Artist: Tracy S. Feldman
Title: Middle of the Road
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Bromide Hill is located just south of Sulpher OK. It's springs were known to be healing, and spring on Bromide hill was healing to me. I wove the sad history of OK into this song about healing and choices. Three songs form a set (a trilogy) about our interactions/perspectives on the environment--from people in perpetual motion out of the cities, to trash strewn in the back yards of OK, to a memorial for a once wooded plot. Wildfire is from the point of view of a woman pining for the boyfriend who cheated, abused, and insulted her--a love-hate reminiscence in the face of contemplating his potential loss. Hole in the Universe--finding what good we can in the present when the prospects for the future don't look good. Me and Cal--my exploration of why school shootings happen, and what could stop them. Bird--a first experience with teen summer love. Shelter--two true stories woven together about prejudice, illegal actions, and abuse. A Family Affair.... The first part, at least is true--by me and my wife. Navy Blues is a portrait of a friend whose son joined the armed forces just like they did. Whispers--to my love. Envelope--a song with no verbs, about going nowhere. His imaginary friends--the cycle of abuse from the perspective of those abused by the abused. The mountain range blues... hard times, continued. Out of this world--my dedication to my amazing friend Greg Taylor, whose music still shines through all who knew him. When the Smashed Hit Band plays--a typical folk song about homeless people, bad music, and festivals.
