Here is a sample from a recent vocal project.  
Emily Bednar is singing to a pre-recorded CD. 
She sings two Classical songs and two Broadway songs. 
This is the title track "For Good" from the musical Wicked
* We double track Emilys vocal at the end of the song















-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


These two songs were written by Devin Weston and Jim Manfre.  Devin's lyrics and vocals, I wrote and play all the music.

This project "came to be" when Devin sent me a recording he made on his I-phone in Arkansas.  He sang a song he wrote into the I-phone and later emailed the vocal recording to me in Illinois.  I cut and pasted it into a workable tempo and then layered the music tracks around it.



                      "Long Hard Road"







                     "Love You Like Mine"









​--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

​Nola Dorweiller (my niece) sings "The Climb".   I played all the instruments for the music track and Nola is singing the lead and backing vocals.




-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My wife Joyce wanted to record "The Green Green Grass of Home" for an old friend.  Once again I played all the instruments for the music track and Joyce is singing the lead vocals.  Our niece Katy and I sang backing vocals.






Thanks for listening!

Here's a couple other new recordings...
"Willin'" by Jim Manfre and the Invisible Band
The Nov 2018 Remix of "Una Noche de Armor". All music by Jim Manfre and his Invisible Band featuring the beautiful voice of Maurin Aguirre.
I have a little vacation home (mobile home) in Arkansas on my cousins fishing resort.  I've been going there for most of my life.  When I first heard The Chigger Song song I thought it seemed a little autobiographical (LOL) and I just had to record my own version.  The original version was written by the "No Refund Band", from Hot Springs Village.  This version of "The Chigger Song" is my own creation (all the music and vocals are me).  
A little loosey, goosey and meant for fun.   Please note, I have nothing but love and respect for so many of my friends in The Natural State.  I hope you enjoy!
