ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Originally from Nova Scotia, Canada I now live in Arizona. I grew up in a village where almost everybody played an instrument, and I began singing on the radio at age five! Did the teen rock band, gravitated to being a solo "folksinger", contemplated hustling a career in it - but instead joined the Army, got married and pretty much stopped playing. Five decades later, for our 50th wedding anniversary, my wife surprised me with a new Martin OM-21 flat-top. Getting back to music awakened the sleeping poet in me - I published three books of poetry in the 70s - 80s, including "Beothuck Poems (Oberon Press, Ottawa 1976) a meditation on the genocide visited on the Beothuck Indians of what is now Newfoundland, Canada. Poetry turns now into song lyrics, the melodies that have always run like background music in my brain now supply the chords and notes that my clumsy fingers pick off the fretboard ... what else can an old man do, but sing and play. "Beach" is made up of music I have written myself, or wish I had written. I've sung these songs in my friends' homes, at open mics, at the "Spare Change" concerts I do to raise money for Wounded Warriors Foundation, anywhere they'll let me in. I hope you'll let me sing them for you.
