ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A Raconteur of Life, Just Trippin' On The Strings...

Scooter d.'s songs illuminate many of life's reflective moments, challenges and opportunities, by weaving the threads of life into the tapestry of his thought-provoking Folk/Americana storyteller music.

The songs are eclectic and range from country music themes to folk/Americana music themes, including love and loss as well as pub songs and satirical reflections.

The initial song “Simple Man Writing Simple Songs” introduces Scooter d.’s style and overall direction for writing songs.

The title track "The Old Home Place" tends to bring back unique memories for the listener, as they reflect on their past ( and perhaps faded... ) memories of their own "old home place".

Perhaps some of the stories on this debut CD will resonate with your own personal experiences and provide a moment of reflective pause…

Pondering The Tunes…

Scooter d’s raconteur storyteller songs provide simple melodies, with descriptive, metaphorically-driven lyrics. The following is a brief thought on each of the songs from Scooter d., just in case you were "pondering the tunes…"

“Simple Man Writing Simple Songs” - a song that provides an introduction to Scooter d. and his style of music.

“What You’re Looking For Too” - a song about a new, likely young, relationship that has a level of self-doubt and receives some reassurance from a partner.

“Do Not Spill My Tipple” - every songwriter needs a pub song, of sorts… ‘Tipple’ is an alcoholic drink.

“The Old Home Place” - we all have memories and images of the home we grew up in, even if we moved around a bit. This is a reflective song about visiting one’s old home place and observing the changes brought about over time.

“This Park I Call My Home” - there are many people down on their luck, for a variety of reasons. This is a song inspired by a gentleman living rough and ‘getting by’. I had stopped, during a bicycle ride on a bike path and asked him if I could offer him a meal. He was happy for the offer and literally pulled an old guitar out of his cart and played a very intricate tune.

“Pedals To The Metal” - whether we ride a pedal tractor, or a tricycle at some point when we are young tots, our imagination provides much of the motivation for riding around in circles… This is song about a young lad with a vivid imagination, as he rides his old school cast-iron pedal tractor.

“An Angel Called My Name” - at times, many of us ‘feel’ the presence of someone with us, if only for a brief moment of reflection or guidance...

“Genetic Echoes” - this song was inspired by all the advancements of medical research, along with a concern about mankind manipulating the genetic codes.

“Real Deep Water” - a song about a mother who is always protecting her boys and as a result, tends to take a lot of heat for their reckless ways.

“The Daughters Of His Daughter’s Son” - a song about an older gentleman enjoying a day of celebration, as he watches his two great-granddaughters laughing and playing outside.

“The Drone Delivery Jig” - a quirky song about the seemingly endless applications for the recent concepts of drones, even being used as remote delivery devices for smaller items ( including delivering beer to ice fishing shacks… in the northern climates ).

“Just A Couple Notes Before I Go” - a song about a musician or an author in their latter days...
