The Tragically Hip - Bobcaygeon

Lead & backing vocals: Frank Pulumbarit Instruments, programming & mix: Frank Pulumbarit Vocal Mix: Murray Daigle, MDS Recording Guitars recorded in Victoria, BC on an Alverez Artist Series dreadnaught (AKA"The BC Guitar") Written by: The Tragically Hip Background: Thank you to The Tragically Hip for writing this incredible song, and to Gord Downie for singing it so beautifully. May God be with you on your journey Gord. Bobcaygeon was the first song I ever played out - in front of a friend Stephanie, at her house. She didn't laugh me out, so I kept playing. Thank you to you too, Stephanie, for saying it was OK, and for being a friend of the family for so long. Release Date: August 17, 2016

5. Falling (feat. Lesley Robertson) - from the TV Series "Nashville"

Falling (feat. Lesley Robertson) - from the TV Series

Lead Vocal: Lesley Robertson Instruments, programming: Frank Pulumbarit Mix & mastering: Frank Pulumbarit Arrangement: Frank Pulumbarit Original performance: Clare Bowen on the TV Series "Nashville" Written by: Gareth Dunlop & Kim Richey Background: Recorded in Orlando, Florida (thanks Rob for letting me bring your gear down South). Lesley is a huge fan of the TV series "Nashville" and she wanted to give this song a try. We recorded the vocal when we were in Florida with our families and tracked it to a live guitar and not much else. I didn't really like it, so I redid the instruments back in Canada and added the signature piano riff and playing, rearranging the song to something a bit different from the original. Give the original a listen and let me know what you think of this arrangement. As far as I know, this is Lesley's first recording, and she delivers a wonderful performance.

6. Found Me (feat. Sophie Pulumbarit)

Found Me (feat. Sophie Pulumbarit)

Lead & backing vocals: Sophie Pulumbarit Instruments, backing vocals, programming: Frank Pulumbarit Mix & Mastering: Murray Daigle, MDS Recording Background: My second song. A bit more about the Wonder story (girl wishes he actually didn't leave the guy). I have to admit that I love the signature pop cliche. Sophie delivered a great vocal - her first recording! My favourite lines are "You found me, In the middle of nowhere, looking for you everywhere". And, as a nod to how Lara and I knew pretty much right away, "Sometimes, you don't need to wait any longer."

7. To You (Castaway)

To You (Castaway)

Lead & backing vocals: Frank Pulumbarit Instruments, programming: Frank Pulumbarit Mix & mastering; Murray Daigle, MDS Recording Written by: David Price & Frank Pulumbarit Background: This is a collaboration with my good friend David Price. He once wrote a song called "Castaway (Terri's Song)" for & about his wife, and I loved the base melody of the verse. So I started humming it over and over again, and was inspired to try something with it. This is my take, with a few different lyrics, a different groove and new instrumentation. It ended up being different enough that David and I both thought it should be called something else, but with a nod to the original - which is why it's called To You (Castaway). David, thank you for your enthusiastic encouragement to complete this song, and (even more importantly) your friendship. Mixed and mastered by Murray Daigle of course, the wizard at MDS. And here's Castaway (Terri's Song) if you're curious what David's original song sounds like >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7Ezkw5nG-0 Release date: 31 August 2016

Paul Kelly - How To Make Gravy (ft. Rex Eveleigh)

Lead vocals: Rex Eveleigh Backing vocals: Frank Pulumbarit Instruments, programming: Frank Pulumbarit Mix & Mastering: Frank Pulumbarit Written by: Paul Kelly Background: Thanks Rex for a great vocal, and for turning me on to Paul Kelly, who is kind-of a "Bruce Springsteen of Australia". This is a bittersweet Christmas song about a guy who's in prison for something, calling someone and reminiscing about Christmas. Listen to the lyrics.

9. Better Man

Better Man

Lead & backing vocals: Frank Pulumbarit Instruments, programming: Frank Pulumbarit Mix & mastering; Murray Daigle, MDS Recording Written by: Frank Pulumbarit Background: I wrote this about starting again, needing help, asking for it, and getting it. About not knowing how to do something you really want to do, but doing it anyway. "When you look down I know you see me, so I got to go on...you told me nothing good is ever easy". My Mom would say stuff like that. Murray saved the recording by repitching drums, rephasing guitars and adding shimmer everywhere.

The Carpenters (ft. John Bonham) - Rainy Days And Mondays Chillout

Lead & backing vocals: Frank Pulumbarit Instruments, programming: Frank Pulumbarit Mix & Mastering: Frank Pulumbarit Written by: Carpenters, chilled out by Fac15, John Bonham's groove from When The Levee Breaks by Led Zeppelin Background: This song always reminds me of falling asleep in the car when my Mom and Dad were driving home from a late night out. Karen Carpenter's voice is untouchable.

13. Be The One

Be The One

Lead & backing vocals: Frank Pulumbarit Instruments & programming: Frank Pulumbarit Mix & Mastering: Murray Daigle, MDS Recording Written by: Frank Pulumbarit Background: I wrote this song for Lara, about seeing her for the first time in school. I didn't really know what I was doing in that class, or in that school, but I was hoping that being there would lead to something. My favourite line is "Every day it gets a little clearer, that baby you're my whole my whole world...house on a hill and two little girls."

14. Wonder

Wonder

Lead & backing vocals: Frank Pulumbarit Instruments, Programming: Frank Pulumbarit Mix & Mastering: Murray Daigle, MDS Recording Background: Wonder is the first song I ever wrote, on a lark from my friend Jeff. I wrote it in half-an-hour, sharing the lyrics by email with Lara. The joke was that I was only ever going to write one song, so I used every pop cliche I could find and made the line of the hook "Don't wanna be a one hit wonder, around for the summer, baby keep me on your radio." Thanks to Karen for making it a request at pretty much every Sons Of Ringo show with the crazies. It's an amazing feeling when you can play one of your songs on stage, stop singing, and the crowd knows the words. I'm a pretty lucky guy.

15. Bruce Springsteen - The Rising (Live Acoustic ft. the Aurora United Church Choir)

Bruce Springsteen - The Rising (Live Acoustic ft. the Aurora United Church Choir)

In February 2017, I was invited by the Aurora United Church to perform a song for service. We settled on Springsteen's "The Rising" - a song of hope in these unsettled times. I had the privilege of performing with friends in the mighty Aurora United Church choir, headed by the talented Margaret Heney. This is an iPhone recording off the floor, so forgive the pops and "faraway" sounding audio. The only mic was a Shure SM58 with a pop filter, on the lead vocal. Nothing else was mic'd or amplified.

Skinny Jeans

Lead & backing vocals: Frank Pulumbarit Instruments, programming: Frank Pulumbarit Mix & mastering; Murray Daigle, MDS Recording Written by: Frank Pulumbarit Background: I wrote this song in Grand Bend in the dead of winter and finished it in Grand Bend in the heat of summer. A song about a girl who wants to be, can be, and tries to be, but just can't....Sometimes (most of the time) it's best to be yourself and not try too hard to be anyone else. All she seems to hear is "one more thing....come follow me." Release date: 12 February 2016
