Denny Carleton Update  

Hello Everyone 

         Hope you are well and safe.I have like most  everyone else have had all of my activities stopped or adjusted Brenda and I are in good health .We pray every day for all those affected anyway by Covid-19 

 My guitar lessons are now done on line through zoom or Skype or FaceTime.The good thing about that though is I feel quite comfortable with giving guitar lessons on line and now I can teach anyone anywhere.If you are interested let me know 

For those  of you who have Facebook . I do a concert once or twice a week. Go to Facebook and look up my page. They are recorded there so you can see the ones I did. The next one is 4pm April 19 2020. 

 I have two new CDS out Shadowlands that is really produced and arranged with 25 Cleveland area musicians and also Sketches which is the exact opposite, me playing solo doing sketches of half finished songs. Also in May the Choir that I was in  is releasing a two CD live recording of our concert 2019 at the Music Box...All of these CDS are either on or will be on You Tube I Tunes Spotify and wherever you get music now . 

The one good thing about this situation for me, is I have been able to update my website and finish projects.Some of my CDS you can now download directly from me. I have finished the Mass of St Gabriel, complete with lead sheet MP3 files and even a violin part. You can download that directly from my website.The Mass is an official mass approved by the United States Bishops.I have also been streaming  our charismatic prayer meeting and occasionally playing for ST Cosmas and Damian on line and every other week I send some files to FPC of Willoughby for their streamed service. 

Last but not least I have started doing radio again and there is an episode that if you go to my website on Anchor F.M. that if you go to Radio you will be able to hear. 

As I said hope all is well and hope to see you when we get through this.Attached is a free download of a song I wrote and recorded with Jack Plusinsky when we were in a band together One Off

If you have any questions or difficulty finding something or have prayer requests email me at dennycarleton@sbcglobal.net. I am surrounded by many praying and caring people so Im serious about the prayer requests. God Bless

Denny Carleton On Spotify 

I have been self publishing my music for many years and have found a niche on Spotify . I have a regular flow of people all over the world who listen to my music . 

Spotify itself ,and CD Baby sends info to Artists on Spotify, on how to increase listens and placement on song lists, therefore earning artists more royalties. 

Spotify and CD Baby suggested  to let people who like my music to click on Spotify and say they like my songs and also click to follow . This would would increase my possibilities of being included on more playlists. 

CD Baby suggested one other thing you could do. Occasionally include one of my songs in one of your playlists They suggested 1 song and only if it legitimately fit in the genre of the list. 

Here is a link link to my artist page on Spotify . When you get to the artist page click on view all  and then just click that you like some of my songs then if you want  follow me and listen to a few if you would like. 

I am excited about this because  the new way of distributing music sure beats the old .Thanks for your  support and thanks for supporting Independent Music. 

                          Cheers Denny Carleton

Do You Call That Love?

Denny Carleton

What do You call those kind of realtaionships that Your not sure of what they are yet.

Its time again to start where we left off Ill balance you balance me no charge no cost Once again we are brought together the seasons have healed all our wounds Ive learned so much you forget so little Its all happening so soon

Do you call that love What do you call that Do you call that love

Youll cry when I tell you I missed you no lover can love like you do Well relax under the sunlight wondering how another year we got through I hear these melodies inside my head Ive got to write another tune Like a love like ouurs will never die it will change rooms

Do you call that love What do you call that Do you call that love

Theres got to be a breakthrough coming somewhere We cant go on this way Dont let the darkness I see around you overtake you Darling Ive got to say If you cant right it then dont you fight it Theres too much living to We cant deny it but neither of us will try it What are we trying to prove

Do you call that love What do you call that Do you call that love

With My Camera I Take Pictures

Denny Carleton

Brit Pop Kinks style with Steve Doman on backing vocals and Greg Coleman drums

WITH MY CAMERA I TAKE PICTURES

With my camera I take pictures solos and strange mixtures
With my camera I take pictures of you

Not a Rembrandt more like Warhol Does a photo become Immortal With my camera I take pictures of you

There's a picture on my shelf 1000 miles away from somewhere else Maybe I need some help. Here's another picture of my self

I take pictures it's part of history its a hobby its a mystery With my camera I take pictures of you Line up birds and squirrels and bees butterflies and owls and that big ole tree If there's no picture in the forest does anyone really see? I take pictures in the park I Try lighten what is dark With my camera I take picture of You With my camera I take pictureS of You

Hurry I Can't Be Late

Denny Carleton

Retro Indie Pop

I wrote the first part of the lyrics speaking about all of us hurrying . My guitar student Hanna Talty, who was a student at Kent State University at the time, said she would really like the song, if there was someone who helped slow things down. Hanna came up with the second part of the lyrics.Hurry I can't be late is the world most of us live in but we have special people or places that hep us slow down. It could be nature or prayer or a friend or a signifuicant other

Glimpse of a Better Place

Denny Carleton

Not pushy just a glimpse all instruments Denny Carleton except drums Greg Coleman

A glimpse of a better place

After chaos a certain type of order even darkness assumes some kind of border moms and dads love their sons and daughters No ones perfect it's good to be reminded, lose it all it's good to go and find it call on me I really wouldn't mind it I'ts a glompse of a better place just a hint of amazing grace

Bouncing balls I have tried to follow leaves my heart feeling sad and hollow, then I learned dont worry about tomorrow When all the walls they come tumbiing down and your friends are nowhere to be found call on me and ill be coming round It's a glimpse of a better palce just a hint of amazing grace

In the darkness still there shines a light , there are streetlamps in the darkness night two wrongs never make a right If this world gets blown all asunder and the storms are mixed with hail and thunder underneath still is awe and wonder It's a glimpse of a better place, just a hint of amazing grace

Hold Us Together

Denny Carleton & Randy Klawon

In cart Not available Out of stock

A faster version of Matt Maher's 'Hold Us Together'

I usually do songs my own way. Quite a few people like the way I do this Matt Maher song, so I decided to have my friend Randy Klawon help me arrange it and record it. I am playing acoustic , while Randy plays the rest of the instruments, and Stu Lydah plays drums. I also believe in the sentiment of this song.If you are not loving, everything you do is hollow and is like it says in Corinthians, a clanging cymbal. Below is a link to what inspired Matt Maher and Steve Wilson to write Hold us together
