Description
Sleeptalk - This is one of several songs that were recorded several years back with three of my best friends (there is nothing better than making music with good friends). This was a song that we wrote collectively with the lyrics penned and performed by Steve Stout. The guitar work was done by Scot Cloud and Bret Fenster played percussion; collectively we were known as New Brazil. I played my Keith Roscoe 5 string on this Recording.

Note: Don't adjust your volume too much at the start as the song is fades in.

Lyrics
Sleeptalk


She heard him laugh in his sleep last night
sent a chill straight up her spine
and wide awake she listened with a smile

and there was something that she heard
from the dream seemed so absurd
a name she didn't recognize as hers

This has got to be a dream
'cause things aren't always as they seem

Over breakfast she said dear
there's something I think you should hear
and this wave of fear came across his face

She always thought her love was sure
but there's some things that won't endure
who was this girl that had taken her place?

She said, this has got to be a dream
'cause things aren't always as they seem

She heard him cry in his sleep last night
and she awoke in a terrible fright
and she felt comfort and ease from his touch

and there was something that she heard
from this dream that seemed so absurd
t'was a name she didn't recognize yeah

repeat chorus
out

Steve has one of the most distinct and recognizable voices in DFW, he has since retired from gigging, but the boy can still sing. Thanks for the kind comment!

Reminds me of Sting some, with some Knopfleresque guitar fills. Excellent performances by all. Love the chilled groove, very cool!

Thanks! We did a ton of Sting (police) cover stuff back in the day. The Police were a big influence on this band, especially Steve (singer) and Bret (drummer).

2:25 chord change to f sharp minor makes for a good heightened awakening soloing medium choice - even more so - after being in A minor or something - and perfectly e.q.ed polished guitar solo - great -
congas are nice - the rosco bass is fat and
played with good punchy rhythm - this sounds quite LIVE to me - the whole thing - without the crowd banter in the background - and of course the vocals tie it all in well -

Well performed...
and written (are you still working together)? this sounds like a tight, well adjusted group and honestly I am hoping that you are still making music together. Sung well, great lyrics, everything sound great and in its place. Awesome piece.

Thanks Raven
I had the privilege of working with these guys for 11yrs in one form or another. We are all still in touch for the most part and have been kicking around a reunion...the first time since 2005. The band had a very nice run in Dallas Ft Worth & Austin and had a very loyal following. Thanks for the nice compliment!

Ohhh

The bended rhythm guitar is a gem. The solo is another one. The bass creates a lot of space with little touches and silences.

I like the smooth mellow cut of this. You really have this sound down. Vocals fit perfectly and sound very polished and distinctive. Bass really carries this though..would love to collaborate with you on something in the future.

count me a fan of New Brazil. Scot's sound in particular really helps shape the overall feel (which I love). Your bass anchors the band nicely. Very crisp and punchy sound to my ears. The perfect foil to Scot's playing.

Much Appreciated..
John, Scot has a very recognizable tone, and is an incredible player.
