Producing is a sort of alchemy - helping musicians
transmute the sounds in their heads into recordings. I love working with people
whose music expresses deep connections to the earth, to their communities and
to their own hearts. The results are always
good for the soul.
I've been honored to have produced
recordings with many such artists, some of whom are represented here.
- Swing Me
CD "Swing Me" is a collection of songs that tell stories of love and faithfulness,
the struggles of balancing family and self, learning to value the wisdom of elders,
the energy of youth, and honoring those gone before. The musical styles range
from folk to country to western swing yodels, demonstrating a small fraction
of Bergan's broad musical tastes.
Last Gaspé - Good to the Last Gasp!
The Last Gaspe is a rollicking
contradance band playing traditional dance music with driving energy and
flare for the dramatic. Featuring fiddle, piano, guitar, bass and sometimes
banjo, whistle or even sax, they blend elements of Irish, French Canadian,
and Old-timey tunes with their love of Ragtime, Swing and other styles to
create a unique sound appreciated by dancers and listeners across the country.
Albert - Passing of the Years
Steve Albert's CD "Passing of
the Years" features Steve singing 13 original songs drawn from his experience
raising a family and working a farm in rural Wisconsin. His songs
convey a deeply held passion for preserving the earth and our connections
to family, community and tradition. Steve is donating 10% of all
proceeds from the sale of this album to "Healing the Children" (http://www.htc-wis.org/),
a non-profit organization of volunteer medical professionals and others
"changing the world one child at a time".

Beil - Pizza in Heaven
"Pizza in Heaven", (Lori Beil's
second recording and her first CD), is a collection of 17 original songs

and singing in Sunday School led to Lori's prolific output of songs which
teach and reinforce the lessons of the Bible in the spirit of joyful, lightheartedness
that characterizes everything that she does. Lori's joined on the
CD by her children and their friends, with Tom Blain and Doug Brown providing
the arrangements and instrumental accompaniament.
