I'm happy to present my collaboration with not_on_display: this is our version of a neat little tune that was included in The American Songbag (a 1927 folk song collection by Carl Sandburg); the song there was itself derived from a late 19th-century song by William S. Hays. [more inside]

It's well known that Radiohead went to Bob Dylan for inspiration on the title of Subterranean Homesick Alien; it's less well known that they actually lifted the song structure and lyrics themselves from this rare demo recording. [more inside]
This is a dark folk song about Depression-era New Orleans. It's a collaboration between my wife and I.
As it's Valentine's Day, here's a song about love. Well, kind of about love. Actually it's about the end of love, as it fades due to age and fatigue, and the death of romance. Errr...happy Valentine's Day! [more inside]
This song has a feel I haven't easily been able to reproduce since recording it. I can barely play the song live. Despite some horrific essing, probably my favorite home recording.
Not so different from anything else I've done, but I'm proud of the production of this one. [more inside]
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.
