PETER VON POEHL- THE STORY OF THE IMPOSSIBLE



lovely song and video by Peter Von Poehl

Whatever happened to the great escape
The finest enemy.
Crafted with pride by monsters on the train.
The world is great to suckers

We have the story of the impossible
A tale passed on so frail
One of make-belief
Maybe impossible to achieve
And really close

Who sew the lion’s hungry in the cage
With the confidance of a clown
The little man who rises on the stage
As he falls without a safety net

We have the story of the impossible
A tale passed on so frail.
One of make-belief
Maybe impossible to achieve
And really close

Whatever happened to the great escape
And all the plans we make
Crafted with pride by Monsters on the train.
The world is great to suckers.

We have the story of the impossible
A tale passed on so frail.
One of make-belief
Maybe impossible to achieve
But oh so close

VALERIE JUNE- SXSW 2011 SHOWCASE





I was out at an art opening with some friends downtown last night and in walked this absolutely stunning woman with long entangled curly locks and red stockings who I later found out to be Valerie June. This was the first wow moment. Play the 2011 SXSW Showcase Artist video and visit her page for the second, third, fourth, fifth! An absolute star…

A ‘self-taught’ guitar player, composer and troubadour of heartbreak ballads, folk songs, spirituals, soul-stirring blues and what she calls “Organic Moonshine Roots Music”. Valerie is poised to reach a wide audience as one of the stars of the ballyhooed new MTV web series “$5 Cover” which is written and directed by Craig Brewer, creator of the Oscar-winning movie: Hustle & Flow.
