Formerly a performer at the Harrisburg, PA Doshi Gallery dinner theater scene in the mid-eighties, David M. Lujanac has released an album of eclectic music on the Eidol e-music label. Renowned jazz saxophonist Francisco Benitez, BBC and BBC Wales superstar Sarah Pountney, and explosive rockers Set the Charge out of New York City have embellished Lujanac’s lyrics and his poetry has captured the imagination of musicians around the globe.
As artist-in-residence at the Doshi Gallery, Lujanac performed adventure ballads of his own creation under the stage name Blu Collar. His works have appeared frequently in the Pennsylvania Beacon, a weekly newspaper prominent during that era.
The album, Take Me Home and Love Me, is a tasteful mix of humor, adventure, angst, and poignancy reflecting the cares of everyday American life. From soft, sweet love songs to rowdy revenge-seeking truck drivers to a country boy scoping out the big city, Take Me Home touches all bases with warmth, sensitivity, and the understanding of one who has gone through it all.
The frontispiece, titled Housebroken, is told from the perspective of a lost and homeless puppy by Canadian vocalist Marcien Caron.
The album is available from iTunes, rdio, Spotify, deezer, and Google.
