Album Notes
Jonathon Ferris's first full length album features 10 original songs. The way the songs have been arranged may make you feel like you’ve been sat up, knocked down, dusted off, and picked back up again. The set up kicks off with the toe tapping yet darker sounds of "Crows". The second track takes you through the convoluted logic of "Midnight Flight". "What a Year" is next, with a rundown of all that can happen in a year (and did), and looking forward to what is ahead. The fourth track is the Flannery O'Conner inspired "Georgia Wrongs Turns". Then the knock down starts with the moody “(myself) Face to Face”. “Repeat Cameo” then makes it appearance hoping that old friends will someday return. Dusting you off comes in the self effacing, tongue-in-cheek, “Tortured Poet”. Then the pick up: “Don’t Let the Devil Get You Down” come in as a kick in pants pep talk. This is followed by the learning to trust again song “Leaning Back.” The closer, “You and Me”, is a song of love in the midst of hard times.

Jonathon performs most of what is heard here. Everyone who has seen or heard him play so far knows he plays acoustic guitar and sings. On this CD we also hear him, adding harmonies to the mix as well as playing electric guitar, mandolin and bass. On three tracks Sugarspell, an accomplished singer-songwriter in his own right, makes an appearance adding drums to the mix on three tracks.
