Description : A cover of the late '80's song released by Billy Bragg and on the Back to Basics album. 3 acoustic gits, strings, harmonica and yours truly serenading you. First one for 2020
Description : Billy wanted to record a song by the Godfather of Soul, Mr. James Brown. He picked this one, played the guitars and sang all the parts. There's a cool 3 part backing harmony singing section he arranged. I'm playing bass and did the mixing. Tried to give it that "old timey" feeling like the original by mic'ing an old Kay amp he brought over giving it that sound.
Description : I remember passing by that club in San Diego. So I had to do a song about it. Billy Dean Sausage? Really? I meant Jimmy Dean. Ha!
Original title: "Sumi's Got Game (Bouncer at the Brass Rail)"
Description : vocals used from billy eilish's live cover of You Don't Get Me High Anymore.
Description : Billy, aka "Sweet Willy", wanted to record a blues song written by Dave Von Ronk so he stopped by with his Gibson re-issue 1942 Southern Jumbo which was only 1 of 10 made for the Dallas guitar show the year he bought it. It even has the classic banner on the headstock and it sounded and recorded great! He sang a lead vocal track and a couple backups. The tracking took about 15 minutes and I did a couple mixes. I dig the tune and Billy's rendition, hope you do too!
Description : A song about a train, Jimmy on guitar and his life long friend Billy experimenting with an old Kalamazoo lap steel, a late addition. Fender Tele through a Fender Princeton. I attribute two train loops by Daniel Simion at Soundbible. The third train sound is a guitar loop with effects. I play the bass, sing, acoustic guitar, wrote, arranged and mixed it. Might have the singer in Jim's bluegrass band redo the vox at some point.
Description : Time to give y'all a break from my vocals...
So, I was going through songs from years past on my laptop - there are hundreds - and came across this one that I'd nearly forgotten about, even though I love it.
There's a story that comes with it. Way back in MySpace days (yep, going back) I connected with a singer in the UK named Kymberley Kennedy, an amazing singer, just fantastic voice. She liked my tracks so we agreed to work on some tracks together. I sent her this song, and she and her boyfriend Mo, the producer, put a sample together, a minute and a half. I loved it. But then Kymmie got interest from a record company and dropped the project. So I was left with an incomplete song - only part of one of the verses and the chorus. What to do? I brought in a guitarist and extended the song to full length with a music bridge and some repetition. Had to. And this is the result.
So then last night I was checking Kym out on YouTube. She's got a bunch of videos up, with some modest success. I listened to some of them and yes, they're great, but at the same time they sound a lot like a lot of stuff out there. What attracted me to Kymmie's music in the first place was that it was raw and real, it expressed a real personality, it had a vital edge. The record-company songs don't, to me. I listened back to some of the songs - some are just samples - that Mo & Kym sent to me way back when - their stuff - and I like it much better. I googled and found some of the finished results - I like the first drafts better. So I started messing around with a couple, extending them, tweaking, just for my own personal delectation. To me, they sound freaking incredible. So I think that's an important lesson, to me anyway and maybe to all of us - watch the overproduction. Don't get too fancy. Keep it raw and real. Keep it human. Perfectly flawed is so much better than flawlessly perfect.
Description : Here's an upcoming duet single I have coming out in January. Tony & Grammy winner Billy Porter (and one of my oldest/best friends) sang on this duet with me. I produced the track, a reimagined version of Des'ree's 90s classic, with mostly live musicians; with the exception of some electronic elements sprinkled in...including an awesome loop I found on this site! Shout to laurentwirz!! The full version will be out in January along w/ the video. 100% of proceeds benefit a children's charity in LA. Hope u like! Thanks! MZ
Description : I am looking for a vocalist who could professionally sing their own lyrics to this, and once I get YOUR vocals and lyrics synced to this, there is a GOOD chance that you COULD get Discovered.
I put the music out to Miley Cyrus, Noah Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Alicia Keys, Katy Perry, Madonna, and of course everyone THEY know!

Description : Thats my second presentable RnR track - I just started w/ singing, so I am not that experienced yet thus I would appreciate to hear you vocalists singing / humming on it - need to have a melody.
Description : Patrick Floyd “Pat” Garrett 1880, was charged with tracking down an old acquaintance from his bar-keeping days. Twenty-one year old Henry McCarty better known then, as now, as Billy the Kid. After a bloody game of cat and mouse the lawman finally did for the outlaw; ambushing him in the dark and killing him with a single blast from his Sharps rifle. Garrett may have staged the whole thing so that his old friend could disappear once and for all.

Description : Please credit Billy Marks in title 95 bpm
Description : Another collab with the awesome CVSNB. The lyrics here are written by both Altly & Precedent, so they're reflective of two similar but at times very different experiences of growing up under the poverty line. The song obviously samples Billy Paul's "Let the Dollars Circulate," so all rights reserved to the original copyright holder there.
Description : This is a Earl Sweatshirt 'Grief' inspired track off his new album I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside.
So give a listen and link me if you do anything with it!
P.S Yes the drums are suppose to be distorted to give it that 'EARL' vibe.
You can use this as long as you put [Prod. Billy Green] in the title!
You can use this as long as you put [Prod. Billy Green
Description : This is an Earl Sweatshirt inspired beat.
It is a sampled track with a haunting 'music box' and hard hitting old school drums.
Chuck us a link if you use it!
You may use this whenever as long as you put [Prod. Billy Green] in the title of the track!

Track 8 of my project: this is once more a poem from Billy Dragon.
Check his profile, he writes very good stuff:
This time I also used (or better said, misused) a sax loop from Neongroover:
Some key parts have been contributed by MrSeaDog (thanks Stefano!).
As usual, comments and suggestion highly appreciated.
Description : EDIT: you can download the full album for free http://mrwolf14.bandcamp.com ....... I decided to put some of my songs together in an album (just for myself).
Since most of the inspiration came from this wonderful site, I will post all of them here.
I am more or less done with the mix, I need to master the track and even if this is just for myself, I would like to get the best possible sounding record.
So ... I am all ears! Expecting for your precious inputs (as usual).
Big thanks to Mr Billy Dragon for this wonderful poem:
This was the first thing I downloaded and used from looperman. So of course it had to be my "opening track".
Description : 100bpm dub-style track in Cmin. This originally was an instrumental and I had no intention of adding vocals, but Billy Dragon's poem fit perfectly so I couldn't help myself. Many thanks to Billy Dragon for making his work available for use, and thank you to you for listening!
