When I first heard John Prine’s eponymous first record, in 1971, like many others, I was blown away by songs like “Sam Stone” and “Hello in There.” He narrated his poignant vignettes with a plain-spoken and plaintive voice, and his imagery was so compelling that you could clearly see his characters in your mind’s eye.

When I first heard John Prine’s eponymous first record, in 1971, like many others, I was blown away by songs like “Sam Stone” and “Hello in There.” He narrated his poignant vignettes with a plain-spoken and plaintive voice, and his imagery was so compelling that you could clearly see his characters in your mind’s eye.

Several of my friends asked me to record some of my tunes from Wistfully Yours as a soloist and, although I was intrigued, I was also quite daunted knowing that there was no place to hide! Nonetheless, I persevered, and the album is just me singing lead and harmony and my guitar. I have always loved listening to simple two-part harmony as evidenced by the fact that growing up, I constantly listened to the Everly Brothers. I was totally enamored with their natural sounding blend and propulsive rhythmic pulse. I am relieved and glad that I was able to complete the project and I hope that you enjoy the music.
