Telling Stories - Durand Robinson

by Durand Robinson
(Denver, Colorado)


Cover art for

I go by Durand instead of Noel because of a story. I've moved more than twenty times. There are lots of stories behind that. I've lived around the world (France, Germany, Belgium, Bangladesh, and of course my beloved Ireland).

I'm blessed to have lived a dozen lives in half a century and have only begun to see the treasure that has been. The influence of other people's lives and the stories they are creating seep into the lyrics and melodies of my music.

I started writing and performing since the early 70's, when the songwriter ruled the airwaves. Music started as an escape as someone who was always the new kid, but it became a vehicle for connecting with people in the end. I write to connect with people through shared experiences, aspirations and disappointments. My concerts are less about me and more about the conversation I'd live to have with you, the audience.

I've performed with choirs, big bands, country bands, motown bands and even done a "graceland" tour with an African duo around Europe. But most of the time, it's just me and my guitar.

My wife Ruth and I recently moved back to this foreign land whose name is on my passport after over 25 years in Europe. I feel like a kid again, rediscovering baseball and garage sales and people who, like my grandparents, face an uncertain future one day at a time and it makes me proud to be home. There are new stories to be written and sung that our children's children will be comforted by one day.

It is written adequately with proper meaning and straightforward narrative. Jackets are very usual these days. It would be best if you would put on a designer like leather jacket. Regards Melisa Bush.
