Dave Stauffer's Girl Scenes
Each human story in each song of Dave Stauffer's Girl Scenes album is taken from the dramatic story in one of the musical screenplays of Dave Stauffer's seven-movie screenplay series, "Sow Y'oats!" In the seven related stories, the same characters are followed from the age of six to their middle age in many dramatic, insightful, religious, romantic, and sexy subplots. The seven screenplays incorporate about eighty original songs that Dave Stauffer has written, and his talented band of singers and musicians has recorded. The plots have a lot to do with dating, maturing, and philosophy dealing with God-and so do the songs they sing. In several of the songs, the singers speak their lines in or during the song, which adds a deep meaning to the words of the songs. By listening to the words and the mood of the music, each listener can feel the emotion of the dramatic event that the song describes in the screenplay. To write his songs, Dave Stauffer has drawn on his many years of singing in church choirs as well as his years of singing, playing bass and guitar, and writing songs in several rock and roll bands that played for years in smoky bars and taverns. Along the way, he acquired a community of outstanding singers and musicians to record his harmonious songs. 1. I Am The Show.
