Singer/songwriter/guitarist Lenny Solomon, whose style has been compared to that of early Bob Dylan, Guy Clark, and Jerry Jeff Walker, began his career in the late 1960s. A fixture at the long gone old Idler Coffeehouse in Harvard Square, Cambridge, he regularly performed there on Friday nights for over eight years. The Idler was a training ground for such luminaries as Geoff Bartley, Paul Rishell, Spider John Koerner, and Ric Ocasek. At Club Passim he shared the stage with the likes of performers such as Carolyn Hester, national banjo champ Larry McNeely, and Carol Hall (who wrote Free to be You and Me). At other venues he shared bills with name performers such as Chris Smither, Bonnie Raitt, and Spider John. In 1998 Solomon formed a folk/country band called, appropriately enough, Solomon. Performing his original material, the Solomon Band released three CD's, one of which, Not Life Threatening, is still available on cdbaby. Not Life Threatening received very good reviews and won airplay on over 30 public and college radio stations. Solomon's latest CD, Armando's Pie is a fourteen-song album of original tunes written between 2002 and 2004. A review in Rambles.net states, 'The 14 tracks on this CD are all excellent and diverse enough to ensure that any listener will find a few that could become favorites. Solomon has the wisdom of that other person of that name. He gives us songs to make us think but never let's the message get in the way of the fact that to transmit any message, the medium must grab and hold our attention.'
