ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
We're Jeff Oxford & Tim Perry. As in the Oxford Perry Project. We're a couple of aspiring Grand Rapids, Michigan songwriters. Tim is the word guy and Jeff cranks out the music and studio production. We're both family guys, and for the most part our music has its origins in the maelstrom that is family life in the 21st century.

The Basement Bytes is actually a collection of songwriting demos. We're not really interested in being performers, per se. We'd be quite content to let others record our material. In the meantime, The Basement Bytes stands as our musical kick-at-the-cat.

We met about a year and a half ago at a local songwriters' group run by Grand Rapids indie singer/songwriter Lucy Webster. Tim is strong on lyrics. Jeff is a born composer. It wasn't long before we both realized that collaborating made real sense.

We work with a mix of musical textures that range from folk and bluegrass to rock and blues. Think of what the influences of CSNY, Eric Clapton, The Byrds, Dan Fogelberg, James Taylor and Gordon Lightfoot might do for a couple of married guys with acoustic guitars. Sometimes it's fun. Sometimes it's somber. It's music that not only sticks in your head...but also your heart. Lyrically, much of it can be summed up as "simple songs in the key of Dad."

Acoustically, basements aren't exactly the perfect place to record. But for creating, jamming and storytelling, they do just fine. We are pleased to present this home-built, computer-recorded, cellar-chilled musical chronicle for your listening pleasure.

We hope you enjoy The Basement Bytes.
