#39;s What It Looks Like to Me.Boat, Himmelman says, wouldnt have been made without the urging and input of hislongtime friend and collaborator Sheldon Gomberg. Serving as producer, main engineer, sounding board and mentor, Gomberg helped shape the album, advising Himmelman to not camouflage himself in these songs. As a result, Boat stands as the warmest, and most spare sounding, album in his critically acclaimed catalog.Himmelman first surfaced on the American music scene in the Minneapolis New Wave band Sussman Lawrence before moving on to create a uniquely diverse musical career. Hes best known as the thought-provoking singer/songwriter that the San Francisco Chronicle described as someone who probes the depths of all the passions, from anguish to lust, to depths few rockers can even imagine. Himmelmans restless creativity has led him to record a series of childrens albums (including the Grammy-nominated My Green Kite), compose scores for numerous TV series and films and, for several years, host the live podcast show Furious World. Recently, he founded Big Muse, an innovative new company in which he uses song writing to show companies how to improve, communication, innovative thinking, and leadership skills.To get Boat made, Himmelman turned to Kickstarter and found his inaugural crowdsourcing endeavor to be a truly galvanizing experience. Although claiming that he basically writes songs for an audience of less than ten: (his wife, his mother, his best friend, his kids, and himself) Himmelman was able to see, through the Kickstarter campaign, the many fans out there who care deeply about his music. For the CDs release, he has created an artfully designed lyric book as well as a cookbook, which he admits is really is the work of his wife. Well known for his witty, wry live performances, he will share his excitement about The Boat That Carries Us with some selective touring while also working on the music for the new USA Network show DIG.
