Here’s another little #beachmusic diddy to celebrate Dad’s birthday week. This is the last song on my #CarolinaSongs album and is about the band playing the last song of the night at the bar. Thanks for listening!
In lieu of my Dad’s birthday yesterday, I thought I’d post one of my #shag songs I wrote about him. In this tune, I tried to simulate the 50’s style blues beat that he loves to dance to. “Old rubber legs Jim is on the loose again”. “Beach Beat” is one of several #beachmusic songs featuring Chris Singleton, Jason Peeler and John Kell on my #CarolinaSongs album.
Happy Friday. It feels like a good day to listen to “Carolina Wind”. I hope you have a great weekend!
As the hurricane rolls in, today’s song is fitting, I was originally gonna post it as an end of summer song. One of my favorite recordings (because of the classical and electric guitar parts), Outer Banks is a very old song. I wrote it my freshman year at Appalachian and then re-wrote it for the Carolina Songs album.
It features the MasterPlan, Jason Peeler, Chris Singleton and John Kell and perfectly reflects the conflict of leaving everything behind to move to a quiet place at the beach. Something all of us working folk can relate to.
