ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A rarity in today's world, this musical genius creates real music from the heart and performs all music on real instruments, mostly vintage ones.This is homegrown organic music based in American Roots with a modern edge. His lyrics are deep and thoughtful, funny and sarcastic. There is a theme running through all of his music-- love over fear, peace over war, and respect for all life. You will hear old school rock & roll, blues, reggae, funk, jazz, latin, r&b, instrumentals, country and spoken word. Groovy music for groovy people. If you like Stevie Wonder, Beatles, Stones, Van Morrison, Tom Waits, Dr. John, The Band…..then you will love this music.

Excellent Music
This is an album one never wants to turn off. From the first jingle of the bell to the one which closes the arc it is a joy to listen. The lyrics are outstanding as usual for this artist. Thank you, Steve Grandinetti, for another masterpiece, pleasing ears, mind, soul and heart.
