I Love My Plants is an Authentic Tribute to Spider Plants and Philodendrons


Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mark Truesdell first wrote and recorded “I Love My Plants” in the mid-1990’s.  Recorded in one well-planned session at Polkasound Productions, Milwaukee - it was initially released on the full length “Mark Truesdell and The Lost Pioneers” cd in 1997.

The “Plants” song has since become a consistent favorite at live shows over the years and the 20+ year old recording has stood the of time - ready for release as a single download and disc.

The song artwork is a painting by Mark of his grandfather Harold Cotton referred to in the song lyrics.  

Mark sang and played acoustic and modified electric guitar, bass, percussion, and Casio keyboards on the recording.  Engineer and Producer Tom Brusky at Polkasound recorded the keyboard solo at the end. Tom has become a premier full-time Polka Band leader throughout the Midwest.

Mark’s current musical projects include: The Spirals with his wife Candice Truesdell Nokes, jazz drumming with Smith & Binder Jazz, and backing prominent poet/author Charles P. Ries in “Charles P. Ries and the MinkTronics”.
