CAPTIVATED

I was captivated by you,
fascinated it's true
Nothing I could do,
I fell in love with you
I'm captivated


A Note From Paco:
Many folks have urged me over the past few years to record an album of my original songs. The 12 songs in “Captivated” were only made possible through my collaborative efforts with nine very special people in my world of music. From Chris Billias, a truly superb engineer, producer and pianist; to Robert Knapp, my cousin Philip Marston, Ric Poulin, Robert Weingartz, T-Max, Louise van Aarsen and Gary Pihl who all graciously allowed me to use their combined original song lyrics and/or melodies in recording my own original versions. Also, to my ultra-talented duet partner Lauren O’keefe and once again to my dear cousin Phil Marston, good friend Gary Pihl, and wonderful producer Chris Billias who respectively contributed live background percussion, guitar and keyboard instrumentals. You collectively enrich and encourage me and offer me your combined incredible talents and love. I am forever in your debt. ~ Paco

1. CAPTIVATED 3:31 (Featured Track)

Songwriters: Robert Weingartz, Clay DuBose & Ron Reynolds
Publishing & PRO: StreetSage, BMI

Why “Captivated” is the Lead song and CD Title for my first 12-song originals album (my seventh album overall):

While working in Nashville with AirPlay Direct’s creator Robert Weingartz several years ago, I was sitting in his living room, and knowing the type of music I love he asked me “would you like to hear a song I wrote that I think you might want to sing?”. Sure said I, and was he ever right.

Something about that song “Captivated” just grabbed me emotionally at my very core from the outset. I couldn’t help myself, I was in turn quite captivated. He could immediately sense that I absolutely loved it and subsequently graciously allowed me to record my own version.

Thus “Captivated” forms the emotional love foundation of my first 12-song originals album and I am forever in debt to Robert.

2. Welcome To My Life 4:10

Songwriters: Phillip Marston
Publishing & PRO: BMI 550134591

Takes the lyrical sentiments of Captivated and elaborates on that theme. Lauren joins with me halfway through as the "female figure" in the song and echoes my love theme as we "join together".

3. You Are My Life 3:52

Songwrtier: Paco
Music: Paco & Chris Billias
Publishing & PRO: BMI 550134591

An updated and fully revised version of my original song about my grandchildren. A true Life Blessing.

4. Forever 3:49

Songwriter: Paco
Music: Ric Poulin
Publishing & PRO: BMI 550134591

An original I wrote about Margie, making the point that I believe two souls who are linked deeply in love go forward "forever", even after death.

5. Fly 3:04

Songwriters: Timothy Maxwell (T-Max)
Publishing & PRO: BMI 550134591

A collaboration that is one of my favorite songs on the Album... and just may be one that could eventually be used in a Film venue or commercial, etc... A fanciful reflection on Love, Life, Music and our collective Life Dreams.

6. Dream of Love 3:53

Songwriters: Louise Van Aarsen (music Franz List Liberstraum)
Publishing &PRO: BMI 550134591

A collaboration with Louise who is from the Netherlands. She wrote this the night she returned home from her Father's funeral.

7. Ty 4:23

Songwriter: Paco
Music: Paco, Chris Billias & Robert Knapp
Publishing & PRO: BMI 550134591

An original re-worked and revised song of mine reflecting on what one can feel when a dear family pet passes away. Not many songs out there about dogs. I have sung this a few times in public and people always cry and tell me they love it.

8. With All of My Heart 4:26

Songwriters: Philip Marston & Frank Stewart
Music: Philip marston
Publishing & PRO: BMI 550134591

A collaboration with my cousin Phil (a professional musician for his entire life across the country). This is the first of three faith-based songs. I revised and re-worked the lyrics to add a background angel (Lauren) who echoes the lyrics.

9. Follow Me 4:01

Songwriter: Robert Knapp
Publishing & PRO: BMI 550134591

A collaboration with Bob Knapp, a close friend and consummate song writer of faith-based music, this is interestingly a song sung directly by Jesus himself!

10. Comfort Zone 4:27

Songwriter: Philip Marston
Publishing & PRO: BMI 550134591

The Final Faith-based song on the album it ramps up into honky-tonk piano and transitions nicely into the final two "dance songs" on the album. A second collaboration with my cousin Phil.

11. Come-On Baby 3:26

Songwriter: Paco
Music: Gary Pihl & Chris Billias
Publishing & PRO: BMI 550134591

A Paco original that I wrote to reflect on how much I love to dance with Margie. This is another re-worked and revised song of mine. Note Gary Pihl (from Band Boston) on guitar and my cousin Phil on percussion.

12. Comin' Home 3:26

Songwriter: Paco
Music: Gary Pihl & Chris Billias
Publishing & PRO: BMI 550134591

A final Paco original. Gary Pihl gave me an instrumental background track he liked but hadn't yet used for Band Boston and asked if I wanted to try to put lyrics to it. He said it came to him while he was recently touring with the Band.

I added the lyrics to reflect on perhaps an older "more mature" member of a national touring band who was past the groupie stage and could only think about how much he wanted to get back home to his wife.

That's Gary's great multiple Guitar layers and also my cousin Phil again adding the live persuasion tracks.

13. Bonus Track: Paco's Impossible Dream 5:16

Songwriters: Joe Darion, Mitchell Leigh
Publishing: Helena Music Company

I wished to include this cover song, along with the other 12 "originals" as to me it exemplifies what this Captivated Album, and in fact my other six previously released albums is all about...my own "Impossible Dream"...to share my music with the world.

Special Thanks

To all of you who gave so willingly of your collective expertise and talents, to help make this Paco Album of originals a musical blessing in my life. I can only sincerely thank ou with my heartfelt respect and love. ~ Paco
