LYRIC ILLUSTRATIONS

A friend of mine recently suggested that I sell hand-written lyrics on fine linen paper as Holiday gifts...and as I made my first few, they evolved into something that I wished to now do permanently. 

I discovered that writing the lyrics by hand was not the wisest choice, as I kept running out of space, and they were uneven, running either uphill or down. Short of inventing a font that is exactly like my handwriting, I searched the internet and began downloading fonts that I felt were artistically compatible with the themes expressed in each song. I then chose to draw over the printed lyrics to make them more interesting, and then I added artwork with conté crayons. A coll new idea was born...which I will call lyric illustrations. Each is unique. These of some examples of my recent work that just shipped out.

BRAND NEW WORLD CD - The Return of a Classic

I have a few copies of "Brand New World" available for sale, for those who do not like digital downloads. This CD is the third in a trilogy of CDs produced by the late, great Steve Burgh, who produced Steve Forbert's critically acclaimed debut album, "Alive on Arrival." In fact, one of Forbert's songs appears of this CD, given new life with Spanish lyrics written by my late mother, Livia. The original song was titled "Listen to Me," and in Spanish, it became "Escuchame."
Steve Burgh Also produced my debut album "Carolyne Mas," as well as my second album "Hold On." This album was recorded in late 1998 to early 1999 - twenty years from the time when we first met at Kenny's Castaways in New York, and nineteen years after recording together for the first time.
Special guests of this album include Charlie Giordano (now with Springsteen, but who toured and recorded with me back in the "old days"), Charlton Pettus (now with Tears for Fears, but who produced my album "Reason Street," 1993), Daniel Rey (The Ramones), and Sue Hadjopoulos (percussion, Joe Jackson), as well as many other fine musicians.
I am especially proud of my cover of the Dictator's song, "Stay with Me," which I had wanted to record for years.

"A great voice, even better today, a great personality, and exciting songs that touch the soul." ~ Blue Bottazzi Beat "The rich notes in the booklet tell in great detail her encounters and love affairs with these songs, part of a "time travel" which includes several previously unpublished original compositions as well as a few that are known and revisited with grit, class and sexiness between sinuous swing, scat, blues, Latin flavors and touching confessional ballads." ~ Alfredo Marziano, rockol.it

"BEYOND MERCURY" - CD

beyondmercurycd

This is my first career-spanning retrospective: 17 tracks from 1979 through 2001, half of them never-before-heard. This CD includes tracks from my five studio albums, plus many newer, previously-unreleased album cuts, as well as demos done on the 16 track home studio of friend and collaborator, Mark Johnson. I then worked with AHA Studios in Nashville to master all of these tracks onto one CD. The photos are all personal ones, and there is a complete list of credits inside. The cover was painted by me when I ran out of ideas for a cover. When my father died in 2002, I decided to dedicate this CD to him, and I added as the last track, a song sung by him and recorded more than 50 years ago, named "Foggy, Foggy Dew." He is accompanied by my Aunt, who now has Alzheimer's, on the piano.The first pressing of "BEYOND MERCURY" was made in November of 2003, and it was the first release for "SAVAGE JULIET RECORDS." The name "SAVAGE JULIET" came from the label on the inside of a overcoat given to me by a fan from Springfield, MO. It had been his grandmother's. Once the name for a long-age tailor, it sounded to me like a great name for a label of a different sort! So, 15 years later...well, the rest is history. Thank you Gene Shipman, for the coat, wherever you are! This CD is currently out of print. Download is available from CD Baby.

"BRAND NEW WORLD" - CD

brandnew2

Produced by the late and great Steve Burgh, and released September 16, 2005, this CD contains the studio versions of the demos of "Little by Little," and "Be Your Girl" which appear on "Beyond Mercury," as well as the original arrangement for "When You're Near," which was recorded in 1993's "Reason Street," in more of an "acoustic" style. There is actually a third arrangement of this song recorded as a demo in 1985, but it was unfortunately lost over the years. I do have an obscure live accourtic version #3 from "The Speak Easy" in NYC, 1985, with congas (!) and David Landau ("Carolyne Mas," "Hold On") on lead guitar. I think "When You're Near" is one of the songs I'm not done with yet! It was written at the end of 1981, for a boy named Locke Wallace, who was the most handsome guy I had ever seen. I have copies of this CD for sale on eBay where I will personally autograph them for you. You can buy the download at CD Baby.
