Minneapolis-based singer/songwriter PAUL SPRING takes a break from his “grown-up” music on HOME OF SONG, his first full-length entry into the family music realm. Produced by the all-over-everything Dean Jones of DOG ON FLEAS and Joe Mailander of recent GRAMMY winners THE OKEE DOKEE BROTHERS, HOME OF SONG hits stores this week, perfectly-timed with the “official” calendar arrival of Spring. I just wish it felt like Spring, as it’s 27 degrees here at Rock Father HQ.

paulspringcoverA laid-back, mellow affair filled with gentle grooves, bluegrass elements and folksy storytelling, HOME OF SONG feels more “Summer” than “Spring,” loaded with songs you could just picture being played on a back porch somewhere in the Midwest.

Spinning tales about “Don Quixote,” a “Mermaid,” “Peter Pan,” and “Sherlock Holmes” (the latter of which I really dig), HOME OF SONG carries a “literary” feel that will resonate better with older listeners.

An album destined to appear on many year-end “best” lists, HOME OF SONG is available now on iTunes or at Paul Spring’s official website.
