Aeone And Rick Springfield Versions Of “Somewhere”
Written by: Jeff Silverman and Aeone
Released: Aeone / Santa Barbara
Released: Rick Springfield / Jeff Silverman From The Vault CD
Aeone version produced by: Jeff Silverman, Palette Music Studio Productions
Rick Springield / Jeff Silverman version produced by: Jeff and Rick
These two versions show how the artist and style can “set the tone” to not only the interpretation of a song, but how the production can be “tailor fit” to two completely different styles of music and artistry. There are many elements that remained constant on both masters and both these version are from the same multitrack.
The original version of “Somewhere,” Jeff co-wrote with Aeone – who also performed the song. Rick Springfield heard it and loved it, then wanted to record it for the “Sahara Snow” album. With a slightly re-worded lyric by Rick and using the basis of the original track Jeff produced, the song was turned into a great ‘Rick’ version of the song. 🙂
Later, “Somewhere” was remastered by Jeff and appeared on the “From the Vault” release by Jeff and Rick.
Jeff and Aeone’s original song, was also the featured love theme for ‘Michael and Laura’ on the hit NBC series “Santa Barbara.”
