Mark Winkler

Like Undiscovered pages to the Great American Songbook
Veteran Songwriter records his first CD and it's a winner. If you like Romantic songs that sound like undiscovered pages of the great American Songbook-- you'll love this. Beautifully recorded and sung, the CD is chock full of good songs. One of the highlights for me is "Middle Man" with it's wry lyrics and Dixieland arrangement-- but there are lots of gems here- like "Slow Dance" and "How Do I Go Home Tonight?" Highly recommended

The Man Behind The Songs Steps Out In Fine Form
How refreshing it is to hear an award winning songwriter finally turn the microphone onto himself in a raw and sincere demonstration of talent. Swann's Stale Scotch and Cheap Cigars gives us a rare glimpse at the man behind many hit songs. Recorded live without the over processed sound of today's talents, Swann shows why he is an outstanding songwriter with a gift of delivering the depth of our feelings to us. Bravo Phil Swann for finally reflecting the spotlight on you - and thanks for sharing your soul with us!
