New York, New York – Ryan Adams Cover

So last night I was at rehearsal for the Seattle-based band I’ve been playing in, The Last Great Love (stream their music here, follow them on Twitter here, become a Facebook fan here). I got into a conversation with Brooke, one of our other guitarists, on our favorite songwriters. We both agreed that Ryan Adams is simply the greatest. In honor of his amazing work, here’s a cover of his song “New York, New York” from the brilliant album Gold. These are some of my favorite lyrics of all time, check them out here.

Reel Karma – Rivers and Roads

Well a bunch of the ol’ karma crew, groupies and all, came to Seattle this past week and we’ve got some video treats coming your way! As a tribute to sunny sunny Seattle, we decided to do a cover of The Head and the Heart’s “Rivers and Roads.” Enjoy!

Hoodoos – Give In

Presenting the second installment of the Incredible, Delicate Hoodoos project. What happens when the Hoodoo shaman casts a love spell between the stud-liest cliff spirit and the daughter of tyrannical Captain Benjamin Jones, a mere human girl? Well, I suppose we get the answer to an age-old question: is this love or is it sin?



To kick off this week, I present to you my most recent tune, “Marylyn.” I’ve been working in the studio on this song for a few weeks now: it is a folk-ballad, harmony-laden track in the vain of Dawes and Ryan Adams. Here’s the deconstructed, live version.
