“I try to make each recording a bit different from the others but still maintain the identifying sound of DL&Q,” Lawson tells P&P. “While I was making the selection of 12 songs that really reached out to me the thought occurred to me that life is a continuous story and so the title of the CD became ‘Life Is a Story.’

“While there are songs here that some may call more middle of the road bluegrass, by intent there are some very traditional sounding bluegrass songs as well. All in all, I am very pleased with the end results and I believe it is one of my best efforts.”

“My first time in Seville was when I was 14,” Solare tells P&P. “My father took me to a long trip through Europe and one of the stops was Seville. For years, only one thing I remembered from that journey: the smell of the orange blossoms. Much later, when I was 37, I visited Seville again (twice within a few months and for completely different reasons). Although there is much more in Seville than orange trees, I prefer to keep the scent.

“For the recording of this piece as single on Spotify & Co. I made two versions (2 tracks): piano solo and piano with ambient electronic pads.”
