Leo Leo – If I’m Leaving (New Song in the Works)

Transition is often occurring.  Mourning the death of a loved one, moving to a new town, starting a new position within the same company, having a second child, adjusting to one’s body as we age a little more – gain some more weight- or lose the muscle tone we are used to having.  The birth of a first nephew.

In the news this week there are mentions of loss:  American Sniper, Chris Kyle‘s widow, the death of Ben Woolf at age 34, and of course, continued threats of death from the middle east.  We wanted to take a breath to send positive thoughts to everyone who is going through something this week.  And we felt the need to share an unfinished song with you. To share some of our own transition (new songwriting, adjusting to not having a recording studio in the west coast, seeking out Sponsors for sound libraries; missing Sunday brunch with family, seeing faces of people we know at our show, etc).

SoOOOo, we looked through the catalog of songs we are writing to share something thematic – A song about the transition of leaving – and the reasons for it (but introduced with a light melody).

So hear it is: ” If I’m leaving”

It is unfinished. All vocals and acoustic guitar (gasp).  No Sarah Hope on this ditty – not yet.  But we want your opinion – should we finish the song and offer it for sale? Should it be on the next album?  Would you buy it as a single?

Leo Leo is a Boston based band currently spending time in Santa Cruz, California.  Leo Leo is Sarah Hope & Vanessa Wheeler.  Their first album is “Side One” and can be purchased on iTunes or listen to them for Free (add/like them to your station) on PANDORA or Spotify.

LEOLEO U2 appleIt’s been a funny week in media tech news.  i don’t even know what definition of “funny” applies here.  Perhaps, “head shaking” week in media news would be a better expression.

U2 has been put on blast for their deal with Apple and the iPhone 6 (6plus) {read more about that disaster PR if you happen to know what GOOGLE is and how to spell U2 and iPhone or Apple 😉 }.

Bob Lefsetz has written 5 blogs – mostly iPhone related- in the last 5 days.
Millenials are asking such questions as
“Who is U2?” and

“Why does my iPhone bend?”

and a lot of people are saying “who cares?” as 1K Chinese folks line up outside of the Apple store in Legacy Place Dedham.

In Leo*Leo news – we have been talking about how the music industry continues to change.
There are media robots that rule everything and decide what/who gets played and most of it sounds the same.
and even U2, chart-topping politically driven princes of Ireland, got their asses handed to them when all they were trying to do is GIVE AWAY THEIR MUSIC.
Was it arrogant to assume everyone would be happy about the surprise GB’s spent on the new album? Maybe just a litto.

or a lot.
SO
We decided to keep the blog relevant and tongue in cheek this week. In honor of U2

.
We are giving you a choice to receive  FREE MUSIC that we made –

Also, it would be helpful to know – why do you NOT want it? What would you prefer to be given?
Write in and let us know 🙂  because for all the talking about the album – i doubt that SongsOfInnocence is being listened to half as much.
