Any Doorway Will Do

Folk - Contemporary

Any Doorway Will Do is a collection of songs about life, love, and the pursuit of something real. The listener joins these two songwriters on a journey through doorways of words and music as they chronicle lives filled with joy, marked with sorrow and illuminated by hope. Clearly, there is a wealth of life experience in their words and melodies that can be felt as much as heard. The album title comes from Roll with the Punches, the couple's anthem for living life one day at a time: "... and if it's raining, any doorway will do... You've got to roll with the punches You've got to keep your eye on a star You've got to dream like there's no tomorrow You've got to be just who you are ..." Eight of the 12 tracks on Any Doorway Will Do were co-written by the couple with the remaining four penned individually, providing further insights into each writer. Their individual styles are a unique complement to each other both vocally and from a songwriting perspective. Greg maps a quest for knowledge and humility on "Revelation Isle," with the lines, "I know I am unworthy / a pauper at your door." In "Now is What We are," Bev presents a case for staying present, with the sage advice "just take the gifts that have been left here at your feet / and look with love on every stranger that you meet / 'cause now is what we are." Bev Barnett & Greg Newlon are troubadours on a new frontier, baby boomers who grew up on great music and now create it to share with a growing audience of similar souls; the generation with a wealth of life experience whose search continues. Acoustic, contemporary, meaningful and uplifting - and with as many questions as answers - Any Doorway Will Do offers shelter and solace to seekers and skeptics alike.
