  • The album cover for “I Shouldn’t Be Singing This Song”



— The chance meeting of a local artist and local record producer led to a collaboration that has brought a new CD to life.

The result is "I Shouldn't Be Singing This Song," a 10-track recording by singer/songwriter Nick Roes of Shohola now available worldwide.

“I met Nick through an art class,” says producer Paul E. Mitchell of Trick Dog Recording in Glen Spey, N.Y. "He had a bunch of songs and booked some time in my studio. Nick sang his original songs for two hours without a break! I feel I got to know a little bit about him that afternoon."

Singer/songwriter Nick Roes said Mitchell is a great producer.

“His gentle guidance coaxed my best self out into the studio," he said.

Roes is a visual artist and director of the Artists’ Market Community Center in Shohola. He designed the cover art for the CD as well. The title track is about the stray thoughts that sometimes sneak into the mind of a happily married man.

Other tracks include “Love Costs,” about emotional costs rather than finances. “Not Appropriate” might not be appropriate, but it’s offered without any apologies. And “A Man Who Isn’t Me” helps us understand why others will probably never know us as we really are.

Also included on the disc or download are “Phony Love,” “Becca,” “Not Drunk Enough,” “Drummer Boy,” “Special Kind of Love,” and “Bite Your Nose.” It’s a mix of styles and emotions, some sad and some silly.

The music is available at the Artists’ Market, 114 Richardson Ave., Shohola; andcdbaby.com/cd/nickroes, where you can also hear free samples of each tune.
