Fast Folk Musical Magazine (Vol. 8, No. 4) New Voices NYC

Recorded live at the Fast Folk Café on July 6th 1995, this album features "18 of New York City’s most promising songwriters" of that time. Fast Folk founder Jack Hardy introduces the album with an article in the liner notes on the process of songwriting. "Why do we do this?" Hardy asks; and answers: "If we slow down the world by stopping the chatter of the mundane we can begin to marvel at the simplest of ordinary objects and events. We begin to see the terrible beauty in everything."
