Digging In The Dirt
Digging In The DirtI wrote this in response to Jennifer Tefft's Double Dog Dare Songwriting Challenge. The idea Jennifer suggested for February was "Digging in the dirt". Being a huge Peter Gabriel fan, I immediately thought of his song "Digging In The Dirt". Because I couldn't get that version out of my head, I figured I would just wait to see what Jennifer suggested for March. Then my version spilled out. My pal Scott Haraldsen is playing the bass and the guitars. Your's truly did the rest. Enjoy!
Boston StrongI wrote this song a week after the Boston Marathon bombing to honor those lost and injured. I also wanted to give a musical theme to the "Boston Strong" mantra I kept hearing. Stay strong Boston!
06 The Better Times
06 The Better TimesHere's a live version of "The Better Times" recorded from the board in 2006 at the then Attic in Newton.
01 Old Irish Heart (demo)
01 Old Irish Heart (demo)This is a song I wrote for my Grandpa after he passed away. He was a proud Irishman like his father before him. I usually don't post demo versions of my music, so please excuse the singing, the snare drum playing and the mix!
Ten Years On
Ten Years OnWrote this for my wife for a ten year anniversary present. She cried - mission accomplished! I programmed everything and sang all the vocals. Thanks to my friend Pat Wroge for adding some saxophone ear candy on this one!
Walk In The Sun (cover)
Walk In The Sun (cover)Here's my cover of Bruce Hornsby's "Walk In The Sun". I lovely song about a guy who falls in love with the "dancer" and the strip bar! I had some help from Brett Simmons on drums, Josh Oliver on bass, Joe Feloni on guitar and Pat Wroge on the saxophone. This was tons of fun to put together. I hope you enjoy it! Cheers!
