Liv Taylor & Indifferent Matters: Restless Nights

Peter J Blume’s Trumpets, Flugelhorns & Trombones are on the album’s 1st single: “Things I Wish You Said“. Here is the press release:

Things I Wish You Said’, from the band ‘Indifferent Matters’ lead by Liv Taylor, under the label Sweatshop Studios.

KATONAH, NY, UNITED STATES, March 21, 2018, EINPresswire — ‘Things I Wish You Said‘, the first single release from the debut album ‘Restless Nights‘, a debut album of the band ‘Indifferent Matters‘ lead by Liv Taylor, under the label Sweatshop Studios.

About The Song:

“Musically it is on just as tantalizing ground as it builds on chilled and soulful minimalism, with chiming guitars and plaintive piano just guiding the words to their intended destination, before sullen brass edges in and sounds the changes. Beats build, a trumpet carries the main riff, banks of sumptuous harmonies add body and the song grooves and sashays towards its conclusion. Things I Wish You Said deftly splices ambient funk, alternative soulful rock, laid-back blues and an air of neo-hippyism to great effect, and why not, that isn’t a blend you come across too often and they do it elegantly. If this song marks their first time around the musical block, I can’t be the only one intrigued to hear what happens next!”

Liv Taylor Bio:

Developing an interest in music from the tender age of six, when her dad would play her songs by icons such as Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and Billy Joel, Liv asked for a guitar when she was seven and started vocal lessons around the same time.

Inspired to begin writing music at the age of eight, when her father sadly passed away, Liv began by journaling her thoughts but soon found that her words were turning into lyrics in her notepads.

Real-life events are the inspiration behind all of her music and it is this reflecting on real life experiences and putting them to music that has become the norm for Liv, with her music becoming the artwork of her thoughts.

Liv’s debut single ‘Things I Wish You Said’ exposes an emotional and painful time for the singer.

Drawing inspiration from artists such as Colbie Callait, Shawn Mendes, and Ed Sheeran, Liv believes in writing music that is personal, yet relatable.

With moving lyrics and an emotive melody, ‘Things I Wish You Said’ is sure to resonate with us all.


The background of PETER’s involvement:

Just before Thanksgiving 2017, Shaul Dover of Sweatshop Studios (where I had recorded “My Classical Passion“) approached me and wanted me to listen to a song he was working on with a client–he felt it needed ‘something’ and asked if I would try maybe adding some horns to it. With not a lot of turn-around time (3 days), I listened to it over & over again, until I came up with a motif-line, demo recorded it–utilizing a trumpet, a flugelhorn, & a trombone–and sent it back to him. He said he liked my ideas very much, but that it was ultimately the artist’s decision whether she wanted to use it or not. I never heard anything back–until this past week, when Shaul called to let me know the good news: that they had decided to use some of my demo tracks right onto the finished produced / released song single!

 

When I had first heard Liv’s voice–it reminded me a lot of Kat Edmonson; the singer who covered “What a Wonderful World” for a recent Toyota TV commercial. When I went looking for ideas for my horns, I was definitely thinking about the song “Thinking About You” by Norah Jones–low, long tones, laying back (behind the beat), utilizing crescendo dynamics, subtle and soulful horn pads to support (& not get in the way of) Liv’s vocal and the keyboard chime-effect.

 

For the actual produced/released song though, they only used a select few of my lines…but I think it’s still kinda interesting to see where it all came from, as compared to what made it onto the finished product…For a comparison, check out a sample of my full-demo horns in the Sound Clips tab of my Music header pull-down menu. Hope you enjoy!
