20 year old song gets new life.

Anyone remember these?

Anyone remember these?

Back in the 90’s when I was busking every day at the seabus and going to University I wrote a song with a woman named Kate MacColl.  I had this chord progression I kept playing but that was it.  She came back the next day with these lyrics and moving melody.  We recorded the song on my guitar and her vocals at a studio just to “have it”.  I really never thought about it much until 20 years later when she contacted me to tell me she entered it in a contest and it got runner up.  I went to her website and had a listen.  It’s still got legs all these years later.  You never know in the music business when your songs will finally mean something to someone.

Use to busk at the terminal. The seabus departed every 15 min. & we would make some serious money.

You can here the song here if you wish.

  1. Kelly!!! Katie here…weird how the internet works. I did a search on my name, just to see what would come up, then from there did a google image search (I’m NOT the Kate MacColl posing in her underwear, just for the record!) and saw a…picture of the SeaBus?!? Clicked through to this…so you saw our song placed in the UK Songwriting Contest! I posted right away to some other site you’ve got going on to let you know, but didn’t hear back from you so wasn’t sure you’d seen that message. Anyway, the video for the song really will get finished one day…take care, Kelly *hugs all the way from Vancouver BC* Katie
