So I finally got around to playing music in public, for people... I played for about an hour last night at this Christian coffee-shop (I was very "don't ask, don't tell" about my radical agnosticism). It was initially going to be me and my bandmate playing, but he had a family emergency at the last minute, leaving me to face the mass of sixteen-year-old Christian girls, the guys trying to get into their pants, and the middle-aged, balding, don't-look-like-they're-supposed-to-be-within-200-feet-of-the-sixteen-year-old-girls guys all by myself.

All in all, it went great. I got free coffee, the place was packed to the gills with people, everybody seemed to be having a good time, I sounded far more assured than I felt... I'm now the proud owner of a pack of chaste, underage groupies. Go, me!

A buddy of mine recorded the whole thing on his laptop and cut out some mp3s, so I figured I'd share a few, let everyone here bask in my reflected glory for a few minutes.

You can download the songs here. (You have to click on the link, then download from the page that'll come up. You can't just "save target as".)   EDIT: Scroll down a couple of posts for better links.

There's three songs in there; a cover of Ryan Adams' "Sweet Illusions", where I totally fuck up the bridge, a cover of Damien Rice's "Cannonball", which sounds great, if I have to say so myself, and an original called "Allison, You Never Really Know".

There was a girl there taking pictures with her digital camera; if she gets around to emailing them to me, I might post a couple of those on here.

Moral of the story, I'm now one step closer to the ultimate goal: actually being paid to do this shit. Would that be the greatest scam in the world, or what?

Okay. Here's a YouSendIt link for the file: http://s23.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=0P1J6L8QEEOHI267Y2FC3RG32V

Once that's expired, here's a MegaUpload link: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=5AK0H9RT

it's a beautiful track and your voice control is definitely improving.

So yesterday, the day before my birthday, I spent the evening not receiving gifts, but rather giving them.  Specifically, the gift of song.  And this time I videotaped the fucker.

YouTube links for everyone!

Allison, You Never Really Know
Night Lights
Dancing About Architecture
True
Sidewalk Days

Sorry to jump on this late, but I don't understand this myspace garbage. How do I listen to the songs uploaded previous to these four songs currently on? I'm not so much into acoustic vocal-guitarist acts, but I dig your voice.

Sadly, you can't.  Myspace lets you stream four songs at a time on your page, but any time you add a new one it replaces one of the old ones.  I'm overdue for a rotation, though, so when I have some spare time I'll try and put some older songs back up for a while.  Thanks for listening to them!

i have this recurrent joke/serious project with a friend of mine about a country band called 'the saddest man in san antonio' . we haven't got our asses to work on it but one day i wrote part of a melancholic song called 'same old fool'.

i want you to use the part i wrote and do something with it and your beautiful voice.

here it is:

gleamin' thru the alleys of redemption and hope
i found myself talking out loud to a picture of god
time had scratched it badly,
same  story with my soul
bartender came to me
said  can i help you, bud
didn't recognize me
hell i was still
the same old fool

same old fool (x100000000)

context, context, context.

That's super badass.  I like that idea very, very much.  I'll see what I can do with it.
