Whispers / Various
Way back when my gang of intrepid hipsters were trying to learn the realities of music we found that it's almost like the Holy Grail. We were in that strange period of inebriant youth when the future was wide open and music a wondrous journey ahead. But on that path we learned that it was best to forget the stars in our eyes and just go play. Somewhere. Anywhere. We would take our guitars, violin, mandolin, flute and whatever else we could carry and visit friends unannounced. We played our songs, cover songs, ballads, folk, pop - at any time and any place. It was priceless. It was the classic reality of Troubadours and Wandering Minstrels. It was penance, but it was experience. It was the way to learn. And what we learned is best captured here on 'Whispers'. It is acoustic songs, simple and very straightforward (even if embellished a little), for anyone who cares to listen. It's just like the good ol' days when time was standing still. If 'Whispers' is a joy to your spirit then we have completed our journey. For us, this is Life.
