You see colors I don’t, sounds I can’t hear 
You have a third eye and a fourth and fifth ear 
You’re in your own world, but then you appear 
Like you’ve been there all along 
You bounce to the beat that you hear in your head 
You’re wearing the words of old books that you read 
And you’re bearing the scars of the life you fled 
Won’t you sing for me a song 
Whereever you go, you carry a tune  
Weightless and wild, deep as the moon 
And I wonder if I’ll be seeing you soon 
A neighborhood bar, a pen and a pad 
A table for one, they’re keeping your tab 
You keep your hand moving in the back of a cab 
And I wonder if you think of me 
What I wouldn’t give to climb into your head 
To hear what you hear, and to sing what you said 
But I guess it’s enough to watch you instead 
And I’m thankful I can do that 
Whereever you go, you carry a tune 
Weightless and wild, deep as the moon 
And I wonder if I’ll be seeing you soon 
Wherever you go, you carry a tune 
Whereever I go, I want to carry it too 
And I wonder if I’ll be seeing you soon 
A concert for one, I’ll pull up a chair 
I will sit here, and you can sit there 
You open your lips and then you disappear     
Into a song

ABOUT AARON & MICHAEL 

Cello-based songwriters are rare, and the alt-folk duo of Aaron Nathans & Michael G. Ronstadt take advantage of Ronstadt’s adventurous and wildly creative technique to face our shared disaster, head-on. 

Philadelphia based guitarist /songwriter Aaron Nathans and Cincinnati cellist / songwriter Michael G. Ronstadt present their third album, the rich, dark and foreboding Shadow of the Cyclone, releasing October 1. With sobering clarity the duo weave intricate metaphors in the form of fallen saviors (“Strongman”), a Leonard Cohen-esque embrace of the anti-hero (“I Go Low”), and straightforward accounts of our loss of empathy (“Sinner’s Bible”). These songs hint at a sense of just retribution for the troubles we’ve brought upon ourselves, while “Haunted House” and “Come on Sun” coax a sense of levity and hope while accepting our brutal present. 

As an acoustic duo, the two create a compelling musical palate. Ronstadt’s cello lines are reminiscent of the live-layered magic of Zoe Keating, and his songwriting reflects the creative diversity of Paul Simon. He weaves intricate patterns around Nathans’ baritone voice, studied folk meters and dash of irony in the tradition of David Wilcox and Dar Williams. As multi-instrumentalists the two play a total of 33 distinct instruments between them while Serenity Fisher guests on piano and vocals, Stan Ginn on drums, Phil Henry on backing vocals and percussion and Ciara Grace on backing vocals. 

Michael G. Ronstadt, nephew of Queen of Rock Linda Ronstadt and a member of a family with a rich musical heritage, holds a master’s degree in cello performance from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. Aaron Nathans is an award-winning songwriter and a leader in Philadelphia’s community of songwriters.
