Songwriting is more than a melody. It’s more than a few chords and words. Songwriting is more than stories about losing and finding love, and it’s more than whatever gets you through the night.

Mark Cote's 'Fun House of Your Mind'One of the common criticisms of digital music is that it lacks the artwork and, of course, tangibility found on cassettes, vinyl records and CDs, among other forms of music distribution.  It’s a treat, then, when an artist takes the time to craft a visually appealing album.
