HURT – Nine Inch Nails cover – Run & Gun style

Sorry I’m late. I’ve received so may requests to do this one and I heard ya. Trent Reznor wrote it. Johnny Cash/Rick Rubin covered it. I tried to do something different with it. It’s actually 1BPM slower than Cash/Rubin. I was channeling “Wall of Sound” meets David Bowie/Liam Mckahey. Oh! I recorded all of this in GarageBand on an iPad with my trusty Lewitt DGT 650 USB mic. I also shot the video on said iPad sitting on a milk crate behind my neighborhood Piggly Wiggly store. I ❤️ art & I ❤️ y’all!

Many thanks to my friends at LEWITT for the great DGT 650 USB mic. It’s got that feeling!. http://www.lewitt-audio.com

I love singing this song. It was written by Claire Campbell, Page Campbell and Deeds Davis. They are a band called Hope For Agoldensummer. They are my friends and make incredible art. I’m trying some new style for Tunesday. I hope it’s OK. I hope. I ❤️ y’all.

This track was engineered and produced by Martin Kearns at Down In Deep Studio.

Wonder Of You – Elvis Presley cover – Seasick version

Look what I found in my archives! I forgot about this little seasick inducing nugget. Andrew and I shot this in our ‘wild and crazy guy’ phase. (Well excuuuuuse me!). This song was written by Baker Knight and a hit for ELVIS.
I dedicate this song to all you P³ers. These past few weeks have been a rollercoaster ride and you stuck by me and I ❤️ y’all. Let’s keep doin’ our thing. We’re still in this together.

Don’t Dream It’s Over – Crowded House cover

I’ve always loved this song. I received a few requests for it recently and now seems like a good time to do it. These are perplexing days. The best I can do is just keep goin’. I ❤️ y’all.

* I gotta learn better mic placement. I beg your pardon.

Many thanks to my friends at LEWITT for the great microphone. It gets the job done, real good. http://www.lewitt-audio.com

Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore – Walker Brothers cover

Here’s a wonderful downer classic from The Walker Brothers. Written by Bob Crewe and Bob Gaudio and first done by Frankie Valli. I composed and recorded this track in Garageband on an iPad that I borrowed from a pal. The video was shot on an iPhone 4s that has been banging around in my suitcase for the past 2.5 years. I thought I lost it in Australia. All kinds of stuff in there. I use the tools around me to make art. I ❤️ art and I ❤️ y’all!

Many thanks to my friends at LEWITT
for the great DGT 650 USB microphone. It’s a wall of sound!

Losing My Religion – R.E.M. cover – Gutted version. 😪

This week has been a wild ride. I tried and I stumbled. Sometimes it felt as if I was falling into a deep hole. I saw your hand and I grabbed it and we fell together. Then we were flying. Thank you.
