About the Mac St. Michael lp
The Mac St. Michael record is a collection of songs I began writing in fall 2007. After some dark and dissolute years I had come into the light and found a new love. I was living in a small town in mid-coast Maine where I was able to write a lot. I would demo the songs onto cassette and every two weeks I sent a new batch to my friend Walter in Brooklyn, NY. He was always so enthusiastic about the songs and agreed to produce the album.
We enlisted the help of another old friend, Nick Stumpf, who got us into the Saltlands Studio in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn. This was in April 2008. Nick’s musical and technical contributions were invaluable. And because he was so great on that session, I jumped at the chance to work with him again on the forthcoming and second Coke Weed album. I’ve been so lucky to have friends who are such gifted musicians, like Walt and Nick and the members of Coke Weed. Peter Kerlin also deserves a big thanks for his upright bass playing that shows up a few times on the record.
I guess I had high hopes for this record. It was a kind of folk music and that was in vogue for a few weeks back then. I played a handful of shows as Mac St. Michael and then life rolled on. It hasn’t really seen the light of day until now. I still think it’s a special little gem. I am still touched by the gentleness that Walter Martin brought to the production. The songs are by and large a reflection on a New England childhood and a look forward to life with a new partner. Coke Weed still plays a few of these songs, albeit a bit rowdier. I am so grateful to finally have the opportunity to share this chapter with all of our friends and fans. I hope you enjoy.
