    First notes of that harmonica made me feel like on was on a moving train in the prairies. Your voice reminded me if I combined Dylan with Dan McCafferty of Nazareth fame. gruff gritty and emphasizing the consonants.
    Nice work Gentlemen

    Another great collab! Should call you two butter cuz you guys are on a roll!


    Nice strong song construction/arrangement. Mark, great job on the vocals, you rock dude! Bear, well you are...Bear!! The bass is big, big in the mix. Way to go on the harmonica, didn't realize you played. I always like additions to rock songs such as horns and harmonicas, they add another dimension to a track.

    Congrats on another smash single!!

    On a roll lol. Yes Bear is fantastic.
    I started playing harp before I picked up my first guitar at age 11 and put it down when I started learning how to wield the axe. I picked up a harmonica at the local music store and everything I had learned as a kid came back fast. TY.

    Mark, another terrific job by you. It is an honor to occupy this virtual stage with someone of your skillsets, and in a perfect world we could do this one live. Since we live in an imperfect world, this virtual stage works just fine. Superb vox, guitar and harp man. And the mixdown is stellar as always. Another hit that I have on continual loop. Thanks for letting this old guy play along Mark. It was a pleasure. I hope all is well.

    TY man but once again you laid down a perfect playground for me. You are as solid as a rock and play great rhythm guitar. It was my pleasure.

Younger Days

Younger days so long ago, A world of wonders hit my eyes
I was strong on the outside, But still learning inside

Lessons always learned the hard way, Sometimes they will drown you out
I have seen a year fly right by, But in troubled times they drag out

On the highest mountain for a breath, And floating on the wind like a tide
Without warning it can all crash down, You are left always wondering why

Younger days so long ago, A world of wonders hit my eyes
I was strong on the outside, But still learning inside

Thinking back to my younger mind, The puzzle starts to fall into place
One at a time and then you look with minds eyes
At the collage which you have been

Oh mine is messed up here and there, I do not tell any lies
We all get older and we all get wiser, Then we expire from this physical life


Younger days so long ago, A world of wonders hit my eyes
I was strong on the outside, But still learning inside

Wish I knew now, What I thought I knew then
Took some years , But I'm coming to grips
Many double takes, Which I've had to brave

It all calmed down
When I gave it away
When I gave it away
Put it all behind you
Or you always remain
Discard the hate 
Discard the pain

This track took me in a very different direction than what I usually do... but by Jove, I had fun. Muchas gracias!

18/10/2020: holy smoke I hadn't realised what a chaotic mess I had made of the mixing. Cleaned it up to my limited abilities and I guess I'll come back again to it later. Even more thanks for listening!

Description : This is my newest creation, at a stage very near to completion. No third-party mastering or mixing, as with all my tracks. Just have to fix a few tiny things. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO MIX EVERYTHING IN THE SAME SESSION. This song has all human-played instruments - no quantization or MIDI! My brother does all the vocals except for the interlude part, which I do. My other brother plays the rhythm guitar (a Gibson Les Paul Custom - only one of 12 in the world!!) and I play the accompanying guitar (a Johnny Mar Jag and PRS). He has a lot of guitars :P A good friend of ours, Ronnie, plays the bass and another friend, Freddie, plays the drums. The drum track was done in one take (had to use an electric drum set due to time constraints - but acoustic kits are so much better). Overall, pretty satisfied with the result. Let me know your thoughts.

Description : I wrote this song some time ago when I was living in Florida. It's even more true today.

Vocals by Arthur Granquist, guitar by the great Kevin Lysen, drums by Marc Karmatz, also the recording engineer.

The idea musically was to take some rock and some bluegrass elements, mash 'em up and see what happened.

Every day is a struggle to do better in a crazy world.

Description : Hello Loopies!!!

This song was supposed to be a Bedlam Kids track, but due to the low (none) interest of Pete on continuing that project, I'll upload the remaining tracks as instrumentals as soon as I can.

For now, here's a song written almost 7 months ago, it's called Simple Things.

Hope you enjoy it!!!
