Album Notes
1. The Parting Glass - Lindsey's dynamic, improvisational take on the old Irish ballad accompanied by Sean's creative infusion of Afro Cuban rhythms on classical guitar. Eric Rey is both sensitive and passionate in his additions on conga.

2. River Waltz - Harmony vocals and finger-picked acoustic guitar adds a sweet, soulful atmosphere to a popular song by the Cowboy Junkies.

3. Allways - Sean's original composition for voice and classical guitar; an ode to impermanence, longing, and infinite love.

4. Anchor Song - One of Bjork's classic compositions from her album Debut. Sean arranged the saxophone trio for guitar and adds in a Leo Brouwer classical guitar etude for an introduction. Lindsey's vocal interpretation is stunning.

5. The Fox - A beautiful, a'cappella tone poem by Lindsey. Showcases the extraordinary palette of her vocal instrument as well as her compositional prowess.

6. Two Threads - Another of Sean's originals. A long-evolving piece that started with the two string composition he created at the onset of his 3 string guitar innovations. Meeting Lindsey, he created two more vocal lines to weave around the guitar creating a unique contrapuntal quartet of melodies, each spiced with a bit of Indian classical ornamentation.

7. Once a Lifetime - Started as a poem written by Lindsey, evolved into a tone poem for her voice, and then Sean added the low, jazzy tones of an upright bass. An adventure in improvisational delight, a tribute to falling in love.

8. Everything's Alright - A unique arrangement from Jesus Christ Superstar. Sean accompanies on upright bass and marimba, while Lindsey adds a steady 5/4 gallop on the woodblock in addition to her lovely singing.

9. Georgia - Described by Benjy Wertheimer as his "favorite rendition" of the classic song made popular by Ray Charles, Lindsey's masterful version of 'Georgia' accompanied by Sean's wildly creative 3 string guitar transcription.

10. I Love You Truly - A heartfelt close to the scattering of joy of their debut album, Sean and Lindsey join their two voices in a lush rendition of a traditional song made popular in the movie "It's a Wonderful Life".

Scatter Joy

This is an album of exquisite vocals and virtuosic guitar playing. Sean's passionate and expressive guitar playing perfectly complements Linsdey's smiling, clear-as-a-bell voice. The duo glide through blends of folk, jazz, blues and Indian music with clarity and ease. Sean's voice adds an earthy, grounding tone to the mix. This is music to dance and cry to, for listeners of all ages. The album soothes and nourishes.
