Old School's Back from Underground
So you've never heard of me and you stumbled upon my CD by accident you say? I'm o.k. with that. I'll take an accidental foot in the door over total obscurity any day. Foot number two would involve your spending the next 4 ½ minutes of your life listening to the track samples over there on the left(I hope). The writing of these songs and the production of this CD became a project for me that fell somewhere between passion and obsession. The end result is a scrapbook of thoughts & impressions pasted together with melodies that I hope you'll find yourself humming when you least expect it. For those of you still reading this...my last name is pronounced Shim-a-lew-ski. I grew up listening to bands and musicians who didn't feel the need to define themselves either by way of specific style or genre. Sometimes you just write what you write and it is what it is. Joni Mitchell, Todd Rundgren, Traffic, The Band, Counting Crows. You know what I'm talking about. I'm not saying that I'm blazing any new trails here but the music on this disc certainly is what it is. See how that all ties together? Old School's Back From Underground is a self produced CD with eight of the nine songs performed, recorded, engineered and mixed in my home studio. - Pros & Cons of total independence you ask? The Pros -total artistic freedom -no pesky focus groups -no band mates to trash my living room -I get to hoard all this fame for myself! The Cons -it got lonely sometimes -if someone doesn't like it, I've got no one else to pin the blame on -working too close to the refrigerator If you like what you hear, I hope you add me to your library. Someone's got to like it...it might as well be you! Thanks a bunch - Ken.
