Sunshine In A Box I’ve gathered many colors and mixed them with some warmth Placed among good things that I remember Listened to the birds sing and then taking from their song The sound of all things sweet We danced around in laughter watching flowers as they bloom Intoxicated by their fragrant nectar Reaching out our arms to try and catch the open sky Then paint it in our mind The Earth is but a garden that is tended by all life Organic in the presence of its nature But our appreciation of the gifts that have been shared Is our sunshine in a box… Words & Music by Tim Kwiat - Copyright 2020 (KwiatSongs)

Breakfast Under The Trees I can feel the morning - coming in with the breeze And so I will meet you there for breakfast under the trees Mixing conversation with the bread and the cheese All the things we might share and breakfast under the trees There could not be a better way To wake and greet the brand new day Let your troubles slip away Make the forest our café… Lets relax in the morning – come and go as we please Letting go of our problems with breakfast under the trees We can just be natural like the birds and the bees And so I will meet you there for breakfast under the trees There could not be a better way To wake and greet the brand new day Let your troubles slip away Make the forest our café… Words & Music by Tim Kwiat - Copyright 2020 (KwiatSongs)

Blessed 02:55
Blessed I’m blessed now baby – blessed to be with you I’m so blessed now baby – so blessed to be with you I’m blessed now baby – my whole life through I’m blessed now baby – so blessed that you’re with me I’m so blessed now baby – so blessed that you’re with me I’m blessed now baby – that’s how it’s meant to be Now I can still list – A handful of reasons Why I don’t deserve what I have And Maybe there’s grace – That’s turning the seasons I’ve Learned to accept and be glad I’m blessed now baby – blessed to be with you I’m so blessed now baby – so blessed to be with you I’m blessed now baby – my whole life through Words & Music by Tim Kwiat - Copyright 2020 (KwiatSongs)

Touch 02:31
Touch You touch me in the morning – Inspire me the whole day through You move me in the evening and calm me when the day is through You help me when I need you – you lift when I am down Hold me when I’m fragile – Lonely, you stay around I can feel you – I can hear you I am with you… Touch me at the beginning – Love me until the end Take me to your promise – and let me live again… Words & Music by Tim Kwiat - Copyright 2020 (KwiatSongs)

Espresso And A Churchill I sit by the window - here in the coffee bar To have an espresso and a fine cigar Now I’ve got a feeling – As I stare at the ceiling And watch all my troubles melt away Though values are changing outside the small café I find it engaging that I can divert this way A simple distraction – that spurs the reaction Of watching my worries melt away Although the dark may ensue Somehow the light still shines through… So here in the window – watching the world go by I’m so unaffected whenever I close my eyes A simple distraction – that spurs the reaction Of watching my worries melt away Words & Music by Tim Kwiat - Copyright 2020 (KwiatSongs)

So In Love 02:06
So In Love I am so in love with you I am so in love with you Everything I say – Everything I do Baby I am so in love with you… And I so belong with you Yes I so belong with you Every place I go – Everything I do Baby I just so belong with you… Everything I know – Everything is true Baby I am so in love with you… Words & Music by Tim Kwiat - Copyright 2020 (KwiatSongs)

Getting Older I am getting older So much here that I have done I’m older – But my life has just begun Days growing shorter and the time is flying by I’m older – So the rules do not apply We’re getting older with so much here that’s left to do I’m tired - yet we always make it through… Words & Music by Tim Kwiat - Copyright 2020 (KwiatSongs)

Poetry 02:20
Poetry I took a line from your poetry I tried to see it with my mind I tried to comprehend it’s meaning I tried to leave the thought behind I took a line from your poetry I tried to keep it in my head I tried to hold it on the ceiling But it fell down on me instead I took a line from your poetry I tried to see it with my mind I tried to pour it out for everyone But I just could not make it rhyme Words & Music by Tim Kwiat - Copyright 2020 (KwiatSongs)

Thank God For You I’m getting older every day I feel that I’m slipping and fading away I used to have sunlight but days are so dark It started in high gear and ended in park Thank you God for you – Thank God for you I used to remember and now I forget I needed direction the day that we met I tried to move forward but only went back Things I held on to just slipped through the cracks Thank you God for you – Thank God for you I still needed someone to show me the way Someone to help get by through the day There isn’t a reason to tap the reserve But I know what’s coming and it’s what I deserve Thank you God for you – Thank God for you Thank you God for you – Thank God for you Words & Music by Tim Kwiat - Copyright 2020 (KwiatSongs)

House In The Woods It’s been too long since we have gotten some peace A break from the world – some needed release A plan for us both at a place we can meet To hide from the world and escape from the heat Just you and I and a house in the woods… Words & Music by Tim Kwiat - Copyright 2020 (KwiatSongs)
11.
Under The Moonlight Under the moonlight – I can somehow see outside Lifting the darkness and casting shadows in the night Under the moonlight as I gaze into the skies I think of the heavens and I almost realize That we’re all temporary but we’re meant to be free Yet the dawn still approaches – which is how it all should be Under the moonlight there can be a certain calm Leaving the sunset – though the day still travels on Under the moonlight there is peace without despair Listen in silence as it echoes everywhere Words & Music by Tim Kwiat - Copyright 2020 (KwiatSongs)

The Grand Reserve Well I’ve been waiting for so long And found the grass is not much greener But one day I will get what I deserve And I’ve been holding on so long As the atmosphere seems cleaner so one day I’ll tap into the grand reserve Words & Music by Tim Kwiat - Copyright 2020 (KwiatSongs)

about

This is an Album to chill with. An organic offering, that creates an atmosphere of intimacy and appreciation...

There are some people who come into your life and change it forever! Tim Halloran was one of those people and his untimely (and unexpected) passing in February 2020 brought the end of an incredible era that can not possibly be equaled.

Fortunately, he had finished his contributions to one final album, that is perhaps the most poignant and intimate of the Super Genius catalog.

Titled "Breakfast Under The Trees", Steve Brown calls this a 12 song love letter to Tim's Kwiat's wife Karen. The album is certainly an appreciation of relationships, growing older, and simplicity, but it also the album that was not meant to be.

With a live performance scheduled for March of 2020, the band had initially planned to record a straight rock album that they had been rehearsing, but scheduled those sessions for April and took a break for the week between Christmas and New Year's of 2019. During that time, Steve had been experiencing medical issues that made it painful for him to play the drums for extended periods of time. To stay fresh, Tim Kwiat wrote all of the music on this album in one evening, and finished off lyrics within the following two days. He then quickly recorded acoustic guitar and vocals.

Next Steve added bongos, shakers, bells, knee slaps, brushes on cardboard boxes, tambourine, African drum, wood blocks, rain stick, and even a bowl of water to create atmosphere around each piece. He only played a full drum kit on one song!

Tim Halloran's bass work is classic. His parts were creative, collaborative, and executed to provide a subtle sense of motion and color to this very intimate collection. The work on this project alone provides proof that music was this man's life! Sadly, within a week after finishing his final performance, Tim's physical presence was gone....However, his heart and spirit continued with every playback as the record continued with Mike Bitts adding piano and keyboards, Tim Kwiat embellishing with electric guitar, and Olivia Brown (Steve's daughter) adding gorgeous harmonies throughout. The result not only is a fitting tribute to Tim, but it is perhaps his finest work.

"Breakfast Under The Trees" was mastered by Glenn Carty and is presented digitally and on Compact Disc.
