Product Notes

Olmec is a singer/songwriter who was born on a farm on the Texas/Louisiana border. His love of music took root there, in the Black Gospel he heard in church and the blues and country music he heard on the radio. As a young man he traveled to New York. Once there, he began to hear the name Huddie Ledbetter, or Leadbelly--a name Olmec knew as a part of local musical lore back in Caddo Parish. For Leadbelly's music to be known and respected by musicians in New York was, to Olmec, a revelation. It made songwriting at once more appealing and more approachable, as he recognized it's power to communicate; to bridge gaps; to express meaningful ideas. Today Olmec is a bard poet musician. His songs express a healthy spirituality and a concern for people and for nature. The songs are not religious, political or sentimental. Instead they have an emotional clarity that harkens back to his farm days and a love of basic, organic living. His first album has been a long time in coming. 'Ma Says' has ten original songs, written from New York to Alaska, from Massachusetts to California and from Mexico to Iowa.
