One of my new years resolutions is to record more youtube covers. It is a fun thing to do and quite a few folks seem to find my music after stumbling upon me singing other peoples songs.
To kick things off, here is a nocturnal cover of ’81 by Joanna Newsom shot in my little house boat:
Ron has put together an ‘albums of the year’ post on his blog.
Am pretty flattered to have come first – must go and have a listen to some of the competition now!
I have been having email banter with a lovely fella called Ron over in the states for quite a few years now. He has reviewed my music and generally been very encouraging in the nicest sort of way.
He is putting together a book and cd which I am part of called ‘
Children Of Mercy: Tales From The World Of Independent Music‘ to raise some money for charity and give people an insight into the lives of people working in the independent music world.
Unfortunately all of my house and studio moving recently meant that I have not able to pen my definitive thoughts on the topic but I did get the finished version of ‘Mariam’s Cake’ over to him in time to make it onto the cd, where I am sure it will be in great company.
He has set up a kickstarter page with more information about the project and as a place where people can contribute seed funds to get things moving… do have a look –
