The Collaborators: Part One

As I continue to work on my next CD over the coming months I’d like to feature many of the people who kindly brought themselves to bear on my project.

After all the writing, after the rehearsing, after the recording I decided to pull back and take a more critical look at lyrics.

My good friend JoEllen Kwiatek has given more than I could have imagined sifting through every line, phrase, syllable and caesura- in the meanwhile sifting through a host of my more personal issues.

JoEllen’s last book of poetry, Study for Necessity (see here http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00T03AMCO/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?ie=UTF8&btkr=1 and here http://www.uiowapress.org/books/2015-spring/study-necessity.htm) won the Iowa Poetry Prize.

It is frankly stunning.
