For the cortex compilation. Recorded today as a quick one-take solo acoustic guitar piece. Hope you like it!
This is a cover of the Disney song, with me on two acoustic guitars. Recorded Dec. 4, 2000.
This was inspired by Senator Barack Obama's courageous stance against 8th grade graduations, which I heard about on NPR's Wait Wait, Don't tell Me back in August of 2005.
Working draft of a song I'm engineering—written by friend and former bandmate Brian, who is on guitar and vocals, with keys added by moi. Feedback/criticism desirable. This is my first real effort to play producer/engineer to someone else's material.
Another acoustic living room demo, same lineup as last one. This is an original, inspired by the way the my timing seemed to be so screwed up back in my single days. I'd get a crush on someone who didn't know I existed. Then, sometime later, they'd be interested in me... but I was already over them. Someday I want to record this with a cello in the arrangement.
I'm singing and playing the Reggie Lucas-written hit off Madonna's first album, but I just threw in George Harrison's wistfully lilting lick on the Beatles' "Revolver" classic for fun.
This is off of my album "Long Story," recorded in summer 1999. It's instrumental acoustic guitar, with some Spanish guitar touches. If you like it, let me know, and I can post other parts of the album. It starts and finishes a bit abruptly because, on the album, each song musically runs into the next.
A short, pretty, desperate conversation about need and rejection. Plus arpeggios!
Cover of a John Vanderslice song about Requiem for a Dream.
Cowgirl campfire song, lead-in to a solo CD I did in February. Thanks to Eideteker for the file conversion.
Now that the summer's ending, there's a cold wind blowing in / So we've got to build some shelter, before it rains again
Ooh, bop bop, ba-ooh, bop bop. All I know is the road and I love you.
My band recorded this for a Song Fight. It's quirky casio acuostic rock, with just a hint of out of tune accordion, and percussion supplied by a djembe. That's me singing.
Acoustic demo about what I did during the Cold War.
Demo of a song about being far away from the spy you love. With acoustic guitar and tuba.
