ABOUT SHINE

Shine is the first single out of three of my debut EP called "16". "Shine" is the upbeat happy song I wanted to start with. The goal with this EP is to share with you three very different songs. I hope you will have as much fun listening to "Shine", as we had writing and producing it. Wish you a shiny day!

LYRICS

 

I've been looking girl, all my life,
Praying to find someone like you,
All around the world, all the time,
You're on my mind whatever we do.

And I know that this heart of mine, 
Will never be the same again,
Cuz this ain't like the other times
No this ain't never gonna end

Cuz you make me shine like the sun,
Shine like the moon,
Shine like the stars in your eyes
Girl I wish everyone, had someone like you,
Cuz you light up my life
And you make me shine,
Just like the stars, just like the moon,
Baby forever, you make me shine.

I remember
girl, when we met,
I knew from the start I had to have you,
And if I kissed you first, no regrets,
Just being with you my dream has come true.

And I know that this heart of mine, 
Will never be the same again
Cuz this ain't like the other times
No this ain't never gonna end.

Cuz you make me shine like the sun, shine like the moon,
Shine like the stars in your eyes
Girl I wish everyone, had someone like you
Cuz you light up my life
And you make me shine
Just like the stars, just like the moon
Baby forever, cuz you make me shine like the sun,
Shine like the moon,
Shine like the stars in your eyes
Girl I wish everyone, had someone like you
Cuz you light up my life
And you make me shine.

I wrote Shine with Robert my cowriter. The song was produced by Alexander van Bubenheim. Both reside in Los Angeles. I always have a blast travelling from Northern California to work with these incredible people, and I have no words to express how grateful I am.

- Sal Guglielmi, the legendary bass guitar player, who kindly accepted to play on this EP,
- Julia Stein for welcoming me to L.A as a member of the family,
- Corinna van Bubenheim for her warm welcome,
- David and Ruben for allowing all this to happen,
- Nicholas Bray for helping with the art cover and the music video,
- Vittorio Morini for filming the music video,
- Sean Shevachman for also helping out with the video,
- my family for its support,
- and all those who contributed to Shine!

Shine is just a beginning. Hope you like it!
