about

On this collection of songs, I went back to my personal catalogue of original material and joined forces with friends from all over the world (Spain, Chile, Brasil, UK & France) to create an eclectic album full of all time references from The Beatles, 70's rock, 80's funk-pop, jazz and reggae to classic songwriting. This work tries to emulate old LP releases where all songs were contained in 40 minutes or less and the focus rested on song crafting rather than the pristine production of the current "digital" times. Nevertheless it was recorded using digital technology and it is the first album in the history of music to feature a dog as a sound engineer. Seriously.

MUSIC features the singles: "Red Car", "Magic" & "Life On A Bus"

The tracks “Magic”, “Sunday” & “She’s Lonely” were Commended Entries at the UK SONGWRITING CONTEST in 2015 on the Rock, Singer-Songwriter & Acoustic & Folk categories respectively.

Thanks to:

Family and Friends, for everything...

The people, places and memories that inspired the songs.

Fans all over the world, for being with my music and for being part of it.

Miguel Gomis, por seguir siendo mi maestro, mi luz y mi guía. Por vivir en mi música.

All the musicians I've played with and listened to as they did, are and always will be influencing my music.

All the musicians that wanted to participate on the project but, for one reason or another, just couldn't make it this time.

Nikolas Sodiant for your immense generosity and talent and for believing so passionately in such a little adventure making my music heard in all corners of the Earth....

Fernanda Balata for your voice (and being my voice) , your talent, your songs, your musicianship and the many years of sharing without prejudice or fear.

Michael Rodwell for your beautiful phrasing, almost as beautiful as your soul, for opening your songwriting treasures at your home a few years ago and the lessons in life and happiness.

Cristóbal Berrù por hacerme partícipe una vez más de tu increíble familia y por tu generosidad musical sin límites.

David Torrico por hacerme sentir músico de nuevo en aquellos momentos en los que rendirse era lo más fácil y por tu constante ejemplo: a tí iré...

Ian Salmon for making me a better musician, for giving my song "Magic" the best guitar solo I have ever listened to and because this project is half yours.

Welcome To The Trip....See you all at the next station!

This album is dedicated to the future.
And to YOU.

Love & Music,


Luis Cano

Track Name: Luis Cano, Ian Salmon, Cristòbal Berrù - Call Me
So that's the horns
And it's about to get funky y'all...Welcome To The Trip..ow!!

Don't you drag it if you love me
Call me
Give your body what it needs to
Show me

That you want me too
That you will be good
That you know this tune
Take me to the Moon

Call me (ring, ring) x 4
Call me

There's no room for your confusion
Call me
I can be more than (an) illusion
And show you

That I need you too
And I think I could
Make you happy soon
Take you to the Moon

Call me (ring, ring) x 4
Call me
Track Name: Luis Cano, Ian Salmon - Red Car
Do your reggae thing, Mr Salmon.....
Oh yeah!

Chorus:
(Take the) Red car
I'm ready to drive it now
(Take the) Red car
I'll follow the road to you
(Come on) Red car
Talking about tonight
(Take the) Red car x2

Don't you remember
When we were very young?
Your mother never showed up
But your papa did a couple of times
You shared the same blue eyes
And you both broke my heart

Chorus

Baby, baby, tell me
Why we never kissed under the sun?
I want you, want you so much now
I never, never knew someone so fine

Oh, that's fine too....
Keep it going...uh!
And again now! Oh, yeah, oh...

Life was so easy
Our love was real and strong, oh yeah
They said: "Is she now the man?"
Stupidity from those that we left behind
We shared the same feelings
How come that can't be right

Chorus
Track Name: Luis Cano, Ian Salmon - Not My Baby
She used to be the one
That kissed me every night
She used to be my baby
She used to be my morning sun

And now I feel she's lonely
And now I feel she's far
She used to be my baby
But I made her run tonight

Chorus
Now she is not my sweet baby
No, no, she's not, my, my baby x2

She used to be my lover
She used to be my friend
She used to be the woman walking always by my hand

She used to be my secret
She used to be my dream
She used to be my the first one when I needed company
(Now I want her company)

Chorus
Track Name: Luis Cano, Ed Watson, Ian Salmon - We Both Know
Why am I still thinking of you?
Maybe we both know
How come you seem now so far?
I've never said goodbye

I don't care about our life
I don't care about the friends that we have lost
I don't care about you anymore
I don't care about you anymore

Why am I still feeling the same?
Maybe we both know
Is this the thing that you want?
This kind of: "Well....you know.."

I don't care about the sadness
I don't care about the places where we lived
I don't care about you anymore
I don't care about you anymore

Why am I still waiting for a call?
The phone is on the wall
Why don't you go and do something
Or is your fear so big?

I don't care about the money
I don't care about the tears that we both spent
I don't care about you anymore
I don't care about you anymore
Track Name: Luis Cano, Nikolas Sodiant, Fernanda Balata & Michael Rodwell - Life On A Bus
You were standing
I offered you a seat
Didn't you see me
Or didn't want to see?

Life goes on a bus
How come you don't care? x2

Outside is raining
Umbrellas on the floor
A child is crying
That wasn't in your book

Life rides on a bus
How come you don't care? x2

If I had a pillow
I would fall sleep here right now
If I was a good boy
Running back to mum
If I was somewhere else again
(Life goes on a, life goes on a bus)

Right here, right now I
Find strangers everywhere
I wan't to be nice
Or am I very scared?

Life goes on a bus
How come you don't care?x2

Eternité du silence
Dans ma tête ś entêtent
De voluptueuses volutes indécentes
Près de moi une vieille dame toujours séduisante
Frissonne sous les coups de langue
De son fougueux amant

Les mots parfois parlent peu à l'esprit
C'est l'horizon qui nous lie
Volutes...voluptueuses volutes
J'en ai rêvé souvent
Au hasard d'une route ,un chemin

C'est aujourd'hui l'heure enfin
Ou l'éternité se conjugue au présent
Ici et maintenant
Maintenant...
Si tu me vois enfin...
Track Name: Luis Cano, Fernanda Balata & Michael Rodwell - She's Lonely
She's lonely
She's all alone
And yet she has too much to live again
She's pretty
She's wonderful
But yet she has to learn to love herself

She's lonely
She's lonely

She's broken
But in one piece
She has to paint the picture with her hands
She dances
But does not move
Her life should be a concert every day

She's lonely
She's lonely

She's lonely
She's all alone
And yet she has a brand new open door
She's lonely
She's all alone
And yet she has to learn to live again

She's lonely
She's lonely
Track Name: Luis Cano & David Torrico - Sunday
Something inside of my shoe
Makes me feel so sad
There we go, I guess I'm falling
I took a picture last night
Now I don't see the point
But take a look: she looks so pretty

Chorus
Falling tears from my eyes
I think this love was true
Baby, is Sunday

Will you come for your things
Or will you pick me up?
We could talk; we never did it
Just pretending that we
Were living just a lie
Since you've gone
I want to fix these...

Chorus

Who's living under my skin?
If both were just a lie
Tell me why do I still love you
What's running wild just so fast
'cause when I look it's gone
What's the time? I think I'm older

Chorus
Track Name: Luis Cano, Ian Salmon - Magic
I wonder how did we stop the war
There's a blue sky and kisses under the sun
It must be magic, magic it must be

I wear the clothes that you left behind
They suit me fine (like) another glass of wine
It must feel (like) magic, (like) magic it must feel
Magic, magic, it must feel

I'm not your son, you are not a friend of mine
Still through all we're living with one mind
It must be magic, magic it must be

Grab my hand, cry baby, I don't care
I know we're happy and it seems we're never late, oh no!
It must feel (like) magic, (like) magic it must feel
Magic, magic, it must feel
Track Name: Luis Cano & Michael Rodwell - I Can't Believe That You Are Finally Coming
I can't believe that you are finally coming
You should know you'll find me here ready for you
My love, from now on
I can't be sad
I should be glad
To have another song to sing to

You and I will be practising soon
How to stay always in tune
And I will, and you will, 'cause we will
Play every day
And I will, and you will
'cause I can't believe that you are finally coming so soon...
