Rerecorded version of "'Til We're Dead" from my forthcoming EP. [more inside]
I think I managed to write a somewhat upbeat song! Well, upbeat if you ignore the title and lyrics. It's got: hammond organ, celesta, acoustic guitar, bass, drums, and some epic "Woo-oo-oooh" back up vocals.
A song written and recorded today in one go. Can you guess what it's about? [more inside]
Only the brave or shameless attempt to cover Nick Drake.
Another Townes Van Zandt cover, though I think this is the best thing I've produced [at home] yet. Amazing what a little compression will do. A beautiful, simple, moving song that I can't do justice to.
A lovely, understated tune recently released on Elliott Smith's posthumous collection of outtakes, "New Moon" on Kill Rock Stars. Being an obsessive fan of Smith's, I figured I'd upload my cover in tribute. It doesn't come close to matching his briliance but then, who does? Also I flubbed the solo a bit, just so you know.
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!
