This project is a lot of things, but for me it’ll go down in the books as a celebration of friendship and collaboration. I love this team of people and the care they gave these songs. I checked, and a pandemic isn’t great timing for a record release. But, oh well – maybe the music will be a nice distraction for a bit.
THANK YOU for listening and supporting me, my family, the band, and the music. I love you for it.
I hope you like Court Street.
In this video, I mumble about it a bit while Dylan cleans up his gear. We’re thinking of submitting it to some film festivals.

ABOUT JD –
JD Eicher is a Youngstown, OH-area born and bred musician known for dynamic vocals and meaningful, carefully-crafted lyrics. He possesses “an original voice, both literally and figuratively. With a lyrical talent culled from the great tradition of American singer/songwriters, Eicher also brings the melodic sensibility of great British songwriters such as Paul McCartney and Elvis Costello.” (Wildy’s World)
With four full-length albums to his credit, JD was enlisted to create the soundtrack to author Nicholas Sparks’s (The Notebook, A Walk To Remember) 20th novel, Two By Two. The now stand-alone release consists of songs sourced from his previous albums, along with the title track, written specifically for the novel and its themes.
An artist who tours extensively in the US, Eicher also founded the Youngstown, OH-based JD’s Summer Songfest festival in 2014, which showcases national and local artists and raises money for a variety of community non-profits. He has shared billing with a wide range of well-known acts, including Coldplay, Maroon 5, Train, Dave Matthews Band, The Fray, Matt Nathanson, Sister Hazel, and more.
