Performance week: You asked for it...sort of.

So, you are getting more clips of me howling and such. I like self defecating humor...uh, depreciating. Anyway, I've just been using my laptop's camera to record these clips, so getting the right mixture of guitar and vocals has been difficult. In this clip the guitar is way quiet and the vocals can be heard clearly. It's a good thing that I am not tone deaf or this would qualify as torture for all of us. Actually, getting a stronger vocal mix on this tune is more appropriate. This is a song that I wrote in the Fall of 2006 called, "Leaves Changing". This song is one that I used to sing a lot by myself when I was going through chemo the following year. I think when you listen to the song you will be able to understand why.

I liked this one a lot too. I think the mix isn't bad, the guitar comes through enough, but the vocals definitely come out clearer. Enjoyed the lyrics too.

Loved that, Grunty. Good things do come if you let them.

I could hear you way better here. :)

When's the album coming out?? You certainly know what you're doing. I wish I could have listened to it louder though (I maxed out the volume on the video and my compy).

So what are your influences?

Jason~ Thanks! It would be nice to be able to do a better job of the video, but it is best to just do it anyway.

Jules~ True dat! I was thinking that I often am too guarded to let these good things happen.

Rawbean~ Officially? I need to employ the help of a friend to do a final record of these songs. But I did do some pretty darn good 8-track demos about four years ago. If you wanted a sampler CD just give me the word. I will talk about influences on my next post.

One of my all time favorites!!!! :) I can definitely see how this was your song through the tough stuff. This one's very touching to see you perform :)

If I were as talented and good as you, I would be performing somewhere every week, srsly. You should get out there.
