I came out as trans to my partner of 20 years and she ended our marriage and I'm a wreck of a human being and anyway here's a song
I released a new EP today! All songs I recorded in and around my house in the last year. This song started off much more stripped down and it feels all grown up now. That's my brother on the drums
somehow managed to write this today and then record a million takes of it on my front porch. chords are far apart, words are close together — pretty difficult for me to sing but we're getting there

The Story Is Everything - Ma Cher
"Won't shake it at the Mardi Gras, why don'tcha come home and shake it all for me!" Americana and Second-Line rhythms combine in a character piece about a bayou boy skeptical of the charms of the Big Easy. The upcoming album, Tales from the Crescent, is a New Orleans-themed song cycle that crosses multiple genre lines in its quest to musically capture the complicated creature that is the Crescent City.

Based on a true story. Written and performed by Tim Long. [more inside]
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?
I like it again. This is the piano track I posted before (now without the synth, and with vocals and backing vocal harmony) but I think I've mostly solved the problem that to me the whole thing felt kind of lifeless. (At least I felt confident enough to replace the old track with this on SoundCloud, hope that was wise.) What do you think?
Down in the Well
Vocal and guitar, one rough take, one track, melodic and intense two minutes and thirty seconds
A song (accompanied by accordion) about past, current and future(?) events. May or may not be helpful for election obsessives. Spoiler warning: spoilers. [more inside]
This little song that's somewhat about Don Draper sprung to life while rewatching the entire series of Mad Men. This is the audio of a video that's here, if you're into that sort of thing.
A Heartbreak Cliche
I've been cranking out a lot of songs almost involuntarily lately and many of them seem to sort into a genre I think of as "Tragicomic Americana," a traditional mode of American blues, country, and folk songwriting that ruminates on heartbreaks and losses exaggerated to such dramatic extremes, the effect becomes darkly comic, like Hank Williams's "There's a Tear in my Beer," for example. Well, FWIW, here's my latest attempt to make a minor contribution to that grand tradition... [more inside]

Gentle, warm, almost mantra-like song featuring guitars, piano, bass, lap steel, drums, bass, melodica, and vocals -- kinda sorta about seeing love as an art project. [more inside]

This is a pretty stripped-down new song in kind of a singer-songwriter style. I'd be very curious to hear your thoughts. [more inside]
project for senior seminar. Acoustic + vocal. Poorly recorded, poorly written, poor performed :P [more inside]
Ooo! Spooky! Well, it should be pretty obvious that this song has almost nothing to do with literal werewolves, and everything to do with a predatory mindset, but that doesn’t keep it from weirding my mother out every time I play it!
A song about a Devil's X-Ray.
This is my great, sweeping ballad … my Piano Man, if you will. Tinged with chili powder. [more inside]

A bittersweet song of love. I produced a video for this last week that came out really well. Have a look at Google. There's a lower quality version up at You Tube as well. Thanks!
