Anyman—The John Smith E.P. “Unmastered” Digital Edition is a collection of five original songs performed with vocals, acoustic guitar, and the electric bass.
In 2009, author J.C. Hutchins approached me to create five songs for use in promoting the Macmillan release of his novel, 7th Son: Descent. Using song titles and some ideas from Hutchins, my mission was to craft these songs from the point of view of John Smith, a character from the book, and then perform and record those songs in character as Smith.
The result is a set of acoustic and semi-acoustic music with a raw, singer-songwriter flavor… a one-of-a-kind collaboration between creators to bring a fictional character’s art into the real world!
Until now, the only commercially available versions of Anyman suffered from a minor quality deficiency as a result of errors in mastering performed by a third party.
The “Unmastered” digital edition of Anyman—The John Smith E.P. presents all five songs in more purely listenable versions than you’ll find anywhere else!
Includes MP3, OGG, and FLAC audio files plus PDF lyrics sheets for each song.
