PMN Member Notes is where PMN members can post information that they wish to share with other members and the general public. This is a great way to share news about an album project, the release of a new single, or even an upcoming social justice music event.  Posts that are kept to a 470 character and one URL limit will also be re-posted to the PMN Facebook Page if they are relevant to PMN's mission: "sustaining and growing a diverse community of performing artists, activists, and allies who use music, poetry, and other art forms as catalysts for a just and peaceful world."  Posts not adhering to this limit are allowed, but they are not re-posted to Facebook.  Your participation in this collective information sharing effort will help PMN expand our social media reach and draw attention to your individual project.

Keep in mind that in addition to relevance, as we develop PMN Member Notes section, we may have to review the frequency of posts.  We will start by limiting posts to not more than once every two month per member.  This is subject to change.  Meanwhile if you're doing something the Community should know about, post to member notes!

    Greetings, PMN Family! 

    Honestly, I hate writing lyrics!  If you have some lyrics or lyric ideas that you would like to share for a collaboration, then I am interested.

    Send an email to chris@oledude.rocks and put "PMN COLLABORATION" in the subject line. 

    Peace and love always,

    Chris

    Greetings, PMN Family!  This album will be completed next Spring, but I need some investment to cover the costs.  Please visit my website, www.oledude.rocks, and consider becoming a $2 Patron of my work on Patreon!  Your monthly subscription will go a long way towards studio costs, paying musicians, and marketing the album.  And you can help me choose a name!  A PMN member since 1984, I believe in our community.  The art we create is essential.  Thank you!

    "A Kiss For Democracy" was written by Andrea York & PMN member Lindsey Wilson to get folks to vote this November 8, 2022 in the General Elections.  Download the song and post a video of yourself singing, dancing or just screaming "VOTE!!" on your Instagram / TikTok page.  Be sure to add #akissforourdemocracy #anewyorkkiss #challengeaccepted so we can see you! Then challenge three friends to do the same (tag them). Let's hear from everyone!  https://youtu.be/5Ez942ne8aI

    MWALIM DaPhunkee Professor calls us to the dance floor once again for the 'Bronx Boheme' version of his beautiful "It Just Is" (Midnight Groove Recordings/LM3). Going live on all platforms on September 7, 2021 "It Just Is" will quickly become a wedding reception and anniversary party favorite.

    I sing in "A Besere Velt" [A Better World], a 75 voice chorus that sings Yiddish music of social justice.  We have an online concert on Saturday, May 15, 2021.  In addition to our chorus there will be a wonderful slate of guest stars, including Loren Sklamberg from the Klezmatics, Polina Shepard, a Siberian-born singer who leads both a Russian and Yiddish chorus in London, and several other premier contemporary Yiddish singers.  There will also be a narrative based on our concert title, "Singing for a Better World".

    There will be viewers around the world.  I guarantee it will be a moving evening of gorgeous music.  Note that ticket holders can stream at a more convenient time if needed. Buy tickets and learn more here:

    Dear Friends,

    I have recorded an album, to be called "We Shall Stay Here," and have just launched a Kickstarter campaign to pay for the mastering, graphic design and CD manufacturing. I'm hoping some of you can help me reach my goal by February 1.

    You may know me as the one who wrote "I Had an Old Coat," "Henry the Accountant" and "Call Me the Whale." This album consists of 12 songs I have written, and I'm thrilled at the way it came out.

    I was able to get amazing backup from Jay Ungar (composer of "Ashokan Farewell") and Molly Mason on four songs. I also sing a duet with John Roberts, of "Roberts and Barrand" fame. They believe in me enough to be part of this album. I hope you will, too!

    February 1 is fast approaching and Kickstarter is an all or nothing challenge, so I would appreciate any help you can offer in return for your reward. Here is the link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/paulkaplan/we-shall-stay-here-cd

    Pete Seeger said: "I am a big fan of Paul Kaplan. I love his singing; I love his songs." Who wouldn't want to be like Pete?

    I am a founding member of MUSE and am proud that we are still going strong after 36 years.  MUSE: Cincinnati's Women's Choir just recorded a choral version of Nina Simon's Mississippi Goddam and we got more than 23,000 views in the first week.  We are going to record at least one new song a month so I will post others here.    Enjoy the recording and use it any way that furthers the Black Lives Matters movement:    https://www.musechoir.org/mississippigoddam
