ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Stand Up For America” is an album of contemporary protest written and sung with obvious conviction. Ray Burkhart has compiled a CD full of heart-felt images relating to the problems America faces. The variety of styles makes the stories interesting from the first note of every song. From bare accapella to full-blown orchestrations, his message is clear and to the point. “We have a lot of work to do.”
Ray Burkhart has performed throughout the world with various music and theater ensembles. “Stand Up For America” has him in the studio, and on top of his game. These songs need to be heard immediately.
The soulful “Katrina” will recall the emptiness felt when our country failed to come quickly to the need of so many humans. “Gotta Stand Up”, is a reggae salute revealing the apathetic attitude of our nation. “Why Worry About The Moon”, dealing with mismanaged resources.
On the lighter side, “Paintball Freak Of Coney Island” is homage of the genre of the ‘Carney Life’, as told by the hard-working ‘Freak’ himself.
Ray Burkhart’s music sparks courage in the listener and should be heard by all. The music becomes eclectic. The theme 'We Can Do Better' and it’s time to get started.
Take a listen!!!

I messed up. I want this to be rated 5 stars.
Not 2
I would give it 7 if I could.

John Wilkie

eclectic, fresh, songwriter with humor and chops a la Leonard Cohen
This music is dynamic and fun to listen to. The songs are slices of life that resonate in their texture and variety while bringing topical political and social issues to the fore. Very nicely arranged and delivered with big chops. If you like the Gorillaz' Feel Good, Inc. you'll love this album.

Even my father loved this one...
Even my father loved this one. It's the first time we ever liked the same stuff. He says it reminds him of the 60's. And all of a sudden he thinks I'm totally cool. Like the other night, he actually offered me his car, even before I asked for it. Weird!
