Bring it Down is a duo melody pop anthem that encourages one and all to hold onto their creativity and inspiration leading to discovery. The song consists of contrasting sections between sliding strings (the hopeful dreamer) and a driving rhythmic chorus (the make-it-happen realist).
Crazy for You is a grateful love song announcing the amazement of finding your perfect person to spend your life with. The light instrumentation makes you want to get up and “silly” dance.
Forgiveness Sounds Like tries to reconcile anger and accept that we must forgive. “Give me faith to heal and strength to believe," presents a simple yet difficult to obtain life motto.
Do As We Please is a rockabilly duet between Julida and Sean. “Together, close side by side, everything is alright,” acknowledges how much life is improved because they have each other. The ending vocals mimc the style of Snow White.
Mr. Smith is an intense baroque pop song that warns about the bad habits we fail to conquer that eventually develop into bigger problems. The middle section is a unique duet between horn and violin that amplifies the struggles of real life.
Surrounded by Machines is a comical pop song about always being surrounded by machines.
The Answer, is a playful love song that poses the question, “How is it you have the answer to all my questions?” In a relationship one cannot anticipate all of the ups and downs but instead must enjoy the journey.
You’re My Man is a rockabilly swing dance about desperately wanting your boyfriend to propose. The guitar, bass, piano and various percussion drive the song to an exasperated ending.
Lucky Lullaby, a duet between Annella and Brent, is the truest of authentic love songs that confesses dedicating one’s life to each other. Prominent string melodies weave in and out of the vocals while the harp like ukulele gently fills in the accompaniment.
Seasons Turn, the title track of the album, reminds us to hold onto love in our forever changing and accelerating lives. The middle instrumental section is taken over with layers upon layers of symphonic strings.
Wandering Soul reveals the fears of pursuing your soul desire. The chorus states, “You can’t move forward without an effort. You can’t move forward without a struggle.” The bass drum intensifies the second half of the song like a pumped-up heart beat.
Because You’re Mine is a ballad-style love song full of gratitude, “Because you’re mine I’ll be just fine. We’ve got all the time in the world.”
In this Great World the possibilities are endless and much of it is exactly as we want to make it. This Americana rock song’s quiet beginning mimics a child’s simple desires and develops into a full chorus and rich instrumentation representing the future. This song is dedicated to Sean’s god child and nephew Alaric Alter.
Truth EP = Happy, Hopeful Songs
Lightning & Thunder is the authentic love song Sean wrote Julida. He quoted lines from this song during his vows in August 2016 "Any fear or thought of blunder or a burning fire of disaster. Wouldn’t keep me away from you. No I’d never fall or stumble. Wouldn’t keep me away from you, like lightning does to thunder."
All I Ask of You looks at the creepy Phantom of the Opera story. This song describes the desire of Eric "The Phantom" and how he needs Christine.
Night Song is a lullaby for the Syrian Refugee children. Nothing is perfect but we always need hope.
What if we all got what we wanted? Would it even be enough in the end? Clear Cut reminds us to be happy with what we have.
Truth - If the truth was right in front of us would we even know it?
