Album Notes
I am still blown away by how technology makes my itinerant musical lifestyle accessible - the collection of tunes for "On The Inside" were conceived while traveling the world, and also enjoying a gorgeous lifestyle in New Zealand. The files were mastered in Germany by the prestigious Pauler Acoustics, and then manufactured in the USA by CD Baby. All sent round the world with a click of a button! This is a long way from the big fat expensive tape of the 80's.
I recorded this album at a local studio in Devonport, New Zealand with my friend Micheal Young engineering. This guy is so calm and sweet and generous, that it allowed me total artistic freedom. I had a very clear idea of what I wanted to do, but I also wanted another voice. My new neighbor in New Zealand is Helene Piper - the girl next door. Originally from Denmark, she has directed choirs, performed herself, and is a well trained musician. She contributed delicious back up vocals, and a few percussion tracks as well. She is a killer shaker and cabasa player. Plus, she tuned the kalimba!!!! ( harder than it sounds...)
People all over the world know me as a Martin Guitar Amabassador, so it's no surprise that Martin guitars and ukuleles feature prominently here. I also played a unique instrument called a " Strumstick" that my friend Bob McNally designed and made - it's only at the end of " All Along " but it sounds like a banjo. Check one out if you can - they are instantly playable...no wrong notes. I also played the bass on all of the tracks - and while I am no Jaco Pastorious, I feel confident that I supplied the bottom. I loved playing percussion - I think I am a closet drummer. I played bongos, cajon, and the aforementioned kalimba, plus some extra fun things. For the final touches, I had my two special creative friends contribute their talents - Risa Wallberg did the design layout, and the photo on the back was taken by longtime friend and photographer, NY-based Sardi Klein. The cover features a woodcut I did as an undergraduate at Brooklyn College. I don't hold onto many things, but this has been with me ever since.
I hope you listen to the entire recording from go to whoa, as the order was designed to take you on a journey.
Thanks for reading, thanks for listening, and thanks for supporting independent songwriters.
