If English is your first language and you could translate my old Italian text, please contact me. I semi-acustici Balancing Act, un incrocio fra i CSN&Y piu` sognanti e i Violent Femmes piu` stralunati, sono un ensemble folk di Los Angeles formato dai cantautori poli-strumentisti Jeff Davis e Steve Wagner, che pennellano acquarelli surreali come Wonderful World Tonight (1986), Red Umbrella (1987), Kicking Clouds Across The Sky (1987), Generator (1988) e Fishing In Your Eyes (1988), in cui fondono avant-jazz e armonie vocali folk. Three Squares And A Roof (july 1987 - Primitive Man, 1987) e` forse l'album migliore, seguito da Curtains (1988).

Jeff Davis later formed Niagara, which released 01 (Bliss, 1998), a mostly overlooked album that was instead catchier than anything the Balancing Act did, and 02 (2000).
