about

Glenwood & Gomorrah is a 6 song EP

Over the past ten years I’ve lived in Glenwood and written songs about the people I’ve known. The song-writing process has, at times been a prayer, and other times been little more than a question mark. These songs catalog various relationships as I’ve befriended preachers, dined with drug dealers and hookers, or babysat the children of immigrants. I’ve been a part of potlucks and prayer groups, made new friends and felt a tug as old ones leave and start their new lives elsewhere. These songs are the result of an ongoing catharsis as I’ve tried to come to terms with how people come and go, grow old, grow distant and how life and change shape a community over the years - sudden and slow.

If you left and tend to look back over your shoulder, these songs are for you. If you're stuck on the porch of one of those craftsman houses, watching life pass you by, these songs are yours. If you come and go with the seasons, chasing your next gig or a lawn to mow, you know who you are. Thanks.

Tyler Woods is our graphic artist; and Joylyn Troyer is kind enough to help with graphics and fonts.
