MP3 Charles Parente - Clear Across the Water

Imagine gentle breezes...a warm summer day... a spoonful of chocolate ice cream melting on your tongue. That''s what this album is like. "His songs-and his voice- are simple, pure and strong." The Journal Newspapers

EASY LISTENING: Love Songs, POP: Piano

Thanks for dropping by, and thanks to CD Baby!

Every CD for sale here at CD Baby is personally
signed by me!
I like my listeners to feel
personally involved with my music.

After all, the songs were written for you.

So, instead of hyped up self-promotional gloss,
I''ll just explain plainly what this CD is all about.

The quick guide:
"Easy listening songs with piano and
Smooth and sweet like ice cream.
Imagine a James Taylor album with more piano.
That''s a good starting point."

The long guide:

I write and perform exclusively on piano and acoustic guitar.

Every song on this CD features my voice,
my amazing Steinway L grand piano, and/or my acoustic guitars.

Only 2 songs have drums, recorded by a real live human drummer.
(with a bad haircut, true to drummer regulations)

So it''s a very acoustic environment.

OK...What are the LYRICS like?

Well, sometimes they tell a true story.
Like a jogger named Amy Wroe Bechtel who vanished in Lander, Wyoming.

Just click on the clip for ''The girl who runs no more''
to hear.

Most of the time, the lyrics just express an emotion or sentiment that I think any listener
can relate to.

...wondering if he/she loves you as much as you do--
''All the way from Athens''
click to the left to hear that

...overcoming daily stress and turmoil--
''Midnight Lullaby''
Click to the left to listen.

...wishing thanks to family or friends who love us
from so many miles away--
''Home Again''
Go ahead, listen!
I promise, it won''t hurt.

There''s no profanity or inflammatory or mean-spirited
lyrics here.
All smooth edges and round corners.
No eyes will be poked out.

So what''s the MUSIC like?
Again, all smooth edges here.
Piano and acoustic guitar dominate, with some cello and viola on 2 songs as well.

7 of the 11 songs are ballads. GREAT date music.
Trust me on that one.

Lots of piano ballads.
A few up-tempo guitar foot tappers.

So, that''s it.
My best description of this CD.
No gloss. Way too much gloss already in this world.

But if you''re impressed with media reviews
here are a few...

"Charles makes words dance through his emotional lyrics."
The West Side Times Leader, Wilkes-Barre, PA

"Like the best Singer/Songwriters,
Charles has the ability to frame real-life events
into songs that far transcend the original inspiration.
He has an appealing, mellow style that belies the thoughtfulness of his lyrics."
George Graham, WVIA-FM, Pittston,PA
"Homegrown Music/Mixed Bag"

"His songs-and his voice-are simple, pure and strong."
The Journal Newspapers
