Song written with my old band, Big Ghost, about unseasonable New England weather. Bit of an oldy but goody, I threw together this recording to send to my old bandmates on the east coast as I live in sin in California. Hope you enjoy. If you can, please help me with toning down the harshness while keeping the excited sound. [more inside]
A song about the winter weather or lack thereof, the defining El Niño of my childhood, family troubles, a metaphor about my lack of perspective, and an impression of a musical sheep. [more inside]
A piano composition written a while ago at the end of autumn for the first snowfall. The changing of seasons; the coming winter; delight in the sounds of children playing in the fresh fallen snow. [more inside]
My one minute song recorded on Garage Band. (circa 2005).
At least I hope it will be. [more inside]
Back in either middle school or high school, in music class, I wrote my very first melody with a classmate named Mathias Knutzen. The assignment was to take a text from one of our books and create a song with it. We chose Robert Frost's poem and came up with this pseudo-jazzy tune. I always liked it, so I kept the "digital chord sheet" around and played it from time to time. More than 15 years later, here now is a brand new recorded version -- complete with brushed drums and falsetto background vocals. [more inside]
Today's forecast calls for a wintry mix of snow and melancholy. [more inside]
Wake me up when the snow is gone.
Mainly an experiment with a new microphone. The vocal needs to be re-done, and made louder. Otherwise, it's okay. Oddly enough, it's about this girl... I hope it's not gauche to post lyrics :-) Longing for summer In the Snow that fell around us All around the town Following children Running In and out of my life Getting drunk and dancing All we had we lost Turned into Ice Waiting for aeroplanes How could You expect much more from me? Did we stand a chance? I tried to keep you Dipping Into London guidebooks Thermals and two bedspreads Even though we knew you'd Never Delay ?
