Our good friend Hopeless (aka Ryan Echaus) who I previously wrote about here, has been hard at work. Penning a new song "Tears Are Not Enough", doing an eerie video cover of the 80's classic "Somebody's Watching Me" by Rockwell, plus starting a new website and new facebook page. Glad he's on the ball cause this guy's got talent! Add him up and keep it up son!
Here's a funny tid bit he sent me of how his new song came to be. Lol! Gotta put a smile on your face.
'So I was flying first class as I usually do, and of all people Martin Fry sat down next to me. For those of you who don't know Martin Fry, he is the lead singer of ABC. At first I was not to pleased. Obviously he knows who I am and I really didn't want to be bothered at all. I missed my connecting flight back to Hawaii and was stuck at the airport's first class lounge for at least a half an hour. Grueling, I know.
I tried my best to cover my face but within the first five minutes of sitting down he recognized me. The last thing I need at this point is praise, I'm only human for crying out loud. Needless to say after we got to talking we both thought it would be a good idea for me to put a new spin of one of his songs. He told me that he felt I could put down the anger and torment that he was looking to capture in "Tears Are Not Enough" and being a fan of the song myself, I said, "Yo Martin, no doubt. Let's do this shit son!".
In the end, I flew him back to my studio in Miami and 2 months later, we give you "Tears Are Not Enough", the hopeless version. Enjoy!'
