Amy Krebs: Story now on iTunes

June 13, 2012

A new song, Story, which I co-wrote with and produced for Amy Krebs, has just hit the iTunes. Amy is a fantastic Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter who I have collaborated with before (see this previous article on Move On). Story is a lush R&B/soul relationship ballad which we originally wrote with just Rhodes and voice, and then over time expanded with a full band and Maxwell vibe.

We did a live session for this song at my studio with Valerie Franco (drums), Leo Budirahardjo (bass guitar), and Chris Wrate (electric guitar), and then I worked to create the complex textures that go through the song — Rhodes, synths, B3, loops, and the unique vinyl flavorings. Finally, Amy recorded extensive lead and background vocals to finish it off. (In the future, we may release the a cappella mix, which is a real earful.)

Story is available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon, and can also be streamed from SoundCloud below.

Story, how do I begin to tell our story
Of love and loss and moving forward slowly
It might not have been a lot of time
But it plays in my mind
Story, no one since measured up it got me wondering
If it’s possible to love again so strongly
Did I give up and not win the fight
Could it still be you and I

We haven’t talked in months when it used to be hours
How can that leave me wanting more and more
Still search a room nervously hoping to encounter
Your face in the crowd

Cause every love has life
Mine won’t die
Despite how hard I try
They say don’t give up the fight
Who knows better than I

Cause once in a blue moon you
Find someone who
You surrender your heart and soul to
Well that someone for me was you

Story, I keep trying to rewrite our story
With every option being thrown before me
I’ve justified it a hundred times
How not one could be right
Story, the thought of no more you has got me wondering
If I really want to put this love behind me
Once and for all and be done with it
But I can’t help reminisce
