The Edgewise March

The Edgewise March

OK…. I recorded this tonight… I decided to call it a “march” (like the game over march) everyone should try marching to it. I play it a little easier and less eleborate live but it sounds similar drums, harmomnica guitar vocals.

I haven’t recorded or posted this song yet… but I’m going to do it after work today.  It’s going to be good… possibly the best yet.  In it I will play Guitar, drums and Harmonica all simultaneously (I played this live at the Shadow lounge a few weeks ago and it worked well)  It’ll be up this evening sometime.

Cutter

This song is about some really screwed up stuff. Listen to it and you can probably figure it out. It was recorded last fall. I am running out of old songs to post… I’m done with School tomorrow… I’ll have something new and awesome posted on thursday.

Rearview

Rearview

This is yet another song that I recorded about a year ago… but I’ve been too busy. I’ll get something new up sooner or later. School is wrapping up and I got a free summer coming up… meaning that all I have to do is work a 40 hour week and the rest of the time (minus Gwen time) can be for recording. I love the feeling of freedom that creeps up on a person, it’s like basejumping all of a sudden there is a big huge lack of structure beneath your feet and you can fly all over the place. For me this starts on monday night.

Westbound

Westbound

This is a Bluesy song I wrote around two years ago. The instrument that I’m playing is a mountain dulcimer strung with electric guitar strings. This documents my life from College to Wyoming to Pittsburgh. There is harmonica and Keyboard too.

I decided recently that I’m going to record the Von Brunswick album this June. I’ll be posting the songs as I go… and there will hopefully be a “Von Brunswick page” with illustrations of the stories. (Von Brunswick is the prussian peasant who thinks he should be king and he is the subject of a concept album that I’m writing that will sound nothing like this song that I posted today… I outgrew the blues) Peace

Where we stay is where we go is where we stay is where we go.

Where we stay is where we go is where we stay is where we go.

I did this song about a year ago, I’ve been too busy lately to record and write a new song… but I like this song. It has to do with all sorts of themes including traveling and open mindedness. I’m home for easter and have been away on business all week… I have finals next week. I’m gonna keep on putting up old songs. (Old songs which nobody but myself has heard)

Hurt By The Words

Hurt By The Words

This song is for people like me who get hurt by the words that they hear nobody say. Listen to the lyrics they may be comforting.

In this song I play accordion, drums, guitar and harmonica

Gone Into The City

Gone Into The City

I recorded this song in about 45 minutes on Saturday. Every track is one take… Meaning that I wasn’t messing around with perfection. There are 7 tracks, including Adrew’s harmonica Solo… even that was recorded in one take. The song has some sort of biblical urban exodus theme… I dunno, Listen to it.

Andrew Whalen: Harmonica

Brad Wray: Guitar, Vocals, Drums
