Bliss: A Soldier's Tale
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Jerome Parker
Bliss: A Soldier’s Tale is about Perry, a sexually fluid musician/veteran seeking repentance for the sins he committed as a soldier, First in the arms of an older chanteuse, then in the bosom of his conservative, Christian home-town. Will his spiritual journey, with all its worldy influences, lead to the forgiveness he seeks? Based on the german myth of Tannhauser.
