Album Notes
Roberta Schultz is a songwriter, singer, guitar player and poet who makes up one-third of the women's folk trio, Raison D'Etre. Over the past 25 years, Raison D'Etre has recorded many of Roberta's songs on their 9 projects. But sometimes, a tune is too personal, or the wrong genre, or not quite the three-part harmony vehicle Raison D'Etre favors.

"One Small Step" begins at the 1969 moon landing, traveling backwards and inside out of the 20th Century through backyard beaches, Saturday matinees featuring "The Blob," and safaris to the local fishing hole. The songwriter says goodbye to a favorite author, wonders how a new President will manage to skate on thin ice, and ponders the pervasive violence and climate change facing younger generations. All the while standing tall to become a "lightning rod of awe," Schultz welcomes the grief and glory of her trek on Mother Earth. The final cut on the recording is a bluesy setting of E.A. Robinson's poem from 1897, "Richard Cory."

Arranger and keyboardist, Richard Putnam, adds his magic to the journey.
