Friday Feels! Los Lobos cover Estoy Sentado Aqui

Friday Feels time, y’all! “Estoy Sentado Aqui” was penned by Cesar Rosas and recorded by Los Lobos. It was also performed by Cheech Marin in the Kevin Costner classic Tin Cup. My grito could use some work.

Folsom Prison Blues mashed with Pinball Wizard!

Back in 1994 or so, I saw Gregory Dean Smalley perform this mashup at the Star Community Bar. I was floored. Greg was a force of supernatural proportions and he is missed. Many people have done it prior to me doing it. I guess it was always meant to be.

Friday Feels! “Crying” – Roy Orbison

A few folks asked me to take a swing at “Crying” by Roy Orbison so I gave it a go. It’s a tough one. Such a sad tune and I’m a sucker for a tear jerker. What should I do next. Keep weepin’! P

Sxip Shirey sure can write a song!

My friend, Sxip Shirey, wrote a song and let me sing it! We made a video for it in The Garden of Unearthly Delights at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in South Australia with some of the beautiful folks from Limbo and the fabulous Katie Spain.  It was 40℃ that day. THAT’S 104℉! Adelaide, it’s got that feeling.

Reflections of My Life – The Marmalade cover feat. Puddles & Nicole Atkins

 

This summer, before I left for Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Nicole Atkins fueled up her Vanna White and drove down from NashVegas to do some goofing off in the studio with me. We didn’t know what we were going to do until it was did. We recorded this The Marmalade ditty with Tim DeLaney and James Abercrombie. Just a few friends playing around with guitars and mics and harmonicas. “Reflections of My Life” was a 1969/1970 hit single for the Scottish band, The Marmalade. It was written by their lead guitarist Junior Campbell, and singer Dean Ford. And I love it.

Nicole has a new album coming out. Check her website for details.

James Abercrombie is the MAN behind the camera.
Tim DeLaney is the mic placer & mix master.
