Harvest Home

A day late for St. Patrick's Day, but here's an Irish tune. Not quite as triplet-y as you'd hear it from a bona fide Celtic player.

Tiny Tangled Trainwreck

I play mandolin and haven't written anything new in entirely too long. Today I remedied that while also facing my fear of writing/playing in the key of F.

Me and Al

This is a sketch of a work in progress. It started out as a simple cascade riff on the top three strings of the guitar and morphed into what appears to be an Irish fiddle lament. [more inside]

John & Tanya - Werewolf Night

This is from our JUST released album, The Story Is Everything. We're trying to beat a crazy deadline and sell 17 CDs before the end of the day tomorrow (Thursday, May 17). If we do it, we can bring physical discs to the Kerrville Folk Festival next weekend. Here's the link, should you happen to feel generous. Thanks for listening!

Nu Slang

As advertised, this Shins song changed my life. Now I sit around the house on Sundays recording wistful mandolin tracks on my computer instead of going outside. Thanks Shins!

Enemies

Young people questioning morally ambiguous, age-old disputes. Singing about it...through me. Also about hot fudge. Yum. YUM.

Grand Illusions

I've started a blog on which I post a new song a day...this is the third one (last Wednesday). That's the story behind this song. It's about trying to hold on to a time and place (or at least that's what I said in the post). [more inside]

Highway 20

My first deliberately-written country music song. Or is it western? Or roots music? Can't tell, as I cheered for the winning side in the Civil War. ;-) You can detect a few inadvertent influences, to be sure, but let me know what you think. [more inside]

Joshua's Lament

This was one of those late jam sessions that turned into an early morning song writing session. This melody originated to the sun coming up over the field in my back yard. Its reasons like this that make me thankful we always left a mic on record while we hung out. I'm on mandolin, my friend is playing guitar.

Fountain

My friend and I play a lot of acoustic music around local coffee shops in town. Here's one of the many mandolin tunes we wrote in my living room last summer. I'm on mandolin and my friend is playing backup guitar.

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.
