To Our Fans,
Here's the EP album contents for all of you who aren't cynical and are looking for something new, something real, not flashy but something in the American folk-rock and original alternative rock tradition but unique all by itself. We have many styles. The ideals of the 60s still live in all ways, don't mistake cynicism for truth.
Freedom for All - A song written to all those who are struggling against the injustices of daily life wherever they are. The vocal is influenced by Neil Young or Scott McKenzie of the 60s song, "San Francisco".
Blue Jean Baby - Musical rock story about a woman who just couldn't get enough. Guitar riff and mood influenced by Led Zeppelin. Original blues-like.
Lonely Boy - Young man's lament against isolation, loneliness, and feeling different and alone but he still stands strong. Influenced by the Beatles and John Lennon.
Fire and Light - A pop/rock tune about love that will make you happy and your heart sing. Influenced by Frank Sinatra, Neil Young, and Natalie Merchant.
Instruments used: acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, voice, drums and percussion.
These songs were recorded in one take, with no extra time spent in the recording studio. What you hear is really what the musicians sound like; voices and instruments. No excessive over-production was used. We tried to keep these songs as honest and as smart as we possibly could, we wanted to have a musical conversation between us and you, the listener, our fan. We hope that these songs become as meaningful to you as they are to us. We also hope that they will encourage you with the personal stories they tell.
It is still possible to change the world through music!
Love and hugs,
Michael and Wendy Los Angeles, California 2014 "Smart Folk and Original Rock"
