Leaf Day Boys/CD

Leaf Day Boys is now available on compact disc here in our shop… and at Bandcamp

This record was written and recorded from March 2020 to September 21. It features the solid but playful drumming of Jared Nixon and the amazing soulful vocals of Ann Gulian. Without them I wouldn’t have been able to achieve what I wanted.

Leaf Day Boys is a document of what was going on in my head for a year and a half. Reflections on the past, present and future. Songs of love, politics, and remembrance. I hope you explore it and I hope you dig it.

Song Of The Week/ Ocean Bound

Here’s one for the inevitable eventuality that the cold climate daily hustler…and thay he or she will desire this destination… whether it is a possible reality or a stoned cold dream.

It features CJ Masters on a very sweet pedal steel guitar. Beautiful harmony by
Gina De Siena. And playful drums from Ray Herrmann.

Ocean Bound

Everybody’s ocean bound
Sea salt healing wounds all around
I think it’s time you come on down

Because when it’s such a struggle
Just to get out of bed
And get your head into the day
I think you’ve had enough
Of telephones and heartaches
From no cold call takers

Everybody tries so hard
Everybody takes it on the chin so much
I think it’s time you duck the punch

Because when it’s such a struggle
Just turning the key
And get your feet out of the door
I think you’ve had enough
Of sandwich boards and handouts
To no sidewalk takers
Everybody’s Ocean Bound

Now when you walk out in the water
You know it could go either way

And when it’s such a struggle
Just to get out of bed
And get your head into the day
I think you’ve had enough
Of telephones and heartaches
From no cold call takers

Everybody’s ocean bound
Everybody’s ocean bound
Everybody’s ocean bound
Everybody’s ocean bound

Song Of The Week

As For The Time

I get in and I get out
I doubt if you would even
had noticed
I take little bits from
You’re really not aware of
what I’ve stolen

Except for the time
And how it wears you down

All the years you played it safe
With something that you
could fall back on
A bed of roses feels like nails
When you fail to realize
all that is gone

Except for the time
And how it wears you down
The things you regret
The things you might have done
The things you could have done

It may be dark but it’s not late enough
for you to go to sleep on every dream
So go ahead and shine a light
Right on the spot where you wish to be

And as for the time
And how it’s ticking down
There’s nothing you can do
It gets taken from you
As for the time
And how it wears you down
The things you regret
The things you might have done
The things you could have done

I get in and I get out
I doubt if you would even
had noticed

Leaf Day Boys Is Here!

Leaf Day Boys

There was a lot of time to be distracted. A lot of time to be manipulated. But also a lot of time to be inspired, if you chose to be.

Music is the great balm. A constant. It is what fueled me then and what still fuels me now. My muse remains. And though she is no longer of this earth, she will always occupy my soul. My heart.

As Victor Hugo said, “To love another person is to see the face of God.” I will go along with that. And so is the music.

This record was written and recorded from March 2020 to September 21. It features the solid but playful drumming of Jared Nixon… and the amazing soulful vocals of Ann Gulian. Without them I wouldn’t have been able to achieve what I wanted to.

Leaf Day Boys is a document of what was going on in my head for a year and a half. Reflections on the past, present and future. Songs of love and remembrance…internal and external affairs.

I hope you explore it and I hope you dig it.

The Sky…She Sleeps With One Eye Open

While the world may have shrunk in the last 20 years, The Spaces Between us have suddenly had to be a lot bigger. A trip to the Dollar Store, even a visit to the First Floor of the block, have been a lot more difficult, while recreation has been left to merely Circling Round The Town under a Blood Red Sun. Time to stop walking The Highwire in the Lonely War of lockdown and isolation and enjoy the summer’s breath of love on your face again.
The Sky…She Sleeps With One Eye Open, is the debut album from the Connecticut/Yorkshire combo of of Marc Teamaker and Iain Clarke. A collection of 12 songs created somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic, filled with love, warmth, soul and heart, dipping into their mutual love of pop, soul, funk, folk and vibe. Before Winter Returns, take some time to stand in the sun, as the sky sleeps once more.
