For its poetical lyrics,and universal empathy,for me it has to be Chimes of Freedom.Every lyric in this song touches some form of the human spirit,and magnifies his brilliance.Streets ahead of Neil…Continue

Bob Dylan has said himself that he cant get anywhere  near the lyrics of songs such as 'Masters of war' and seems to recognize them almost as coming from another person.When I was 16 and heard his…Continue

Hi Rob,

I'm a songwriter from Brooklyn NY. I'll be on tour in Europe in October along with my friend and fellow musician Ian Fisher. I saw that you're a musician, a fan of Dylan, and a fan of L. Cohen, so I thought I'd drop you a line. (i covered Cohen's "Iodine" on my first album: check it out HERE)

So far we've got shows booked in Switzerland, Austria and Germany, but we both love Spain and we're hoping to start our tour in Madrid.  Because neither of us has ever toured Spain before we're looking to find a local musician (or just a music lover) to help us set up a show.  Do you play around Madrid? (Sidenote: I tried to check out your music but the link on your profile doesn't work)

If you're a fan of Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Gram Parsons, Wilco, Ryan Adams, Jeff Buckley, Leonard Cohen, and Gillian Welch then I think you might like our music.  

The date we're looking at getting to Madrid is October 21st, but right now we're very flexible.

Here's a few links to our music.  If you like what you hear and might be able to help us out, drop me a line here or at johndelore@gmail.com

best
