New Music: Michael Soward

This is another of the songs that was sent to me via a posting at a website that matches journalists and various sources.

This is from the bio at Soward’s site:

Michael Soward, music producer of cutting edge music for almost 30 years, has released his first novel, “Life-ology 101”. The book is receiving acclaim nation-wide for being an inspirational story of transformation and the power of the smile.

His mother died in a hospital when he was two months of becoming two years old. His grandmother then takes him along with his younger brother to her hometown of Blytheville, Arkansas where she would raise them. (Continue Reading…)

The song is “What Are You Gonna Do?” I think,you will agree that it is smooth. Though the category is “new music,” Michael has been around for a while. That’s no reason not to listen, however.

Reading Music

The stories of the great bands and musicians are fascinating. Musicians as a group are brilliant, but often troubled. The combination of creativity and drama makes for great reading.

Here are some books to check out.

Duke Ellington brought class, sophistication and style to jazz which, until that point, was proudly unpolished and raucous. His story is profound. The author, Terry Teachout, also wrote "Pops," the acclaimed bio of Louis Armstrong. Click here or on the image.

The Grateful Dead don't get enough credit for the profound nature of its lyrics. Many of the band's songs are driven by a deep and literate Americana ("I'm Uncle Sam/That's who I am/Been hidin' out/In a rock and roll band" and "Majordomo Billy Bojangles/Sit down and have a drink with me/What's this about Alabama/Keeps comin' back to me?").

David Dodd's exhaustive study tells the story, song by song. Click here or on the image.
