Acoustic folk heartbreak. [more inside]
Home demo for a future studio recording. A contemplative tune about a man working on the DEW Line in 1950s Canada, writing a letter home to his estranged wife. Lyrics below the fold. (Pardon the tentative lead vox, as this one's a tiny bit above my normal range and it's brand-new.) [more inside]
Smooooth, sloooow reggae featuring a dreamy brass/ebow instrumental break, "sensitive" percussion, a falsetto bridge, and a sweet guitar solo at the end. [more inside]
Country Western waltz ballad. Featuring faux-pedal steel and more twang than I usually evidence. [more inside]
Another quick song for RPM08. Not so happy with the mix, but I like the way the song turned out.
Let's call it EMOldtimey. Or, really, let's not. It's not a damned clean rendition, but with this old heartbreaker you don't have to be. My pre-verbal niece was purported to love it, and that's good enough for me.
