This CD has a great mix of fun folky pop songs and then some really sexy love songs.
With Care is actually a blue grass tune (you should look up alternative recordings to hear the difference from ours), but with a jazz drummer on board it became sort of a jazz folk mix.
This Woman and You is just fun to sing and dance to.
Love Song is all about finding the love of your life.
Kiss Me describes the moment you find them and how you feel - dying for that first kiss.
Lately rocks country style and is open to interpretation!
She's my Sister is all about me (Suz) and my sister, Janice. You should know she passed away in 2008, but I got most of the song done before then and she LOVED it!
Shine Again is a song about hope and having someone who believes in you.
Slow Poke is a fun cover from way before we were born!
Below is our Bio:
Music should be fun. Sexy, dangerous, sad, angry, full of love, hope, beauty, hate... Those are all great too. But always fun.
In the years they've been making music as the Sugar Ponies have never lost sight of this simple rule. They're deadly serious about the music they make, yet they never take themselves too seriously.
Suzanne's diverse vocal chops, honed in SF jazz venues and at turns sultry and playful, lend themselves as effortlessly to the kaleidoscopic range of the Ponies' material: the electric anticipation of that first epic kiss on "Kiss Me," the self explanatory "Love Song," the classic kiss-off "Railroad," the confusion and frustration of "This Woman and You," the mournful "Sisters" and the just plain silly "Cowboy." Multi instrumentalist Michael creates the perfect musical counterpart to every lyric and mood, his guitar and keyboard stylings steeped in the influence of XTC's Andy Partridge, Pete Townshend and Mike Campbell to name a few, and benefiting from years of experience in genre-spanning live outfits as well as indie film scoring work.
As the Sugar Ponies' Altpopcountfolkrock (non-)genre continues to gather acolytes and its familiar pink-shades-sporting mascot pops up ever more frequently all over the Bay Area, Suzanne and Michael remain true to their ethos: Making sure that everyone who comes to see them, plays with them or even discovers their music by accident has as much fun seeing and hearing it as they do creating and playing it.
