New song. Live at my desk in Mariposa.
This live performance of ‘Lipstick Fables’ is my entry for the 2021 NPR Music Tiny Desk contest. Every year, NPR Music ask unsigned artists to send recordings of their original songs, performed at a desk. The entries are then reviewed by a panel of judges and a winner chosen to go and perform at NPR Music headquarters in New York. They also share standout entries on their blog, in mashup videos and on social media. I had a lot of fun putting this video together. I hope you enjoy it.
Today, I’m sharing a new video for ‘I’m Not Ready For Suburbia’ on YouTube. My partner Alex and I had a lot of fun making it and we hope you enjoy it.
‘I’m Not Ready for Suburbia’ is from the album ‘Exhibitions of the Malcontent’, which is available for download through Bandcamp with ‘pay-what-you-want’ pricing. Today, July 3rd, Bandcamp is waiving their revenue share (they usually take 10-15%) on music downloads from hundreds of thousands of artists around the world, including me. The coronavirus outbreak has had a serious impact on performing artists’ income so we are very grateful to be able to sell our music online without fees.
If you prefer something you can hold, visit my ‘Music‘ page to order a CD with free shipping.
I hope you enjoy the video. See you soon.
‘Exhibitions of the Malcontent’ was made in my basement in Mariposa, California. This music was inspired by the restless and the observant, the agitators and the mischief-makers, the day-dreamers and the night-thinkers. I wrote the songs, played the instruments, recorded, mixed, mastered, made tapes and stuck the labels on.
I hope you enjoy the album. See you soon.
