Album Notes
Moss Stern is a peculiar one-man band operating in the vicinity of Philadelphia, PA, USA. He writes, sings, plays an odd assortment of instruments, records, and produces his own songs.

"The Importance of Being Stern" is his first album in a decade. By turns melancholy and manic, soulful and sardonic, it exposes the many facets of what it means to be Stern.

All vocal and instrument tracks by Moss except for some wails of eternal torment on "Ghosts in my Cereal," soulfully rendered by Oliver and Zoe. Bug photo courtesy of Gary Wirstad.

Many thanks and much love to Karen, Oliver, and Zoe for their support and feedback.
