Sailing to a Distant Star
We are happy to be now releasing our second album entitled Sailing To A Distant Star. The songs follow along together in a sequence but can also stand alone if that is preferred. The first album was entitled Just Another Day. Those playing and singing for the new album are as follows: Jon Kerr plays lead acoustic guitar, banjo and vocals. Jon is a science teacher at the high school level here in mid coast Maine. He has played with many bands throughout the years. Christina Klintgarden, vocals, and she is from Sweden traveling here to rehearse and record. It is interesting for the mix to have a the northern European touch in the sound of the vocals. Christina is my sister as we both were born in Gothenburg, Sweden. Mike McFarland plays the stand up bass on this recording. He is also an accomplished musician along with being a rural mail deliverer. He can be found playing music much of the time as it is a great joy in his life. Both Jon and Mike developed the lead and bass parts of the songs we are sharing in this recording. Lars O. Nelson plays acoustic rhythm and sings vocals. The songs, lyrics and rhythm music, were written by Lars O. Nelson and are copyrighted to him. We hope you enjoy what you hear on this album. It was a lot of fun to see the songs grow from just a few notes to something that could be recorded when all the parts came together. Now we can dream that the songs can travel far beyond us to you and to others in this world. Hopefully having a positive effect and becoming something pleasent for new ears to hear. Thanks for listening and all wishes for goodness and peace in this world.
