Nice Day for A White Wedding

On my Facebook page I asked people to post a wedding song -- their own or someone else's -- and here are the results, starting with my own.

Early Rumblings, Part 2: Two More Rough Tracks

Some more early versions of the songs that will make up the Abandoned and Heartbroke  album. You can listen to two other songs here.

I have a dream of making some LPs out of this. An actual record album would be fun to have and a blast to design.

Pay no attention to most of the lyrics on "These Times". They were meant only as a placeholder for finished lyrics, which still have not been decided upon, but in the meantime some of them make me cringe. I do hear a sweeping epic of a song in the making, at least instrumentally.

Early Rumblings: Two Rough Tracks

The description of this blog includes the phrase "chronicling the creation of an album of original songs, by a guy who figures he might as well", and after a long hiatus we finally have the opportunity to do some serious chroniclin'. Drum tracks have been added to all five songs, courtesy of the great Drake Sorey, drummer for the splendid rockabilly group The Highballers and a gifted photographer to boot. This is a terrific breakthrough for the album, because now we can move forward on the songs.

For now, here are the rough tracks for what I consider to be the standout songs so far. More to come.
