ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From the jugband exuberance of Lion's Big Debut, to the breathtaking harmonica solos of Jet Fuel Folderol, Time of Wonder is Stefan des Lauriers acoustic Tour de Farce.

Produced by rock musician Sharkey McEwen and multi-instrumentalist Ken Whiteley-who plays mandolin, banjo, mountain dulcimer, accordion and a host of roots instruments - this synthesis of rock and roots is sure to delight people of all shapes and sizes.

Stefan's melodic diversity is maintained in a variety of innovative themes:

Sunflowers, an avant garde peace song reminiscent of the Byrds.

Great Engineer, a train song evocative of a locomotive, with its chugging harmonica and pedal steel guitar.

Heart of Snow with its exquisite wintry imagery a lyrical backdrop to a bizarre but fictitious figure skating mishap.

Vision of Victory with Sharkey's acoustic guitar conjuring up a mountain climber, a little bit over the hill, as he returns to the scene of the climb.

Wind-up Monkey Dance, a ragtime boogie line dance for people who have the tenacity out of line.

And Junkyard in the Sky, a rock and roll number that compares classic baby boomers to undying cars with outlandish tailfins - not to mention Time to Say Good Night, a harmonica enhanced lullaby that embraces environmentally correct bedtime thoughts.

As Edwin Holloway, Creator of CountrySide Blues at KVMR FM says: "If there ever was an epiphany of musical inspiration, this is it."

Fun songs for most ages
I got this CD for my kids, and I wanted to check a few songs out before I play it for them. I got hooked and listened the whole thing - and the kids are not even here yet!

tasty musicianship and fine production work
Being a big fan of the work of Ken and Chris Whiteley, I eagerly awaited
the release of Stefan des Lauriers' 'Time of Wonder.' What a musical treat!
And I think they met their match -- Stefan's creative, child-centered songs
are a perfect jumping off point for Ken and Chris' tasty musicianship and
fine production work.

An album both children and their parents can enjoy.
Stefan des Lauriers has put his heart and soul into this production. He uses words as toys, playfully twisting them, entertaining himself and his listeners in the process. It is an album both children and their parents can enjoy.
