Totally Awesome Kid’s Song

Totally-Awesome-Song-cvr

It’s time to release another kid’s song!!  This one is very silly of course and features my whole family.  Adair Cates is singing the chorus and my twin three year olds make a cameo as well.  Chris Singleton is holding down the bass duties as usual and I’m playing everything else.

Adair reminded me of the Awesome cheerleading cheer one day and it became a song.  I was a bit inspired by the old Faith No More song “Be Aggressive” which employs an old cheer as well.

A video will be forthcoming whenever I get around to filming it.

Thanks for listening!

A New Sport for Prime Time

The next song off of ‘Risky Biscuits’ used to be our most popular live song in the Athens era Parakeet Nelson heyday.   It’s also my Dad’s favorite song by that band!   This was recorded live and features incredible solos by John Wayne Tuggle, Gary Hartle, Mike Elam, me (harmonica) and John Kell.   Thanks for listening!

3 Putt King (acoustic version)

Here’s the acoustic version of “3 Putt King” which seemed to be the most popular song on my first golf album Triple Bogey with 17 Holes to Play.   However, this is the acoustic version from my new golf album Funny Golf Songs.  If you’d like to hear it with guitar solos, Chris Singleton’s brilliant bass and Jared Callahan’s rocking drums feel free to dig up the original version too!  Thanks for listening.

It’s All Relative, But it’s Relative to What? (song of the day)

  lyrics

I haven’t posted a song in a while.  Life and work tends to get in the way sometimes.   My friend and talented songwriter in his own right, Jake Rathburn, reminded me of this song the other day.   And of the vastly cerebral lines (sic)  “Things are not opposite in China as they are here,  the gravity is still the same except for the gravity in the beer”.   Deep stuff I know.    Thanks for listening!

Egg Sandwich (version two) Song of the day

I’ll keep it super old school again today.  This one was recorded in Jeramy’s trailor in Swannanoa maybe in 1994?  John Crowe is also involved and if you listen closely you can hear my Dad overdubbed in the background.  My Mom has been trying to get me to revive this song for a long time.  Thanks for listening!

Making a Living Making Music (song of the day)

lyrics

Two people called me about booking gigs one after another today.   You gotta love when that happens.  Slowly but surely I’m getting back into the music scene down here in Atlanta.  Today’s song is a tongue in cheek ditty about being a musician for hire.  Thanks for listening!

I Need Children to Feed to my Alien

Today’s song from the ‘Risky Biscuits’ album marks one of the funnest times in my life collaborating with a ton of musicians and friends in Athens.  When this song was recorded, I played guitar for the first time in six months (with help from a physical therapy tool).  I had severely broken my arm on a four wheeler and had to cancel more than 40 gigs.

Anyway this song was recorded live in the studio with a huge band.  Seth Hendershot on drums, Jesse Cole on bass, John Wayne Tuggle on lead guitar (1st solo), Daniel Marler on lead guitar (2nd solo), Gary Hartle on tenor sax, John Kell on alto sax and Mike Elam on trumpet.

Oh did I mention this was done in one take!  Thanks for listening!
