The "PROMISE" story
One winter Monday in 2010, I was hosting Open Mic as usual ("and the usual crowd was there"). Mary Bradley, a local poet, had just finished a reading and we started talking. Turns out Mary was a lyricist also and wanted to know if I'd set some of her songs to music. She gave me a sheet for Dreams of East Montana (track 10 on the Promise CD). It was a story song and I loved it. Mary liked what I did with the music and we did a couple more. We ended up with 4 of Mary's lyrics on the CD, including the title tune "PROMISE", which was completed in April of 2011. We liked what we did so much that we're now talking about doing another project. We'll keep you posted as that progresses.
