The story behind Come Back Baby by Dante Payne

Come Back Baby happened by accident. It was September night. I was in bed listening through to the latest song ideas my writing partner Cliff Rossiter and I had been working on over the previous weeks. We were booked into the studio with James, our engineer, next Tuesday to finish a song and I realised that all the ideas we have came up with just weren’t right. It became very apparent to me that I either cancel next week’s studio session or we had better come up with something else quicktime. I started digging around my hard drives for inspiration, including a file of acappella’s that Cliff sent me long time ago. I immediately paused at Come Back Baby. A smooth reggae style vocal oozed out the speakers, my ears pricked up as the smile hit my face. ‘She is amazing…’ I quickly called Cliff… ‘so damn talented!’. Then the idea hit me. We take her magical vocal and mix it with heavy beats and a slow dirty groove. The following Tuesday we spent a magical day in the studio allowing ourselves to be guided by James’ amazing ear and experienced a hit record taking shape. We completed something very special that day and the rest is now history as they say, you decide.
