Cardo & Friends

Thrilled to get a message from Mark this morning telling me how the launch of Cardo’s new cd had gone off. Sounds as if there was a real big party and everyone has come through feeling very satisfied with the results. I know this has taken a long while to develop and produce, so the team certainly deserves a big pat on the back.

Here is a link to Cardo’s site where for a short while it will be possible to listen to some of the tracks off the cd. Cardo’s style is very reminiscent of artistes such as Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Leonard Cohen and Johnny Cash.

Some of the lyrics are downright tough and in strong contrast with the musical arrangements. Many of them highlight the ongoing crisis in the border towns of Cardo’s hometown, El Paso, Texas.

Good news for me too as Mark is looking into our combined words and pictures project which we are hoping to work on later this year. Check out some of Mark’s amazing photography here …
