Heather McCready's "Summer Song" is an enchanting remake of the classic song by Chad and Jeremy in the early 1960's. Her arrangement is serene and quite elegant, rich with sweet harmonies and delicate strings.
" It is like giving birth each time a song is completed. It is always a labor of love and ..well, some pain- but nevertheless it's always well worth it :) I adore this song and wish that I could say I wrote it! It is a remake of the classic song recorded by Chad and Jeremy in the early 60's. The writers were Chad Stuart with Clive Metcalfe and Keith Noble. I sing it at the close of each concert to say good-bye to my audience. It is a sad song for me- too bittersweet. Milo Deering was my producer/arranger on this song again. (Of course, who else?) His beautiful arrangement would make the original writers beam with pride (and envy, I suspect). Milo and I hoped to create a gentler, more approachable version of the song. It is serene, slower than the original, and intended to feel organic, breezy and pure. Oh, I so hope you enjoy our creative endeavor and that it gives you many peaceful moments. Many thanks to Bob Gentry at The Living Room in Tyler, Tx for the great mastering. He is another great one!" -Heather McCready
"It is my hope to write peaceful music that inspires hearts and engages imaginations. I want to sing sweet songs, both happy and sad, with enduring melodies and a gentle voice. I love to use celtic sounds with tin whistles and the fiddle paired with other stringed instruments like my favorite, the cello! I need to breath a positive breath of fresh air into the world before I leave it one day. Whether it is with my music, my love of nature, photography, or through my honesty coping with both physical and spiritual trials- I hope that I will make you feel better somehow through these things. This is ME and I welcome you to look inside." - Heather McCready
