2024 news – #1

This spring saw the release of The High Street Project to streaming services. The High Street Project had its origin in a series of four events (“365 Live”) staged by WCUW-FM DJ Larry Haley in 2023. Larry commissioned a selection of cover songs, keyed to the original artists’ birthdays, to be presented at the events. For the songs on this album, I reimagined the music and invited some of my favorite local vocalists to bring their own interpretations to the project. Everything was recorded, mixed and mastered here at the studio.

Here’s a list of the songs, the original artists, and the featured vocalists:

  • Stop (Joe Henry) feat. Natasha Hanna
  • Real People (Chic) feat. John Solaperto
  • Manhattan Island Serenade (Leon Russell) feat. John Solaperto
  • Golden Hours (Brian Eno) feat. Natasha Hanna
  • Wing (Patti Smith) feat. Natasha Hanna
  • Here Comes the Flood (Peter Gabriel) feat. John Solaperto
  • Electric Green (Kim Richey) feat. Deb Barron Northway
  • Darlin’ (The Beach Boys) feat. Roger Lavallee
  • On the Beach (Neil Young) feat. John Solaperto
