about

Connie Acher New York, New York

A New York City visual artist, Melodie Provenzano conceived of "Connie Acher" in 1996, while obsessively creating outsider folk pop on her four track late at night. Propelled by the tribulations of love and being alive, "Acher" stands for "one who aches" and "Connie" represents the pseudonymous character of her musical voice. ... more

Track Name: Sunny Day
It's a sunny day, though it rained this morning
It's a lost cause, it's a lost cause to pursue
Though it looked realistic this morning
It's a dying fish with metals in its mouth
And I caught it this morning

It's a sunny day, it's a sunny day
Though it rained this morning
It's a lost cause to pursue
Though it looked realistic this morning
Track Name: Trying to be Great
It's not easy trying to be great
It's not patience when you don't know how to wait
Who said that you could make a painting with no paint

Love and marriage are still around
Art's everywhere, a cultural playground
Information's battleground
LA's a fake city so I've heard
The internet is the big word, I've never been
Oh the smell, when the septic tank was cleansed

Whose going to Miami, the Playboy Mansion
Or living like the last night on Earth?
Whose got the knowledge and knows what it's worth?

It's not easy trying to be great
It's not patience when you don't know how to wait
Who said that you could make a painting without paint

It's not easy trying to be great
It's not patience when you don't know how to wait
Track Name: 12 Hour Day
I'm waiting to take a shower
After my 12 hour day of painting wooden panels
Each a different color of the Italian flag
for Gucci, Prada and Dolce Gabbana

Tomorrow they'll want a floor to look like sandstone
And 15 gator boards to look like weathered steal
Weathered steal, weathered steal
Still I'll be tired and will need to take a shower
After my 12 hour day

The day after, they'll move 50 pound bags of rocks
And form geometrical shapes next to the fake sandstone
And I'll paint what's left all white
I'll paint what's left all white
Track Name: Doing More
I'm only tending to my commitment behind closed doors
On the bed reading, Death of a Salesman, when I get bored
Wishing for an audience, who would tell me to keep doing more
Doing more, doing more, who would tell me to keep doing more
