The 6th floor atrium of Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh was transformed into a coffeehouse tonight, with live music, comfortable couches, and plenty of treats for patients' families to enjoy. In addition to the folks seated in front of us, we had listeners on the three floors above, whose waves we returned, between strums. The monthly coffeehouse is presented by the Sonny Pugar Memorial, Inc., named after a local drummer who shared the stage and studio with many other artists over the course of his career. What a beautiful way to honor his legacy of communing through music.
"Goody Shoes" (coming 2014)
Last time the leaves started changing colors, we were celebrating the release of our debut CD of original folk, country and blues. This fall, we are recording 12 new songs and we're very fortunate to have some great folks helping us. Will Russell, of Electric Wilburland in Ithaca, a genius who has worked with many talented musicians, including Joe Crookston, will be mixing and mastering our tracks. Julie Stunden, a wonderful painter, is creating original works of art for the front and back of the CD case, based on photographs taken by our friend, Faith Selzer. Replication and packaging will be handled by Oasis Disc Manufacturing.
In addition to funds pledged through a successful Indiegogo campaign, we are grateful for the words of encouragement, enthusiastic applause, and virtual "likes" we have received. All of this will help to sustain us over the next few months while we are holed up in the studio. And when we re-emerge, we will be clutching beautiful cardboard cases with CDs tucked away inside. Kind of like the musical equivalent of acorns in the shell : )
"The Squirrel Hillbillies" (2012)
Our self-titled debut CD of acoustic folk, country and blues features 12 original songs driven by lyrics, grounded in guitar, and embellished with vocal harmonies, mandolin, ukulele, bass and percussion. Tracks have been played on radio programs in the US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
Hard copies are available in Pittsburgh at Acoustic Music Works and the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. You can also purchase them directly from us at any of our gigs, or download songs from CD Baby, Amazon, or iTunes. Donated copies are in circulation at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and the Mansfield-Richland County Public Library and Lakewood Public Library in Ohio.
