little green blackbird is the music project of Kirsti Gholson.  “The little green blackbird” is a character from a book of poems by Kenneth Patchen titled Because It Is.

A slew of fabulous musicians helped make this album possible: Kyle EspositoManuel QuintanaSera SmolenChris JoynerJerry MarottaErik HammarbergAlison Ruben BitzLou Pappas, Vincent Bruzzese, Jouney Blue HeavenJane ScarpantoniTom Mank and Barrie Maguire as well as the amazing talent of  Julie Last and Barrie Maguire who produced the album with me.

“the summer I stopped whining” was recorded primarily at redstar recording in Los Angeles and Coldbrook Productions in Bearsville, NY.  HUGE thanks to those kick-ass studios along with Squaresville Studio, Jersville Studios, and Lucy Max Productions.

A portion of all cdbaby sales or iTunes sales will be donated to animal protection & human rights causes, starting with Project R&R: Release and Restitution for Chimpanzees in U.S. Laboratories which will receive $1 from each album sale until December 31 2011.
