"Met Your Match" was the first song recorded by Chase Bell & White Licorish in 2012. The intro line of electric guitar coupled with a sax is the real “catch” of the song. In this, as in many other songs of ours, we played with dynamics which resembles our live presence. One example of this is immediately after the crazy intro all the instruments vanish and we change to a simple trio of vocals, acoustic guitar, and percussion.
This song features Anna Calderini singing an improvised section, Manuel Magrini as he creates a latinized solo, and Augusto Castriota on his sax. “Met Your Match” has been featured on Radio Uno as a single and has received over 100,000 votes on the program "Demo."

"Town Of The Soul" is our mystical and spiritual masterpiece. It is the only song not written by Chase Bell, instead it was written by Vincent Verderosa, his uncle. Filmactic, dramatic, soothing, and powerful, this song has real meaning behind it. The photo is of Castelluccio, a small town only a few miles away from Ten People Town Studio where the album was recorded. The music video will be released soon directed by Milan Marsauche.
"He might say its like a giant ocean embracing every drop of rain, or like a fish searching for water as he swims his life in vain."

"Drummer Inside" is the 2013 Winner of the Radio Rai Uno contest "demo" with over 20,000 votes!
Too often do we listen to the mind instead of our heart who's message is simply: Keep On Keepin' on.
"The only thing that I did wrong was to not listen to my hearts beating, the rhythm of life, that keeps us alive, the drummer inside who tells me to keep on keepin' on."

"An Artist" has to build his vision out of thin-air, and it's likely that things won't fly as planned but when the artist adjusts to the wind there is no telling how high and for how long he will fly. We strive to use the ups and downs of life and to recognize that every artist needs to starve a while or they won't have anything worth saying anyway. This song is the story that Chase has lived through, and he is still learning to adjust to that wind. The Bar-Code Artwork was made by NickPawson.
"I thought I would be making it loud, I thought I'd be famous by now, I thought I would make my own sounds instead to earth I'm still bound, cause I'm an artist who's starving now."

“Enough Of Me” was written and recorded in the space of 2 months in the summer of 2012, its about what happens when one half of a relationship changes and the other half remains the same. Rome's un-shakable marble of ancient times alongside buildings of all other periods reflects the love drama which many couples go through. The band took this song and made it their own while keeping the initial songwriter style intact. Male and female vocals intertwine around the chorus in this meloncholic yet sweet love song.
"Now you've had enough but before you couldn't get enough of me."
