Jef Kearns’ latest release sees his flute “Breathe” new life into the song of the same namesake as well as his song “Don’t Make Me Wait” by adding a Chinese flute part performed by Lipeng Wu (written by Harlin Sun.) Both compositions were a part of his Amazon bestseller album, Soulfisticated. “These songs were originally written and recorded at a time when I lost one of the loves of my life.
Don’t Make Me Wait could well have been truncated from ‘Don’t make me wait for you to come back.’ I wrote the melody to this song. Breathe is more of a near resignation to the loss with a slight lingering of longing for past romance.
The vocalist on the original recording (Lisa Michelle) wrote the melody and lyric. I recorded this alternate instrumental version because that is how I perform the song at shows. I also wanted to showcase on record the emotion I attach to it from the situation I was in.”
