"Above the Timberline" and "The Old Railroad" are two original songs written by Scott Conley and can be heard on "Greetings from Area Code 207 volume 1 and volume 2", available at your local record stores and at

Sam Pfeifle of the Portland Phoenix writes of "The Old Railroad": "I was particularly fond of volume 1's Timberline, but this tune literally ran chills up the back of my neck at first listen.

Authentic without being old-fashioned, traditional without retreading".  -Click on the Portland Phoenix link to read the full review: (The Beat Report, Oct 12-18, 2001)
