About this project:
(Photo above by Cynthia Dobe)
When I met Adam Steinberg in 2001, I knew I'd met the person who would brilliantly produce and co-write the record I'd been writing and wanting to make for many years. The record, Mr. Heart, was executive-produced by a generous fan, released in 2002, and was met with kudos from many critics, reviewers, songwriting contests and fans. I released a live CD in 2004 which was recorded at performances during the two years following the release of Mr. Heart. When the time came for another studio effort, I found myself without the funds to do so and set about fundraising efforts through a grass-roots email campaign. By 2007, I raised enough money to begin recording and went into the studio to self-produce. After many months, it just wasn't coming together as I had hoped. I felt I didn't have all the right songs and decided to put the project aside until I could figure out the right direction. Shortly thereafter, after moving from NYC to Boston, I found work in real estate and continued to write and play out when the spirit moved. Finally, in 2009, the old adage, 'If it 'aint broke, don't fix it" reared it's head and I reached out to Adam, who I hadn't been in touch with for several years, to bridge the gap and set about making another studio record. The following year was spent writing and working on pre-production for what will finally be, "the new CD." On February 5-6, 2011, basic tracks were recorded at Woolly Mammoth Sound in Waltham, Massachusetts and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of those 2 days. The players include Sarab Singh from the band Harper Blynn on drums, Jeff St. Pierre on bass and Adam and me on guitars. We will continue to record and finish the CD at both Woolly Mammoth and Adam's home studio. The funds raised during this new campaign will pay for mixing and mastering, for pressing the CDs, and for the promotional efforts to allow this record to fly. Come fly away with me!
