ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Stan is an exciting and naturally gifted Song Writer who is becoming more and more talked about, listened to and having his work recorded by others. With an enviable number of well known songs and two very successful albums already under his belt, he is an artist who you are going to hear a lot about in the future. The subjects he writes about are varied and up to date, many reflect his experiences and observations of life both serious and humorous. He never preaches, is never pretentious but just eases in and out of the subject matter. This quiet and simple style is highly effective and contains a quality and style reminiscent of Tom Paxton, Allan Taylor or Ralf McTell. He always produces; "Songs that matter with words that count".

Whether you’re a listener or performer, I’m sure you’ll enjoy his varied collection of memorable songs and carefully crafted words. He has an easy going relaxed style, combined with a warm strong voice, which always allows the lyrics to be heard and appreciated.

Stan’s current album “More Than Words” recorded in 2005 has been highly acclaimed for its outstanding quality at every level. A well thought out mixture of unique new songs the likes of “Teaching Emily To Count To Ten”, “All Is Quiet On The Water” and the “The Olive And The Vine” along with some of his previously unrecorded classics including “Sarajevo”, recorded by Vin Garbutt, “No Regrets” and “Grace Darling”. This excellent collection of songs, containing many future classics, has been produced with skill and restraint by Kenny Speirs of “Real Time”, recorded by Tommy Roseburgh, with outstanding contributions from some of the countries finest musicians. With simply stunning Cello from Wendy Wetherby, wonderful backing vocals from Judy Dinning and the multi-instrumental talents of Steve Lawrence. Described by Performing Songwriter Magazine as “A triumph of a CD, each track is stunningly good”, it is without doubt an essential purchase, from an artist who is becoming more and more talked about, listened to and having his work recorded by others.

Florida Folk Music Appeciation Group (OCO)

Voted 10/10 at our April meeting
Unanimously voted amongst our top choice of listened to albums this year by everyone in the group. We graded this selection of songs 10/10 for clear lyrics, good variety of subjects, warm vocals, excellent musicianship and play again value. The album was exactly what is described in the write up and lived up to expectations. Some members commented that it was 2/3 tracks to long for one listening and we would tend to agree, however this does not distract from an outstanding album by a very talented songwriter.

Nice album, lots of good songs and they grow on you.
I have both of Stan's albums and I play them all the time. In answer to your question Steve, These Are My Dreams is a really nice collection of songs, very well played and well produced but not quite as strong in depth as More Than Words, which is what you would expect from a first album.
I find the songs really grow on you and there is much more to the lyrics than you first think. Stan's lyrics are well thought out and not overcomplicated but very listenable to.
I would recommend that you give it a try. I've just E mailed Stan via his web site to ask if he has another album planned because I would like to hear more of his songs.

As Good As It Gets
I now have all four of Stan's albums and it's hard to decide which is the best. This album has so many great tracks on it it's close to getting the vote, but they all have such quality about them. I love the production and musicians on this album, it's a joy to listen to. The songs are great as well, so many that I like, Somewhere In America, Sarajevo, Time Like The Tides, The Olive and The Vine, et al. This is a must have collection of songs. the more you listen the more you appreciate the strength of his lyrics and tunes. I love listening to this album in the car, it's relaxing and thoughful, easy to lisen to and yet powerful and clever at the same time. Stan is a real talent, his voice is great and his songs even better.

I really enjoyed this CD, the quality and variety of the songs keeps you interested all the way through. Most CDs only have one or two good tracks on them this one is full of good tracks. I would recommend it if you like interesting lyrics and good song writing. My favoriute tracks are Emily and Time Like The Tides, plus many more.

Magor Award For Stan Graham
Two of Stan's Song's from his recent album "More Than Words" were voted for in our top ten Songs Of 2006. His powerful song about the war in Bosnia "Sarajevo" was placed second and his haunting song about local heroin "Grace Darling" came third. A great result for a songwriter who's reputation grows almost by the day.

Superb
More Than Words is a seriously fantastic album. I'm working my way through the tracks slowly, there's so much to take in. Every song is perfectly crafted, it's a really inspirational collection. The musicians compliment his voice very well, Wendy Wetherby's cello is awesome. Teaching Emily To Count To Ten gets me everytime I hear it, and No Regrets is another favourite. It's one of those rare albums that is so good that I have to go and pick up my guitar (twisted logic I know). I'm sure before long I'll manage to listen to it all.

Top marks, a good listen all the way through
What a suprise, I bought this CD on a whim, I liked the cover and the write up, so I took a chance, not like me. Fist time I've heard this guy, but he didn't let me down. I thought they were good songs, well written but not overstated and what fantastic musicians. I liked Stan's voice, honest and sincere sentiments and some very relevant points made about modern living. It's easy listening and I agree, he's quite like an English version of Tom Paxton, well close anyway. I find myself playing it a lot when I'm driving. I recommend this album if you like a good songs with meaning and a story line. I particularly like Judy Dinnings voice on Grace Darling, what a vocal. Give me more. I'm considering getting his earlier album, can anyone let me know if it's as good as this one.

Thank You For A Wonderful CD
I bought this after reading the reviews on the page and it was worth every dollar. I like music that I can listen to more than once and hear the words. I loved the melodies and musicians on this album, the cello was superb. It's worth listening to in depth as it improves every time I hear it. The words are very moving in a lot of the songs and Stan obviously thinks a lot about his lyrics and meanings. He has a wonderful voice which has real warmth and feeling to it. All of the tracks are good , not one of those one track wonder albums.
