Gary Rasberry’s 4th solo recording, Polishing Stone, offers a path to travel for those who love to live in the place where words become music. It’s an acoustic-driven collection of songs fueled by love. Love for children. Love for family. Love for friends. Love for this one beautiful life we’ve been gifted.
Recorded and engineered at Neptune’s Machine, Wolfe Island by Jason Mercer, Polishing Stone features a cast of stellar musicians that includes Wolfe Islanders, Jason Mercer, Chris Brown, Teilhard Frost, Rocky Roberts and Pete Bowers, as well as mainlanders Jenny Whitely & Joey Wright, Tannis Slimmon, Rebecca Campbell, Steve Mayone, Jan LeClair, Kevin Bowers, Jamie Campbell, Rob Unger, Andy Schick, and Michael Occhipinti.
"Great to hear Gary spreading his wings with a new batch of solid songs. Engaging arrangements and fine players … check it out."
"Here you'll find the heart of love in the art of song."
"Humble. Tender. Unpretentious. An album of wisdom, gentleness and love. Polishing Stone is a rare gift."
—Kevin Weymouth, musician and author of Mean, Meaty and Modal: Music by Numbers
"Songs of gratitude and tenderness. Songs of innocence and insight. Spun through with both sun and moon. Let yourself be swept away by its joy and grace."
