This is the latest demo of my song ‘Leave It Alone’, which has been on the back-burner for a long time. It took two days for Producer Mike to pry it out of my hands and turn it into something I felt good about. I knew that there was a good song in there – it was always a favorite when I played it with my acoustic guitar. But as soon as I started mucking with a band feel, it almost always went cheesy…. at least I thought so. After some meandering in the drums and piano areas, I feel like I have made some peace with the song. Add the super-smooth backing double harmony vocals, panned left and right, and you’ve got a poor man’s Steely Dan. It also doesn't hurt that Garry Tallent from the E Street Band makes an appearance on bass.
