Four never before released or publicly available demo cuts from the writing sessions of Craig Peyton and Jolyon Skinner circa 1983-1985. The duo produced and wrote hits for artists in between working on their own projects. These songs survived the past 30 years on a cassette tape, which was lovingly transferred for this exclusive to Peyton Records release. After their short but fruitful collaborative period, Peyton went on as a writer and band leader and Skinner went on to have a career as a songwriter for pop acts such as Joe, NSYNC, and Freddie Jackson.
In the words of Craig Peyton:
"Jolyon Skinner and I met in the early '80s through our mutual friend Keith Diamond (the Trinidadian producer of hits such as "Caribbean Queen" by Billy Ocean). After we met, Jolyon and I started regular writing sessions at my NYC P-Factor studio. Our first break came in 1983 with Howard Johnson's "Let This Dream Be Real". That was followed up with "Love of a Lifetime" by Melba Moore and "Where Ya Gonna Be Tonight" for Will Collins. After this we were offered a recording deal by April Blackwood Music, but due to my contract with Profile Records at the time we couldn't accept it. Shortly after Skinner got signed to Zomba and we stopped writing together around 1985."
