about

"Songs for Boats" is an album of love songs at the end of the world. It is a new folk music made to resonate now rather than endure for decades. Written while M. Tolan was living/studying in Spain and the world was sliding into recession, these boat songs came into being as he wondered how he would get home once the world fell apart. This album was recorded at home in Akron, Ohio throughout 2010 with the help of friends whose contributions in the form of varied acoustic instruments, woodwinds and lapsteel create a delicate world within which the songs come alive, sway, and pull themselves along towards humble, hopeful ends.

CD from Own Records is Sold Out. LP still available from Positive Beat Recordings.
