Twenty great songs about life, replete with subtle humor and irony, coupled with great musicianship and a story telling feel. This well-crafted collection of songs takes the listener on a wonderful journey, celebrating lives both well and poorly lived, making an effort not to take it all so seriously, periodically failing, and wondering why. For the most part RP3’s music is happy and positive, but its lyrics belie an underlying angst of past pain and lessons learned the hard way.
Looking for a new favorite band? Odds are very good that this treasury of songs will carry the day. The time it takes to hear a sample may well be a moment you look back to and smile.
Music means a lot. Music changes lives. Certain songs can have the power to reach places in our souls inaccessible by other means. This CD has been described as a timeless, very accessible style of pop music that has an uncanny ability to communicate to a wide variety of people - regardless of age, race or gender. The strength and optimism embodied in these songs (at times, very sunny - at times reflective and world-weary) has a basic ability to connect with others.
Rosetta Pebble's collective creative vision has always been to the produce music that is true to their own life experiences. Living and working in the Detroit area, their song writing is colored by day-to-day interactions, interpersonal relationships, struggles and triumphs, and the wide world view that their considerable travels both in the USA and abroad have afforded them.
Eric and Steve may write songs from different perspectives, but always from the heart. They collaborate in the refinement, arrangement, and recording of those songs, and it is in the melding of those separate musical and lyrical sensibilities that their strength lies. Both put a great deal of care into every aspect of the song-creation process; the kernels of thought at the heart of each song, word choice, arrangements, instrumentation, as well as the process of recording and mixing. Both are only interested in putting forth music that is meaningful to themselves and inspiring to their listeners. Emphasis on current market trends or attempts to conform to what's currently popular have never been parts of the puzzle for Rosetta Pebble. We serve the songs to the best of our creative abilities, and strive to make each a work of art. What you have here is real music, for people who remember real music.
