The Forgotten Ones is a four song collection of songs that Shoebox Letters started recording in 2016.  As the years rolled by, these songs did not quite fit any Shoebox Letters CDs. Now, Shoebox Letters has released these songs together.

Shoebox Letters' Treasure Map 


Treasure Map is a six song EP we wrote and recorded during the Covid-19 crisis.  It was strange to record these songs one-person-at-a-time in the studio in Portland.  We each wore masks and socially distanced.  Susan Lowery contributed her vocals from the safety of her home.

"The Road Not Taken" is finished 

Our new cd “The Road Not Taken” is finished and out the door to Americana and roots radio stations around the country.  This cd was quick work.   We wrote it and recorded it over the summer of 2015.  I sang lead on 9 of the 10 tracks and my cohort Daria Chick sang lead on the remaining track.  Daria’s vocals throughout the cd, however, prop up mine.  She really gives the songs a sly country flavor.  Kudos to Daria

Many thanks also to her hubby, Ronn Chick.  Ronn produced and recorded these songs and played…
