Album Notes
A full length studio album recorded in the heart of the Midwest, Broken Hearts Shine invites the listener to step into a world of emotions, memories, rambling thoughts, and playful musical moments brought to life by Mark Schirmacher and his music-making partners of over 25 years. The album's ten tracks explore love, loss, family, nature, and the frailty of life. These themes echo through tracks like "Somebody's Night," "Back In My Arms," "Thin Pink Strand," and "Ely." The album features classic singer/songwriter ingredients - insight, simplicity, and harmonic daring - to create a fragile yet enduring world full of dynamic range, emotional poignancy, and organic musical interplay between the musicians and their respective instruments. At its heart, Broken Hearts Shine is an impressionistic work, full of mood, color and texture. These elements conspire to create a lasting body of work that remind us of how human we are, and that letting our 'broken hearts shine' is the best way to open up to the great stores of love sleeping in this gorgeous and complex world.
