excited about that, since the two projects we’ve worked on so far have involved helping children and saving the environment. He’s a very creative guy, too.
Today I’m working on a song for another of his projects. I don’t have the job yet, but I can really see how it should be, so I hope I’ll get the chance to do it. He sent me some images and text, and I immediately walked outside to the studio and wrote two songs with the same title. One, I like a lot, but it feels too personal, quirky, not quite a fit for the project. The other feels exactly right to me. I want to demo it properly and will get started on that this week. Paul and I are working on these projects together and having a great time doing it.
