ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Tear-downs, older homes being replaced by newer ones, are an epidemic in many of our cities and towns. Mom and pop businesses are being displaced as Main Streets join this epidemic: much-loved local digs are being replaced with multi-story, multi-use commercial buildings. Tear-downs impact the color and spirit of the neighborhoods, not always for the better. The new pricey replacements displace and encumber long-term residents as they age, and change the face of who can afford to move into the neighborhood.

Lifelong singer-songwriter and arranger Linda Marks has been deeply impacted as her Newtonville and Waltham neighborhoods have become tear-down projects.

Enough was inspired by the tear-down epidemic with its opening lines:

"Well, they're tearing down the 1950's house I used to live in
And building two big houses on the lot
And the old town square's transforming and the buildings are five stories
I guess commercial development is hot."

This song looks at the value and importance of having a simple life, and the inner peace and satisfaction that come from "enough" in an era "where bigger is better, and small is tall and medium is grande."

Linda was selected for Artists for the Environment as Lead Artist for her 'Eco-Conscious Original Music Submission" of Enough.
