Jermaine Jackson & "Save Tomorrow"

Jermaine Jackson first heard Theresa Rhodes sing "Save Tomorrow" in 1993. He liked the song and its message and offered to sing it with her. The duet was first performed in public at a charity concert in England where Theresa appeared as Jermaine's guest artist. The song was recorded in Geneva, at Dinemec Studio, in December 1994. It was produced by Matt Clifford who had previously worked with Mick Jagger and toured with the Rolling Stones in 1992. The single was released in Europe in 1995, together with a video. Jermaine and Theresa toured Germany to promote the single. They appeared on 13 television shows and were interviewed on 12 radio stations. The song climbed to number 8 on the Radio Berlin Charts. Jermaine actively encouraged Theresa Rhodes to record her other material.

SAVE TOMORROW

Too much pain, too much sorrow
Children cry in vain: "Save tomorrow"
When all the dying is done
Will they work as one?
Too much pain, too much sorrow

Ruined cities lie everywhere
Shadows run through streets
in the cold night air
Search for shelter and some bread to share
A sniper in the dark brings in more despair
Too much pain, too much sorrow
Children cry in vain: "Save tomorrow"

.

Tortured memories carve an empty hole
Women raped of their very soul
We sit and watch the war take its toll
Indifferent to the curse on us all
Too much pain, too much sorrow
Women cry in vain: "Save tomorrow"

When will they finally go their way?
When will they ever know a future safe?
Why all the hate and the futile crime?
Killing one another in an endless line
Too much pain, too much sorrow
Children cry in vain: "Save tomorrow"

Biographical note by Theresa Rhodes

I was born in London and spent my youth in India and Rhodesia/Zimbabwe. I have been singing and playing guitar since the age of 10. At 18, I joined a college band and we were hired to record an album of country music. Whilst not at that time pursuing a musical career, I continued to sing and jam as often as I could.

In 1992, I started writing my own songs. One of them, "Save Tomorrow", reflects a period when I became deeply affected by the atrocities being committed in former Yugoslavia. I used this song to raise awareness on the situation through my ongoing involvement with a Swiss-based human rights group and was invited to sing "Save Tomorrow" on Women's Day in front of a large audience at the United Nations.

"Save Tomorrow" was heard by Jermaine Jackson who offered to sing the song with me. The duet was first performed in public at a charity concert in England where I appeared as Jermaine's guest artist.

Jermaine recorded "Save Tomorrow" with me in December 1994 and actively encouraged me to record my other material. The 14 songs on my first CD, "Quiet Storm", were recorded in Geneva, at Dinemec Studio. The album was produced by Matt Clifford who had worked with Mick Jagger on his solo album and toured with the Rolling Stones in 1992.

The single "Save Tomorrow" was released in 1995, together with a video. For two weeks in September 1995, Jermaine and I toured Germany to promote the single and we appeared on 12 television shows and were interviewed by 11 radio stations. The song climbed to No 8 on the Radio Berlin charts.

Back in Geneva, my long-time friend, the guitarist Kiet Nguyen, and I formed the group "One For The Road". Kiet arranged my latest songs and we recorded them in Geneva in 1996 and 1997. The CD, "An Acoustic Affair", is just that: with the exception of the bass guitar on certain tracks, there are no electric instruments and no synthesisers. The record was favoured by excellent reviews and the group’s performances live have been enthusiastically received.

In 1997 and 1998, we recorded and released the single "Clone Your Favorite Lovers" and gave a series of concerts in Switzerland, notably at the "Chat Noir" in Geneva and at the "Caribana Festival" where the group performed along with Diana King, Doctor John as well as Toots and the Maytalls.

In 1999 and 2000, I worked with producer Gareth Cousins on a "Clone Your Favorite Lovers" remix, which was released as a single in the U.S. together with the original One For The Road version. Gareth is best known for his award-winning music for films such as Dark City and Notting Hill. I also wrote and recorded new material for a second album entitled "Stealing The Show".

This album finally came out at the beginning of 2001. It was mixed by the talented Dave Richards at his legendary Mountain Studios in Montreux - a very exciting and memorable experience! Our cooperation with Dave Richards was renewed when we worked together on a "Live at Le Chat Noir" album.

In 2004, we recorded and released the album "The Other Side" and gave a series of concerts, notably in Paris at the "New Morning" and at the Arena in Geneva where we played the first act before Lionel Richie.

In 2005, I moved to the South of France, formed a new band based in Nice and continued performing under my own name. The group features renowned drummer, Felix Sabal-Lecco (Paul Simon, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Prince, Sade), Scotsman Neil Gerstenberg on sax and low whistles (David Sanborn, Warren Vaché, Jean-Marc Jafet, Sylvain Luc), French guitarist Eric Sempé (John McLaughin, Liz McComb, Chris de Burgh, David Sanborn) and Marc Peillon on electric bass (Stephano Di Battista, Gloria Gaynor, Chris de Burgh, David Sanborn, Babik Reinhardt). We toured in Belgium and France, notably at the Transbordeur in Lyon after Robert Plant. In 2006, I worked on a new album, "If You Had Only..." to be released in 2007 and distributed by CDBABY.

In Switzerland, most of the above mentioned recordings are distributed by Disques Office and may be found on cede.ch. They all may be ordered worldwide on the internet on cdbaby.com.
