Unless I Could Change a Few Things

I’ve been reliving a lot of old memories from my last stint in Georgia (’98-’04) since I’ve been back down there.   I spent my 20’s in Athens learning to run a business and learning to survive with a touring band (or almost survive).  One thing hasn’t changed.  I’ve still got a lot of really good friends there and they’ve been helping me out this time around in a big way.  Cheers to them!   This song is about those old days.

 

October 13th “Winter’s Coming Back Again”

Today is supposed to be a little cooler so I figured I’d post this one.   It’s about feeling Fall for the first time.   I wrote a song that started like this, sophomore year at Appalachian State in Cone dorm, but I have no idea where it went from there.  I’m sure I have a TDK with the 8-track Tascam version of that song somewhere.   This version turned out pretty good.   I captured my whole Neil Young and the Bluenotes tone that I used to love so much around that time.  Thanks for listening!

 

Jan. 4th Song “Soul Bread”

It’s getting a little tougher now. I got up this morning around 6 drove the 50 miles to Morganton and picked up recycling for around 85 places with Dad. It was 17 degrees this morning but it really didn’t seem to bad. I think I have more trouble when the temperatures are in the 40’s than the teens.
It must be those four years I spent in Boone.
Today’s song reflects nothing of what I have experienced today, it’s just what came out between 6:30 and 7:00pm, my alloted time to write tonight.  I’m still sticking with my ‘first thought best thought stategy’.
“Soul Bread” is a story song that’s a bit tragic and a bit humorous with a little secret ‘Belle and Sebastion’ jam at the end.
Thanks for listening.
