Chad Okrusch, "Wisdom Road:" A Butte Singer and Songwriter's New Album

Some of you already know Chad Okrusch's music from his performances at Butte's Venus Rising Cafe (see http://www.bsbarts.org/bsb_pages/home/venus/venus.html) and at various benefits such as Mariah's Challenge (see http://www.mariahschallenge.com/main.html?src=%2F).

Good news: Chad will soon be debuting an album, "Wisdom Road." Here's a pic of Chad and his daughter Kaitlyn (and dog Dewey) on a backpacking trip a few years ago:

As Chad's friend and colleague, I scored an advance copy. Good stuff. Popular local favorites such as "Opportunity Blues" and "St Patrick's Day at the M & M" will please Chad's traditional fans. EcoRover's personal favorite, "Big Hole River," is the quintessential river song. And new tunes such as "The Angel Mariah" will bring new fans and -- old fans or new -- make them all weep.

Want to know more or listen to a cut from the new album? Check out Chad's music site at http://www.myspace.com/okrusch. [Replaced by http://www.chadokrusch.com . - pm 08.April2008]

Happy listening, and see at you the premiere for "Wisdom Road."
