"No matter what you're doing, no matter what your age/Hold on to your innocence; hold on to your dreams." -Littleton Cafe, Randy Gould



How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
This technology has allowed people like me to share ourmusic and our ideas with a much greater audience than before was even imaginable.
Band History:
While singing and playing for fellow students in the echoing stairwell at a University of Maine at Farmington dorm in the mid-seventies, I discovered a great love...playing music. Soon thereafter, I left school and began playing music full-time.

Over the next ten years, I performed solo, played in the folk trio Three's A Crowd, and rocked in the band Alibi. During that time, I wrote many songs and recorded “You Are the Lady” in 1978 on A-frame Records. When my wife and I were expecting our first child in 1985, I left music and went back to complete my teaching degree; I have spent the past 22 years as a teacher and a principal.

In 1995, an old friend visited me, carrying with him a 4-track recorder. This visit hurled me into a long period of writing and recording, rejuvenating a long-hibernating passion that I had always had for music. During the few years that followed, I wrote numerous songs, ranging greatly in content… the reflections of a young girl’s experiences living through the Holocaust, the tale of a comic constable in a small Maine town, and a song dedicated to anyone who longs to go south during winters in the Northeast. Slowly, though, the inspiration faded away as life's commitments prevailed.

Not until December of 2005 did the spark hit once again. Beginning with an attempt to digitalize all of my 1990's songs and to get them onto a CD, I sought to share my songs with others. The result was “A Long Way from Heaven”. In the next year or so, I wrote many more songs, most of which are on the CD, "Hold On To Your Dreams". With great depth and honesty, this material offers my occasionally jaded perspective on society, government, and religion as well as my comment on the realities of relationships and the importance of holding onto our dreams.

Over the last two of years, I have written what is very close to another CD’s worth of songs, my third batch. There is no clear theme in the lot, and the songs’ topics range from unrequited love, to loss, to anti-war. I am partial to this project, probably because these are my newest “babies” but also perhaps because I have become more comfortable with what I want to say. I consider myself very fortunate to be able to write songs to help me deal with the world.

Certainly, I have no aspirations of becoming rich or famous; although, I sometimes wonder what that life would be like. What I want is simply to share my thoughts, my stories, and my views of the world. Maybe something that I have written will touch someone, and, to me, that is the greatest reward in music.

Your influences?
The Eagles, Beatles, Jackson Browne, JT, Jonathan Edwards, and Dan Fogelberg to name just a few...
Equipment used:
Taylor 6 strings, Alvarez 6 and 12 strings, Fender Strat, Ibanez electric, Yamaha keyboard, Korg workstation, Power Tracks, Audacity, Magix Audio Cleaner, SM57 and Shure Beta mics.
Anything else...?
For better or worse, with the exception of the awesome sax solo performed wonderfully by David Turner on "Dark Distant Road", all vocals and instrument tracks on these songs are me.
