“Rabbits” – lyrics

by on Mar.03, 2017, under Lyrics

“Rabbits”

What were you thinking of, my love…
when you broke my heart?
I guess it never occurred to you…
the sky would fall apart.

What did you think?
And what were you thinking?
What did you think?

What were you thinking when you called
from a thousand miles away?
And I don’t don’t know where you are
but I can hear the sound of trains.

What did you think?
And what were you thinking?
What did you think?

What were you thinking love was then?
A word to say out loud only when you want something
like rabbits from the clowns.

What did you think?
And what were you thinking?
What did you think?

I sold my soul for you.
I spent my gold on you.
Committed crimes untold for you.
If I may be so bold….
What did you think?
And what were you thinking?
What did you think?

“Far” – lyrics

by on Mar.03, 2017, under Lyrics

“Far”

Whenever the wind blows
I hear a whisper of your voice.
Long after shadows,
thoughts of you remain.
Whenever the sun shines
I feel the warmth of you close.
And when I feel the rain…
The rain upon my face…
I long to be in your embrace.
Whenever the wind blows.

“Home” – lyrics (Fernando Perdomo)

by on Feb.28, 2017, under Lyrics

Home

Hell No.. I won’t go…
Please don’t you take my home.
I’m far… all alone…
Please don’t you take my home.

Home… home is wherever you are.
Home can be out in the stars.
Home can be Venus or Mars.
Home can be broken or safe…
and even if I lose my home
it will be standing tall
because every time I close my eyes
home will be safe in my mind.

Heart vs wrecking ball…
please don’t you take my home.
Bank man don’t take it all…
please don’t you take my home 

Home… home is wherever you go.
Home can be out in the stars.
Home can be Venus or Mars.
Home can be broken or safe…
and even if I lose my home
it will be standing tall
because every time I close my eyes
home will be safe in my mind.

“Shadows In A Jar” – lyrics

by on Feb.27, 2017, under Lyrics

“Shadows In A Jar”

Forest dwellers told of storytellers
and things they saw
like remains of a war on a star.
Bones in black robes
dragging burning crosses through the sky.
They glide on moonlight roads
I’ll take a midnight ride.

I wonder why…
I wonder why we shed our wings at birth…
to want the sky and walk the earth.
You silly humans standing shaking
in the dark.
We’ll take your souls,
heaven knows,
they’re only shadows in a jar.

“Snowman” lyrics

by on Feb.27, 2017, under Lyrics

“Snowman”

Oh, i’m going down to the sea.

hey, the night is long without her.

the sun’s asleep in her eyes and i’m asleep on the sun.

what is life?

a dream in a song.

love is long.

love is long.

Oh, i’ve been a man for a year.

hey, don’t say you know how i feel.

i’m cold and miles from my home.

rain is a good friend of mine.

what is life?

a dream in a song.

love is long.

love is long.

Oh, she made a man in the snow.

hey, she said it looked just like me.

i feel like that man today.

hey, lord, please take my life away.

what is life?

a dream in a song.

love is long.

love is long.

“Like Magic” – lyrics.

by on Feb.27, 2017, under Lyrics

Like Magic

Some things stay some disappear
And the reasons are never clear.
Life is like magic.
Life is like magic.

See the woman sawn in half.
See the children and how they laugh.
What is illusion?
What is real?
How do I know how to feel??Life is like magic.
Life is like magic.

Seasons change, we all know that.
But how does a rabbit live in a hat?
Life is like magic.
Life is like magic.

And I believe in magic.
And I believe in love.
Don’t want to know the secrets…
Don’t want to spoil the fun.

Life is like magic.
Love is like magic.
Life is like magic.
Love is like magic.

ACR Management

by on Jan.24, 2017, under Gigs, Photos, Random Stuff

I am pleased, proud and honored to announce that I have been added to the ACR Management (Burbank, California, USA) roster of artists… and my music career is now managed by that agency. ACR will assist in furthering my career and this is a wonderful beginning to (hopefully) a long and fruitful relationship. There are many wonderful things about this… the most-wonderful being that Ann Rinaldi will be managing me and she is an incredible person who has already, within 2 days, got me involved with something that I am thrilled to be involved with. I will be making an additional announcement on that very shortly. Since this is all so new… my bio, photos and peripheral information is in the process of being transferred over to ACR by me and once it’s all posted on the ACR site, I will provide a link here for those of you you care to have a look. I am happy and excited about this and although this news is attached to me, it’s really the best thing that could have ever happened to my songs. I care for my songs in the way you care for your children and loved ones and everything I do with and for my songs is intended to be for the enjoyment of all who read this announcement and people around the world who may hear them someday. Thanks to all my dear friends and associates who have supported me along the way and made it possible for me to reach this juncture in my musical career. New album on the way!!! I hope you like it. Thanks so much. – ek. 23 January 2017.me studio 1.19.17

Life On Mars – featured artists – Siren radio 107.3fm/England 22 January 2017

Tracey Edges – Sunday Girl (no.167) 22/1/17

Transcript featuring Artist of the Week: Life On Mars

1:04:20

It is now time for the Sunday Girl Artist of the Week. Who is a little bit old and a little bit new. Not age wise. After seeing that I played previous Sunday Girl Artists of the Week, Fernando Perdomo, fellow musician and songwriter Earl Kayoss and you spell that K-a-y-o-s-s, from New York got into, excuse me to say that he was in a separate project along with Fernando called “Life On Mars.”

The band “Life On Mars” consists of Fernando Perdomo, who is both producer and artist on vocals and playing almost all instruments. Earl Kayoss who is a songwriter and artist on vocals and their special guest is Durga McBroom on lead vocals. As the project “Life On Mars” they have released a 10 track album called “Far” and both of the songs I will play today are from this album. The 1st is “Oblivious.”

1:10:02

That was “Oblivious” by “Life On Mars.”

Songwriter and musician Earl Kayoss has written over 700 songs and his website is called, rather appropriately Over700Songs.com and that is the number 700. Earl says that the lyrics are the part that are the most important to him and with each of his songs he wrote the lyrics first with the music coming out of the lyrics. Earl is a registered songwriter and his publishing company is “Vindictive Cat Ltd.”

Fernando Perdomo, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and in demand producer. Originally from Miami Beach, Florida is now based in Los Angeles, California. Whether working on his solo projects or with other musicians, he is highly supportive of other musicians and respected by them. Fernando owns and operates “Reseda Ranch Studios” where he has also had success creating music for film and TV. Fernando’s website is FernandoPerdomo.com.

The guest member of “Life On Mars” is Durga McBroom. A vocalist from Los Angeles who is particularly known for her 3 world tours with “Pink Floyd” and her solo career with “Blue Pearl.” You can find Durga at Facebook/DurgaMcBroomHudson and on Twitter as MrsDurgaMcBroom.

The final contributor to “Life On Mars” is Ruti Celli on vocals and cello. Israeli born, classically trained cellist Ruti began her musical journey at the age of 8. She moved to the USA in 1997 to complete her degree in cello performance. Ruti collaborates with singer-songwriter and guitarist extraordinaire Fernando Perdomo. Together they are the improvisational duo “Fern & Celli” currently receiving local recognition as a unique music act. They are about to release their debut album in the winter of 2017. Ruti’s website is RutiCelli.com and that is R-u-t-i-C-e-l-l-i, RutiCelli.com. I hope I said that right. The 2nd track that I will play for you today is the rather lovely “Someday Maybe.”

1:16:47

I do like that song. Sing along to that one. That was “Someday Maybe” by the Sunday Girl Artist of the Week “Life On Mars.” “Life On Mars” was formed in 2014 from a fateful collision between 2 worlds. Legendary producer and musician Fernando Perdomo and prolific songwriter Earl Kayoss.

The 2 tracks played today were from their debut album “Far” which was released in May 2015 which you can find at LifeOnMarsTheBand.Bandcamp.com. That is LifeOnMarsTheBand.Bandcamp.com. There is a new album currently in production due for release this year. Here is a preview track called “Technology.” You can keep up to date with all this creativity at EarlKayoss.com. That is E-a-r-l-K-a-y-o-s-s. EarlKayoss.com or at Facebook.com/LifeOnMarsTheBand Earl is on Twitter at Over700Songs.

Here is yet another previous Sunday Girl Artist of the Week, Barb Jungr with her reinterpretation of the very aptly titled David Bowie classic “Life On Mars.”

“Hourglass”

by on Jan.19, 2017, under Lyrics

“Hourglass” 

I’d rather see you in the morning

than a thousand suns on the rise.

Kiss your fingertip for me, 

then dry the tears from your eyes.

I’m so far away and right by your side.

I’d rather see you in the morning 

than a thousand suns on the rise.

I feel you pass through me

as clouds collide with clouds.

Your spirit is lonely and it’s winter down south.

In whispers it told me 

the hourglass never made a sound.

I’d rather see you in the evening 

than all that’s in the heavens bound.

Write your name on my window

in fog of breath on shattered glass.

Seal your sorrow in a jar there…

The fate of dreams is… they cannot everlast.

They trip on time, they fall behind, they’re gone so fast,

beyond the reach of everyman.

I’d rather see you in the morning

than a thousand suns on the rise. 

I’d rather see you in the evening 

than all the stars in the endless skies.
