about

This 5-track EP is the sophomore project by producer, musician, and also poet, Ahmed Sirour, following his debut project 'The After 2am Sessions LP'. This is the first part of an experimental project combining the Ahmed's two loves of poetry and music, fused with the ever-popular theme of love & romance...the good, the bad, and the humorous!

Most people are unaware that Ahmed was a poet far longer than he had been a musician. Writing poetry an essays from as early as 8 or 9 years old, Ahmed always had an affinity for the written word. His first romantic poems were written to one of his earliest crushes in grade school at age 14. He would continue to write countless pieces from that age onward (many which have been misplaced and lost over time, including numerous composition notebooks). It wasn't until 2002, when he became a full-fledged professional musician, that poetry would take a backseat as he began to fully explore his newfound talent that has culminated to this point where he comes a full 360-degrees to fuse his two passions and gifts together, finally, into this collection of original compositions of romantic poetry/short stories paired with timeless music...pieces that would otherwise be vocal songs, if he felt he could actually sing lol

Released just two days before Valentine's Day 2013, just in time for the lovers, the hope{ful] romantics, and even the simply those who love of music and prose, "This Would Be a Love Song...If Only I Could Sing" is Ahmed's next experimental project, now incorporating words with sounds, centered on the eternal theme of Love.

about

Ahmed Sirour Brooklyn, New York

The composer brings an idea sketched out. The arranger then takes the idea and places it in the best order. The musicians execute the idea. The producer oversees it all, and the engineer captures, mixes, and masters it...and they all happen to have the same name.

Track Name: 01 "To Whom This Will Concern" (full single preview)
That you may exist is the reason I write this
and smile, somewhere within, in the place in
my spirit that knows you will be here one
day, and say to me, unequivocally, that I
am the man you had hoped life would send
your way, who would love you all day, until
the start of the next, and then the next, and
then continue until there were no more left
for him on this Earth. I want to believe my
birth was timed and that the countdown began
until one day the sand runs out and our paths
finally connect and the vindication of our
intuitions are found correct that in each other
we could finally see the full beauty of who we
really were. One day I want you to refer to
this and know it was you I was speaking about
all along, or in the song I composed, or a photo
of a beautiful place I had been...wanting to share
this with you, to celebrate the wonder of feeling
like this, simply because you are--you exist. You
don't end the list, you start a whole new page and
a new age can then begin when you enter in the
vacant places of my heart yet unseen; I mean, the
doors the others couldn't or didn't try to walk through.
And I will talk with you until we fall asleep, and wake
up, and see you, and keep shaking my head that
you are there...not because I don't think I deserve
you but that I've reserved that moment for you
and you really came, and somehow, you thought the
same about me. I wonder if I even actually know
your name but I know that amongst all who would
read this, where they'd feel the poetry, you'd feel
the praise and be moved, humbly, at the audacious
realization that this is actually about you...and then you
might even laugh, as you show me that you wrote
the same thing about me, too.
