No subject, however strange or mundane, escapes his consideration. A thinking person's songwriter, Gladstone surprises his listeners with unexpected rhymes and melodies, and can turn the most ordinary subject into hilarious satire. Gladstone is also known for his weekly radio show, featuring his original music and comedy, that ran on Oregon Public Broadcasting radio, KLCC, and KUOW in Seattle. His music has been featured on NPR's 'All Things Considered' and 'Car Talk.'
Haunting account of the experience of falling asleep. Walks the edge between beautiful and creepy. Rich and compelling melody. Male vocal, piano and rich orchestral strings. “I close my eyes and make my reservation / For passage to and unknown destination.”, Male Vocals, Dangerous, Mysterious Music
