Recent Tracks

Introducing some songs that I admire from recent albums. Please listen!

Stayed in Love - The whole band was set up in David's living room, with everyone recording live together. Total old-school. This was one of those magic moments of studio collaboration where we all came up with our parts and arranged the song together in a matter of minutes.

House Carpenter - A very old song covered by many artists, most notably Bob Dylan. I didn't want to detract from Boris's intricate guitar and haunting vocal performance so I tried a delicate, orchestral approach to this. I introduced a new sound/part in each verse, slowly building it throughout. This is one of only 2 songs by other artists that I played piano on.

Good to See You - Jeremy wrote this song about the late, great Billy Conway. I think the lyrics beautifully capture Billy's spirit. I took a very simple approach to the drum part, and a 70s-style, muffled, compressed drum sound seemed appropriate.
