Tales of the Past

by John Maher

This song has bounced around in my head for about 23 years! It has gone through a lot of incarnations but this is finally it. It is a song of unrequited love and the object of that love coming back. It is a song of uncertainty. One thing about this song that is not uncertain is the influence of some of my favorite musicians. Most notably, the retro-80’s feel, particularly the bass line, is meant to pay tribute to John Taylor and bandmates in Duran Duran. Throw in a little bit of influence from Culture Club and Pet Shop Boys and we are just about there!

Album Notes
John Maher lives in Warren, OH (hometown of Dave Grohl) but is a child of the 90's Manhattan Music Scene. John was inspired to take up the electric bass as a result of the influence of John Taylor and the music of Duran Duran. His music is influenced by the likes of The Cure, Culture Club, Morrissey, and the Pet Shop Boys. He has recently begun to pursue music again at the urging of his wife Rebecca Maher (author and performer of "Pancakes and a Lobster Tank; Living with Autism, Loving Alex). More recent influences include Ben Folds, Matchbox Twenty, and Regina Spektor. During the day, he is an Automotive Quality Manager and the father of two sons.
