Cello Mello was the first track I showed to the world, though obviously not the first track I had ever written. This song grew by leaps and bounds; I was playing with that rhythmic delay you hear on the opening piano, that suggested a bass, I improvised a melody over that, and then I started thinking what chords and melodies would fit it further.

Initially I had a SampleTank cello on this piece, but John Catchings of Nashville offered to play a real cello part, which I gratefully accepted. The result is infinitely better than what I could program myself.
