Barry Adelman, graduate of the University of Michigan and entrepreneur, is a singer/songwriter with over one hundred original songs. The Story of the Brown Cow was originally a song. With the encouragement of others, it was transformed into this book.
Some might say "spirit" or "divine inspiration" have gifted Barry with many songs; they come without any conscious thought. After many years, he has developed a skill to recognize statements and phrases that can be transformed into songs. For “The Brown Cow Song,” he woke one day and said, "Look at me now, look at me now, look at me now." Then he said "I'm a brown cow." The rest of the lyrics came quickly.
Barry Adelman was born in Brooklyn, New York, and now resides in Walker Valley, New York. He is president of Outdoors, a retail clothing store in Chester, New York, started in 1975.
