Dream Of An American Family
The newest Milkweed recording now available!! The full length album, Dream Of An American Family, was recorded in June of 2015 in Mixolydian Studios in Delaware Water Gap under the production of Don Sternecker. Don is an amazing engineer who has worked with such greats as Peter Gabriel, Mick Jagger, Cyndi Lauper, and Railroad Earth. We mixed the album at G@J Audio in Union City, NJ through the amazing ears of Gene Paul. Gene is the son of legendary guitarist Les Paul and has engineered and produced music with the likes of Roberta Flack, Aretha Franklin, John Prine, Hall and Oates, Average White Band and a host of other incredible musical icons. It was a dream come true for us to work with both Don and Gene. The cover photo is by the master photographer Edward S. Curtis from the landmark book series The Native American Indians. The collage and cd design was done by Stephen Schweitzer and Thomas Marczewski. We have poured our hearts into this album and couldn't be more excited about it going into the world on its own. We hope you enjoy it and help bring the our music into new ears and places. As always, Milkweed loves you.
