Sharing the Night With Darkness

Find a quiet corner of your home.
Make a nest.
Listen through this album.
Experience love: anticipated, discovered, aligned, feared, challenged, accepted, denied, renewed, trusted. accepted.
D.C. Anderson’s voice possesses its usual tender exuberance. On this, following a dozen plus albums over a period of thirty years, nature has gifted it a resonant maturity – willing to go wherever the story takes it.
David Robison is at the piano. If you’ve seen him play, he appears to become a piano’s playful and necessary appendage. He is masterful here.
D.C.’s musical collaborator in years past, Lem Jay Ignacio, returns (along with son, Lemy) for Cole Porter’s ‘You Do Something to Me’. In the context of ‘sharing the night with darkness’, it might be considered the musical equivalent of a ‘dream sequence’.
Luke Wygodny (of the tremendous folk group THE HEARTSTRINGS PROJECT) composed two, and adds acoustic guitar to three, tracks. Audrey Q. Snyder adds her delicious cello to a few songs as well.
Songwriters collaborating with or covered by D.C. here are veteran tunesmiths Robert Sprayberry, Michele Brourman, Bryce Kulak, Steven Landau, Harry Chapin, Teresa Tudury, Luke Wygodny, Andrew Ratshin, Dick Gibbons and Bob Dylan.
Spend an afternoon with ‘sharing the night with darkness’ and discover why Stephen Mosher, of Broadway World described D.C.‘s voice (reviewing his 2022 LML MUSIC release HOUSE CONCERT) as ‘lovely, emotionally invested, articulate’ and D.C. in performance as ‘tender, theatrical and visceral’ with a ‘fine focus on the art of storytelling.’!

Amanda McBroom is the singer-songwriter known throughout the world for “The Rose,” a worldwide hit recorded by Bette Midler for the film of the same name. Amanda has been called “an urban poet who writes like an angel and has a voice to match.”

It was Amanda’s own performances of “The Rose” on the Golden Globes (the song won Best Original Song-Motion Picture), the Grammys and The Tonight Show that launched her own international concert career. Amanda’s songs have been recorded by LeAnn Rimes, Barry Manilow, Judy Collins, Barbara Cook, Anne Murray, Betty Buckley, Harry Belafonte, and Baby Dinosaurs in The Land Before Time animated film series. Longtime fans still revere Amanda’s many guest starring roles on television in everything from Star Trek: The Next Generation to her most recent appearance at the Kennedy Center in the NBC special, From The Heart.

The recently released CD, Voices, guided by acclaimed Nashville producer, Fred Mollin (Lyle Lovett, Alison Krause, Jimmy Webb, Vince Gill), is her first re-cutting of “The Rose” since 1980, and features country legend Vince Gill. The CD also includes the Tom Paxton classic, “The Last Thing on my Mind,” one of Johnny Mathis’ biggest hits, “12th of Never,” and ten new songs by Amanda McBroom and her favorite collaborators. Let your listening audience be one of the first to experience the CD, Voices, and “The Rose” with special guest Vince Gill.
