About

Dave Henderson and Marc ‘Sparky’ Elbaum are as yin and yang as they come. Dave’s a true Live Free Or Dier, born and raised; Sparky’s a refugee from Brooklyn. They asked me, I don’t know why, to write liner notes for an excellent album they’d done, NEW EDGE, OLD SOULS, and I was hooked. I got Sparky and Dave to do the music for my Off-Off-Broadway production of THE PENIS RESPONDS, 12 plays, 12 themes. I needed an instrumental for Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer to dance to in my live broadcast production of ON GOLDEN POND and, again, Dave and Sparky came through. We wrote two songs for WHITE PEOPLE CHRISTMAS when I directed it in LA. And for AX OF LOVE, I threw them the small challenge of taking the same lyric, MAKE ME CRAZY, and doing it six different ways to underscore the 30 years that pass in the play, 60s pop, Psychedelic, Reggae, Heavy Metal, Grunge, New Age. We’ve written a dozen or so songs together, some of which you can hear here. Old Souls indeed and good ones.
