Commonplaces is inspired by the centuries-old practise of commonplacing or recording wisdom and ideas for later recollection in notebooks that bear the name "commonplace."

Mary Lee Partington & Ed Sweeney tell stories of immigrants, farmers and factory workers during 19th & 20th century America, where self-educated mill girls earn their own keep, an orphan endures to tell her tale, where old ballads have taken root and where migrants go farther west.

Singer-songwriter Jim Standard will release his sophomore album Color Outside The Lines, on October 16th. Teaming up again with Grammy-nominated hitmaker and producer Kip Winger and Afghn Whigs guitarist Jon Skibic, this effort also features the legendaary Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul & Mary) and his daughter Bethany Yarrow on two songs. 

From social justice to history to humor, the common thread among Standard's songs is their resonance--emotional, musical, and melodic. Throughout the 11-song album, such indelible Standard originals as "Same River", "Witness Protection", "One Time In A Row" and "The Opium Wards" convey wisdom and curiosity, showcasing the artist's uncanny ability to pinpoint fundamental emotional truths.

“Kathleen Healy writes songs that come right from the heart, and when she sings them for you, they'll go right into your heart.”
Bob Weiser, host of the Old Songs' Home Radio Show on WOMR, Provincetown, MA

"The 12-track, 42-minute LP is of a personal nature. Her melodies are often memorable with touches of classic melodies from other sources (“Gift From My Mother”) the most obvious. Nonetheless, the tune is a beauty, with excellent sound. A playful tone to Ms. Healy’s voice — ala Nanci Griffith. (True, as well of “Slip Away”). Most effecting.
Kathleen is a valued folk singer. She steps into big shoes. Has sincerity, poignancy & warmth to her repertoire. She isn’t yet political – yet. She seems to prefer the importance of family, friends, unions & reminding all of us — life is worth living." 
--John Apice - Americana Highways
