about

I love songs with the word ‘street’ in the title. Off the top of my head there’s Basin Street Blues, Big Man On Mulberry Street, 52nd Street, On the Sunny Side of the Street, On the Street Where You Live, On Green Dolphin Street, Easy Street, Remsen Street, Love Street... and that’s before I get started on all the songs about roads and lanes.

This is my attempt to find a corner in this city of songs where I can tread my own shady path between such grand, well-trod thoroughfares.

This is a song that feels great to play on the piano. Something about the way it falls under the fingers... very satisfying.

lyrics

SOLO STREET
Joe Craig

On Solo Street all the people I meet, they won’t stay. I'm in a one bedroom flat, but I like it like that.
All the neighbours have moved away
An independent man, I’ll get by if I can
On Solo Street.

I'm all alone, going solo
On my own.
How did I sink so low?
Living on Solo Street.

My anonymous face won’t give you a trace of sorrow.
I had my fun looking out for number one
And I’ll make it back tomorrow.
See the look in my eye, I'm not going to cry
On Solo Street.

about

Joe Craig Islington, UK

"The Songman & Me, vol. 1 is a collection of beautifully crafted songs in the classic tradition of Billy Joel, Randy Newman, Jimmy Webb and James Taylor. At the keyboard and with his intimate vocals, Joe Craig performs with a raw emotion that cuts to the heart of the characters and stories in the songs. He may be a virtuoso storyteller, but on this evidence, he's very much a gifted songman too." ... more
