Hooray for the Non - Performing Songwriter. They were once the cream of music and have produced most of the Great American Songbook. Bring them BACK! Enough of the POP singer/writer era. It's turned into mush, dribble, predictability and regurgitation.
Song #2 "A Part Of My Heart"
Chicago's PATRICIA BARBER would fit this.
JIMMY MILLER & CY GREEN
32 years of collaboration
They are Chicago natives who are self-taught and came up the hard way. Some of their DEMO songs have been played on the radio and performed in public. Three of their songs were published in 1993. Major Jazz vocalists have shown interest ... But that one artist (group) that could really put them on the map has eluded them.
Chasing the American Songbook
Jim & Cy were heavily influenced by JAZZ musicians, and the GREAT music from the past from other genres. They have something that can be added to today's scene.Their roots are traditional with a new twist! The fact is, it is extremely rare when writers who do not perform, can also come up with original Jazz 'Heads' worthy of looking into.
FREE Lead Sheets sent on request.
If you are interested in performing and/or recording any of their tunes, you will deal directly with them. They are signed to no one and own all copyrights.
Our problem with music publishers was, they didn't know what Genre to place our songs. This is not hard complex stuff, and most tunes have LYRICS. We prefer to deal directly with the Artist. If you are a publisher who has a "solid in" with Jazz people, we'd consider signing contracts again... but man, time is running out for us. We've been there and done that.
