Treetops, theme song for Helping Angels movement
Treetops was originally composed as a music box tune for Poesy’s jewellery collection Poez in 2009. Its lyrics were written and the song became a song about kindness, meant as a theme song for Poesy’s volunteer movement Helping Angels.
The song arrangement was by Godfrey Wang in London in 2010, and a backing track was produced ready for studio recording since 2011.
The current track that is being circulated on Youtube was the rough recording made in 2011. A final version is yet to be made.
Godfrey Wang (1944) met Poesy Liang in November 2009, when he came to Malaysia as Boney M’s music director for the charity concert at Sunway Convention Centre, Selangor. He is a senior musician who worked with Teresa Teng, Jimmy Ruffin, Miki Imai, Kenji Sawada and others.
He produced Treetops as part of his contribution to Helping Angels, Poesy’s social movement of compassion. All the initial costs to produced were personally sponsored out of his pocket, mentoring Poesy to make her first original song.
If You Were Here
If You Were Here is a collaboration between Poesy and guitar maestro Per-Olov Kindgren who is the original composer of the tune.
He invited Poesy to produce a romantic album with 13 tunes of his original compositions provided that she wrote the lyrics to all the songs.
This collaboration was the first song done and the album did not progress further because everything was self-funded by Poesy.
The music arrangement was done by Godrey Wang in London, and the song has yet to be recorded in the studio.
Whatever that is being circulated on the internet was the rough recording done in Godfrey’s living room, the purpose was to finalise his music arrangements.
Poesy still needs to work with a vocal coach before entering the recording studio.
I Don’t Know About Tomorrow
The last time Poesy heard or sang this was from 30 years ago. It suddenly popped up in Poesy’s mind. It was was recorded during the Covid19 pandemic, using an iPad Pro.
