Singer/songwriter/guitarist Lenny Solomon’s style has been compared to early Bob Dylan, Guy Clark, and Jerry Jeff Walker. Solomon began his career in the late 1960s. A fixture at the now defunct Idler Coffeehouse in Harvard Square, Cambridge, he regularly performed there on Friday nights for over eight years. The Idler was a training ground for songwriters such as Geoff Bartley, Paul Rishell, Spider John Koerner, and Ric Ocasek. During these years as a solo performer he shared bills with many touring performers including Chris Smither, Carolyn Hester, Bonnie Raitt, and Spider John.
Maybe Today was released 2/1/07. In a review by Holly Moors (Moors Magazine in The Netherlands), she states, “We have a weak spot for Lenny Solomon. The man writes lovely, touching and beautiful songs that stay with me. When Armando’s Pie came out he told me his next album would be a band-affair once more. That new album (Maybe Today) has become his best so far. His other albums can be considered as a collection of very fine songs, this one has also become a beautifully balanced, complete album.” To date, various cuts from his albums have been aired on over 130 radio stations as far away as Siberia. “
