THE “REESONZ” ACCORDING TO DAVID MCLORREN

What would the soundtrack to your life sound like? For David McLorren, it sounds like “Reesonz.” There are 11 reasons for the eclectic collection of songs on this album. For David, the reasons range from making a statement to being true to himself. His music is comprised of the melodies of his life. They are also melodies that tell a story and inspire; they inspire listeners to take an introspective look into their lives and gain a deeper understanding. Although McLorren is well rounded and versed in chemistry, technology, and a few instruments, it is music that he sees as he looks at his life. Drawing inspiration from family, God, and circumstances, David is marching to his own drum and being the best him he can be.

PETER WHITE MAKES ME “SMILE”

If you want to lift your spirits and feel incredibly good, then sit back, relax, and listen to Peter White’s new CD, “Smile.” It is a bountiful collection of soul-stirring songs that will have you pressing repeat. Although “Smile” is Peter’s 14th album, and his career has spanned 40 decades, he remains driven by his fans’ appreciation for his music. When asked if he had a formula for making an album, his response was, “I have to be moved”–by the music that is. Peter reached into his vault of previously written songs to create this masterpiece. “Smile” has lots of personal touches that make it extraordinarily special for many reasons–one of them being that White was joined by some of his dear friends in music: Rick Braun, Mindi Abair, Euge Groove, Philippe Saisse, Nate Phillips, Ramon Yslas, Stevo Theard, and his daughter, Charlotte. Furthermore, it includes a song for the birthday of a friend’s daughter (Jordan), a song in honor of Barry White, and a tribute to Mason Williams. “Smile” has a song for everyone and is sure to be a fan favorite.

AL DEGREGORIS DID IT “ALL IN GOOD TIME”

When you start playing piano at age four and over time evolve into a multi-instrumentalist all while still a young man, your future has promise. Al DeGregoris simply wanted to be like his older family members he witnessed performing in a band. He had to have it, and so he went after it. To his advantage, Al not only honed his talent but also learned the technical side of music and owned his own recording studios. Armed with an arsenal of talent and skills, DeGregoris’ collaboration with Nils and Jeff Lorber on “All In Good Time” was majestic. Significantly different from his first two albums, Al describes “All In Good Time” as “organic.” It was recorded live with some of the finest musicians in the industry.
