David Schulman Washington, D.C.

By turns nocturnal, reflective, funky, and cinematic, the music of violinist and composer David Schulman + Quiet Life Motel is a weave of jazz harmonies, shimmering orchestral textures, and international grooves.

Heard nationally on NPR, David’s music has been described as “mysterious and beautiful” by The Washington Post.

Track Name: automatic
lyrics by David Schulman

where's my violins?

play it ...

well i wancha right now
and I wancha to know,
it’s the end of the party
gotta put on a show

in the beat of a heart
it’s our very last chance,
it’s the end of the party
gonna get up and dance?

It’s automatic

get gone!

it’s automatic

yeah

don’t TOUCH me
don’t TEMPT me
don’t HANG me up
don’t LET me SEE you cry ...

where's my trumpet?

(trumpet solo)

it’s automatic

in the beat of a heart
it’s our very last chance,
it’s the end of the party —
get up and dance

it’s automatic


don’t TOUCH me
don’t TEMPT me
don’t HANG me up
just LET me SEE you smile ...

it’s automatic

it’s automatic

get gone!

it's automatic
Track Name: jessye norman sings brahms at the five spot
on the bandstand in a time of magical thinking jessye norman appears wrapped in her shawl she begins to sing, my slumber grows ever more peaceful. someone in the kitchen strikes a match. not for us another round. thelonious monk plays round midnight.
Track Name: home
music+lyrics by David Schulman

HOME
Whatever happens, we’re together
Laugh or fight or dancin, in the rain
Wherever you go, I go with you
Until I can’t remember my own name

Home Take me Home

There’s no blue heaven, no forever
Not for the likes of you and me.
But moonlight casts our shadows, as we’re walking
And That’s close to heaven as I’ll ever be.

We’ve had our candles, had our whisky
We’ve had our tea and scrambled eggs/cigarettes/hard-boiled eggs We’ve gone for broke on broken daydreams
And we’ve crawled back home too late, to get in bed

Take me
Take me home
oh my darlin
Please Take me home
Take me home tonight

I hear a trumpet ....
Take me, home
Take me home

A dream — a heart beat, secret numbers
Scraps of paper, something someone said
When I leave will someone still remember?
Will the voices still keep singing in your head?

I hear the sirens, I hear em singin
I see the lights before my eyes
You know I never seen anything so pretty
And I know I’ll never know the reason why

Take me
Take me home
oh my darlin
Please
Take me home
Take me home
Please
Take me home
Take me home tonight
