Down to Earth on CD

Alien Folklife presents a quirky blend of offbeat humorous pieces and heart-rending story songs. On the funny side, this duo of Joan Kosby and Paul Mercer writes about soap opera plots, history turned upside down, and even termite flatulence. On the flip side, their repertoire includes moving songs of loss, love, hope and healing. The occasional 'normal' song helps keep things in balance. Down to Earth was produced by award-winning Canadian producer Paul Mills, best known for his work with legendary songwriter Stan Rogers. Guest artists include Tracy Grammer (the late Dave Carter's partner), and some of Canada's finest studio musicians. Here's what they're saying so far: 'NICE WORK! What a fine collection of songs, and beautifully produced, too!' Peter Berryman, songwriter (Lou and Peter Berryman) 'What a complete songs set! From gorgeous ballads to the funnies. (I must admit I disgraced myself by laughing out so loud I woke people up!) It's a perfect package. Instantly comfortable and such lovely melodies--plus lyric-writing skills of a rare standard these days. I absolutely love your album!' Eddie O'Strange, DJ, Town and Country Radio, New Zealand 'The fab folk duo of Joan Kosby and Paul Mercer has gathered together a collection of 11 original tunes that run the gamut from the sublime ('Brand New Strings,' a terrific tribute to Lena Spencer and the Caffe that bears her name) to the ridiculous ('Termite Farts,' 'And Now a Word from Our Sponsor').'
