After ten albums, you would think that I would run out of things to say about myself,...but my life is miracle...and so is your's! You were one of a hundred million sperm who were in a life or death search for one single ovum and life itself...You are THE one in one hundred million who survived! For most of you...you worked so hard to get here only to become complacent with 'average' accomplishments. I'm not knocking 'average', but, don't you think it is God's Will that you become the best person you can be! You don't have to be a rock star to be successful,...but you do have to 'brighten someone's life' to be complete. Every day of your life is special...but,...some of you don't feel special and I don't understand that. Everyone has something that makes them special...Writing songs makes me special...So many people tell me that I'm a 'natural'...If they only knew how much work I put into this occupation...Sure, God gives me the foundation...but I build on to his base by practicing and studying every day. DON'T LET EVEN ONE DAY PASS YOU BY WITHOUT ACCOMPLISHING SOMETHING!!!Some people think that a day of planning is 'getting something done'...They'll plan all day Monday then get up on Tuesday to continue their plan...Most people never realize that 'Planning Must Be Followed By Work'... 'Plans Don't Work Unless You Work'...It is good to have a plan but don't get caught in trying to predict whether your plan will work or not before you even try it! This is called 'The Paralysis Of Analysis'...Just do something and if it is wrong, change it again and again until it becomes right! Thaddeus Carlton 'NEXT' is my NEXT album...Every good song tells a story so I try to tell a lot of stories with my music and lyrics...'You Can't Run From The Night' is the story of how your imagination can get the better of you... The scary nightmares are all in your head. 'All Night Long' will take you back to the Swing Era...The dominate 'rolling bass line' and accompanying brass and violins will make you want to dance! 'Don't Call Me Lover' has a very good chorus or as we refer to it in the business, it has a good 'hook'...Check it out! 'That's The Way You You Dance' and 'The Party Don't Begin (Til I Get There)' are both about different aspects of the party atmosphere...These songs are up-tempo and fun to listen to and get your 'groove on'. 'Circumstantial Evidence' reflects my frustration with so many people being convicted on 'Circumstantial Evidence'! Remember...In America it is 'Innocent until proven GUILTY'. Too many people are getting convicted without proof. The song 'Bring It' focuses on what you need to make it! 'That's Cool' is a blues sounding song that features some rhythmic lead guitar soloing...'Brighter Day' contends that there will be better times tomorrow...'Revenge' is about 'Revenge'...It's a good album...Enjoy!!!! Once again, I would like to thank all of my fans for your support...You make me what I am in the public's eye!!!
