NewSong Music is excited to offer you an exclusive, free download of the title track from the latest release from 2011 Mountain Stage NewSong Contest finalist Clarence Bucaro. Enjoy.

Over six albums the prolific, honey-voiced Brooklyn, NY singer-songwriter Clarence Bucaro has crafted an impressive canon of uplifting Americana, garnering comparisons to Jackson Browne and Van Morrison. With his new album “Dreaming From the Heart of New York” he returns to the musical grounds he began on. Once again teaming with Grammy winning New Orleans virtuoso Anders Osborne on the production reigns, Bucaro’s new album is a stripped down, back to the basics collection of songs about life, love, family and relationships. Featuring intimate lyrics and bare acoustic guitar picking Bucaro reflects on his arrival to New York City and raising children there on the standout title track as well as pondering the nature and meaning of love in the raw “Don’t Know Much About Love.” Other high points include the heartbroken homesick “Curtis Mayfield” and the beautiful “Summer Rain.”

The songwriter built his career on a robust 300-shows-per-year schedule sharing stages with such diverse and established artists as Aaron Neville, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders, North Mississippi Allstars, and Fountains of Wayne. Born in Cleveland, Ohio Clarence left his hometown for New Orleans to follow his mentor, the Crescent City music icon Anders Osborne. From New Orleans he moved to LA before settling in Brooklyn. The stories in these journeys are documented from early critically acclaimed albums like his Anders Osborne-produced debut Sweet Corn and his Rounder Records sophomore album Sense Of Light to the National Geographic featured Walls Of The World. His musical journey has sought to capture the human condition in the folk-storytelling heritage with a panoramic view of humanity and love as captured on “Dreaming From the Heart of New York.”



Every night, around midnight
the lights go off on the Manhattan Bridge
I see it from my window
For a second then I go to bed

I like to fall asleep
to the sounds of the freeway
hear it hummin'
like a distant train

as I go dreaming from the heart
dreaming from the heart of New York

I remember when I came here
it was cold, I barely knew a soul
8th Avenue in Harlem
the bitter wind chilled my bones

Some nights felt so lonely
so sad I couldn't cry
but lookin' back
it felt so great to be alive

and dreaming from the heart
dreaming from the heart of New York

My sons were born here
and it's here they'll learn to use their feet
to stumble through the channels
of their souls on these streets

When I think back
I still get tears in my eyes
when i drove cross that bridge
for the first time
