Her adopted father worked for a chemical corporation and they moved around a lota€¦ New Jersey, then Rhode Islanda€¦ When Diana was 15, she left her foster family. Exhibiting her independence early, she joined a Baptist choir when she was 11 because their songs were more interesting. While she was still playing music during her school years, after graduation, she became a serious painter. After college, still in her early 20's, during a post graduation stay in England, Diana got badly hurt in a car accident. When she was feeling better, she went to the library and got all the American music she could find -- Elvis Presley, the blues, some kind of history of American music and then she taped it.
In 1996 she went to Ireland for a month with a friend who was a great musician and who knew many people there.
She recorded her first album Imagine Me in 1996 and in 1998, her second The One That Got Away. The best chance in the NY area to see Diana in the immediate future is when she opens for Alejandro Escovedo at The Outpost in the Burbs on April 13th.
Diana's mother had moved to New York when she was 17, then went to airline school in Hartford, Conn. At yet another Tuesday night at the Living Room on New York Citya€™s Lower East Side, a performer in John Platta€™s monthly On Your Radar series mesmerized an audience.
The notes rained steady like a metronome, the bass strings rock-solid and the treble, bell-like. He finished his set, and the audience rose to its feet, giving him an ovation that seemed longer and more fervent than the usual appreciative applause regularly awarded by monthly On Your Radar attendees.
Ia€™d made a brief acquaintance with his work back in the mid-a€™90s, when his song a€?Irelanda€? hit the airwaves. A phone conversation a week later would reveal that what Greg called a€?boringa€? turned out to be quite a roller coaster ride as he was pursuing his craft. Although he had a band, he wanted to go to school, so he enrolled at the University of Kansas. In 1980, a a€?benchmarka€? year, Greg moved to New York City, to make or break it as a performing songwriter. Although he played solo, he was a€?looking for a banda€? and sought out guys who were a€?fun to play with.a€? After about two years of different lineups, he certainly found one. Grega€™s solo and co-written work form a treasure-trove of great listening a€” a desert-island collection, which, in my case, according to iTunes, amounts to about five-and-a-half hours. Once people dig into Grega€™s body of recorded work, the reaction usually is, a€?Why isna€™t this guy (take your pick) bigger a€¦ more well-known a€¦ hugea€¦?a€? While we mention a variety of lyrics and instrumental effects, the anchor for everything is Grega€™s voice, a dense baritone that reaches high notes with ease and packs emotion into every line.
The live album Between a House and a Hard Place (2002) will give listeners a sample of Grega€™s sense of humor. On The Williamsburg Affair (2009), Greg covers Neil Younga€™s a€?Wrecking Balla€? that Emmy Lou Harris had success with on her Daniel Lanois-produced album of that name.
In the cornball video in my mind, kids ping-pong off a trampoline and float in slow motion, hanging in mid-air, their hair flying in every direction. This is not just the story of a man with an acoustic guitar who writes songs and sings them. What I didna€™t know until I downloaded Jima€™s entire discography was that his range is off the charts.
He played in an acoustic duo with a friend, singing Simon and Garfunkel and Beatles covers.
Playing music on nights and weekends around Philadelphia, Jim acquired a reputation as a stellar session player and sideman.
Among Boggia cognoscenti, ita€™s well known that Jim has spent a lot of time sharing gigs with Jill Sobule. Aside from the melodic brilliance and command of studio effects, there is no small matter of depth of lyrics. The next album released in 2005, Safe in Sound, kicks off with a€?Shine,a€? co-written with Aimee Mann.
The last track, the strangely thrilling a€?Still to Come,a€? is seven minutes of a thunderstorm. Jim co-wrote a€?Chalk One Up For Alberta€™s Sidea€? with Beach Boys lyricist Tony Asher (Pet Sounds). When he hit his middle teens, friends who drove or friends with parents who drove became Jima€™s ticket to mobility. Jim heard The Fab Faux somewhere around 2000 and, as a self-described a€?Beatles freak,a€? became a huge fan.

Welcome to the video's of Challenge Records, here you can view the latest videos of our artists and great behind the scenes footage. Although she listened to James Taylor and such on the radio and liked it, she felt more drawn to the more rootsy sounds of performers like Cash and Harris. At 16-17 years old, she attended support groups for adopted persons and other people who were searching and met some birth mothers and found it to be an amazing experience.
She came back after four weeks of being steeped in Celtic music She says that over the years, at times she's had to paint a portrait or paint a room in somebody's house, but other than that it's been all music. That tour has ended, but hopefully, they'll reprise this partnership so we can see more of this masterful pairing. Although sheA  listened to James Taylor and such on the radio and liked it, she felt more drawn to the more rootsy sounds of performers like Cash and Harris. His father worked in the design department of WOR Radio, one of the sponsors of the Beatlesa€™ shows at Shea Stadium. Jim and Tom Paschetto, two other extremely talented friends, joined them to form a band, which they called The Ravioli Brothers. His material included songs by Townes Van Zant, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker and Happy and Artie Traum.
The Greg Trooper band that evolved consisted of Greg on lead vocals and guitar, Larry Campbell on guitar, fiddle and mandolin, Greg Shirley on bass harmony vocals and Walter Thompson on drums.
Although he moved back to New York in 2008, most of his recorded output has been from Nashville.
He can shift, mid-note, into a higher range for greater emphasis or break into a yodel if a Hank Williams cover demands it. Its blistering attack of chiming guitar chords and steady tom-tom beat take me back to 1957.


It kicks off with a€?Nothina€™ But You.a€? This one chugs through with the urgency it needs to express a guya€™s return to the woman he regrets leaving behind.
During the intro strumming of a€?Ia€™m So French,a€? we can only wonder whata€™s happening when the audience laughs as he says, a€?Ia€™m recording here! Ita€™s also not possible to convey the warmth and self-effacing humor of his live performances. In Jima€™s world in Michigan, there appeared to be no middle ground between a garage band and people who were world famous.
By his estimation, it was a pure non-income-earning pursuit summed up in the jokey phrase a€¦ a€?I want to go read.a€? He did, however put some part of it to use writing and recording jingles for a local ad agency part time for a couple of years.
The film Roger and Me, by Michael Moore depicting the economic desolation of Flint, pretty much summed up the entire state, as far as Jim was concerned. In 1996, he was still working at his day job as a service rep when a call came in for a multi-show gig with Bernadette Peters.
While there is a great pop feel to much of Jima€™s work, absolutely nothing is a throwaway piece of fluff. The first track, a€?So Full,a€? is one of my favorites and one that Jim is still proud of a€” a great way to start onea€™s recording career. The second track is the aforementioned a€?Live the Proof.a€? Jim has said that Aimee had written a darker verse for a€?Proofa€? that he preferred, but the song had been recorded by then.
Adding an air of poignancy, there are snippets of taped words of long-passed-on grandparents, aunts and uncles. Two very upbeat songs, a€?8-Tracka€? and a€?Listening To NRBQ,a€? use made-up but real-seeming memories.
This sunny, winning song of redemption borrows stylistic touches from the Beach Boys (harmonies) and Beatles (a€?Rocky Raccoona€?-like melody). Your emailaddress will only be used by Challenge Records International and will not be given to 3rd party advertisers.
When she was 6, a nun in her Catholic school came into her class and picked her out to sing in the 12-year-old chorus. She found later, when she discovered her birth family, that her grandfather had been a picker and singer. A place called Cades Cove, a settlement that got bought out by the government in the 30's during the whole WPA thing.
During the festival, they'd drive out after the mainstage acts had played, get there at midnight, play at the campfires until 4am, then drive home.
They recently went in to the studio and will self release that special project later this month both online and at shows. After nearly a year, Greg moved back to New Jersey for a short while and then went to Lawrence, Kan.
Around 1979, Jim Paschetto moved to Lawrence and joined Grega€™s band and the idea of writing original material took serious hold. Campbell, whoa€™s played with Dylan, gets our attention, but anyone in that kind of company would need to be good.
One article states that he was writing for Nashville publishers even while living in New York his first time around.
The first two albums, Everywhere (1992) and Noises In The Hallway (1996), are out of print and can only be bought as used CDs from Amazon at this point. Ia€™m skipping ahead of a few favorites to get to the track that ends the album, a€?Ia€™ll Keep It With Mine,a€? a Dylan cover that makes a wonderful honky-tonk slow dance.
After a couple of listens, I shared it with my wife and she identified it as a perfect Cajun two-step. Critics are saying that this album is yet another wonder in the series of great Trooper releases. It struck at the core of where I live and where I dream (that happens to be rockabilly), and took a left turn to someplace else. From the beginning some 12 years ago, they have always been primarily about one thing: the transmission of joy. He does Beatles covers well enough to be a guest player, from time to time, in the Cadillac of Beatles tribute bands, The Fab Faux. The next five years in Warren were something out of a€?The Wonder Years.a€? There were families with children everywhere, cul-de-sacs and kids on bikes.
Bernadette worked with a 20-piece orchestra, but for two or three songs, during the middle of her set, Jim alone would accompany her, sitting on a stool with just an acoustic guitar. Jim started playing for The Fab Faux when he was asked to sub for Jimmy Vivino when Jimmy went to L.A. International Trailer - Michael Gees - 'Beyond Schumann' - Dobrinka Tabakova - nu al een hoogtepunt op New Series!
After the near death experience, she wanted to do something, that if she died tomorrow, she would've wanted to have accomplished in her lifetime.
The material, with its old-timey feel, was so honest and authentic, it put one in mind of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings or Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer. I was starting to develop a direction and I liked lyric-based folk-rock.a€? Bob Dylana€™s influence crept higher. The track is so amazingly strong that you might cut in on somebody with his girlfriend at the roadhouse, plead temporary insanity and not get your head stove in. Youa€™ll get a taste if you go to YouTube and type in a€?Greg Trooper,a€? but thata€™s only a taste. Texas barbeque, Ia€™m so French!A  We also get to hear him do a€?Ireland,a€? in the only version I have at the moment until I can pick up a copy of Everywhere. This thing took its opening chunky electric guitar riff and underlaid it with a second jangly guitar and a drum attack tailor-made for my own air-drum fantasies. That was the first time he actually played before an audience of a€?paying customers.a€? He was also in a rock band and played high school dances.
Upon first meeting, Jim told her that he played a lot of her songs, so she invited him to play during her set.
There are added ambient sounds that conjure visions of Jim looking around, pulling in elements of the world surrounding him. The track finishes with an old-timey, vaudeville-like song dedicated to Shane the sound engineer. As the words Hea€™s nevera€¦ never comina€™ home emerge from Jim in an angry, sorrow-filled wail, a brass section plays a slow, sad funereal march. She spent weeks alone in a cabin in the woods writing the material, something she had never done before.


His brother, two years older, had been instrumental in turning Greg on to the major rock acts of the day. However, a€?WOR was the first New York album-oriented rock-and-roll FM station,a€? he said. In the early a€?70s, Greg was in his late teens when the work of John Prine and Steve Goodman made an impact.
On their way out west, Greg and Richard stopped in Emporia, Kan., to visit a friend and wound up playing gigs in the area for about a year.
Then, after two years, although he was doing well at school, he felt antsy to move forward in his desire to a€?make records,a€? so he quit. Also during this time, Greg wrote a€?The Hearta€? with Tom Russell, who was living in New York then. If great writing, perfect recording and stellar performances are your thing, this is the guy for you. However, a€?WOR was the first New York album-oriented rock-and-roll FM station,a€? he said.A  a€?We still have some psychedelic posters from WOR that my father did the lettering for,a€? he stated.
The singer strode in on his serrated voice, sharp enough to carve a new pathway through my cardiac apparatus.
On one video, he is shown being interviewed in 2008 on a TV station promoting an anniversary show of the first Beatles concert in Philadelphia.
At a store in Ann Arbor that carried newspapers from around the nation, he got an issue of the Philadelphia Inquirer and saw a listing for a job in Philly as a customer service representative in a high-tech studio equipment company.
This segues into sweetly lilting a€?Listening To NRBQ.a€? We hear a perky strum on an acoustic guitar and tart licks on an electric. In the background, from a recording on a small digital recorder Jim made, real names of area soldiers lost in the war are read by a Quaker organization at the Town Hall in Philadelphia. If anyone who reads this heads over to YouTube to experience the remote version of Jim, Ia€™ve gotten part way there. After Jimmy returned, another opportunity came when he was asked to sub for Jack Petruzzelli. Others who got early exposure that way included Dolly Parton, The Everly Brothers and Jim Nabors (TV's Gomer Pyle). Betty Jean Lifton, a well-known adoption counselor and author, helped lead Diana to her family. He was slated to perform their 26-minute set solo, from that first Philly concert (as a headline act featuring other bands, the Beatles set was relatively short). Leta€™s get him out here!a€? After the audience applauded loudly for Jim, Jill added, with great comic timing, a€?Now, Ia€™ve actually never heard him; he might suck!a€? Theya€™ve done gigs together ever since.
There are more great songs not included and other side project recordings listed on his website. She also met two women there who, as she found out later, were from the same town that her family had settled in. The cumulative effect put a rocket payload under every cell in my body and shot me into a stratosphere somewhere in my brain a€” someplace endorphins form and multiply a€” with cells subdividing and spreading exponentially.
A cartoon version of me would show a hamster pushing a button to get his ecstasy-laden pellets, winding up prostrate and exhausted. On the video, we can still watch as Jim rips through a€?Cana€™t Buy Me Love,a€? using only an acoustic guitar, throwing in lead melody licks amid the strumming, his voice a McCartneyesque doppelganger. And when I met him, he made such sense to me, because he had been the person I had been missing in some way. There are a few similar characteristics to the main figure in Suttree, but otherwise, ita€™s all Greg.
In addition, a€?Ireland,a€? included on his 1992 album Everywhere, according to a quote we saw somewhere, was written as a tribute to his wife. When I describe this video, and numerous others to friends, I find myself using the term a€?jaw-droppinga€? often. In Jima€™s charmed universe, he later got to play live shows with monster NRBQ pianist Terry Adams, Color him ecstatic. Down to her last options, she says that she had a dream on a Monday night that she was in a post office and that a woman in the dream told her that her mother was from Tennessee. His mom didna€™t drive and after school and weekends he had to rely on his guitar, his records (plus later, a tape recorder) and an absorption in music, alone in his room. She followed that up and by the following Thursday, she was talking to her birth mother on the phone. He always said, 'This family has never met a stranger.' People just lit up around him, because he made them feel so good about themselves. I was born in June and my birthstone is pearl, so my grandmother had a pearl necklace for me and a rose.
The song captured the spirit of Ireland so well that Irish folk diva Maura Oa€™Connell covered it, and the song subsequently saw heavy rotation on Fordham Universitya€™s (WFUV) radio playlist a€” back then, this authora€™s only source of preferred music.
This period of isolation and self-taught growth was like putting a nuclear scientist alone in a laboratory with everything he needed to build a reactor.
In an online interview, Greg is quoted: a€?I was desperate back then a€¦ I was living in a trailer park a€¦ We were just desperadoes with shitty jobs.
A friend and I saw Greg play an inspiring set at the Mercury Lounge in the mid a€™90s and stopped to pay our respects afterward.
