Album Notes
Eve Goodman and John Caldwell have been playing as a duo ever since they met at blues jam in Pittsburgh, PA in 2003. Their intricate guitar work and vocal harmonies enthrall audiences. Their new CD is a combination of John's visionary music production and Eve's strong songwriting. Eve's musical styles are eclectic: "Esther" takes one back to the standards of the 1940s, whereas "As It Is" and "When the Sun Goes Down" urges the listener to wake up and take a look around. The alt. country songs "More Than Okay," "Waiting On You" and "The Same Sky" are more than just love gone wrong but the resiliency of the heart while the country blues "People and the Weather" was amusingly inspired by an in-flight airline magazine article! Eve and John's renditions of covers like the traditional "Poor Wayfaring Stranger" and Paul Simon's "Song About The Moon" are unique and refresshing.
Give it a listen - I promise you will not be disappointed.

Getting it right...
Eve took her time to get this one right, and it shows. Carefully produced by John Caldwell, the recording features some of Pittsburgh's finest, including Glenn Pavone on guitar and Max Leake on B3, amid a host of others. Three of the tunes are recorded live and stand up perfectly in the mix of the 14 tunes on the CD. A solo version of "Pennies From Heaven" reveals the jazz work she's done on the guitar over the last few years. Her guitar is outstanding throughout--a rhythmic finger-style approach with elegant ornamentations and harmonic voicings. Her vocals start at Joan Baez, head off in the direction of Melissa Etheridge, but stop in Shawn Colvin's neighborhood, as befits her Boston roots.

Themes go from relationships ("More Than OK") to social commentary ("Bus Song", "As It Is") and include a hymn to 94-year-old Esther. My personal favorites are the title track "What The Living Do" and "When The Sun Goes Down" the showcase all the strengths at once: good writing, singing, playing and production.

This record is a testament to the talent and dedication of everyone involved, starting with Eve herself. One to own and treasure...
