I came out as trans to my partner of 20 years and she ended our marriage and I'm a wreck of a human being and anyway here's a song
This is a dark folk song about Depression-era New Orleans. It's a collaboration between my wife and I.
A quick semi-impromptu-one-take-in-my-pajamas recording of a sad little Wilco/Elliot Smith-ish song that's been buzzing around my head. Using a crappy MXL mic which I really don't like, but was the closest to hand. [more inside]
As autumn arrives, it always gives me a feeling of glorious sad sentimentality, almost like a chemical reaction. Whether I actually have something to feel sentimental about or not, those chilly sun-filled days create a longing like a chemical reaction. This song is that feeling for me, when you can't get back the past, but flounder to try. Guitar and vox recorded live with a single guitar overdub. [more inside]
In a huge creative drought for awhile, I found this old thing I wrote and recorded years ago. When I was new to Garageband. [more inside]
A song of loneliness and betrayal - sounds fun, right? [more inside]
The song people always play to their darlin'. Those verses though, so heartbreaking. [more inside]
I wrote this very recently and decided to record it while it was still fresh. It still needs a lot of work instrumentally, and structurally as well. I'm thinking about working with some musician friends to spruce it up a bit. I would love feedback!
Someone is reliable but grouchy. Something very bad might have happened. I got my neighbour to play the accordian.
