DREAM / Mike DeWall

This new exciting album features 13 original songs that range from pop and folk to jazz and Latin, all delivered in an accessible, contemporary style. On this project, Michael collaborates with veteran producer Pete Elman, creating a collection of engaging melodies and compelling lyrics with a universal appeal.

Dream showcases DeWall's rich, versatile voice, unadorned nylon-string guitar playing and optimistic point of view. Together with Elman, Michael has carefully crafted an engaging album that grabs your ears and won't let go.

On Dream, the confluence of rock instrumentation and Latin rhythms creates a truly unique sound. With help from legendary Latin percussionist John Santos and other notable Bay Area musicians, this is a memorable album marked by exceptional performances.

Hurry My Heart - Lisa Goulder

$15 - Includes Shipping


Tom McCord's story is remarkable. Born and raised in Texas, Tom is a psychotherapist who went back to college at the age of 40 to play quarterback and wrote a book about it. He also sang and picked guitar--by himself--all his life until last year, when he asked Pete to listen to him singing a song. Longtime friends, Pete had no idea that his buddy sounded like a cross between Johnny Cash and Gordon Lightfoot, with soul to match. Now he's got a wonderful album consisting of ten of his favorite folk songs, from the pens of Bob Dylan, Lightfoot, Tim Hardin, Steve Goodman, Ian Tyson and others.

HURRY MY HEART / Lisa Goulder

A singer/songwriter of uncanny depth, Lisa Goulder has assembled an outstanding collection of ten of her uniquely original songs. The result is her first solo album. With the able assistance of veteran producer Pete Elman she has fashioned an album that is at the same time rootsy and modern, a gem whose soulful melodies and poignant words linger with the listener beyond the first impression. Featuring a crackerjack rhythm section fronted by the multi-talented Ms. Goulder on piano, the songs are fresh and spontaneous. With ace guitarist Stef Burns spinning sinewy parts throughout, this is a CD you can put on again and again and always hear something different.

"Lisa Goulder... produces songs with sweep and emotional depth. Possessed of a strong voice supported by a sympathetic mix, the songs are narrative works of clear intent and concise phrasing. To its intended audience, Lisa Goulder offers much to appreciate and enjoy."
- Round Sound

"A lavishly produced gem, filled with sparkling songs of love found and love lost. It hops, skips and plays like a leprechaun in need of attention. Quite lovely."
Independent Songwriter Magazine

"A well-produced album, with a 100% refined sound. Hurry My Heart is a polished and professional production, one that will be the envy of many aspiring musicians."

The Alibis Album

Enter THE ALIBIS, an exciting original band made up of four veterans of the rock wars -- keyboardist /producer Peter Elman, lead vocalist/guitarist Mike Costello, drummer Riley Ethridge and bassist Bob Lindfors -- old friends who have combined their writing, singing and playing talents into an inspired album that echoes the great rock bands of the past with a nod to the present. With elements of Dylan, the Band, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and Little Feat, THE ALIBIS have created an album of original songs, 40 Days And 40 Nights, that will stand the test of time.

"Four guys playing the music they love, singing lyrical stories of the '60's, '70's and beyond, somewhat reminiscent of Bryan Adams. These true believers are admirable for the energy they commit to playing the real thing...basic guitar-driven tunes that tell their tales concisely with a full measure of spirit."

Tony Elman - Winter Creek Album WINTER CREEK / Tony Elman

A classic holiday album. Pete and his brother, acclaimed hammer dulcimer player Tony, mine an international collection of well-known chestnuts and obscure gems, and come up with what the Washington Post described as “the year’s best chamber-folk album (1992)”. Tommy Smothers loves it, too (“where did you come up with that terrific guitar sound?”).
