MP3 Dave Morehouse - Out From Under the Covers

Think acoustic rock with enough electronics to make it very interesting. The lyrics are crafted and musical.

13 MP3 Songs
ROCK: Acoustic, ROCK: 90''s Rock

“Out From Under the Covers” is an apt description of the current stage in my musical life. For many years I played cover tunes in variety bands to try and make sure my family was able to keep eating. (A nasty habit they developed at an alarming rate!) Also, at least some cover tunes have been featured on all of my previous albums. This is the first album released by me that is 100% original material. I am finally Out From Under the Covers!

Over the last couple of years I have written many (Like three dozen) acoustic/alternative rock songs that just didn’t seem to fit with the album I was working on at the time. The songs were great by themselves but they never ''went'' with my other projects. Out From Under the Covers is 13 of those songs.

All parts were played, sung, recorded, and produced by Dave Morehouse. (That’s me!) It has been a monumental effort but the results are everything that I wanted. These songs have been played live and “tested” on live audiences. All have been received well and people have pestered me as to when they would be available as an album. This album is a response to that prodding. These 13 songs are my faves from among those tunes which received the most positive audience feedback over the last couple of years.

The making of Out From Under the Covers has been a labor of musical love. It is my sincere hope that you are able to enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed producing it.

I Can Hold You (3:21) This is a rather
straightforward rock tune. The trumpets make up
the ''hook'' for the song. After describing all the
things that can''t be done the most powerful of
statements "I Can Hold You" provides resolution to
the song. This is a personal fave of mine and that''s
why it sits on the pole position for the album.

Sometime Special (3:36) A song about a
person''s inability to tell someone else how they feel
about them. Listen carefully for the cardboard box
which is played by an old set of drum brushes.

I Fell Into Your Eyes (3:35) This is a rockin''
love ballad based on one of humankind''s greatest
weaknesses. The eyes truly are windows to our
very souls.

Only You (4:25) A slow ballad with a mixture of
nylon strung classical and distorted electric guitars.
For me, this one was the most fun to record. It
harkens back to a day when I cranked the amp and
let her rip playing fills betwixt the vocal lines.

I''m Comin'' Home (4:05) This song has been
best received by live audiences and is often
requested "across the bandstand". My four note
harmonica skills are at the forefront of this
recording. The heavily effected Gibson SG (Chorus
pedals rock!) keeps the rhythm going throughout.

Love At First Sight (4:05) Piano and acoustic
guitar combine to form a background for the
saddest of events. Love at first sight which turns
into an unrealised yearning.

Do Me (3:45) Heavy synths and wailing harmonies
emphasize the hapless plight of the young
runaway. This isn''t a smile over breakfast tune.

Crazy (5:07) Another particular fave of mine off this
album. I love the chorus for this song. The chorus
was written in 1997 but I never liked the rest of the
song. Over the next ten years I wrote three different
melodies and four different sets of lyrics to this
song. What you hear on the album is the only one I
was ever happy with. I am glad I stuck it out.

It Still Hurts (4:19) Another chorus that was
written long ago. I changed the song entirely and
kicked it up several notches. This one taps out at
about 145 beats per minute so put your crazylegs
on for this one.

Please Come Back (3:31) A tune about a
problem that every relationship encounters sooner
or later. One person is waiting up late for the other
to get home. I may have done too much personal
research for this song prior to writing it. If the vocals
sound a little too whiny it''s because they were
meant to be that way!

Let''s Go To Milwaukee (3:20) Comic relief for
the album done in a style well suited for audience
participation. I''ll say no more........

What The Fire''s For (3:24) Two people who are
on the rebound find each other and discover all that
they need. A variety of instruments and a muted
vocal help to get the message across to the listener.

Harley Song (My Harley Davidson) (1:51) A
simple and straight ahead ballad about a couple''s
love for their ride. This is done in 3/4 time for those
of you who are waltz inspired!

All songs were written and recorded by Dave
Morehouse (c.2008) and all instruments and vocals
were played and sung by Dave Morehouse. (ASCAP)
Published at In the Chips Production (2008)
