ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Got this old friend I'm seeing / along the wild New Hampshire coast / and she jokes I keep appearing / like some old New England ghost / and she dances in the moonlight / where the restless ocean foams / sometimes I call it beauty / sometimes I call it home"

Long before the "Americana" tag was fashionable, Mike Romeling was blurring the line between folk, rock, roots, and country. From his early days as a folk singer in turbulent New York City and continuing today as a country music outsider in upstate New York, Mike Romeling remains uniquely qualified to sing these songs.

"Mason jars, childhood scars / jasmine in your tea / crazy quilted patterns on your wall / I know we're just pretending trying to keep me high / till that early morning train whistle calls"

A remarkable and eclectic musical journey documenting this uniquely talented singer-songwriter as he searches for his truer sound and finds it. These songs are now brought together for the first time on CD. Let it take you places.

"Midnight, oh midnight / where they make you feel like a busted wheel in a giant lost and found / and the air is full of thunder and the neon colors clash / got the Rolling Stones on the radio and St. Christopher on the dash."

A Message from Mike:

"The Schodack Hedgehogs and I are real proud that the Penguin put together this collection of my songs. We hope you like it too! Thanks for listening."

Jack Casey

A varied collection by a great artist.
This CD collects eight years of Mike Romeling's ballads and rockers about lost love, late nights, the open road and ultimately a courage in seeking truth in relationships and truth in oneself. There's joy of cutting loose, there's excitement of new love, there's introspection alone in the dead of night, there's tragedy of breaking it off.
Mike's deep, raspy voice echoes from the hills and roadhouses of eastern New York and the rocky Berkshires, Arlo Guthrie country, where folks are fiercely independent and stoic, and the roots of music go back before the Revolution. This collection shows how an uncompromising artist can fuse the forms of folk music and rock with a modern idiom to produce a refreshing new and original sound. Let Mike and the Schodack Hedgehogs lead you along the road apiece and point out some of the attractions. You'll love the journey!
