Just happened to run across Greg Connor's challenge to write a song around the words "who knew". I knew right off I wanted to include some characteristics of Greg's songs: romance, humor, and Las Cruces leaped to mind. I thought about it for a…read more

This song graced our living room this morning. Your guitar playing on this is amazingly delicate, but it’s the lyrics that got both Rita and I laughing out loud. Now …. that’s poetry.

Just something I've been working on for an audio production course. Very early Stan, and as far as I know the only track to feature a banjo. It's the story of a tragic shipwreck that also says 'tis an ill wind as blow no one any good! Ability…read more

You have always had a clean production style. This is professional. Is that the audio production course, or just natural ability?

While wiring up a new FX processor in my studio I was messing around with this classic traditional sea shanty. Probably because at this time last week I was playing at the Harwich (UK) International Sea Shanty Festival. Anyway, while messing around…read more

Is this all you? In any case impressive vocals!

I had another version of this Stan Rogers tune up here before. But I recently decided to invest in some nice plugins for my recording setup (IZotope). I used this tune as a learning project and it came out so much better than what I had before…read more

Someone needs to take the Dr’s prescription pad from him. I think Gobbels would appreciate this bold rewriting of history. Its sweep is asphyxiating

I love it! Let’s keep them all honest.

We have a few “TALL TALE TELLERS” in our midst right now.

Styled after the classic sea songs of yesteryear, here's a salt-flavored ballad about an old orange-haired pirate who's proud of his big "shillelagh", who abuses women, who wreaks havoc among travelers from many nations, and who sinks perfectly…read more

Where I live, International Women's Day is a big holiday and has been for decades. I write in a genre where the traditional songs are pretty much BY men, FOR men, and ABOUT men. If they're about women, it's a certain sort o' wimmen, if you gets…read more

I set out to make this lyric a sea shanty, but it didn't work. So it became more of a bluesy Negro Spiritual type song (if it's not a social faux pas to name that genre that way these days). This will not be the final cut of the song. I was…read more

My feet are tapping! You got my attention with this one too.

I’m wondering how your folk festival adventure in England went. How about posting a vocal interview here ? Give us the high lights.

This nonsense rhyme by English poet Edward Lear is one of my earliest childhood memories. I've kind of turned it into a slightly piratical sounding sea shanty. I hope Mr. Lear would not take it amiss. ![a photo](http://www.robertpalomo.com…

I’m 100% sure that way more people like (or even love) your music than you will ever know. Most people who listen to it on the Internet simply don’t Feedback, because - who is not always in a hurry these days?

Anyways, I think you are an extremely talented folk musician, and you write and perform very nice, catchy songs.
