Music: Kirsty MacColl

Kirsty MacColl is a British chanteuse whose early demise at 41 in a recent plane crash makes her wit and originality all the more poignant and appreciated. Look for her sambuca-sodden samba lark "In These Shoes"!

Music: Greg Brown

Greg Brown was discovered on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion radio program. His gritty nasal tones and everyman's bluesy take on Midwestern values is as memorable as Bob Dylan. Look for his tune "(I'm A Man Who's Rich in) Daughters."

Music: Jeremy S. Garcia

Jeremy S. Garcia is a Houston local who teaches and plays classical guitar with passion. His music will move you! His website has MP3 samples.

Music: Iris DeMent

Iris DeMent's "Living in the Wasteland of the Free" (playing on KPFT as I write this) is a classic of folk/rock social conscience music. Her duets and original compositions make hers a legacy well worth listening to.

[Ha! Here is the introduction I wrote for a "community page" I created in MSN Groups, where I added four music links and then did nothing for four years. The original Sonicnet links are now maintained by VH1 and, yes, there's a typo in their link for Kirsty MacColl.]

Howdy and welcome all to the Steve Deyo community page. I'll expand it as time allows but for now just be thankful you have yet another way to waste time on the Web! Seriously (ha!) this site will contain musings and discoveries of the day, photos, spherical lyrical heliotropes from the University of Escanaba Michigan etc. Do the world a favor and live a self-examined life, look for and respond to the truth ... and commit a random act of kindness! Remember: Why be normal?
