ITALY – The recently released “Never Been Here Before” by Refel Rushing conveys the emotion and passion of a brand-new and deepening romantic partnership. It is the third song from Rushing’s song cycle of nine, “Love Over Time,” and features lyrics and vocals by Rushing. The song collection was orchestrated and produced by Jay Hinson.
“This song evokes the first spark of a unique feeling deep in the gut, a feeling unlike any ever experienced before,” Rushing said. “The singer expresses that someone has made him feel love like never before. In return, he will be both a trusted best friend and lover.”
In addition to being a musician, Rushing is a businessman, rancher, and lifelong philanthropist. He is continuing his charitable work with each of the new song releases.
“Never Been Here Before” was accompanied by the donation of a calf picked out of Rushing’s personal stock to a low-income Italy ISD student to show at the Ellis County Youth Livestock Show. In conjunction with the release, Rushing also arranged the contribution of hand-painted art for the Waxahachie Youth Baseball League at the Optimist Fields.
“Refel is the most versatile and creative person I have had the pleasure to work with and have enjoyed discovering his many different abilities,” said manager Ed Mestyanek, owner of ELM Custom Art. “He is a creative visionary and one of today’s very few truly selfless people.”
Throughout his life, Rushing says he’s been hearing music in his head and writing poetry – and “Love Over Time,” years in the making, is an outpouring of a fraction of that music. Up until now, Rushing has mostly kept his songs to himself; however, he decided to publish his music as a way of giving back to the community.
His songs are available for free download at Refel Rushing Music, www.refelrushingmusic.com; proceeds raised from donations or merchandise are put back into the community.
