Ukraine #1

I have just realized that the most page views to my site this week were from Ukraine. So...
Привіт українців! (Pryvit ukraïntsiv)

Continuing the theme that "times sure have changed," this globalized connected world never ceases to amaze. After Ukraine, tied for second most visits are Colombia and Russia, and the USA is fourth. As far as I know, I don't personally know anyone in Ukraine, Russia, or Colombia, but it's somehow comforting (or at least interesting) to know my music is reaching a few people there.

Welcome all international vistors!


The Times Have a'Changed

The Times Have a'Changed by Emerald Elk

I just recorded 4 songs in a little studio in Seoul.
One is here for your listening pleasure and feedback. I got in touch with my folk roots with it. Obviously (from the title) it references and channels a bit of Bob Dylan.

The rest of the batch will undergo more mixing, adding, subtracting, and rigorous consumer testing.

Give me work or give me death

Here's a singalong with my new song!
"Give me work or give me death"

Patrick Henry

Some current, and timeless, inspiration.

"It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, "Peace! Peace!" -- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! ...Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? ...I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!" http://www.historyplace.com/speeches/henry.htm
