Thread Name: Jed Marum - a New CD!
Subject: RE: Jed Marum - a New CD!
Thoughts after spending 3 days with Paul and Jed.

Being a folksinger means that you must open yourself up and expose very deep and personal feelings to others and hope that they respond in a positive way. Every so often someone comes along in this process that shares feelings with you that are so profound, yet so simple. These very special folks show you there soul, and when you see it, it almost blinds with its goodness. Such is Jed Marum, singer, songwriter and musician. Aside from being my very close friend, he is an extraordinary talent. This new CD allows you to glimpse into the heart and soul of a very special soul. And, Saints preserved, you will like what you see.

Under the guidance of Paul Mills, a true master of his craft and a great performer, this project took shape. I must tell you that Jed fearlessly lets you into secret spaces, and does so assured that you will relate. His love letter to his Mom, whom is stricken with Alzheimers, is a primer on the way one looks at these things. It is no secret that Jed and I are friends. But I must add that is also one that I genuinely admire. I believe that one day all of us that know him will be very proud of that fact.

While I am on the subject, let me just tell you that if you are a performing artist who is considering recording, you should consider Paul. He is more that just attentive, he is involved. He and Bev love the music, and it comes out in the quality of the tracks. You will be very glad you ordared it.

Little Brother Jed, this work is an amazing and successful effort to share who you are with the world. I beleve you will pass with flying colors

Folks, when this CD finally comes out, give it a listen. I believe that it will get much attention.

All the best,
Mick
