This is No Way to Spend an Evening
– A new arrangement for Sheila K Cameron
I’ve arranged several songs for singer / songwriter Sheila K Cameron, in the past, and was really pleased when she asked me to do this one. Her songs always have a something special in them, and it’s very satisfying creating an arrangement to compliment this.
Her song is a little bit like a slow blues. Sheila sent me the acoustic version she had already recorded, and I began adding instruments to it. After a bit of experimentation we found that a simple strings and piano accompaniment was the best fit.
Once Sheila was happy with the arrangement, I mixed it along with her original recording, and she released it a day or two later.
