Another weird, haunting indie folk song from yours truly! There is also a weird, haunting music video located here. This is all part of my first official release, which I am super excited about, under my stage name MK Ellison.
I love this song. Cover with guitar, piano. From her 1995 album Wrecking Ball, which Wikipedia calls "career redefining."
As long as I am posting moody, folksy songs with voice and guitar...here's another one!
Instrumental country death song
This mp3 was converted from a video I made, recording stereo audio straight into my phone. It's a rough draft with minimal instrumentation and arrangement I'm hoping to develop further with a group that recently started coming together called The Wishing Well Divers. [more inside]
Who doesn't like a song about forbidden love? An acoustic cover for a Wednesday. [more inside]
This is a song about what a serial murderer might feel like after he's been at it for so long he can hardly stand it anymore. [more inside]

I wrote a country song awhile back but never got around to figuring out how it should end. The latest Mefi Music Challenge provided suitable inspiration. [more inside]

This is not the happiest song I've ever written. [more inside]

Bluesy folksy track, an ode to Johanna [more inside]
A song about a night out on the town [more inside]
Townes Van Zandt was a talented man who wrote beautiful songs. I own some guitars and recording equipment and have a lot of spare time. Here I embarrass myself and denigrate Van Zandt's legacy by attempting to cover him. But I did add a string arrangement!
I am re-uploading this song. I wrote it a while back and recorded last weekend. I'm just learning to record, so the guitars are a little quiet. Tips would be very welcome! I'm stoked I get to re-post, since I spelled "Abilene" wrong last time.
