Song List for
"These are songs that I have either written recently as of 2020, or that I haven't previously recorded. Other writers have warned that if we only write from a subjective point of view, we soon run out of material. So with the exception of the title song,"Best Foot Forward", and the two shared lyrics, (Robert Priest #3, and Robert Frost #9), these are mostly figments of my imagination.
During the 2020 Pandemic Lockdown, like countless others I found solace in my vocation - at least the part that I could do in isolation. I recorded my vocal and acoustic guitar live in my studio inToronto, and added other vocals and acoustic guitars in subsequent sessions there in May of 2020.
I am most grateful to my musical brothers, Carl Keesee and John Herberman, for lending their vast talents to this project. Carl recorded bass in his studio in Austin, Texas.
John recorded his piano parts on "Best Foot Forward" and
"Half-Hearted Love" in his Toronto studio.
Both gave me hours of advice and expertise. Thank you!
I am very fortunate to have the support and companionship of a strong, intelligent and loving woman. We have been together for many years and have been through countless joys and challenges in those decades. Thank you Brenda for encouraging me to write and record these songs and for allowing me the solitude to put my best foot forward."
