Folk Music

A 10-song compilation of music made between the summer of 2009 and the summer of 2010. It is a snapshot of the stuff I was involved with during my senior year at UML.

ALBUM LINER NOTES:
The past year has been an exciting time for me musically. I had the opportunity to tour and record with the most devoted and talented musicians that I have ever met. The Goosepimp Orchestra is a group of 8 guys, but we would have no reason to make our music without our beautiful, passionate, helpful, and funky extended family. Thanks for your infinite support yall! Enjoy “Strap On,” from our latest Fallout Shelter performance on WUML, and “Take The Wheel,” from our self-recorded and self-released full length album The Biggest Bang. I also had the pleasure to help Nick get The Sinbusters off the ground, by drumming for a year and a half, and recording and mixing Prime Blowout, our 8 song EP. The songs here come from that album, recorded at Friendly Square in Medford and a few spots in Lowell. Late in 2009 I began recording spoken word poems written by Nate the Poet and adding music to them later. “The River Bank Bend” was recorded by a river in Colorado, and the music was added once back in Lowell. Underneath “Beauty,” the UML String Project can be heard warming up and tuning. I am also grateful to Brett Apitz for helping me record “Cherrapunji” and “Country Music” in the UML facilities, and to all the musicians who helped create this makeshift band that I call Folkin’ A. You will also hear two songs from a brand new project called President Soup. We did a version of “It Dont Mean A Thing” at Centro in May 2010, and an original tune called “Propaganda,” recorded later that month at the 119 Gallery in Lowell. Thanks to all the musicians that have shared their passion, and to you for listening.
