Lewis     Dyson    Avinger

"Stray Dogs by the Highway" is the first edition of rich collaborations between poet David Love Lewis, composer/songwriter Alan Dyson, and jazz guitarist/ producer Erich Avinger.


Leaning into the canon of American poetry and music, this work is a well-simmered kinesis of William Faulkner, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Dylan, Randy Newman and Leonard Cohen.


Lewis, Dyson and Avinger are Southern artists motivated by the hypnotic Om of the cicada, the hum of road, and the mantra of familiar hymns permeating the piney woods of East Texas and Northwest Louisiana.
