Dusted off this chestnut. I love me some Tom Waits. It was written and produced by Waits and his wife Kathleen Brennan. Please look for and find their music.
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.
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
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!
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.
I often wonder. Does Robot feel sad? Does Robot get down when they can’t accomplish the thing they were designed to do? Sometimes I feel like an emotional robot, doing my best to act out my code. Is it just me? Are there robots living among us?
P³ers sent me a request, and I learn it and record it right there at my favorite coffee joint. No fuss. One take. Please pardon my wonky guitar playin’. This is fun, right?
As you may or may not know, I found an awesome secret coffee shop. It is run by the the nicest folks. I’ll go in there and check my emails and Facebook and the Twitters. Some people request songs. I learn ’em real quick and make a videos. Well, my friend Toby Huss happened to come by this day and we sang a song. I call them Coffee Shop Covers.
You wanted this Switcharoo, you got it! The Who and Elton John and Johnny Cash. 3 great tastes that taste great together. I even threw in a bit of Crescent City Blues as a little lagniappe. That’s the song Folsom Prison Blues was derived from. It was written by Gordon Jenkins and sung by Beverly Mahr before J. Cash picked it up and made it his very own. Can you name the other influences on this?
