The theme of this new cd evolves around the subject of homelessness , the wailing saxaphone of Vince Lenzi underlines the mournfulness of the poor on the song "vote for me" , the direction of searing guitar work by Tony Martino on the song "far away" makes one feel that being homeless is never that far away from any of us. The anguished voice of singer Don Lichter , on "mourn for the city" expresses the pain and saddness which society puts in a box so it dosen''t have to deal with it.
the song "Elohim" which is a hymn of entreaty was inspired by the book "the Bible"/psalms and was written for the NATIONAL PRAYER DAY
For the last twenty years, having made their debut performance in rochester at the highly acclaimed Park Avenue Festival Mr. E. has performed original songs for audiences all over the Finger Lakes and Greater Rochester. With over a 300 songs to his credit, Mr. E.''s music has been described as an eclectic blend of styles diverse as Rock, Country, Folk, Blues , Gregorian Chant, and even entering the world of Rap/Hip Hop on this cd with the seemingly strange theme of the song "rap city and blue" which was co written by Gregg Christiansen about the plight of the homeless, and works off of the novel Massacre at Wounded Knee "the trail of tears" which is about the american indians of the late 1800''s , proving that the homeless are with us always , but however one labels his style, all agree that this is honest music.
When Mr. E. sings about the plight of the homeless in "Mourn For the City", we are convinced that this is personal...that he himself has lived the life of the homeless person. The song "mourn for the city" is inspired from the book "the Bible"/rev.18.
When he satorizes political speech in "Vote for Me," we smile because he gives voice to our own thoughts about the duplicitous speech of some politicians.
But social commentary is not all Mr. E. writes about. His lyrical subjects are as varied as the music. Therefore the listener is pleasantly surprised to hear heartfelt but intelligent love songs as well as songs about the ups and downs hauling an eighteen-wheeler across country, as in Mr. E.''s "Truck Driver''s Song."
"Mr.E(songwriter)& he totally obscure band will make their debut performance on saturday june 22 at the ontario county arts council in canandaigua in a benefit concert for the open door mission of rochester ny. This is big news as this talented songwriter ,Mr.E has always kept a pretty low profile, making this show extra special as he also celebrates the release of his new self titled record. the
album is an inspired blend of country, rock and acoustic sounds that meld into some catchy tunes"...Michelle Picardo/freetime magazine/words and music
