I Wake From Dreams 

Know Your Grower  A song. Jon Remmerde wrote it. Tom Niehus adapted it; Leiza Rea sings it. Tom plays the instruments, records, and sings back up and records everything.

Tom Niehus's version of a song I wrote, and he rewrote, played, sang, and recorded,   "Night Sweepers."

 

Night Sweepers  As written, performed, and recorded by Jon Remmerde.

My brother, Gerrit, worked as a janitor, night shift. Sometimes, he referred to his job as "Night Sweeper." An image formed in my mind, then words and a tune. I developed the image, words, and music, into this song.

I'm really pleased Tom and Leiza perform some of my songs in more standard and very well-done form. Different performances show more possibilities and remind me that if we all live to be 156, we still won't nearly touch all we can do.
