Released 2017
Captain Blue Records
A fun way of saying "You broke my heart.....again!"
NOTES
How many times have you had your heart broken? Who broke your heart? A lover? A Friend? A relative? I have had my heart broken so many times by all three that I'm beginning to get metaphoric blisters on it. So much hurt in such a humorous way.

Christmas Eve

by Taylor Sappe

Released 2016

Released 2016
Captain Blue Records
Global climate change has caused warming in areas that usually get snow in late December, preventing Santa from using his sleigh to deliver toys on Christmas.
NOTES
Christmas eve of 2015 in Northeastern Pennsylvania was 70 degrees. That was very unusual for an area that normally gets blizzards in late December. I asked myself if this was a fluke or the result of global climate change. Either way, we have to start thinking of new ways for Santa to deliver the toys on Christmas eve. Those thoughts prompted me to write this song.

My intention was to create a song with a playful nature …

This Country style is one of many genres and styles you will find in Taylor Sappe's compositions.
NOTES
This song was written while stuck in traffic. Interstate 81 near Pine Grove, Pa. was under construction and traffic was backed up. I decided to bypass the long delay by going through Pine Grove,, only to find that the main road through town was also under construction. As I sat at a stand still, voicing my frustrations, I realized that my situation was a prime topic for a country song, so I wrote a song that …

A smooth jazz instrumental composition, with piano, upright bass, and drums, inspired by a beautiful day near the Chesapeake Bay in the Baltimore area.

Google It

by Taylor Sappe

Released 2014
Captain Blue Records
Released 2014
Captain Blue Records
"Google It" has become a household term. It doesn't matter what search engine you are using. The common term for any search engine is "Google It".
NOTES
Because "Google It" is a household term, I felt it appropriate to write a song about it. With the fast paced lives we all live in today's society we need to get information quickly...at the speed of life. There is no time to look through an encyclopedia on your book shelf or search through a library full of books on a particular topic. All you need to do is Google it.

I thought Google …

Get Branded

by Kelc

Released 2012
Captain Blue Records
Released 2012
Captain Blue Records
Bridging the gap between old and new country music.
NOTES
Aside from each song telling it's own story, the sequence of songs in this album tell their own story. The album opens with "Old Country Legends", a tribute to Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash. These two artists were most influential in KelC's style, so she makes the statement that this is is her main influence, which she added some modern influences and her own brand of country music.

The story is then already in progress …
