ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As a long-time LGBT historian and producer of a radio show sharing the music of our culture, it was only natural to have developed my favorite artists, and near the top is Michael Callen. Three of his iconic songs were written in collaboration with Marsha Malamet. Those songs, "Love Don't Need a Reason" (also written with Peter Allen), "A Love Worth Fighting For" and "The Healing Power of Love" I place among the most important anthems in the history of LGBT music, iconic in both nature and endurance.

That Ms. Malamet was a co-writer of what I consider three major anthems of our movement is incredible in and of itself, and an enormous gift to our community. However, our struggles continue. In current times, amid victories for same-sex marriage, there is a struggle for acceptance. This is not only from society as a whole but within the minds and hearts of many gay and lesbian people who need to develop the inner strength to know that we really deserve the rights we seek.

Consequently, there is certainly a need for more music where the lyrics deal openly with elements of our lives, and Malamet has been developing her own music in recent years. Her singing and production and arrangements are exquisitely done. You may not notice at first the same-sex references in the lyrics, as you will be soaking in the naturalness of it all. The music on this EP represents not only her writing but her giving voice to the emotions of our lives, done as the title implies, in a natural way.
