Final Cut Pro X

Billy Gray.

[youtube] After yesterday's post, a lot of people wrote me with suggestions about how to get my voice back. Thank you guys for that. I tried them all, and while I can't seem to sing yet, it meant you cared, which is a lot. Thank you.

Assuming I sort this out shortly, I'm playing a show in Nashville May 4 at the Basement with my talented friend Kristin Andreassen. If you live in town, you can get tickets here. A

Anyway before I left to record this record, Kristin and I made a video of our favorite Norman Blake song, Billy Gray. It's one of the greatest outlaw ballads of all time! Enjoy, and if you live in Nashville, we hope to see you Wednesday at the Basement West!


Geordie. Day Two. What to Do in Denver while you Drink Coffee

Tomorrow I'll be home in Idaho, but today I woke up early and edited this video my roommate and me shot in front of my house in East Nashville. It was the last thing I did before I left town...I'm zeroing in on the kind of sound I'm going for with my new record and this is getting close.

"Geordie" is an old English Ballad I learned from an album called Child Ballads by my friends Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hamer. Beautiful song, sad song. People used to tell the most amazing stories...
