    Singer-Songwriter Chuck Brunicardi ignites a new sound.
    Produced by Mario Caldato, Jr at MCJ Sound LA in 2015.
    "Devil An Angel" is a new track inspired by a trip to Stonehenge Chuck took while on med school break in 1977.
    Perhaps it is no coincidence the record hole on the Stonehenge label art eclipses the moon from famed surgeon Dr. James Macho's photo "Moon Over Stonehenge" taken the very day this EP went to press. And so, another "Stonehenge Phenom" was born.
    This soulful production reinvents 3 songs featured on Chuck's Pulitzer Prize in Music nominated debut CD, "Where Sunset Meets The Beach". There is magic in the air!
    Bonus items: Photos: Stonehenge Phenom Story, "Moon Over Stonehenge" cover and label art, Lyrics.

Track Name: Devil an Angel

The gift of charm came my way with the wind
A sudden chill as some pool I'd fallen in
Blue bolts of fire stirred my desires
The moment your eyes met mine

The angel of night sat perched on the throne
Captured my soul with cold lapis stone
For blessing I yearn but soon I would learn
The angel a devil would be

To have those wings fly within my home
I'd give anything woo I sold my soul
Pearls dropped in a pool, I gave like a fool
To be left all alone to burn

The dark of night I lay an empty shell
The price I paid for the angel was hell
Oh to have one more chance
I'd run to dance the dance
The angel a devil would be
The angel a devil would be
Track Name: Do Not Stand
Do Not Stand

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond’s glint on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circle flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die
Track Name: Roland

Down in Georgia’s
A railroad track
Where they caught him
And they brought him back
Roland ran away

From the boxcar
With his hands in chains
Forlorn with a look of shame
Roland ran away

Why he’d leave
Will always be
In my mind
A mystery

Why he’d leave
His world behind
Children, home
And lovin’ wife
Children, home
And lovin’ wife
Roland ran away

Roland worked at the hardware store
Mixin’ thinners for the paints he’d pour
Drop by drop he’d watch the colors change
Velvet hues round in circles spun
Spin, spinnin’ til the work day done
Purple trails be swirlin’ through his brain

No one there knew Roland’s mind
A genius of the savant kind
Pretty Jenny’s in the back
Teased him there behind the stacks
Teased him there behind the stacks
Roland ran away

Roland hopped aboard
A southbound train
Southbound in the pourin’ rain
Lightnin’ lightin’ up the fields around

Some ole timer was in the back
Pulled a harp from a red plaid sack
Started singin’ “boy your’re freedom bound”

But back home the worries start
Where was Roland after dark
Police saw him board that train
This confused poor sweet Lorraine
This confused poor sweet Lorraine
Roland ran away
Track Name: Never a Father
Never a Father

I was never a father
There were times
I wished I’s one
From the unknown
He was sired
I would raise him
As my son

I would throw
Him on my shoulder
We would walk down to the sea
Felt his weight
As he grew older
A million questions for me

There was something
In this young man
I had never seen before
He was being driven
By some haunting, silent source

If I asked him
Of his visions
He would turn
And shake his head
As if he didn’t know the answer
Or that it was better left unsaid

I was never a father
But I’m glad I wasn’t one
The crushing pains
And the sorrows
When you lose
Your only son

He hugged me
And I said, goodbye, son
He turned so I wouldn’t see the tears
I watched him fade
On the horizon
His arm a’wavin
Out to me
