About Arnie Davidson - New Lamps for Old

I call my band New Lamps for Old. From the northeast USA, not far from NYC, in a sleepier town, I write about moments. My moments and yours.

Capturing those fireflies in a bottle and then releasing them as tune and texture. More than a melody.

A mood.

A reflection.

Easy listening memories of love, life and longing.

About Arnie Davidson - New Lamps for Old

I call my band New Lamps for Old. From the northeast USA, not far from NYC, in a sleepier town, I write about moments. My moments and yours.

Capturing those fireflies in a bottle and then releasing them as tune and texture. More than a melody.

A mood.

A reflection.

Easy listening memories of love, life and longing.

Thanks for your outpouring of support. Working on my album release in summer 2021.

So, grab your favorite beverage, get comfy, and find all the ways my music story intersects with your life. Your world.

Moments are all we have. Thanks for listening and leaning-in to my music.

Love ya, Arnie

Spring Greetings from New England, USA!

Working on recording some new tunes that have been incubating during the downtime of 2020. And, working with some amazing local musicians at a rustic, in the woods, log-cabin studio.

Environment can make all the difference, and this place is warm and comfortable from the moment that you set foot inside. Eric Lichter, the owner and producer, is multi-talented on nearly every instrument - drums, bass, rhythm, lead. My ego isn't big, and I just love treating my song-children to great musicianship.

I remember having a summer love when I was way younger, and putting the rest of life, home, school, everything, on hold - consumed with one small corner of life. Maybe there's a bit of this in all of us - blurring the familiar and mundane in favor of the sensory-rich. In this case - dreams.

Hope you like! Thanks for your amazing support and comments.

Love ya, Arnie

Good morning from Connecticut 3 rd day of snow. It's getting a little old.

When I was recording these tracks, I had the opportunity to work with Charlie DeChant, playing sax on Full Moon Foolin and Ester Adjuah.

Charlie is nicknamed "Mr. Casual" by his bandmates at Hall and Oates. He is famous for his sax solos in their hits - ManEater, Say it Isn't So, I Can't go for That, One on One.

Here's a clip of the Maneater solo
YouTube

I feel humbled and honored to have Charle work his magic on my music. Have a re-listen to Ester Adjuah and Full Moon Foolin to see if you can hear some of those past hits in his groove.

Thanks for Listning!

Love ya,

Arnie

Good morning.

Well, we finally made it through 2020. The new year is a chance to kind of reinvent, I'm thinking.

I'm going back to the studio (which now allows musicians in - a novel idea) to work on another album. I'm working with an amazing bunch of musicians at a small studio, out in the woods in Connecticut, US (about 2 hours from New York City, but a world away from the city life.)

I'll keep you posted on new music.

Finally gathering togther the songs that you've been listening to on N1M into an album. New Lamps for Old.

Here's an iTunes link to the singles:
iTunes

New Lamps for Old is a reference to the story of Aladdin. It's a part of the 1001 Nights or Arabian Nights collection that includes "Sinbad the Sailor" and "Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves."

Anyway, Aladdin had this magic lamp with the genie in it, and while he was away, the evil magician dressed up as a street vendor calling out "New Lamps for Old."

Aladdin's wife was lured by the old man, and decided to trade the dirty magic lamp, for a new shiny (worthless) one. Which was the magicians goal.

Anyway, it seemed like a great story moment, with lots of life lessons buried in there.

My best wishes for a Wonderful 2021, filled with Love and Music.

Thanks again for your amazing support. Your messages keep me going and brighten my day!

Love ya, Arnie
