Bass Music By: Wade Craver @ NorCal BASSIX. Recorded by ConArtistE Publications.
I call this my “theme” (song) because this was the first thing that I ever wrote with the intention of delivering it in this Spoken Word Style. That is to say, it was not intended to remain on the page. I was inspired by a spoken word artist who participated in a song on a collaboration album. The beginning was a rough guitar sound and a driving rhythm that never changed. The words, alone, captured my attention and I thought that the delivery was incredible.
Therefore, I mimicked this style. I wanted to be bold and uninhibited. I wanted a consistent drive to the music to support the delivery of my words.
Also, I wanted to perform it with just Bass and so I asked Wade Craver to provide this. The result was exactly what I was going for. What you are listening to is an old recording. But still, one of my favorites! I think that BASS has always played a major role in the rhythm of my poetry and so it is my pleasure to present this piece of work featuring and my main bassist, Wade Craver!
