Poetry into Song…

IMG_0641IMG_1454IMG_0854 (2)
During recording sessions for Radio On’s Show Yourself, I’ve been transforming several of my poems into songs – “Lines Written Under the Influence” and “A Scribbling on the Walls” from Cinéma Vérité (A-Minor Press) … “Masterplot” from Inside a Broken Clock (Finishing Line Press) … “Be Here to Love Me” (published as a broadside by MiPOesias) and “Variations on a Theme by Pina Bausch” (published in Iodine Poetry Journal). The songs are (respectively) “Motel Chronicles,” “Black Moon Country,” “Shadows,” “Something for the Writing,” and “Moon and Water”.
Nic Sebastian: vocal on “Moon and Water”
Cheryl Dodds: featured art on cd
Stephen Schoenecker: all sessions engineered, recorded, and mixed at Heritage Music, Bristol, TN.
