Album Notes
East Of Shirley is a 7-piece ensemble from central Massachusetts that plays an eclectic musical mix - from contemporary acoustic and folk selections to blues and country rock.

Recently, the group completed work on their debut album: “A Thousand Sarajevos”. A collection of 11 original compositions, the album’s songs were written by singer/songwriter and EoS frontman Michael Clark. They were recorded by the group at Silvertone Studios in Groton, Massachusetts.

“A Thousand Sarajevos” reflects both a personal journey and an evolving political consciousness. Songs of memory, desire, imagination, longing, and loss are contrasted with expressions of disillusionment, anger, and ultimately, hope. While steeped in the singer-songwriter tradition that has emerged and developed since the ‘60s, the album is contemporary and forward-looking in both its focus and its sound.

A Thousand Sarajevos
I know East of Shirley as a live band and am happy to say they brought their talent and energy to their new, long awaited CD. Michael Clark is a talented song writer whoes words and thoughts deserve our attention. The only problem I had was while intently listening to the words I couldn't help but tap my foot! It was that enjoyable!
I'm happy to have this CD in my music library, and would highly suggest it for anyone who enjoys intelligent thought with a beat.
