This is a compilation of songs from Milwaukee musicians that I have met over the last 5 years. I think the talent on here is pretty amazing and I have listened to these songs over and over so many times. The songwriting displayed here rivals some of my favorite songwriters ever and I’m hoping others will feel the same way. I put this together as a reminder that ordinary people make things happen and the music industry can only do so much and promote so few people that a lot of music gets lost or goes unnoticed and it is up to the public to find it, to search it out and to support it, because there is no one else who will. All of these songs came from people working regular jobs: café baristas, delivery drivers, college students, telephone captionists, carpenters, etc. People who received little reward for what they did and who got very little attention from it. But they did it for the sake of doing it and because it came from their hearts and felt good to do. I am sure there are many other talented musicians in Milwaukee that I’ve missed, I mean no offense to anyone and I hope this compilation sheds a positive light on the entire music scene in Milwaukee.
