Trying out a new thing with an honest song about actual life. [more inside]
This is a dark folk song about Depression-era New Orleans. It's a collaboration between my wife and I.
As autumn arrives, it always gives me a feeling of glorious sad sentimentality, almost like a chemical reaction. Whether I actually have something to feel sentimental about or not, those chilly sun-filled days create a longing like a chemical reaction. This song is that feeling for me, when you can't get back the past, but flounder to try. Guitar and vox recorded live with a single guitar overdub. [more inside]
In a huge creative drought for awhile, I found this old thing I wrote and recorded years ago. When I was new to Garageband. [more inside]
I wrote this very recently and decided to record it while it was still fresh. It still needs a lot of work instrumentally, and structurally as well. I'm thinking about working with some musician friends to spruce it up a bit. I would love feedback!
