JIM WHITE "Sounds Of The Americans"

Featuring 16 wildly ecclectic songs from the score Dan Nettles (Kenosha Kid) and Jim wrote for a Julliard Drama School performance based on the works of Sam Shepherd.

In Sounds Of The Americans stories abound, rising and falling behind a roller coaster musical backdrop; a mad preacher speaks of interplanetary mission fields, a lovelorn teen confides her deepest fears to her diary, a proud son relays the tale of how he lovingly refurbished his dad's derelict car, a zombie choir chants a consumerist catechism, a redneck entrepreneur recounts how his "nose got shot off".

"It's sort of a post-modern musical spaghetti western." Jim White
