Songfight Victory! Plus new(ish) songs!
Last week's Songfight dual-collaboration between Ross Durand and me has proven quite fruitful indeed, as Ross' version of my "False Positive" took first place in the fight! Congratulations to Ross for doing an excellent recording from my rough demo, and thank you
to anyone who voted for it. My version of his song got 7 votes.
Rather than competing in this week's Songfight, I've been keeping myself busy revisiting some old tracks for a demo. This demo will double as an audition (for what, I won't yet say) and as an EP, for your listening pleasure. To that end, I've rerecorded my 2006 Songfight entry "Rhymes with Lucia,"
and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed remaking it.
In other news, way back in 2005, shortly after Hurricane Katrina struck my home in New Orleans (thankfully, I wasn't there at the time), I started a song. I played it solo on acoustic guitar a lot around campus, and most people seemed to like it, but it took me forever to figure out how to expand it into a full band arrangement. Only just now, in June 2009, have I completed it. It's called "Phantom,"
and though it's not as peppy-sounding as most of what you'll find here, I do hope you'll give it a listen and tell me what you think.
Over and Out,
