about

The artist goes by his first name, Saroyan, and his new CD The Gift is a mix of R&B and Pop and carries the same infectious groove that his former band Momma Stud CD Cock-a-Doodle-Doo did. The opening track, “The Sun,” is stunning, as are his vocals, and carries you through a half dozen other tracks that transport your mind, body and soul to a place that is pure heaven. “The Gift” has such a positive vibe, probably because the artist himself has the same open-minded positive and spiritual attitude about life - and it transfers effortlessly through his music. The reason the music has stayed intact is partly because of his co-writer and producer Krandal Crews. Together they wrote, arranged and produced this latest effort, and the results are dazzling.

Track Name: The Sun
The Sun
Written by Ernest Carter & Krandal Crews ©2005

It ain’t easy living this way all the things leaning on my mind
Trying to do all the things that please me I know it looks like I am just wasting time
But I’m going to do all I can to put a little joy back into my world
I’m going to give to my brother man watch the dream unfold

Cause I got the sun I got the moon I’ve got everything yeah I got you
I got the sun I got the moon I’ve got everything yeah I got you

This ain’t the first time I felt this way and I’m sure it won’t be the last
Trying to keep me head together making sure the future don’t catch my past
Heavy burdens lay on me I struggle through the wilderness I struggle through the night
But if I make it to the other side well I know everything going to be all right

Cause I got the sun I got the moon I’ve got everything yeah I got you
I got the sun I got the moon I’ve got everything yeah I got you

You would have to be the kind of girl I never thought I’d see
The kind that would never go away the kind that would stay
I would hope to be the kind of man you never thought I’d be the kind that would never do you wrong leaving you right on your own
I would hope to be the kind of man you never thought you see the kind that would never tell a lie the kind that would stay by your side

It ain’t Easy
Made a promise to the preacher I told the preacher I would do right
That was before I met this creature and this creature she took over my life

Trying to keep me head together making sure the future don’t catch my past
Heavy burdens lay on me I struggle through the wilderness I struggle through the night
But if I make it to the other side well I know everything going to be all right

Cause I got the sun I got the moon I’ve got everything yeah I got you
I got the sun I got the moon I’ve got everything yeah I got you
Track Name: Perishable Jewels
Perishable Jewels
Words & Music By: Krandal Crews ©2003



Lust Lust is a thing for me
Oh I cry for the rebirth of my dreams
I’m an old little boy that bleeds for my fantasies


Testify a feeling so blue
I can almost taste the gift in the witches brew
If only for one day to wait for my drifters escape


(CHORUS)
Sizzling eyes can’t take the perishable jewel
Sizzling eyes can’t take the perishable jewel


Best friend, be a friend, been a friend then again
Secrets destroy the blend
of honesty in our souls to be forever gold
Crimes commit a cheat, dropping bombs on our memories
Shadows keep walking for two no place to recluse


(CHORUS)
Sizzling eyes can’t take the perishable jewel
Sizzling eyes can’t take the perishable jewel


Please give me an afternoon haze
My check stubs just a flight away
Landing so smooth to caress a passionate groove
Well the night has come and gone
The waters have flushed my song down a beautiful tube
where the children sing in tune


(CHORUS)
Sizzling eyes can’t take the perishable jewels
Sizzling eyes can’t take the perishable jewels
Track Name: Getting Along
Getting Along
Words and music by Ernest Carter and Krandal ©2003

It’s all about you and me getting along
It’s all about you and me getting along
It’s all about you and me getting along
You know you all think we’re crazy but boy we aint lazy
Track Name: Living This Way
Living This Way
Words and music by Ernest Carter and Krandal Crews ©2005

I ain’t happy living this way it’s getting harder seems like everyday
Where is the answer well it’s here in the womb
I’m living anger well this is my tomb
And I try to hide it well lord knows yeah I try to fight it but this here what I choose Yeah I try to hide it making peace with myself yeah I try to fight Lay this ragged heart on this tired shelf
I’m growing older with pain in my heart I’m know soldier haven’t you heard me cry
It not easy know but I still go on I feeling weary maybe I’m just not that strong

But I try to hide it well lord knows yeah I try to fight it but this here what I choose Yeah I try to hide it making peace with myself yeah I try to fight Lay this ragged heart on this tired shelf
But something in my mind said you got to keep it together something in my soul said well it’s just a little stormy weather
I ain’t happy living this way it’s getting harder seems like everyday
Where is the answer well it’s here in the womb
I’m living anger well this is my tomb
I’m growing older with pain in my eyes I’m know soldier haven’t you heard me cry
It’s not easy know but I still go on I getting weary maybe I’m just not that strong
And I try to hide it well lord knows yeah I try to fight it but this here what I choose Yeah I try to hide it making peace with myself yeah I try to fight Lay this ragged heart on this tired shelf
Track Name: The Gift
The Gift
Words and music by Krandal Crews 2003

Here’s my Gift to you one more pretty smile
Such an enchantment I feel little wing just flew a mile
I’m not much to see and it might just take a while

I quickly face the moment the daisies stole my eyes

Broke down with lost less words candy cane vengeful smile
Please just believe in me I take care of our soldier’s trial
Come on down three hearts three lovers once upon a friendly smile

I quickly face the moment the daisies stole my eyes

And I hope that you don’t care time is ticking frozen in thought
And I hope that you don’t care and the love has ended convicted and caught
And you know

Switchblade in my pocket as the last door begins to close
Frozen in thought my mind begs to be free life long fantasies
A child is born with no conviction a journey through all the lies

I quickly face the moment the daisies stole my eyes
