Happy Spring, New England!
Flowers, long days, and warm weather! Its finally here! To celebrate the long-awaited arrival of spring, I am offering two free downloads. Click here to open the download page.
The first is a brand new recording of an original song called, "In The Spring". On this track you will hear me sing, play guitar, and ocarina - a flute made out of clay invented by the Mayan Indians! I am excited to be working with Chris Rival at his Middleville studio where such greats as Paula Cole, Anand Nayak, Lori McKenna and Mark Erelli record! We recorded this live with no electronic effects, although it did require a little multi-tracking, because I don't have enough hands to play ocarina and guitar at the same time!
The second is a recording of a traditional Irish tune called "The Rattlin' Bog" that I recorded with my friend Ranko Stevanovic on accordion and background vocals. This is on my Pigs Dance, Fairies Sing & Other Wondrous Things CD. Try adding hand motions to the verse and dancing around wildly while you sing along with the chorus.
