A Review of the CD

We just came across glowing review of the CD “Tabula Rasa” and the event night of the CD release party printed in the December 23 issue of the “The Sullivan county Democrat”

What a great Christmas gift!  Thanks to Tamara and the folks at the Sullivan County Democrat, and thanks again to Stacey and all the folks at the Dancing Cat Saloon in Bethel  for making the CD release party and  a great night happen.

Wishing everyone a happy new year. We intend on making alot more music this year, and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.


A word about the CD and a small request…

It’s been a long cold lonely winter.. George Harrison

Yeah well goodbye old man winter. Hey spring, so glad to see you back! Out with the winter funk and the winter junk. It’s time to get back to playing!

And the CD is back on track and it’s this close to being completely done. I was waiting for Sara to write a few words for the CD cover copy. I kept after her about the text to finish up the CD. She stated “I’m not that good with words…”  I thought that was pretty funny.  Jeez you could’ve fooled me, Sara; I think you do pretty good with putting word together when they’re in songs….

So I recently got back to finalizing the master.

And after all the time and effort producing  the CD, and hearing all these songs about a thousand times each, I wasn’t much looking forward to running through them again, much as I love them.

Actually what happened was, once again,  I couldn’t stop listening to them. I could be Sara’s biggest fan – I can’t ever get enough of her voice.

Anyway the master goes to duplication in a day or two, after a few good final listens before committing to manufacture.

But as of Saturday (4/19), the CD is available for download on Itunes, Amazon, Spotify and the rest of the web. And life is great!

So I have a favor to ask on behalf of Sara and the band. We’ve heard many of you say you love the music and the CD. If you do, please go to your favorite music store, (be it Itunes, Spotify, Amazon, CD Baby, or where-ever) and under reviews, if you could post a few kind words about how much you do like it, it will mean an awful lot. That’s all we’re asking.

But maybe, if you haven’t already and feel so inclined and supportive, maybe buy a download.  Or wait to pick up a CD at a show.

But if you don’t that’s cool too. Just please come out and join us. We really love playing and we really love sharing music with you.

Thanks for listening and thanks for supporting Sara.


Sara had this quote put on the CD:

“Dance when you’re broken open. Dance if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.”-Rumi

This is my favorite song from the CD.
