Moro releases new folk rock single ‘Wanderin’’

The singer-songwriter of folk music known as Moro has released his latest official single, “Wanderin’.” The single has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Budwick Music Co. record label. Warm, adventurous, and bearing classically trilled vocals of the rarest quality, “Wanderin’” proves that Moro still ranks among the world’s most genuine folk musicians.

Asked to cite some main artistic influences, Bodega Bay, Calif.’s Moro blazes his own trail, as usual.

There’s not enough room here for a properly representative list,” he writes. “I’ll just list my guitar, the sound of the ocean surf, gulls, wind, silence, and the letting in of Love.”

Moro’s own sound takes natural elements from each of these on “Wanderin’” and adds his own sonic vision for a result that blends classic ’60s pop and folk with an undeniable lo-fi sound which will appeal to fans of a broad variety of music. As it happens, this vision seems more important to Moro’s creative process than the input of any other person or musician – anyone maybe but his friend, 77-year-old Native American and Carmel resident Red Eagle.

Red Eagle told me when I was seven,” Moro says, “that if I pretend my playing sounds like it does in my heart, where millions of heavenly musicians are playing my tunes, then one day it will.”

In addition to Moro’s own considerable talents, “Wanderin’” also features work by friends, most notably singer, songwriter and pianist Van Dyke Parks, best known for his ’67 LP, “Song Cycle,” and lyrics contributed to the Beach Boys’ “Smile” record.

After singing ‘Wanderin’’ for the group and seeing Van Dyke was groping for what to do, I sat with him and hummed his notes,” says Moro. “As I’d hoped, he liked them, practiced them for a few moments, and we had a run-through during which he really got into the notes, building them to a climax at the end. Inspired, he produced a long felt strip from his pocket and gently tucked it between the strings of the baby grand piano he was working with. We did another run-through, and it was boffo. Van Dyke had scored big time with that simple felt strip and created the perfect sound for my song. We rolled tape, recorded the tune, and all were inspired by the playback.”

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Wanderin’,” Moro writes, “The meanings, themes and inspirations in ‘Wanderin’’ are exactly the same as they are in all my work – particularly in my purely instrumental guitar work – outpourings of joy in gratitude for the hallowed days of freedom I was given during my troubadour years – outpourings that continue to this day. My wealth is all in happy golden memories of all the good times I have had in fifty countries, as the song says.”

Originally billed as Buddy Bohn, Moro has been writing and recording popular music since before the release of his first album, “Buddy Bohn, Folksinger,” in 1962. Since that time he has garnered global fame traveling under the Troubador’s Code: performing in exchange for basic needs like food and housing, which code he took to heart while still a teenager. He has played for kings and queens, actors and artists as well as cooks, smugglers, and American troops stationed in Laos. During his travels he also recorded three albums on three different labels and on three separate continents. His international hit “Vermouth Rondo” helped him build his home and recording studio in Bodega Bay, California, where he continues to record. For 22 consecutive years, the popularity of his music has earned him recognition from the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) for consistent play of his compositions.

“It’s a big help to see how beautiful the world looks and feels when we remember that no matter where we go, Love is there,” writes Moro. “This has been a huge help during my troubadour travels, particularly during my performance tour of Upcountry Thailand in 1962 when there were Viet Cong snipers lurking around the perimeters of my concerts. Hope you enjoy this new video of my new single, ‘Wanderin’.’”

Wanderin’” by Moro on the Budwick Music Co. label is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, folk music fans.

Paula Punch releases new EP album ‘Lost Horizon Sessions’

The songwriter and producer of alternative rock known as Paula Punch has released her latest official EP album, “Lost Horizon Sessions.” The EP contains four original Paula Punch tracks recorded live in the studio for a total listening time of about 15 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release on the Punch Park record label. The latest in her constantly updating repertoire and her official debut live release, “Lost Horizon Sessions” is the public’s first glimpse of Punch + guitar without any additional accompaniment.

Sydney, Australia’s Paula Punch cites as influences Annie Lennox, Joni Mitchell, Chrissy Hind, Francoise Hardy, Bob Dylan, Ed Kuepper and Ron Sexsmith. Her own sound varies from release to release, generally falling within the broad margins of the alt-rock genre, but “Lost Horizon Sessions” finds her at her Annie Lennox-est, with welcome notes of Tori Amos and Jewel thrown in for good measure. Touching, human, and distinctly personal, “Lost Horizon Sessions” is Paula Punch’s most naturally elegant record to date.

This is a live recording session Paula did some years ago,” writes the Punch Park label of their new album, “at Philip Punch’s Electric Avenue Studios in Trafalgar Street Annandale.”

The recordings feature some of the last engineering work of the legendary Wayne “Groove” Myers who passed away in 2016.

“These recordings had been lost for a while as Electric Avenue had since moved its location,” says Punch Park. “They were rediscovered only recently. These tracks included ‘Lost Horizon’ which has appropriately become the EP title.”

Punch Park describes the mix by Groove Myers as “perfectly riding” Paula Punch’s emotional performances. The tracks were recorded after a period of solo gigs around Sydney including supporting spots with Ed Kuepper which Punch has called “intense.” The tracks on “Lost Horizon Sessions” are a window onto the sets Paula Punch played during that time.

Paula Punch has risen to become a staple in the Australian indie music scene. She usually tours and plays with her Sydney band, the Fireflys. Her debut LP album, “Don’t Look Down,” appeared in 2018. Punch has since toured California with Mark Punch and New Zealand-born Nashville artist Jackie Bristow. She won 2nd Place in the Australian Songwriting Awards’ Indie Rock 2018 (she took 5th in 2017). She is the founder and leader of her regular singer-songwriter showcase, “The Punch Sessions,” promoting local artists.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Slow Start,” Tim St. Clair writes, “The title song was one of the last songs written because I thought it was a great title. Also, it described the feelings I had following my passion in being involved in making music and the lack of support I received. There are relationship songs which express the love and care of another. There is a song of deep loss and gratitude. There is a song about taking chances in others.”

Much of the palpable reality of music by Tim St. Clair comes from his steadfast faith in himself as an artist and as a person striving to create songs which speak his heart truthfully and earnestly.

Music has always been a passion since childhood,” St. Clair writes of this. “I devoted myself to learning music believing it’s never too late.”

Tim St. Clair is the son of a Vietnam veteran, farmer and iron worker who, in St. Clair’s words, “inspired me to take chances and risks that some may never take.” St. Clair himself is also a veteran of the US Army, and has worked in construction, firefighting, and as a medic. He enjoys weight training, wrestling, jiu jitsu, mixed martial arts, and spending time with his family.

Speaking of his plan for his music, Tim St. Clair says, “I hope the listeners find the simple messages of love, loss and understandings. These songs are expressions of emotions, feelings and life lessons captured and expressed.”
