about

Shady Maples Berkeley, California

Shady Maples debut 2012 album is soulful and explosive, gritty and melodic. They wrote, arranged, road tested, produced and released it independently, demonstrating influences from rock to Americana, reggae and Latin. It rises to deep heights and settles into a spacious melodic equilibrium. The SF Chronicle describes Owen Roberts' lyrics as "visceral" and the sound as "perfectly Californian." ... more

Track Name: New Paltz Waltz
Darling, let's take a ride
out to the west bank of the Hudson River tonight
There we will find
a reason to smile again
in an old and stubborn town
ahead of its time

I'll stand by your bedside
if ever you become sick
Long as life is mine to live
next to you I'll spend the rest of it
and I'll leave you all that I have
if ever I should die
Let's be a live tonight

Was it enough to say that I love you like the stars
Like a dusk red moon
Like a ballad on a hollow guitar
You and I've waited
for this moment so damn long
I know you've got no plans tonight
and the band, they're gonna keep playing on

Maestro give us a waltz
We'll listen and dance
and hold up our hearts
high over the green trees of New Paltz
Maestro bless your soul
your heart is young
and wisdom is old as love
and we all know how to love

Our hearts are pounding one, two and three
Oh darling would you care to dance
the New Paltz Waltz with me tonight

Darling, let's take a ride
out to the west bank of the Hudson River tonight
There we will find
a reason to smile again
in an old and stubborn town
ahead of its time

I'll stand by your bedside
if ever you become sick
Long as life is mine to live
next to you I'll spend the rest of it
and I'll leave you all that I have
whenever I should die
