Annie You Save Me – Song Notes

I discovered this song by UK pop duo Graffiti6 during a random walk through iTunes a few years ago. The original  version of the song is kind of a four-on-the-floor techno dance club track. I loved the energy of the recording and listened to it a lot while driving. I never gave any thought to […]

Oh You Pretty Things Acoustic Video

To me the message of this song is “Make room for the outsiders and the people that are different, because they are here to stay and in fact, we’re all outsiders in some way.” Watch the full video of my cover of David Bowie’s “Oh You Pretty Things” below.

Oh You Pretty Things – Song Notes

I’ve loved David Bowie’s music ever since I discovered the Changesonebowie 8-track in my sisters music collection when I was 9 or 10. But I never really dug into the catalog much beyond the hits. So when Paul Mahern suggested his song “Oh You Pretty Things” for ECHOES, I’m not sure I’d ever even heard it before. […]

The Game – Song Notes

Having been a teenager in the 1980’s, I have a special place in my heart and psyche for that music. Unfortunately, a lot of the production techniques and sounds that were used back then didn’t age well. I heard some Echo and the Bunnymen songs on the radio back then, but I didn’t remember The […]

Paradise – Song Notes

I’ve been playing lead guitar in John Prine‘s band since 1996. That’s 20 years as of this writing. (Yes, I was 3 years old when John hired me. OK, I was 26, but who’s counting.) A year or two ago, I decided to make a record of songs written by other songwriters. The working title of […]

I Am The Cosmos – Song Notes

I’ve always liked the quirkiness of the whole Memphis/Big Star/Alex Chilton/Chris Bell world of songs. I came to the party late, long after they all stopped making music together. But I discovered them in my early twenties, which was perfect timing. When we were making the ECHOES record the producer, Paul Mahern, suggested maybe doing a […]
