It is no easy task crafting the perfect pop song, yet that is what i try to do with every song i write. I have been influenced by some of the most successful and innovative artists over the last 60 years, including The Beatles, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, The Strokes and The Arctic Monkeys.

Biography

In June 2006, Sabbadini was contacted by french record label "One More Time", which expressed an interest in his music. With only a handful of poorly home recorded samples, it was made clear that it was time to invest in a decent demo/EP recording. The next phase was to put a band together and not wanting to waste any time, Sabbadini organised a session bassist (Jarrod Ross), drummer (D) and lead guitarist Paolo Tommasini.

After three weeks of heavy rehearsal and a so called 'mock gig', the boys arrived at Studio 52 (A well known recording studio in Melbourne recommended by Jack Strom). Engineered by Jess Warnock and Trevor Carter, the EP took approximately six recording sessions to complete. The name "Stray Arrows" was taken from a line in a song Sabbadini had written called "Fallen Down". Funnily enough that song didn't make the cut but the name stayed as it encaptured the true essence and subject matter of the EP.

On December 7th, he launched his EP at the esteemed Evelyn Hotel. The lineup included Durbeyfield and Little Red and was dubbed by some as "a lineup worthy of folklore". In 2007 Sabbadini will continue to promote his music throughout Australia's live venues.

Lyrics

Colors In Your Eyes

Written By: Luke Sabbadini

I know you feel this way whenever i'm around
I was told the faith you have is only in yourself
Look inside, look around, do you feel complete?
Look inside, feel your heart, did it skip a beat?

Don't be shy, i see the colors in your eyes
And we will take away our disguise
My love for you is their surprise

And you hold on but you're, you're feeling tired, you are dying for a break
And you want love but you're, you're feeling frightened that your heart is going to break.

Don't be shy, i see the colors in your eyes
And we will take away our disguise
My love for you is their surprise

Don't be shy, i see the colors in your eyes
And we will take away our disguise

And you hold on but you're, you're feeling tired, you are dying for a break
And you want love but you're, you're feeling frightened that your heart is going to break.

Don't be shy, i see the colors in your eyes
And we will take away our disguise
My love for you is their surprise
