Living for Today

Charlson Ximenes

A contemporary blues-rock song written and produced by Charlson Ximenes, masterfully sung by Jakey Heartbreak.

Over the years Charlson Ximenes has been producing beautiful music for artists from different parts of the planet, as well as having released his own solo album "Collision Course" in 2001.

"Living For Today" is an exciting opportunity for Ximenes to, once again, showcase his musical versatility and revisit his rock'n'roll roots.

This self-penned solo release is one of a series of blues-rock based songs exclusively intended for availability on all major download and streaming platforms, and which will eventually be part of a CD-album entitled " Blues Sky".
