I've shared the first four tracks off my upcoming LP, Need Something over on bandlab. Six more songs on the books I'll be finishing in the next couple months. Maybe sooner, ya never really know. Probably a couple months. Gonna be a good one. I'm thrilled. https://www.bandlab.com/embed/collection/?id=f15af701-87a3-eb11-85aa-0004ffd345df
I'm back at the ole cover song game. This one is The Tallest Man On Earth's 'Like a Wheel' off his 2010 EP, Sometimes the Blues Is Just a Passing Bird
