From Janis: I first met Kevin when I got to play with David Amram, who has great taste in musicians. (A taste borne out by Kevin’s presence there!) So I was really excited when he agreed to join the project. But what to do, since he doesn’t consider himself a singer? “Please do a percussion take on it!” said I, and away he went! Classically trained, you can find him in the greater New York City area playing drums, percussion, producing, arranging, and in general doing everything possible to stay creative.

(Janis Ian)

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come


Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come
