About the project...
Inspired by the the folk revival of the 1950s and 1960s, I wanted to write a set of acoustic songs that stuck to very simple chord progressions and melodies but that did not overtly reflect any specific genre of Americana. I wanted the lyrics to be straightforward- creative but without much attempt at poetry. The subjects are mostly political but I hope that they're injected with enough humor to avoid sounding preachy.
The recording was done on a desktop computer with one cheap mic. Most of the music that inspired these songs was recorded with the equivalent technology of the time. Maybe, if this project has some minor success, I'll record the next one with a great engineer, using a $10,000 microphone!
Lastly, the business model is to give the recording away but hope, if you like it, you'll throw in whatever tip you can afford. The idea being to bypass the business side of the music business altogether- to be a singer not a salesman.
