The first in a series of tunes I'm doing in the styles of my favorite songwriters. This one was written and performed in the style of Neko Case. [more inside]
Here's a version of the old standard I did with my friend Emily. I love this woman's voice and had a great time working on it.
Big Ghost's version of this, which gets nice and jam-bandy, we feel. Thanks in advance for continuing mixing/mastering advice. [more inside]
From my old band, recorded about 6 years ago. The crappy coda on the end was my bad idea, but I can't edit it out now.
A quiet song about looking around for all the people you've misplaced over the years. Guitar, piano, cello, recorded live using a field recorder. Vocals overdubbed later at home. Unreleased from a new Tangemeenie side-project my wife Lori will eventually also contribute vocals to, called "The Wishing Well Divers." [more inside]
A live recording from my band.
Just a song about a girl. [more inside]
This is an alt-country-shanty by The Mulligrubs--the band I play bass in. They let me play piano, too, sometimes. We're playing a show tonight in Boston, MA. There's more examples of our smoothness on our MySpace page. [more inside]
This is Bell Dora, an alt-country band I had until very recently. Here we are, I'm the one in orange. It's a bit of a ballad, and was my first foray ever into the pedal steel (a crazy-hard instrument). I used the C6 slab.
This is the first song I have ever written, on a dare for my husband's alt-country band. They liked it enough to record it. The handclaps make me laugh.
OK, I didn't write or record this; my brother did. But I did want to share it, and it's OK with him. Anyway, it's, uh, a song with a hook.
