If you have ever had a dog you will definitely relate to Kirk Olsen's collection of Dog Songs. It is hard to imagine someone could find so much to write about on one single subject but he has managed to create a dozen diverse and unique stories that seem to cover all of man's best friend's most interesting traits. He starts us off with a story of how he met a fishing dog in Tahiti that actually fishes in the tidepools "by moving rocks with his nose / just hoping he will expose / a little bait, that will draw in the fish".
Next we are off to Mexico where we meet Jose, a Mexican stray, that hangs out by the Taco stand waiting patiently for someone to drop a taco on the ground. In all his songs the dogs; their lives and surroundings, are captured vividly. You can almost feel the heat and imagine the breeze that Jose is praying for.
As with most human music, there are plenty of love stories in this collection. Yes dogs do fall in love - and they fall in love hard. Just give a listen to "I'm in love with The Dog Across the Street / I'm just afraid that we're never going to meet / She gets her walk in the morning time / I have to wait all day before I get mine..." Eventually his owner loses job and takes him on a morning walk. The rest is history. Our Tahitian fishing dog has a girlfriend named Wahini. And Jose may or may not have a girlfriend named Roseta. The dog from "If My Dog Could Talk" is in love with a dog named Cozette (she's the prettiest dog he's ever met). Yes there are plenty of love stories on this CD but none as enchanting as the autobiographical "Too Much Love for One Bed" . Here Kirk has captured what it's like to live with a wife, two dogs, and a cat, all struggling to fit together in life and at night on their too small bed.
While never pursuing, or desiring, a career in music, Kirk has been writing songs for over thirty years. After exhausting the subject of relationships between humans, he turned to his dogs for inspiration. The result was too joyful and fun not to share with the world so he took some time away from a job he loves to record this CD. During the day you will still find him doing that job, driving and delivering packages for Fedex on the Big Island of Hawaii. "No way am I leaving a job like this. It's like being Santa Claus" he says. "I'm not looking for fame. I'm old enough to know better than that. I just hope to put a smile on someone's face now and again, and to pet every dog I meet."
The album was recorded in Austin, Texas with the help of some of the finest musicians working in that great music city. The project was expertly helmed by Stephen Doster and recorded the old fashioned way, to analog tape, for that fat and warm sound.
P.S. Kirk has made an entertaining video for The Dog Beach Boogie which you can see if you go to his web site https://www.tradebit.com
