So Lucky Unplugged Instrumental

by The Ram



In my own words...

In 1991 I moved to NYC to try to make it as an artist, home of the legendary NY School of Abstract Expressionists. I ended up forming a jazz band with a few close friends. This song takes visuals from Alphabet City and Harlem to set the stage for a story of young lovers. In NYC, money may be king, but the underground has always worshiped youth and beauty.

The city was far less tame and more affordable. My people were the countless artists from small towns all over the US who followed their dreams to NYC. We banded together and shared rent in the city's underbelly. The twin towers still stood, it was a time in my life that shaped everything that came later. Broke kids can often be rich in love.

We should all be so lucky to be in our 20s, hungry, and broke...

Trust me.

Nod to the Musicians...

This single release is a doozy, so I'll waste no time and dive right in. A few years back new songs were coming as fast as I could write them down. This is one of the last additions to a 10 song album I was putting together, around the time I was fortunate enough to jam with Marco Savoia. He's hands down one of the best bassists in San Diego. You'll recognize Marco from all the kick-ass local bands he's in (Shane Hall, Pink Eye to name a few). He also played on Motor Kine, which I released earlier in 2021.

The first time I played with him, he sported an upright double bass, and I played my National Resonator. He drove the song so hard I thought he was going to kick his boot through the stage floor. Before Marco, my arrangements were guitars, keyboards, drums, and harmonicas. Don't believe me? Look no further than my first album. The local legend, Lee Knight who mixed To Love a Wild Fire, contributed bass tracks on those songs.

Working with Marco is a joy, it's only fitting that the last single I release in 2021 comes from the sessions we recorded together. Marco's virtuosity affected me so much, in the Sessions EP I'm releasing to complement this single I stepped up and played the bass parts.

The single version of So Lucky is a sneak peek into what's coming in 2022.


No lyrics, this instrumental version is for sync audiences and DJs I collaborate with.
