The Turtling Dithers: Nothing Is What It Seems

a musical with bibliography by The Turtling Dithers

Lyrics by Jay Hamilton. Music by Maurice Colasurdo (electric and acoustic guitar), Gordon Frazier (mouth-resonated instruments, percussion, effects, cheap theatrics, vocals), and Jay Hamilton (acoustic guitar, acoustic bass guitar, vocals)

Theme? Appearances, books, feelings, philosophy, politics. So nothing serious, obviously.

Each of the songs in the musical have elements that really happened. Or, if they didn’t happen, were inspired by an experience in the library. Or, sometimes the song came first and in looking for a book that might expand the song, a different book would be discovered about something else that would inspire a song. Or, none of this is how these songs came about because “Nothing is what it seems.”
