Here's some news about the most recent release:

Kirkat Music is proud to release its 4th album, “No Rhyme, No Reason,” by “It Could Happen.” This album is a compilation of songs written over 40 years by Earl Addicks. Many of the songs date back to being written as long ago as the 1970's and some written as recent as last year, but all of them have been arranged and recorded in the last 2 years. So the songs have a wide range of styles and influences all mixed together.

After a simple and short prelude piece, the album opens with a “Beach Boys-like” tune called “Place to Be” that sparks memories of summer fun from years past at Ocean City Maryland. “My Baby,” a high energy rockabilly tune is then followed by “Tomorrow is Today” which smacks of the early recordings from Chicago. “Love Won't Come to Me” is very reminiscent of old Motown tunes, and then the album takes a sharp turn for a very comical jug band song named “Charge It.” The song “Little Green Men” which has some flavors of old Queen material is followed by “A Dream” which some have said reminds them of old Moody Blues songs with the orchestra vibes. The song “Path of Gold” is written about the famous set of paintings of the same name from artist Robert Wood; of which a copy of the winter painting hung in Earl's home as a child. Finally, the album ends with a couple old style jazz tunes that harken back to the 40's and 50's lounge or crooner music. The album ends with a reprise of “Place to Be” with alternate lyrics – which were the original lyrics written before the more “PC” version.

We hope you enjoy this fun collection of songs. The album availble on Amazon, CDBaby, and iTunes, and can be listened to on Spotify. The music and lyric videos are available for your enjoyment on the KirKat YouTube channel.

Many have asked, “What's the story behind the video for ‘Beg, Steal, or Borrow'?”

The story begins with a young girl as we follow her through life. With each verse we see stages of the passing years – a child, a teenager, a mother, a grandmother.

With each chorus we see the tides of political change sweeping across the world as iconic images of different political and social movements are represented both through historical images and iconic images of hands – communism, fascism, socialism, religions, and other social movements. Each new movement comes with leaders who change the fabric of the world. And we see the impact of these world changes on the child we are watching grow up ( political and social changes affect individuals ), and we watch the passing years turn from blue skies to grey.

We see history repeating itself as man seems unable to break out of a cycle of poverty and destruction. Old images turn to new as we see the cycle repeating itself – Arch Duke Ferdinand to Tunisia and the start of the Arab spring, Bank runs of the depression to the run on the banks in Greece, The slaughter of Jews in the 40's to the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East today, and of course the handshake of Neville Chamberlin to Secretary of State Kerry.

And as the song progresses we see the Earth continue to turn…a god view of the world, and the passing of time.

In the end we see the iconic hands one more time; this time representing the idea that only LOVE can solve the problems we face. We cannot legislate morality; each individual must discover and extend love to their fellow man, and embrace a sense of personal responsibility. And so the sun continues to rise each day ( each moment in life ) with the possibilities of a bright and hopeful future, as we see the next generation… our little girl's girl …now reaching out.

Will we do what it takes? Will you do what it takes? History has shown us that more government, more laws, and more regulations, are not the answer. All of these along with various philosophies and religions have been tried…and all have failed. If we do not learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it. Change cannot be forced from the outside, but must happen individually on the inside - one person at a time. If you want to make a change in your world, then start with yourself, and then extend Love to your fellow man.

We've got a job to do, it's all up to me and you, we know that's the only way.
