Moving Slowly – Hotel Utah Open Mic

I don’t think I’ve ever shared this song short of a few open mics. This was recorded recently at the Hotel Utah’s awesome open mic on January 7th 2013. (It really did take me 3 months to finish this post!)

Michael Beese was kind enough to improvise over it for me on his vio-fiddle thing.

New song: Said and Done

It’s taken me some time to get around to making a recording of this – especially one that I didn’t screw up! I’m never happy with my recordings but I’m getting better with it. This song was written for an optional assignment for a songwriter group I attend – to write a waltz. I’m still not entirely sure about the arrangement in the end and I’m liking playing around with timing in certain parts for accents. Anyway, I hope you enjoy. I’ll record it again soon and hopefully even better!

PS – I’m going to make all the older videos private once I record new versions. I’ve only been writing songs and singing for around 3 years now and I think I’ve definitely improved and newer recordings would surely represent my work much better. I also need to hook up a better microphone – soon!
