HONKY-TONK COUNTRY SINGLE “THAT ONE LAST ROSE”
"That One Last Rose" is an original, traditional honky-tonk country song, in the style of Buck Owens, Ray Price, Dwight Yoakam. Playing on it (and on the album it comes from, Last Rose) are some incredible, truly legendary musicians. Byron Berline, Dan Dugmore, and, on other songs on the album, Jason Carter, and Kristin Scott Benson. See my website for more information. [more inside]
A bad omens country song with my lowest drawly early morning vocals ever and a cool slippery guitar riff in the chorus. [more inside]
That's All It Took
With five of us living in a small downtown Toronto house, I don't get a whole heck of a lot of music recording time. I recently had a few days all alone for the first time in over a year (ch-ch-changes!) so me and the dog lit a fire and recorded a cover of a Gram & Emmylou song by way of the George Jones & Gene Pitney original, featuring some guitars and the old family Heintzman piano.

I'm Movin' On
Hi! This is a cover my over-60 amateur musician buddies and I (The Busted Bones) created using a small Zoom recorder... sent between us - quarantine style! [more inside]
For a Spanish Guitar - My cover of a Gene Clark song
Hi Everyone, This is my cover of Gene Clark's classic For a Spanish Guitar, a song Dylan praised by saying anyone who have been proud to have written it. All my own playing, and I recorded myself in my bedroom a few years ago. Let me know what you think! Talltaleheart
pop song with a train beat feel [more inside]
Know Your Rights
Part of a country/folk Clash covers project I'm doing. [more inside]
Another weird, haunting indie folk song from yours truly! There is also a weird, haunting music video located here. This is all part of my first official release, which I am super excited about, under my stage name MK Ellison.
Deeper Well (Emmylou Harris cover)
I love this song. Cover with guitar, piano. From her 1995 album Wrecking Ball, which Wikipedia calls "career redefining."
Post of the week! This is a new (and improved?) version of a song I posted quite a while ago (as "Drinking all day"). Light, airy, one-chord country song with moody lyrics. Added second guitar part, violin, harmony vocal. I think I'm getting somewhere with my recording capabilities--what do you think? Any thoughts on the mix?
(Gettin It On) On Christmas Eve
Bro-country Christmas wishes to you and yours. Apologies for the paucity of pickup trucks and SoCo.
Every second of the time
As long as I am posting moody, folksy songs with voice and guitar...here's another one!
Death Would Be Unkind
Instrumental country death song
Hand for the Hog
Another living room recording, this time live on a single mic. A lesser-known Roger Miller tune interpolated with Stone's Rag, featuring some important lessons about Corwin Bolt & the Wingnuts' second-favorite barnyard animal.
Thoughts in B-flat
In the past couple of weeks, I found myself going back to a piece that I'd started working on a few years ago -- probably because it's in a slower triple meter that's somewhat calming for me. This is a condensed one-minute version, featuring piano and guitar, for the 60 Seconds and Under #2 MeFi Music Challenge. [more inside]
Night Train to Memphis
Night Train to Memphis by Roy Acuff Jr, recorded live by Corwin Bolt & the Wingnuts in Eugene, OR, 8/29/2016. Old time fiddle music with a washboard groove. [more inside]
Keep On Stumpin'
Getting drunk in the woods with some MeFites led to jokes about songs on a fictional country/bluegrass album called Keep On Stumpin', which led this afternoon to writing and recording the title track. Find a stump to dump the junk in your trunk on! [more inside]
My entry for the final round of Nur Ein over on Song Fight. I was going for a Gram and Emmylou sort of thing. With perfect harmonies by greenish. [more inside]
This mp3 was converted from a video I made, recording stereo audio straight into my phone. It's a rough draft with minimal instrumentation and arrangement I'm hoping to develop further with a group that recently started coming together called The Wishing Well Divers. [more inside]
Always On My Mind (cover)
Resonator and baritone uke, trying to channel Willie Nelson though maybe via John Darnielle a little it turns out. [more inside]
Dark as a Dungeon
An old Merle Travis song that I learned years ago when I first started getting into bluegrass. Another chance to break in the new resonator guitar, and do some fun chorus harmonies. [more inside]
(I'm Gonna Drink A) Fifth Of July
Twitter joke that turned into an actual country song an hour later. I'm in Huntsville with nothing but my ukulele, so this didn't get the full band treatment I'd otherwise do, but it works pretty well like this.
A lonely cosmic country rock song loosely inspired by Neal Stephenson's Seveneves [more inside]
Always on my mind
You were.... [more inside]
We'll Sweep Out the Ashes in the Morning
Who doesn't like a song about forbidden love? An acoustic cover for a Wednesday. [more inside]

Inspired by this post, I wrote a song about getting murdered in the woods. [more inside]

Hank Williams and tons o' tape delay! [more inside]
Harpies at the Bar
This is a song about what a serial murderer might feel like after he's been at it for so long he can hardly stand it anymore. [more inside]
I love the fiddle on this one. This is the second track (third posted) from my EP "Skyclad Revival," releasing March 13. [more inside]
Big Brown Bottle
Drunken country-jazz jamboree, in reverie. A song about commiseratin' and never hatin'. To Whisky. [more inside]
Little Bitty Town
Another track off our country album, "This Is Naughtybilly" -- this time a song about a young woman, a small town, and a hotel on the edge of town.
Another song from our forthcoming country album, "This Is Naughtybilly." A celebration of the various adult actresses from Minnesota. [more inside]
Ai Yai Yai Yai
Another song from our forthcoming country album. This is a song written in the filthiest Spanglish I could come up with, imagining a Day of the Dead diorama set in a brothel. [more inside]
Another song from our forthcoming album "This is Naughtybilly." This one is just a series of dirty puns about Moorhead, Minnesota. [more inside]
The third country song from our forthcoming album "This is Naughtybilly." A trucking song, written using 70s CB slang, told from the point of view of truck stop prostitutes. [more inside]
Your Stripper Sucks
The second song from our naughty country music album, "This is Naughtybilly." This song is about an especially bad exotic dancers. [more inside]
Bus Stop Shannon
If Neil Young wrote songs about space aliens seducing men on buses. Which, frankly, I'm surprised he didn't. [more inside]
As advertised, this Shins song changed my life. Now I sit around the house on Sundays recording wistful mandolin tracks on my computer instead of going outside. Thanks Shins!
My love/hate song is a cover of Delbert McClinton's country/gospel classic (actually written by Frankie Miller & Jerry Lynn Williams) accompanied by the pump organ. [more inside]
Cave Creek Jail (The Real Deal EP Version!)
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]
No Lights, No Sirens
Me back in country mode. Written by a band of a friend of a friend long 6 years ago, Sixty Acres. Recorded tonight. Even missed Must See TV! [more inside]
Let It Go Or Give In (The Real Album Version!)
I've posted this song and then it's evolved version - now here it is in its FINAL (almost) entirety. [more inside]
Gettin' Outta Dodge
Just a short instrumental (my favorite kind) comprised of a train beat, steel guitar riffs and some other riffs thrown in for good measure. [more inside]
I Stand with the Bears
I sat down to work on stuff for my art-rock band, but wound up demoing a Nashville-style country song in favor of gay marriage. I have no idea where this stuff comes from some times. [more inside]
AcoustoFolksyCountrySappiness! [more inside]
There Ain't Love In Your Heart
Country Western waltz ballad. Featuring faux-pedal steel and more twang than I usually evidence. [more inside]
In the Constellation of the Pines
Revenge and ukulele. [more inside]
I'm taking this night class in 'Audio Recording' at NYU, and we assembled a small group of people to practice making field recordings in Washington Square Park. 'Hot Potato' was sung and played by a duo in town from Tennessee who played accordion and ukulele. [more inside]
Woke up this morning with a sore throat and my voice about an octave lower than usual so I figured it was time to record a cover of Roger Miller's despicable novelty hit that was #1 on the country charts the day I was born. Despicable because it's a song written from the perspective of a complete cunt. So I brought some self loathing to the table, along with the sore throat and my complete inability to play blues guitar.
Kylie vs. The Ex
A heart-breaking tale of love, loss and relatively famous Antipodean sirens. [more inside]
