MONEY (PINK FLOYD COVER)
My cover of "Money" with Rick Vandivier on guitar and Celso Alberty on drums. This was recorded on an iPad by an audience member at Angelicas in Redwood City, CA on January 17, 2015
BOTH A BLESSING AND A CURSE (SOLO BASS/VOICE)
A solo performance of "Both a Blessing and a Curse" with just my 100 year old upright bass, Sarah,
at one of my favorite NYC clubs, The Bitter End.
SO Many Reasons
This is an older performance of "So Many Reasons" from the Rocheforte en Accords Festival in France back in 2006. Paul Tiernan and I met at this festival and have been touring together ever since. Austin singer-songwriter Darden Smith is also sitting in with us on this one.
WHAT CAN NEVER BE
Here's an all acoustic version of "What Can Never Be" by Paul recorded on my GoPro at Cypress Meadows House Concert Series in Moss Beach, California on April 11, 2014. I love the way the lights cast each of our shadows in color and behind Paul, the sun is setting over the hill at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve.
