California (Soul Coast Mix)

Released 2015

Tall Hair Music
Trade in the snow and the cold for a California dream!
NOTES
I love creating music that transports you somewhere else - like taking a mini audio vacation! I wanted to do something fresh and unexpected with this melody. It would work well as a standard, classic arrangement but I wanted to color outside the lines on this one. I love smooth, soulful grooves and vibes so I went well outside the box in choosing grooves and textures that you wouldn't expect with a "Great American Songbook" …

Beautiful Day

Released 2014
Tall Hair Music
Released 2014
Tall Hair Music
Former Warner/Reprise recording artist goes Indie and invites you to fill up your car with sunshine and sound!
NOTES
It was right before sunset, on the very edge of that seam between daylight and nightfall when I stepped outside to check the mail. Being a night owl, I had almost forgotten what that annoying bright light, shining up in the sky was. I stopped for a moment to take in the beauty above me and was captivated by the intensity of the blue sky and found myself smiling from the slight tickle of the …

Reasons

by Mat Gurman

Released 2014

Released 2014
Tall Hair Music
A sun baked beach in Brazil, a couple of mojitos and you have the perfect setting for this delicious Bossa-fied version of an Earth Wind & Fire classic!
NOTES
It was a pleasure to lend my vocal and production talents to this Earth Wind & Fire classic featuring Mat Gurman on nylon string guitar. This dreamy arrangement gives a nod to the groovy Jobim productions of the 1960's while keeping things fresh with ambient guitar swells and splashes of mandolin and ukulele. Eclectic yet seductively familiar!

Connection

Tall Hair Music
Picture a virtual space: gallery white walls & floors, a grand piano, a string ensemble with a ceiling that is completely open to the night sky. This intimate performance from former Warner/Reprise artist captures the ethereal and the timelessness of love
NOTES
This release brings me back to the stripped down arrangements I wrote in college - very organic - using acoustic piano and small string ensembles. "Connection" called out for an intimate arrangement but with added layers of sweeping textures to bring a sense of expansiveness and the eternal to the track. My intention was to create a feeling of love that transcends all space and time.

Chance of Circumstance (Dance of Life)

by Remi

Released 2012

Released 2012
Tall Hair Music
Take a drive along the coast on a cardboard gray Sunday and find yourself transported to a distant land somewhere across the sea.
NOTES
You can definitely hear the influence of my student years at California Institute of the Arts (Valencia, CA.) in this piece where I studied world music and dance with teachers from West Africa, India and Indonesia.

"Chance" begins as a tone poem which takes you on a visual journey along the coast, transforming in to the exuberant and celebratory section I call "The Dance of Life", transporting your ear to an exotic local. There's something …

House Cleaning - Single

by Remi

Released 2012
Tall Hair Music
Released 2012
Tall Hair Music
Former Warner//Reprise recording artist (of Morris Day's "Day-Z's") flashes back to a warm, retro vibe with 12 bit samplers, analogue synths and tape recording - no Pro Tools or Auto Tune here - this is Old School baby!
NOTES
I've heard it said that a person's external environment mirrors one's internal environment. While the title "House Cleaning" might not seem like something to sing about, I use it as a metaphor for taking a look inside to clear out all the clutter that holds us back in life and in love. -Remi™

Released 2011
Tall Hair Music
Former Warner/Reprise recording artist (of Morris Day's "Day-Z's" fame) transports you to her private Eden with a soulful mix of sensuality and groove.
NOTES
Music, dance and art have always been a part of Remi’s life. “For a time I wanted to be a painter,” Remi recalls, “but music won out with dance as a close second. My grandfather was a great inspiration to me - he was a Vaudeville entertainer and my biggest fan!” While attending California Institute of the Arts, Remi found both passions supported by the World Music Program, where she studied African and Indonesian …
