Weekly Acoustic Podcast Episode 11 – “Alone” and “Love Song”

March 26th, 2010

This week’s podcast consists of 2 similar songs — “Alone,” from my Triad album (which is one of my favorite songs lyrically because it reads like a poem), and “Love Song,” a cover of the song by my friend Phil Taylor.

Weekly Acoustic Podcast Episode 10 – “All Along The Watchtower” and “Pieces”

March 19th, 2010

This week’s podcast consists of the great “All Along The Watchtower” by Bob Dylan, immortalized by Jimi Hendrix, and “Pieces,” one of my favorite tracks from my Two Sides Of The Same Soul album.  I sing Watchtower with my band, so this is an acoustic take on it.

Weekly Acoustic Podcast Episode 8 – “Careless Whisper”

March 5th, 2010

This week I chose to do “Careless Whisper” — a great song originally by George Michael that Seether was able to completely take to the next level.  I sing this with Town Crier, so it was a natural choice.

Weekly Acoustic Podcast Episode 7 – “Lightning Crashes” and “The Thirst”

February 26th, 2010

This week’s podcast is another two-parter. The first song is “Lightning Crashes,” a great song by [wiki]Live[/wiki] who I first heard live when I was in college in 1997 or 1998. I sing the song with Town Crier.  This recording was made before I really “moved in” to the song, so there are some variations that I no longer do.

The second song is “The Thirst” from my album The Threshold of Omniscience.  I originally chose the song as a podcast right after I wrote it.  I liked it so much, I just had to share.  It too, has evolved somewhat.

As usual, these songs were recorded by just me and my acoustic guitar in my studio on my Sony ICD-SX700 Voice Recorder.

Weekly Acoustic Podcast: Episode 6 – “Irrational”

February 19th, 2010

This week’s song is “Irrational” from my Two Sides Of The Same Soul album.  This is a pretty dramatically introspective song (go figure) with a general free form, and it’s one of my wife’s favorites.  🙂

Weekly Acoustic Podcast: Episode 5 – “Mr. Jones” and “Bedroom Of The Sun”

February 12th, 2010

This week’s songs are “[wiki]Mr. Jones[/wiki]” (originally by the [wiki]Counting Crows[/wiki]), and “Bedroom of the Sun” by Me (on my album Triad).

The reason there are two songs this week is I decided to start doing one cover and one original each week.  I chose to do “Mr. Jones” because I sing it with Town Crier (it’s the last song in our first set), and “Bedroom Of The Sun” is just one of my favorites (it was also requested).

As usual, this is just me on my acoustic guitar, recorded at home in my studio on my Sony ICD-SX700 voice recorder.

Weekly Acoustic Podcast: Episode 4 – “Dixieland”

February 5th, 2010

This week’s song is a great one by Steve Earle — inspired at least partially by [wiki]The Killer Angels[/wiki] by [wiki]Michael Shaara[/wiki]. It’s a great song sung by Irish immigrant [wiki]Buster Kilrain[/wiki] during the Civil War.

Recorded as just me and my acoustic in my studio on my Sony ICD-SX700 voice recorder.

Weekly Acoustic Podcast: Episode 3 – “Remedy”

January 29th, 2010

This week’s podcast is “Remedy” — the song that brought the-awesomeness-that-is-Seether into my life. The song rocks, and I sing it with Town Crier.

Recorded as just me and my acoustic in my studio on my Sony ICD-SX700 voice recorder.

Weekly Acoustic Podcast: Episode 2 – “Country Roads”

January 22nd, 2010

This week’s song is “Country Roads,” originally performed by John Denver (of course). I did a demonstration about music recording to some students at my old school in Sept. 09, and I thought it would be a good choice for a podcast.

As usual, this recording is a simple live version done on a Sony ICD-SX700 Voice Recorder.
