I came up with the chorus in the shower this morning and decided to record something by day's end. [more inside]
"Maybe I could be the one they adore—that could be my reputation." I had The Wallflowers' "Sleepwalker" in my head earlier and decided to learn the chords and record it. [more inside]
Super 8's "King of the World" is one of my favorite long-lost '90s songs. [more inside]
A foot tapping piano-based rocker with some catchy riffs and pretty little intro that walks the line of being a little too long but IMO really sets the mood for the song.
So a good long while back I posted an early demo version of this song. This, right here, is the final finished product that is on the EP. [more inside]
My band recorded this in my basement the night before our show at the blind pig. (The second song is Wasted Hearts.)
Just a song about a girl. [more inside]
A love song to the state of Michigan. [more inside]
Another song from yet another band I'm in, The Eric Weiler Band. Generally the quick-and-dirty go-to description many people find for us is along the lines of "Tom Waits singing for the E Street Band." Make your own call. I play the Hammond.
We were going for a John Cougar Mellencamp, Americana, country-rock thing. We have no interest in having a message, hence the stupid words. And we think vague singing about "Uncle Sam", "the war", "the factory", etc., is funny.
