ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Crooked Pictures" is full of haunting images and lovely melodies. Sheehy's dark baritone voice is perfectly suited to material as diverse as the country-ish opener "Leaves Without Knowing" and the spare "I Know." And Sheehy really shines as a lyricist, with his closer "Five Believers" exemplifying his mixture of humor and pathos about life's changes.
-Dan Kening, The Chicago Tribune's Metromix.com

Heartland songsmith Mark Sheehy's first solo CD, Crooked Pictures, is full of haunted houses and lonely roads evoked by finger plucked guitar and skirling organ. It's a well-crafted, eloquent, and heartfelt contribution to singer-songwriter rock in these parts.
-Monica Kendrick, The Chicago Reader's "Spot Check"

Playing hard-hitting songs for hard-hit people, Sheehy's music bears a heavy load of frustrations and shattered dreams. Whether he's imparting his experiences with simple guitar or off-center, almost jazzy arrangements, his songs cut to the quick.
-Chad Driscoll, listen.com

Sheehy's lines reveal a capacity for some pretty evocative storytelling, and his stolid, masculine vocals are well suited to his rustic, everyday-life lyrics, and can be endearing, especially when he starts singing "bum bum bum's" like some cross between Will Rogers and Michael Stipe.
-Darryl Cater, chicagogigs.com

Mark Sheehy is a folk-rock everyman who writes and records songs practically dripping with life experience. You can feel a lifetime of hard knocks and lessons learned coming through in his performances.
-David Joost, Home Pride Productions
