After a recent remix, I invited Bud and Janice to add some vocals to this song and I was just delighted with the results. I hope you enjoy it as well.

Summer Chaser Music by L Olivier, words by Lawrence Olivier and Lisa Veraza-Elis, Harmony vocals sung by Janice Merritt and produced by Bud Merritt

Summer Chaser (July 2009)


I’m a 1981 thirty-three foot Hunter
I sport ivory sails and I’m worn from stem to stern
I can glide all year long, but I’m better in the summer
I ain’t pretty no more but I glisten in the setting sun

Hey they call me the summer chaser
Hey they call me the wandering one

Well my mast she might need repairing
And my canvass is most undone
Sometimes the waters rough but it’s never too rough for sailing
I love the feel the wind rushing, I love the smell of the open sea
The free water’s always calling me

You know the heart of the wild seas, it’s always stealing me closer
I can withstand any tide as long as you’re at the helm with me

This might be our maiden voyage, or this might be the bitter end
And we’re headed now to the place where we began
Together in the distance, it’s a beacon that we see
And the lights that once were bright now are fading

Hey they called us the summer chasers
Hey they called us the wandering ones

You know the heart of the wild seas, it’s always stealing me closer
I can withstand any tide as long as you’re at the helm with me

I’m a 1981 thirty-three foot Hunter, I ain’t pretty no more but I sailed into the setting sun

Very very nice.
Excellent use of dramatic pauses in the tune. I really like the production. Nice variety on the harmonies. caught me by surprise. Very nice.
now I want a sailboat too!

What a catchy, summery song. I particularly like the transition to the bridge. The lead vocal is excellent and Janice's wonderful background vocals add the icing to a very fine cake. Great work by all.

Well now I've listened to this song about 10 times! I really like it and I'm going to save it for songwriting and arranging study.

and I had to find out about the sail boat.
Youtube has one that was for sale a while ago.

1981 33 foot Hunter for sale

Marty, Janice wrote her own parts. It all came together very nicely.

The boat, the "Fidelis", was owned by a friend of mine and we used to sail Lake Pontchartrain on the North end of New Orleans in the years before and the summer of 2005 before Hurricane Katrina. The boat in your link brings back fond memories

Catchy song! Vocals are nice, harmonies are a bonus, especially on the fade.

Nice write, engaging story.

Loved the guitar solo. Gotta check out that RT. Cool ending!

Reminded me a bit of early Billy Joel - that's a good thing.

I like this one a lot! laugh

Thank you David. I added some Guitar Rig 5 on that solo. And thank you for some musical context, I often don't know what style I'm writing in.

Re: Summer Chaser - 03/01/21 06:47 PM

This is great singer/songwriter stuff even though it's fully produced. Great lyric. I hear ship (boat? Yacht? I'm a land-lubber) as metaphor for marriage and every line is precious. Great structure from that short chorus to all the twists and turns, the false ending, the reprise/encore and the very nice faded ending. Ever fresh. Great delivery in the vocals, and Janice's Americana harmonies are sweet indeed. Hugely enjoyed and all I wanted to do when it finished was play it again.

Re: Summer Chaser - 03/02/21 06:34 AM

Lawrence,

Cool opening. A nice "breezy" sound to the rest. It actually reminded me an overall Stephen Stills vibe.

Nice vocals. Background vocals are top-notch! Janice is always a nice addition to your songs (or to anyone's for that matter).

A great listen.

Cool narrative and arrangement.
Really solid main vocals and a set of harmony vocals that surprise with the excellent, path less trodden phrasing and note perspective.
With just the main vocal it'd be a very successful recording but with Janice along it lift into wow land.

This song has kinetic energy: It keeps moving along nicely. I enjoyed the whole song, but I especially liked the luscious vocal harmonic textures after the caesura. That was a big wow! Nicely done, You must have had a good producer smile

A super summer song. And bringing in Janice is always a plus! Her vocals and harmonies are exquisite. And your lead vocal is a perfect match for the music. Nice lyric and an equally great musical backing. The lead guitar riff was bold and added a new dimension that works perfectly. Really, really superb listen! Take care ...

Thank you for your thoughtful comments. I know what your talking about 7th to the bass line but I don't know that it was done with that technique purposely.

Hey... glad I dropped in on this. Nice song.... kind of reminded me of CSN a bit.

Yep, I like this song.


A buddy of mine....Danny.... you might recall that he recorded a few songs in my studio last year, lived for a year or so on a moored sail boat. It lacked a workable mast so sailing wasn't an option.
