Songwriter Alfred G. Shaheen II Releases Songs For Servicemen And Women Overseas

It is hard for one to be able to imagine the separation from home and family one must feel serving our country in strange and hostile places like Afghanistan and Iraq. La Canada-Flintridge-based songwriter Alfred G. Shaheen II recently released two singles evoking the longing for home and joy of reuniting with those special in our lives.

"The Pieces of My Life" is a poignant pop ballad on how home can call us back after a long time away. With lyrics such as "In my mind I’ve gone back in time/ Where I’ve tried to find memory lane/ Lost inside is a past that’s died/ Only broken pieces remain," the song touches on the pain of separation especially felt by those serving our country. The dreamy country-pop song "A Country Lullaby" on the other hand reminds us of the joy of family, with music and lyrics that transport the listener to the transcendent beauty of drifting off to sleep to the sight of loved ones.

Said Alfred Shaheen, "While the verse and bridge of 'The Pieces of My Life' were written in 1988, the music of the chorus and the lyrics were written in 2010. Immediately after the balance of this song came to me, I remember how I was deeply struck by the thought of our servicemen and women overseas, and the effect the meaning of this song might have on them. Of course, the lyrics of 'A Country Lullaby' represent the very loved ones to whom they long to return."

In honor of our servicemen and women and their families, Alfred Shaheen will donate 25% of the profits from digital download sales and streams of "The Pieces of My Life" to various top-rated Veterans' organizations like Wounded Warriors Family Support, Southeastern Guide Dogs and Homes for Our Troops.

Uploaded to online radio service Jango in the final days of 2017, the song quickly started garnering fans, landing both songs on the platforms Top 100 PopScore. Both, the "The Pieces of My Life" and “A Country Lullaby” feature the soulful voice of Scottie Mitchell. The songs can be found on all major music services, including Spotify, iTunes and CDBaby.
