Introducing a story in verse about a musical artist in search of himself. Alone in his inner feelings for years on end, the artist seeks the companionship of those most like him and yearns to be accepted and loved just for who he is. He also strives to share his long-hidden creative talents with a receptive audience of those who will understand his music most. Orange and Black: The Furst Album is the story of how a young man finds all these things--and so much more.
Bucktown Tiger was a fledgling, newly-minted college graduate when he first found his musical self. He had written a couple of fun songs--more like personal anthems--and had long had dreams of making his own CD, but it was at a concert in Memphis in 2005 where Bucktown got the inspiration to set off to create something that he would always cherish as his own--a musical mirror image of himself. Over the next two years, he would overcome steep production hurdles and limited resources, scrimping and saving and rolling up coins to acquire new equipment with which to record. Orange and Black: The Furst Album is the culmination of these efforts, combining soulful piano tunes with powerful lyrics from the heart, into twelve riveting tracks.
