NEW RECORDING! Tofu Roadkill is unique in my collection of originals as being the only song -- with music and lyrics -- that I have written. As the title implies, it is intended to be fun and crazed. The song was written in 1999. I could not bring myself to show it to anyone -- especially to my songwriter friends! So, the lead sheet stayed in my music files until Matthew Klein (AKA, Uncle Brother), a musician friend in Berkeley Springs, WV, took it under his wing for this 2020 project which he arranged, performed, and recorded. UB has a wonderful sense of humor, which I greatly enjoy. His style is a perfect match for this song. Please visit my Ethnocloud page and listen to the new track. more
