One from the vault

October 4th, 2014

Stumbled upon this almost forgotten little instrumental called Sea. Originally recorded as a kind of afterthought to Above & Below, but it was never included on the album.

How The Story Goes

Moon crying silver, sun crying gold
Moon crying silver, sun crying gold

And I think I know how the story goes
Everybody knows how it goes

Hush little bluebird
You sing like a black crow
Hush little bluebird
You sing like a black crow

And I think I know…

Alone and forsaken by gods and by men
Alone and forsaken by gods and by men

And I think I know…

Demons and Buddhas
Snake eyes and the queen of hearts
Demons and Buddhas
Snake eyes and the queen of hearts

And I think I know…

Fine review by Stefan Woldach in one of my favorite publications:

Huge in Holland…

…relatively speaking. Have had some airplay in The Netherlands in the last couple of weeks, which is nice.
Above & Below has yet to go double-platinum, though…

Playing at Izzy Young’s Folklore Center

Had a good time playing & singing all acoustic and un-amped at Izzy Young’s Folklore Center together with Allen Finney. Nice talking to Izzy, too.
Electricity, who needs it?

Really nice review from AmericanaUK

“Waitsian vocals and melodious guitar

‘Harvester’ opens A. P. Meister’s latest offering, ‘Above and Below’. It is a melodic, guitar picking number with drawling, deep vocals which set up the tone of the whole album. Meister is a singer/songwriter who has previously explored a myriad of musical styles but has settled on this bluesy/folk genre which was a love of his from his early years. Lyrically dark and mysterious, he explores his music through guitar, picking and strumming and creating a gentle, restrained sometimes sombre, atmosphere of the smoky bar room of yesteryear.”
