Sobering Up

Upbeat acoustic indie folk rock blues! Most of my songs are about drinking.

Nice, I really liked that. You sounded kind of like Nil Lara.

This is great. Ant you should let us know when you're doing another gig so there can be another London meetup.

Wow, armoured-ant... This is excellent stuff. Going on the iPod. Please post more!

By the time the song got to "I just can't breathe. I wanna be free" I had goosepimples. Sweet.

Wow, this is really fantastic.

Concuring with cortex, the chorus nails it! You actually remind me of some of my wifes favorites, like Nancy Griffith (sp) or Joni Mitchell.

My wife is gonna shit. You should get signed.

Your vocals are what do this -- they've got a real sincerity of feeling. Shades of Richard Thompson, too. Excellent work.

It's almost a year later. I still get goosebumps at "I just can't breathe."

I can never let this play just once when it comes up in iTunes.

This reminds me so much of Dispatch. Keep on playing, love it!

Reminds me of my grade school love of Third Eye Blind, but with decidedly more earnest lyrics.
