Where I'm Calling From

 

I'm just beginning work for a thrilling new project—writing a series of songs based on the works of Raymond Carver. As a young man in the 1980s, Carver left a strong mark on me. As part of a continuing series at the Albany Public Library, I will be spending much of the next few months knee deep in Carver country, guitar in hand. I've already written a brace of songs about John Steinbeck's "East of Eden" for Sarah Clark and her great team at APL. Also penned a handful of murder ballads based on actual Albany crimes throughout the years. Glad to be partnering again for this, tentatively titled "Where I'm Calling From: Songs from Raymond Carver." August performance date will be revealed here soon.
