Biography

Albert Khasky, born in Los Angeles, is a singer/songwriter that has more to offer than most performers of his genre. In fact, his sound is creating a brand that the world has not seen. He has been composing original music and performing since a young age and has the early moments in his life as well as the new, captured on his 9 song record entitled See Yourself.

The record makes up a soundtrack to a life that has been filled with dark and sometimes aggravating circumstances and the sence of conquering fears and missing emotions. When Taylor Martyr, long time friend and associate of Invengo Record's producer Joshua Rumer, told a tale of an amazing writer and performer named Albert and felt that the artist would benefit from the kind of artistic 'love' we could provide.

Tony Ushino, drummer and partner to Mr. Khasky, accompanied him to the studio for a brief meeting at the studio. Upon entry, Albert was greeted with a firm hand shake, a sturdy and boisterous introduction and the warning that 'this better not suck'. Albert nervously and casually sat down on the couch in the control room and began strumming a tune called Byrd. Almost immediately the producer was motionless and all ears. He requested another number and it became clear that he was in the company of one of the most amazing male voices he has ever heard. A few hooks here, a few bridges and breakdowns there became the perscription for what became the record.

After Ushino laid down the arranged tracks Solomon, brother in law to Albert, began recording the ever changing bass tracks which have rocking disco and back beat overtones. Flavor was spewing from Solomon and with every song it became evident that the gang was hitting something untouched. Jonny Polonsky, veteran performer/producer/composer was next in line with a barrage of guitar work that spoke the common language of decades of 6 string mastery. Stacking and embelishing filled the room for days as Polonsky added the sweetness to the mix.

As recording sessions were put on hold to ingest what sensory overload can do to a person, Joshua began feeling the usual disease. There could be something else in here. Like some brass. The news to Khasky and Ushino was not as well received as Rumer thought. He convinced the pair that if he could just give it a go, all will be 'most magnificent and fabulous'. The foundation of the band agreed and a call was made to Danny Levin (The Ventrouliquists, Rilo Kiley, Amanitas and Friends) and the message was...let's light this up, D.

Danny arrived with fro teased up to the heavens and, without hearing a second of the blossoming tracks, began the process of building walls of brass with Rumer behind the glass bouncing about and rejoycing to the sounds of Khasky and Ushino doing the same. Days went by and the arrangements became more intense and complex, lending strong hooks, brilliant melody and a feel that is impossible to describe with any justice.

Just when the group thought they had what they needed the disease hit yet one more time. Producer needs some percussion. So Ushino called on his friend to add the final elements to the tracks that needed to jetison the listener to a brand new dimension. As the mixes were finalized, all you could hear were seatbelts clicking. It proves that when you fill the air with the best of the best and nurture each moment of an art, the results are often times out of control, as is the case with Albert Khasky's record. From start to finish there is a will to succeed and a drive for perfection which is what this record will lend to a shallow and prefabricated industry.

Lyrics

See Yourself

Written By: Albert Khasky

I fall down
Way down deep inside myself
When I’m this far gone
I don’t believe in what I saw

They say everything happens for a reason
I know what you’re thinking of
A beautiful flower
Dead when I planted
You got me twisted up

You can find me when you see yourself
Wallow in your own self doubt
Take a look at my face
When I wear my disguise
You’ll never know
Who ill be tonight

To save some face
I’m taking some chances
Watching you wake away

You can find me when you see yourself
Wallow in your own self doubt
Take a look at my face
When I wear my disguise
You’ll never know
Who I’ll be tonight

You can find me when you see yourself
Wallow in your own self doubt
Take a look at my face
When I wear my disguise
You’ll never know
Who I’ll be tonight

Father Said

Written By: Albert Khasky

Whats the down low
Give me the low down
Tell me what you know
Give me the breakdown
On the info
You got down below
I know you know
There’s no place to go

It’s the same show
That I’ve been to
All those times before
Same arrangement
With the people
No one dare says no
There no place to go
And I know you know

But I think I forget
What my father said
Its too bad hes already dead
But I know I believe
In the things he did

Gather round boys
Let me show ya
You can never hesistate
When all the people
All around you cant appreciate
All the sweat you gave
No they cant be saved

But I think I forget
What my father said
Its too bad hes already dead
But I know I believe
In the things he did
Never going to breath again breath again

For god’s sake
Please be safe
For god’s sake

But I think I forget
What my father said
Its too bad hes already dead
But I know I believe
In the things he did
Never going to breath again
breath again breath again breath again
never gonna breath again

Dirty Old Man

Written By: Albert Khasky

Take some time when youre looking me over
Twist your head back over your shoulder
Take some time before you go Passing me by
Looking out the corner of your eye

Somebody said
Somebody likes
The way you look
When you cry
Some dirty old man
Once had his way
Sweet little girl
Taken away

Take some time when you’re getting to know her
Pull her hair back rub on her shoulders
Take some time before you go casting her aside
Her story will make the devil cry

Somebody said
Somebody likes
The way you look
When you cry
Some dirty old man
Once had his way
Sweet little girl
Taken away

(BRIDGE)

Somebody said
Somebody likes
The way you look
When you cry
Some dirty old man
Once had his way
Sweet little girl
Taken away

Creeping

Written By: Albert Khasky

I take a step in the right direction
like I got good intentions
how'd I end up on my face?
don't matter where we go brother
one foot in front of the other
we're going to find out way

I’m so glad you know
I’m so glad you know

Cause im peeping im creeping to you
When I’m lost and blind
I don’t know what do to do
If you could find it in your heart to forgive
I’m gonna make you

I look down on the pavement
try to find where the day went
it does not matter anyway
even though I know its over
you look so much older
but I stayed the same

I’m so glad you know
I’m so glad you know

Cause im peeping im creeping to you
When I’m lost and blind
I don’t know what do to do
If you could find it in your heart to forgive
I’m gonna make you

I’m gonna make you
I’m gonna make you

Cause im peeping im creeping to you
When I’m lost and blind
I don’t know what do to do
If you could find it in your heart to forgive
I’m gonna make you glad
