I'm working on an eclectic new album and I'm releasing one song at a time. Here are the first two singles:
Balcony TV Nashville
Press in Paducah
My song "Joplin" is about an EF5 tornado that devastated Joplin, Missouri on May 22, 2011. The song was inspired by the story of 24 people who survived the tornado huddled in the beer cooler of a gas station. Listen to the NPR special that inspired the song here.
Here are two different versions of me doing it live.
With the harmonica for NPR's Tiny Desk Contest.
Fort Dakota was recorded in just three days with Josh Morris at Fort Dakota Studios.
The album features just me and the CS024 acoustic guitar. Josh miked my guitar case and I stomped along to fill out the tracks.

A clip of Fort Dakota's "Dancer" from my first Birmingham gig at The Nick. This is the most patriotic I've ever looked. Red, white and blue shirt with an American flag backdrop and a borrowed dread knot acoustic guitar.

"Time To Tell"
We shot this video for Fort Dakota's "Time to Tell" on the roof of The McFerrin House in East Nashville. Thanks to Erik Maynard for risking his life to film this walking backwards!
Boheme's Banana Boat
My brother has a food truck. A food boat actually. Boheme's Banana Boat. The bow of the boat is a performance stage.
Here we are parading the boat through East Nashville. That's me playing Michael Jackson off the front.

"Baby, It's Cold Outside"
Jaclyn Davies spent some time in Nashville in December so we worked up a version of "Baby it's Cold Outside." It was actually pretty nice out that day...
(For the Beliebers)
Back at it again with the brilliant Megan Davies, trying to make acoustic sense of some Justin Beiber.
"Talkin' Memories and Dreams"
Here's some live footage from a summer show at Creekside Pub in my hometown, Springfield, MO.
This song is an original talkin' blues, à la Bob Dylan.
"Gold Digger Mashup"
1 cup Audi Westgate
2 tbs Ray Charles
2 tbs Kanye West
1 tsp The Beatles
The McFerrin Sessions
The McFerrin Sessions was recorded with a band in a single day at the McFerrin House in East Nashville.
Josh Morris engineered the project, which we mixed later at Fort Dakota Studios.
Here's the band from the McFerrin Sessions. Nicholas Swafford on drums, Taylor Jones on bass. Live from the Bongo Java's After Hours Theatre.
