Spoken word. It’s what you do onstage when you can’t sing. I’ve written three pieces for “What if Everyone in Rochester Wrote the Same Song?” Thankfully I had Martha O’Connor performing with me, lending a keen sense of character and costume. The words to those three duets are here, as well as a piece I did at Tommy Brunett’s Whiskey Brunch at The Cub Room, “Men Have Failed.”
“Furniture” uses lines from my novel A Bottle of Mezcal. I’ve included a video of Todd Krasz’s excellent version.
