Story

I met Karie Hillery and booked her to play at my then "Kahish's Catch Cafe" in Trinidad. Karie is also a producer/engineer of Creekside Studio where she takes on limited clients. After I sold my Cafe and had more time. I made a date to stay over and record. I was mostly interested in recording "Naked at the Airport." I brought my song book and just picked out ones that felt right to record that day. I wrote People People in 1986 but had never really recorded it. I say "really ' because I used to play in a band called 'Hi Beam'. We recorded our practices and I am sure at least part of 'People People' got recorded...The cassette tapes would always run out when we were cranking out a flawless hot song...oh well.  It is a fun and simple song and easy for other musicians to lay stuff on it...

After my studio time with Karie, I just sat on the recordings until I had the opportunity to add other musicians. Karie has her crew that added percussion  with Herrara and bass with Kenny Susan. My friend Michael Stephensen liked this song and was also up for adding some vibes...I really love Michael's contribution as it makes the song for me. It is so amazing that I was able to get this project done with out all the people being in the same room at the same time...technology can be really cool.

BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, THIS LIFE OF YOURS WILL BE OVER

IF YOU’RE IN DOUBT, TAKE A LOOK AROUNSD CAN YOU START OVER

THEN EVERYBODY TAKES A DIFFERENT LOOK AND STARTS GROWIN’
