Plant New Dreams

by R. Mark Fogelson

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mark worked with the earth, as a farmer, for 17 harvest moons and in that time he learned that we are made to be creative beings. His "folk/country" style of singing and finger- picking guitar blends naturally into stories from what he knows best: people, land and life. He believes that songs come from the universe and that as a songwriter; his job is to let a song become what it "wants" to be, rather than what "his head" wants it to be.

When he and his wife were thinking of moving from Minnesota to Arizona, he asked a giant redwood tree in Northern California what to do. It replied, "Leap and the net will appear!" So the adventure began! While driving to a folk festival, during the moving process, the title "Plant New Dreams" came and felt appropriate; because planting new dreams is what we do! Life can be lived as an adventure. It's our choice.

Mark performs music in the United States, especially in the Southwest during winter months and the Northern states in the summer. During his live shows, Mark explains how most songs came to him, and listeners are truly captivated by his narratives. His songs range in theme from family, as in "Sometimes It Seems" and "My Brown-Eyed Girl", to new beginnings, as described in "Plant New Dreams" as well as endings, as in "It's OK To Die". Mark also brings smiles to audiences' faces with songs like "Poet's Day" and "If Jesus Was Norwegian".

Listeners find his music approachable, heartwarming, humorous and thought provoking. Sit back and listen to the quiet stories and emotions that linger in his songs.
