Hi I’m Don,
Living Beings are, Don Bishop and Marty Splawn. We have finally finished recording our new Album. It’s called Living Beings – Climate Control. It has taken almost a year and a half of Thursdays, but the recording is finally done. This is kind of a Studio Project - Album. There are only two of us, so it would be kind of hard for us to play live right now. But if people like our songs and I can find band members to play Marty’s music, who knows… Marty plays all the instruments and composed the music for the songs. And I wrote all the lyrics, except on Is it True Lord, which was a Poem written by Kristina Hensley. Marty played and recorded the music and recorded my vocals and we mixed and remixed the songs together.
Marty and I have worked together since about 1997 on and off. We have done several different styles of music, from 60’s - 70’s - 80’s - 90’s Rock & Roll, to almost Rockabilly to almost Metal:) Including a couple of acoustic songs. Our first set of songs are on the DonSongs Album. You can go to DonSongs.com to check them out and download them too. I have really enjoyed our sessions and hope you enjoy the songs we came up with too. Marty has been playing music since he was a teenager and teaches guitar, bass and drum lessons. I am pretty much a late bloomer. I always wanted to write and sing, but I didn’t think I had the talent and thought I was too shy to sing in front of people when I was younger. Now I don’t care, I just want to make music!:) I almost had a real band going back in about 95’. We practiced every week for about 6 months, but we never played out. Everyone got married and busy, so now there’s just no time for them. I on the other hand have allot of time, and would still love to start a “real band”. Right now though, I’m just really glad to have been able to record these songs and realize some of my dream:) Hope You like our Songs.
