about

Soon after purchasing my first smartphone (an android) I learned that Garageband was available on the iPhone. I knew I HAD to HAVE ONE. Sadly, it wouldn't be until my contract was up that I could actually afford one. Within a few days of getting the iPhone I was working on the first tracks.

My initial thought was to do everything on the phone. Recording, mixing, mastering, etc, but I quickly realized that was not very practical, and decided I'd use the phone as the primary instrument/recording tool and do final mixing/mastering on the computer.

There are some vocals that were done via computer, as well as some instruments added here and there for color, but the bulk of it was done on an iPhone (a 4s, to be specific). On "Promise Not to Tell" almost everything was done on the phone. No additional instruments were added, only mixing and mastering done on computer, but I wanted more variety that what I was able to achieve on that song, so I moved to Plan B.

I hope you enjoy listening to these songs and it opens your eyes to the possibilities you may be carrying in your pocket right now.

Sincerely,
Chad Taylor

Track Name: Promise Not to Tell
Hey there, sweet thing, where are you going?
You look like someone I'd really like to know.
Why don't you come in my house and sit a spell?
I might just give you a drink if you promise not to tell.

Hey there, darling, what'd you say was your name?
Do you like to play any games?
If you'll come in I'll promise not to put you out.

Hey there, sugar, how you like my place?
Let me ask you, how do you taste?
Now that you're here with me, it's you that I must erase.

Hey there, baby, now where are you going?
Our hearts are pumping, yeah, the blood's started flowing.
I only need for an hour or more, then I'll carry you in pieces right out of the door.
Track Name: Leave Me Alone
Stop following me, I'm not gonna pay you.
I don't care what you do, I don't care what you say.
There's a million other people in the world you could bother so please,
Look one of them up.

You know I don't think you're God's gift to anything,
I don't think you're so great, no matter what you say.
I can hardly stand to be next to you.

Where do you get off?
What did somebody say to make you go on about you anyway?
If we were on a cliff I'd push you off just to watch you fall down.

What are you doing next?
I'm all pins and needles waiting for your next move.
What are you doing next?
I'm dying to see what you'll do.
What are you doing next?
Your audience is waiting.
What are you doing next?
Your mediocrity is a blessing to us all.
Track Name: I Keep Going Back
How do you measure success?
What is a win to you?
What sins would you not confess?
When is a lie a truth?

I keep going back,
I keep going back to you.

How high is too high?
How low will you go?
When do you give up your name?
Does rock bottom just sound the same?

I keep going back,
I keep going back to you.
Track Name: You Probably Think
Where it's soft, we don't go.
Where it's quiet, we don't know.
You probably think you have a right to think.

Open your mouth and talk to me, letting the words spill out.
Open your head and say to me whatever comes out.
Open your ears and listen to what you're saying.

I can hardly stand the wait.
You can hardly stand the wait.
Where are you now?

You probably think you got a right to think.
Where it's soft, we don't go.
Where it's quiet, we don't know.
You probably think you got a right to think for yourself.

Open your mouth and talk to me, letting the words spill out.
Open your head and say to me whatever comes out.
Open your ears and listen to what you are saying.

Where it's soft, we don't go.
Where it's quiet, we don't know.
You probably think you got a right to think for yourself.
Track Name: You Will Love Big Brother
This is our way to control,
another method to control.
This is our way to control,
Another way to control you.

Look behind you what you'll see is love.

This is our way to control,
another method to control.
This is our way to control,
Another way to control you.
One more way, One more day.
