about

This is not really an official album , but more of an eclectic collection of 5 newer songs that I recorded this summer upstate in Auburn , NY (see the credits below ). Two of the songs (tracks 2 and 4 ) are country /americana leaning, one (track 3 ) is a children's song , one (the first song ) is a folk ballad , and the last one ( track 5 ) a more acoustic pop/ folk rock song . So there is no real theme to this " EP ". I just wanted to record and put the songs out there for folks to give a listen . They are only available digitally, though I suppose I could burn a hard copy for anyone who really wants one in that format . So please give a listen and feel free to comment or offer feedback. I am open to remixing any song where I hear a common comment or critique about levels . I also want to i give a big thanks to the the musicians and engineers from Central NY State area who helped me with recording .

Track Name: The Moon Won't Fall Down
A moonless sky lets the stars shine bright .
So wish upon a star , it could be your lucky night .
And if Mother Nature decides to be your friend ,
You might find a treasure at the rainbow's end .

Like a traveling circus saved by its clown .
All will not be lost if some are found .
So have a little faith and stand your ground .
And don't worry , the moon won't fall down .

One bad apple won't upset the cart .
And you won't be heatless if you have a heart .
And you know that babies don't grow on trees.
And though the moon is yellow , it's not made of cheese.

Like a traveling circus saved by its clown .
All will not be lost if some are found .
So have a little faith and stand your ground .
And don't worry , the moon won't fall down .

So dot your i's and cross your t's
And if you ask for something , be sure to say please .
Be kind to your friends and show them that you care,
If you have a little extra , make sure that you share .

Like a traveling circus saved by its clown .
All will not be lost if some are found .
So have a little faith and stand your ground .
And don't worry , the moon won't fall down .

So when you hear the raindrops at your window at night ,
Tucked under your covers, pulled up tight .
Let the sound of the falling rain lull you to sleep .
And have pleasant dreams , ah but not too deep.

Like a traveling circus saved by its clown .
All will not be lost if some are found .
So have a little faith and stand your ground .
And don't worry , the moon won't fall down .
So don't worry , the moon won't fall down .
