Occasion for Conversation with Jerry DeCicca of The Black Swans

Occasion for Song cover

Jerry DeCicca of The Black Swans

We talk with Jerry DeCicca, songwriter, singer, and acoustic guitarist for The Black Swans, about their forthcoming album Occasion for Song, out on Misra Records. We also touch on their previous albums, like this one, this one, and this one. But, Jerry wears many hats. For one, the top hat he dons as Dr. Silverfoot, his balloon animal making alter-ego. He’s also produced some great albums with such songwriters as Larry John Wilson, Bob Martin, and Ed Askew. This work, in turn, lead to collaborations with Bonnie “Prince” Billy and Ed Askew himself. But that’s not all. Jerry is also at work on a book that compiles narratives from obscure American singer-songwriters, which also reflects on his life as an American singer-songwriter. The episode opens with a cut off the new album and closes with one off their previous album, Don’t Blame the Stars. Settle in and give a listen, both on record and in conversation. He’s a great fella doing a lot of interesting work. Buy an album, see a show, spread the word!

Note: We had intended this episode to go up on July 2, 2012. Unfortunately, a derecho struck our Central Virginia office and took power with it.
