Below are some songs performed by my band, Mason Alley. I’d like to share them with you. Enjoy!
All music and words by Robert Lane. All songs copyrighted by Robert Lane.
Standing in My Room
A rock tribute recorded over a 14 hour marathon session. The singer alludes to a clown hiding his feelings, like she does. Her last words, “I’d like to kick the clown,” show her frustration with unrequited love and herself.
Do You Think of Me?
A universal question that I tackled in a song. “I’m not talking about rock and roll, not talking about sex. There’s something I’ve got to know, got to it off of my chest. . .do you think of me?"
Beyond the Hillside
A lush melody best suited for a 1940’s nightclub act. She keeps control, until the end when she finally breaks.
Take Me Away
Written on a dark and steamy Florida beach at night, like Beyond the Hillside this one belongs in the smoke-filled black and white noir movies of yesterday. A song purposely void of percussion.
Available only to those on Robert’s mailing list, Midnight on the Water is the mystery behind how Jake and Kathleen met, tumbled into love, and the drastic measures Jake and Garrett undertook to save her life. . .and give her a new identity.
