It’s been a while – didja miss me? Sorry to leave you hanging for so long, but I’VE BEEN BUSY and there really wasn’t much to say. Now it’s the Merry Month of May, 2016, and things are definitely heating up. In fact, there is something rather LARGE to talk about. For the past year or so, I have been working on a CD of my newest songs with my son, Will Wisniewski (a/k/a Isosceles Kramer), producing, engineering and adding instruments. Will and I are almost finished with the CD, Bear River, and it will be released in late June. We have finished tracking with yours-truly on vocals, acoustic guitar, and trumpet, Will on bass, drums & percussion, lead & rhythm electric & acoustic guitars, banjo, clarinet, organ, piano, tambourine, and background vocal, Lucy Maud on violin, Emily Litten on Saxophone, and Paddy Cline on harp. We will be mastering it and finishing the packaging in the next month. The cover art, a sample of which is included above, was drawn by Lucius Wisniewski, an extremely talented graphic artist (who also happens to be my son). The running order for the CD is: Rendezvous (Bear River Song), The Road, Flower People, Out In the Cold, Lip Service, After All Is Said and Done, A Song for Diversity, Seriously Thinking, Gypsy Wind, The New Normal, What You Really Need.
Rendezvous (Bear River Song) has been re-recorded in a new and slightly different from the version from the one that is featured elsewhere on this website, but a quick listen should give you an idea of the general direction the music has been heading. This recording has been a long time coming and I am really, really happy and proof the sound that we have achieved. Will IS a genius, just like it said on the cover of his middle school notebook, way back when. You can find recordings of songs by Isosceles Kramer (which I highly recommend) by going to Bandcamp.
So keep your eyes peeled for more news regarding the CD release!
As usual, THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
