Big White Vinyl
This collection spans both old and new material, but I tried to keep the old 'album' concept of songs that work together and tell a story - in this case, boy ditches love, boy finds new love, new love ditches boy. I couldn't help starting out with a Dylan cover, the best songwriter of our lifetime. For me, the key to a memorable song is a good hook. I try to build my songs around them. The music usually comes easy, the lyrics are more difficult. I had some lyrical help from my friends on a few key songs, and I'm very grateful. All songs were recorded on my Boss BR-8 eight track recorder in my apartment in Brooklyn. Electronic drums are live in most cases, and I played all the instruments. I had super vocal support and encouragement from my fellow songwriter/artist Elayne Terranova. Be sure to check out her CDs. With this album, I hope I can take you on a journey. Try it on your car stereo!
