songs from a random house
Formed 1985 by Steven Swartz and Alan Drogin, SONGS FROM A RANDOM HOUSE are a New York based band. As well as performing in venues throughout the USA, they have made many live appearances on radio and TV. Lead singer/songwriter Steven Swartz, whose PhD in music allowed him to study with Morton Feldman, developed a unique blend of psychedelic folk-jazz groove music where the often neglected ukelele (played by Drogin) has the spotlight. Swartz’s intricate lyrics are a bittersweet exploration of the mundane. Often humorous, but always set in a hazy magic-realist universe. Along with
Gregor Kitzis on viola, Jason DiMatteo plaing upright bass and John Bollinger on percussion, Songs From A Random House offer a unique, musical view on song performance.
