I never sat with the cool kids in the cafeteria. I was a weird kid. While everyone else was couple skating around the rink to the latest pop ballad or head banging in the back of the station wagon to some crunchy metal, I was listening to weird folk music. I have always loved weird folk music.
My new record is all originals, delivered with a voice and a guitar. There is nothing flashy or elaborate with the production. It is one microphone and a song.
If you ate lunch with the cool kids, you aren’t going to get this. If you were the fat kid, the nerd, a loser, or a freak, this record is for you. All of us oddballs grew up to be weird folk.
If you want to have a nerdy conversation about the multitude of ways to hold a coffee mug, there is a song here for you. If you enjoy the quasi-spiritual concept of Jesus Christ having an American Thanksgiving, there is a song here for you. If you want to get sentimental about your younger days spent playing weird folk music in the basement while drinking beers with your buddies, there is a song here for you.
