60s Slow Dances

June 19, 2019

There is something about that classic 60s sound that breathes magic into any slow dance. We first realized this upon recording our epic DAYDREAM BELIEVER video a couple of years ago. There was a softness to the songwriting, an intelligence in the lyrics and a majestic beauty to the structure.


From The Beatles to The Temptations, this epic decade was truly the birthplace of modern music. Where the unrivaled musicianship of the early 20th century merged with modern recording technology and instruments creating new dazzling heights.

Every one of these songs is a time-tested favourite that continues to make people of all ages happy. Ranging from the crooners of the early 60s, the surf-rock that would follow, groovy pop songs of the mid-60s and the psychedelic rock of the late 60s to the Motown that was there all along, there is something here for everybody.
