This track was a vision I started in 2017 and one I left alone for quite some time. Originally the track was going to be more developed with more instruments. Four years later, we picked it up and stripped it down. The arrangement suddenly worked. The track had life.

These two classic songs are NOT easy on a karaoke night to just attempt with no practice. I was super nervous recording these. Wasn't sure I could hang and bring the chops to really dial it all in. It turned out better than expected on so many levels.

I'm a little proud of my arranging work on this (I don't arrange that often, and I think these songs worked out well together). Justin Long killed the production!!

Best Daddy

The idea for “Best Daddy” came to me a couple of years after my 3rd child was born. I noodled with the tune over many years until one day I was singing the chorus in the kitchen and she playfully sang it back to me. There was a “call and response” game that transpired between us and she sang a slightly different version of the melody back to me that ended up being a harmony which helped complete the song.    Now when we play the song, she smiles at me knowing she helped catalyze it coming into the world. It’s special for her and for all of us.

This song reminds me of what is most important to me. As the song says, “I might never drive a Caddy, but I’m gonna be the BEST DADDY I can be!"

I hope BEST DADDY brings joy to you and your family as much as it does to ours!
