Album Notes
This release is comprised of recordings made this Fall at my home in Eastport Maine - an exceptionally vibrant and multifaceted artistic community.

“From Away” expresses the emotions about leaving NJ, feeling the sadness of separation but also hope and acceptance. A lot of the music is inspired by memories, thoughts and feelings of life at the Jersey Shore. The occurence and aftermath of Hurricane Sandy is strongly felt as well.

I decided to name most of the tracks by the simple date rather than song titles in keeping with a chronicle theme. Here are additional track descriptions:

September 30, 2012 - has a shamanic, deep blues vibe with a bit of a Jimi influence I think..

October 2, 2012 - a mellow space rock meander in E.. Nothing special, just kind of getting used to the new recording space..

October 4, 2012 - this was just a punk metal rant directed at Presidential candidate Mitt Romney recorded in response to his obvious deceit during a Presidential debate. I can not fathom how our society tolerates this. Perhaps my political views are not sophisticated or nuanced enough to understand the vast intricacies of the political game, but I maintain the belief that our highest office should be held by the best, most morally decent person for the job - not war criminals, murderers, and thieves..

October 12, 2012 - a sentimental instrumental with a guitar through a leslie. Sounds very old school Jersey Shore ballad style..

October 14, 2012 - a moody, ethereal blues in Dm.. A bit surfy with Peter Green elements..

October 15, 2012 - kind of a Woodstock influenced hippie blues groove..

October 17, 2012 - a silly, sappy pop rock vibe that serves simply “I miss you” letter to my daughter Brianna who is still back in NJ finishing high school, working, preparing for college and a career in the arts, and enjoying the depth and drama of teen age life. She’s an awesome kid in every respect. I struggle with a lot of bitterness about missing so much of her upbringing and never having had custody of her, but slowly I am learning to appreciate what I do have with her, enjoy that, and and appreciate everything overall instead of lamenting over old wounds associated with a divorce. I am an extremely stubborn person so it’s an ongoing process..

October 19, 2012 - a weird diminished march.. Marching on? Moving forward?

November 4, 2012 - a beach jazz surf blues ambient collage?

November 9, 2012 (With Elijah Brice On Trumpet) - a.k.a. “Aftermath” to me this is the best instrumental on this release and the only one I’d throw in my best of or essential collection. It also features the first recording of my son Elijah on trumpet. He played a simple, melodic solo and I created a lush ambient texture out of it that sweeps through the whole track..

November 10, 2012 - a.k.a. “Morro Castle in the Sand/Lamentation in D” this is a stream of thought vocal shout out/homage to Sandy victims. Many of whom I know quite personally. Recorded in the old school Jersey Shore Sound..

--- ------ ----------

Anyway thank you for reading this and I hope you enjoy the music. I feel like I’m still getting my footing here in my new artistic habitat and I look forward to hearing how my new “Eastport Sound” evolves. Every studio have ever had has had an indelible impact on the sound and vibe of the music I create. I’m certain that this will be no different..

Merry Christmas,

Colie Brice
