about

RIO CLARO - CLEAR RIVER

The title of this album carries much meaning in regards to the process of its creation and materialization. The path and intention was crystal clear and effortless, flowing easily in the stages leading up to our Brazilian experience. Rio Claro, a town in Sao Paulo State was also our home for the 6 weeks we lived in Brazil... It’s amazing where music can take you, and I still find it incredible we ended up in Brazil.

I have many, many people to thank, foremost Bruno Padoveze, Asha Henfry & Chris Cameron for their undeniable friendship, hard work, positivity and dedication. This album is a collective effort from the four of us, and it would not have been possible without you, so thank you and I love you all. Bruno, a special thank you for your management, tolerance, multi-tasking and vision, for if it wasn’t for your power of thought the ‘Brazilian Tour’ would have remained a fun topic on a tour bus a long time ago...

A big THANKYOU to William Seven, Thais Padoveze, Ed Primo, Rodrigo Melleiro, Carol Schiesari and her beautiful family and German Shepherds, Midnight Man for his generosity, Mariana Marin Morales, the Padoveze family, Cameron’s, Linda Skrolys & Russell Sheridan & Craig Henfry, Thompson’s, Bianca Aviaz, Geoff Baldwin, Chelsea Cameron for holding the fort down, Zé Bichoff, Ricardo Domingues, Marcelo Cecchi, Erica & Guilherme, Flopsy and the Brazilian public for their acceptance for our music and being great hosts.

Thankyou

Track Name: Going Home
Oohh hurt myself but now I’m feeling alright
travelin down the east coast with one thing on my mind
try baby, you know I try, making a livin out of this guitar
you say it ain’t easy living at home without me around

Coz I’m too in love
to be away for very long and I’m
coming down the coast just as quick as I can, and I
need to know, if you’ll open up your arms, coz I’m
coming down that way, just as quick as you can say
I’m coming home!

Oohhh, your touch is what drives me on through the night
tenderness, the feeling of home just can’t be denied
try baby, you know I try, making a livin out of this guitar
you say it ain’t easy living at home without me around

Coz, I’m too in love
to be away for very long, and I’m
coming down the coast just as quick as I can, and I
need to know, if you’ll open up your arms, coz I’m
coming down that way, just as quick as you can say
I’m coming home!
Track Name: Dream On The Way
Walking around the dead of night
middle of nowhere can’t find a light
something tells me deep inside
something tells me I’m right

Yeah I feel it
Coming my way
And I know that
That my dream is on the way X 2

Yeah I’m tryin to find my way down the line
diggin myself outta this hole
but it feels so hard to believe
that I’m out here all alone
Track Name: Coz I Got You
Made a whole lotta money, held it in my hand
money to a young man, sure you understand
but I threw it all away for something that I love
yeah you know that the straight life, don’t fit me like a glove

Coz I got you

Yeah I work everyday, work my back to that bone
Makes it all now worth it, when I come home,
and I got you

Coz I got you
Track Name: Hold On
Well I wish
that I see her again
and I pray
that she come my way
but the highs are low
and the lows are high
Hold On

And I feel it in my bones
yeah it starts down low
and the feeling is mutual
yeah I know she feel it too
ahh but here I go again
starting to pretend
Hold On

Yeah I’m not sure why
which way it’s gonna go
and I’m trying my hardest
not to let it show
But here I go again
Starting to pretend
Track Name: Old Friend
Old friend where are you today
old friend why have you gone astray

Why do we do it like we do
we both play the selfish chord
you know I always sick of thinking bout you
coz you always did me wrong

I think of all the years
Old Friend

Old friend there must be another way
old friend you know the memory still stays

Why do we do it like we do
we both play the selfish chord
you know I always sick of thinking bout you
coz you always did me wrong

I think of all the years
Old Friend
Track Name: Don't Wake Me Up
Oh I feel like I’m living a dream
everything ain’t quite what it seems
Don’t wake me up baby X 3
Oh I don’t know quite what is real
I admit I like the way that that feels
Don’t wake me up baby X 3
Track Name: Rain On My Parade
Held a broken arrow and I pointed it at you
would I let it go
I had plans for this kingdom
free of greed and broken dreams
then you came along

So don’t rain on my parade

I was always wondering
what the hell with you is wrong
but I let it go
I had plans for this kingdom
free of greed and broken dreams
then you came along

So don’t rain on my parade
Track Name: In The Mind
I was born by a stream
gold coloured mountains all around
a higher belief
that something is here that’s greater that me
my feet on the ground
sun beating down giving life to all
Fear and doubt
these are emotions created by man

Fear the disease of the mind

Travelin light
this is the way I wanna live
day by day
breathing as one connected to all
but I am alive
struck down by what I see
all of the greed and all of the fear
created by man

Fear the disease of the mind
Track Name: Dardy Blues
If you held my hand
you know I’d like it
swinging happily
down at the old oak tree
watch me climb it
meet you up the top
just you and me
Oohh singing in the sun
ohh we’re just having fun
singing the Dardy blues

If you follow me
you know I take you
to a place only I know
over the hill and around the bend
down by the stream
just me and you
Oohh singing in the sun
ohh we’re just having fun
singing the Dardy blues

No need to sing the blues
when I’m with you
climbing high
is all we do
The sun’s always shining bright
In the sky
come on down lets sing the Dardy Blues!

Oohh singing in the sun
ohh we’re just having fun
singing the Dardy blues
Track Name: On My Own
So hard, so hard to bear
this load, I cannot share
I’m on my own

The road leads on
so many turns
and I wonder
when will I learn
I’m on my own
