My Roots are Strong and Deep (the Microphones cover)

This is a cover (gah, feels like all I can do lately) of "My Roots are Strong and Deep" by the Microphones. Features my friend Taylor Bridges on heavily distorted banjo, and recorded in this wonderful, cement stairwell back at the school I used to attend. Anyone know of good, secluded, reverby spots in Portland, OR? The sort where people generally won't walk by, but if they do they won't snicker?

Fingerpickujah

A largely pointless endeavor, a rendition of Hallelujah with quick fingerpicking and banjos (what's new?).

Creep (acoustic STP cover)

My attempt to exorcise some high school nostalgia. The lyrics are as dumb as they always were, but now there's banjo and mandolin! [more inside]

Dammit: Reprise

A revision of my earlier version of this cover, since I had a night to burn at school. Bigger, a bit less background noise, a little more banjo.

Louis Collins

Quick 'n' dirty cover of Mississippi John Hurt's old song played on my resonator guitar. Levels are a bit off, volume jumps up and down a little... but here it is anyway. [more inside]

So Does Everybody Else, Only Not So Much

Adaptation (more or less) of an Ogden Nash poem of the same name. Essentially an apology from an aging man who spends his time boring people with the same stories.

Old Man

A cover of my very favorite Randy Newman song, which is also maybe the saddest song I know.

Shape of My Heart

This is a cover of The Backstreet Boys' Shape of my Heart, done with only banjo and voice. I recorded it for a weekly covers contest that a few friends and I came up with. I'm less than excited about the production, but oh well...

Power of Love

Thanks to two class cancellations due to ice storms in the Capital, I was able to arrange and record this Valentine's day treat. Imagine Huey Lewis, baritone, with a banjo.

You Are My Sunshine

Let's call it EMOldtimey. Or, really, let's not. It's not a damned clean rendition, but with this old heartbreaker you don't have to be. My pre-verbal niece was purported to love it, and that's good enough for me.
