Sleeve Notes and Footnotes
Song lyrics that in a tune dance and shine, can lie stiff and cold upon the page. Steve Bonham has tackled this challenge in a novel and innovative way. Sleeve Notes and Footnotes provides short prose poems or vignettes as a counterpoint to each individual lyrics of his last solo album ‘Songsmith’ as well as shorter ‘footnotes’ for lyrics selected from over 20 years of writing. The result is sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, always compelling.
