Nothin’ To Lose (Will George) - The collection gets off to a rockin' start with this psychobilly-noir story of boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy murders girl and her lover in a jealous rage, gets chased in a car by police, and plunges to his death in a fiery crash.

I’m Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down (Earl Randle) - The 70’s soul classic is given new life with a funky groove and powerful vocals.

Cutting Room Floor (Will George, Jon McGrath) - A timely tale of the dark side of Hollywood. Danceable 80’s pop-punk energy belies the dark lyrics of an aspiring starlet who gave everything she had, literally.

Cowboy Man (Will George) - Hick-hop meets Reggae on this song about a little green Martian who just wants to be a cowboy.

Queen of California (Will George) - Country-soul saga inspired by the life of legendary singer-songwriter Jackie DeShannon.

You Were Never Mine (Delbert McClinton, Gary Nicholson, Benmont Tench) - This emotional cover of the Delbert McClinton song is destined to become the definitive version of this classic soul tune.

Brand New Cadillac (Vince Taylor) - Echoes of X resonate on this fun take on the hot rod/rockabilly classic.

Dancing With Angels (Will George) - Psychedelic story of a man with multiple personality disorder and the woman who stalks him. Soaring, multi-tracked vocals brings to mind Chris Isaak and Roy Orbison.

Winter Is Near (Harvey McCormick, Richard McCormick) - Inspired by Vancouver’s downtown, this is a true tale of homeless street kids mixing with porsches and mercedes.

I’m Alive (Jon McGrath) - Funky blues about obsession and lost love.

Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down (Kris Kristofferson) - Classic country ballad is given a celebratory gospel performance.

Bad Romance (Germanotta, Khayat) - Bonus Track gives Lady Gaga’s catchy tune a western surf treatment.
