Album Notes
Hakan gives us a voice like John Denver's, wit like John Prine's and the subtle poetry of John Gorka.

The guitar sound is clear and luscious.

The melodies will have you whistling in the shower and the stories will get you wondering about the world in new ways.

David does his own amazing harmonica solos on four tracks.

None of these songs appear on the earlier CDs.

The talented singer/songwriter, Sally Bell Stites, sings great harmonies on tracks 1, 4, 6, 9, 10, 12, & 14.

All songs written by David Hakan, except for Close To Home by Rechelle Malin.



to write a review


So, I relocated to KC and found David's Songwriter Circle. We recently traded CDs and I am compelled to write about David's latest.

His writing embodies all that I know about folk music - I hear Tom Paxton, John Denver, Bob Dylan, and the echoes of others all made new. My absolute favorite on this CD is "Working In Stone", a song about a stone mason's life. I love gospel choir music, and this is a wonderful example of that genre. I kept playing it over and over, and it has the sound of a classic.

Good job, David.

Loose Upon the Street
Another great album by terrific singer/songwriter David Hakan. This one will warm your heart with its poignant lyrics and fulfilling melodies. The title track, Loose Upon the Street, will take your breath away.


david hakan is keeping folk music alive in kansas city with his newest release..
david hakan is keeping folk music alive in kansas city with his newest release..."loose upon the street". david has been carrying the 'folk by the campfire' torch vigorously for years in the midwest, particularly kansas city. On this album he is like a madman shouting from every corner the laments of the common and not so common 'man' with songs like "United Nations of America"... a futuristic look back at the present Bush administration's big stick policies, "Engine 7 Ladder One"...which documents 9/11 and a firemans heroism...(a harrowing song), and "Small Rural Hometown"...a beautifully crafted meloncholic look at the casualties of so-called progress and expansion.
David hits on alot of other less weightier themes. He has a touching song about family via the symbolism of making chili on "Home Cooking".
"The Getaway" and the title cut are also highlights. "High Country" is also a fave. David has the excellent work of producer engineer Steve Phillips (who also adds some instrumentation to some tracks) and his backing vocalist is an excellent compliment to david's folkie style (Sally Bell). Highly recommended! Thanks david for some great music and for keeping the campfires burning with tunes for all these years. : ) .......forrest
