invited my good friend Stewart to Studio.
He is now working for a prominent record label in LA and is the writer of I'm Gonna Be Somebody, No One ELse On Earth, Rose In Paradise, Drift Of To Dream, and many other top 40 songs.
He was sitting on the sofa with a huge smile on his face as he really loves the direction of the band and new songwriting.
I was in the Producer's Chair and every once in a while I would hear in that Carolina accent..."Rey"..."Rey"..."No, I'm not gonna say anything...this is you baby"
I would laugh and wheel my chair to the sofa and he would whisper a suggestion into my ear over the music.
Some worked some didn't but man what a dream come true for us to have this iconic presence and experience sitting right there and telling me "great job man, you got this, you're producing future # 1 songs, proud of you".
Just seeing that smile on his face was terrific for a group of dreamers like us.
Coming out of the slums of Cuba to now having the immense honor of working with industry icons like Stewart, Tom Cheney, Erv Woolsey, Wayne Killius, David Hall, Brian Bonds and everyone that surrounds them is validation to years of hard work for all of us.
Keep on dreaming friends.
