Ordinary Life (the Demos)

Album Notes
I moved to Nashville in 2002. It truly is Music City, USA. I like how you’re surrounded by crazy music types wherever you go. Sort of like LA, where I lived for a bit, where everyone had screenplays or headshots in their cars. Here, it’s CDs and myspace pages. And you can forget about your six degrees of separation! Here, it’s more like three degrees. Everybody (and I mean everybody) knows somebody who knows Keith Urban’s drummer. Or Sara Evans’ stylist. Or the guy who wrote No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems.

I wasn’t sure I wanted to move here. I mean, even though I was raised in Indiana, I’d spent almost 20 years in NYC and loved it. And I wasn’t even a country music fan (or at least I didn’t think I was.) But then I started to listen to some of the great songs coming out of here around that time: Bring On the Rain, The Good Stuff, Help Me Understand, Forgive, and probably the
one that lit the biggest under-the-ass fire, I’m Movin’ On. So there I was, and now here I am.

I write a lot about relationships. I'm fascinated by them: good ones, bad ones, make-believe ones. People say my music makes them laugh, cry, and remember. I just want it to make them feel.

So, maybe I’m here to stay. Any town that harbors writers like Darrell Scott, Marcus Hummon and Jeffrey Steele is just fine by me. And welcoming in newcomers like Lori McKenna only makes it that much sweeter. They write songs that move people. That’s all I’m trying to do. Thanks for the time. Enjoy the music.

ordinary life (the demos)
Take the time to stop what you’re doing and listen to this anything-but-ORDINARY disc and you’ll be rewarded with wonderful word-pictures set to acoustic guitar music.

John has captured all of our lives with his lyrics and, along with the sweet voice of Charla, sings “ordinary life (the demos)” from the heart. And, kudos to the chorus in the title tune.

Storytelling in song gets new life here with echoes of Harry Chapin, John Mellencamp, Jackson Browne and James Taylor ringing through these words and music.

Margaret Lee

Ordinary Life
So excited that this CD is out! I can listen to these songs over and over again. My favorites are The Devil & Me and definitely, Same Damn Thing. John's songs tell such great stories. They are all so different - sad, humorous, and sweet. A man with great musical talents. For those who haven't bought this CD yet, what are you waiting for?


I judge a song by the amount of goose bumps I get and the duration that the hair on my arms stand on end. When a song grips me, I can't move, I can hardly breathe and I get chills like a cold front just moved in. I'm happy to say that I got that feeling more than a few times with these relateable and poignant songs. John's a great observer of relationships and conveys emotions so well that it's almost as if I know the characters in his songs personally. Thanks John, mission accomplished. You moved me! Keep up the great music! I'll look for you in NYC!

My favorites are:
Would You Stay
Used to Be
Angel in His Place
Lifelong Friend
By Now

Ordinary Life
Ordinary Life is a collection of songs that is anything but ordinary. From the rockin' The Devil In Me to the stirring Angel In His Place, John Feld exhibits a range that is rarely seen today. Most writers seem to re-write the same song over and over again. You won't find any rehashing on this album. Whether Feld is singing about the lose of a close friend or finding the extraordinary moments in life are actually the ordinary, he does so with with the soul of a poet. If you are tired of the same damn thing (pun intended), this is an album you must have in your cd player.

Ordinary Life
In a word - spectacular. John tackles the emotions that most of us have on a daily basis, and breathes life into them. James Carrington comes to mind here. This is a guy who needs to go on a late night show with a guitar and watch his album sales skyrocket.
