Fly

This is the first track we've recorded for our next album. I'd love to hear what you all think...

Whatever (Folk Song in C)

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.

Light a Candle

Dan and Leland are an acoustic duo blending great guitar playing and vocals with melodic songwriting and thoughtful lyrics.

Going To Abilene

I am re-uploading this song. I wrote it a while back and recorded last weekend. I'm just learning to record, so the guitars are a little quiet. Tips would be very welcome! I'm stoked I get to re-post, since I spelled "Abilene" wrong last time.

Lexington Avenue Line

In a departure for me, this tune features no percussion, synths, jaw harps, scrap metal or hand held mini-vibrators, but is simply accompanied by... an acoustic guitar. Radical, huh? Anyway, as you might guess from the title, the tune is a kind of meditation on New York City. Hope you enjoy.

Power of Love

Thanks to two class cancellations due to ice storms in the Capital, I was able to arrange and record this Valentine's day treat. Imagine Huey Lewis, baritone, with a banjo.

Floodplain

I have rerecorded this one two or three times since I wrote it in fall of '05. I've never really been able to sing it the way I really want to, which would sound a little like a mix of Brandi Carlile, KT Tunstall, and Janis Joplin (my voice just wasn't made that way). This is the closest I've ever gotten. Hohner-Gruhn guitar, Audio-Technica mic, and GarageBand.

Stop Payment

This was the perfect one-take song; it came together like magic and I didn't even have clipping problems when I mixed it. If only they could all be so cooperative. Hohner-Gruhn guitar, Audio-Technica microphone, and GarageBand.

A Face Among the Rest

Another song from my 4-track college days. Beware! Moody folk music ahead. Yes, it's about a girl. Isn't every song? (More Info.)

Bagel on the Malecon

A very New York-bred outlook at old-time Cuban music, recorded entirely with .. violas! This was my attempt to create asymmetrical but memorable melodies, clear textures crammed with material, and experiment with multitrack viola as a concept, an ensemble. The sound of the classic Cuban bands had all that - except the violas, that is. This track appears on my newly released CD, the VJOLA: WORLD ON FOUR STRINGS

The Wedding Song

A song I wrote for the wedding of a couple friends; performed by my brother and me five or six years back.

Somewhere In Between

Before the web, before I left college, I wrote songs. Lots of songs. This is from a tape I recorded in my apartment somewhere around 1993 on a shitty Tascam 4-track.

the Clockmaker's Daughter -- by the Notes and Scratches

Another song from our record, it's a quiet sad folky love song. I'm singing and playing the acoustic guitar.

Most of Mine

There was an episode of Will & Grace in which Harry Connick Jr's character cheats on Grace and then tries to get back together with her. Embarrassingly enough, that TV show was the inspiration for this song.
