A quick note here: “Jingle Bell Jezebel” is now available for your holiday listening pleasure via stream or download at my bandcamp page. Download it for a dollar; 50% of all proceeds from sales of this track will go to a local community outreach organization here in east Nashville called Give Me 10. Even if you are a sponsor of the new record and have downloaded it for free on the exclusive sponsor page, you can “gift” the track to folks on your not-too-naughty list via the bandcamp site.
The song was the last thing we recorded during the “electric” sessions for the new record–it’s always a pleasure to record with Paul Griffith, Ron Eoff, and Joe McMahan, and we were ready to blow off some steam and celebrate with this one . . . yes, there’s probably a little bourbon in the mix. I wrote the song as a kind of challenge to myself–I’d had the title for a while . . . just decided to sit down toward the end of a break and make it happen! Shakespeare it ain’t, but it was never intended to be. Just four guys who’ve played together for almost 20 years, throwin’ down at the end of a good full day. Hope you dig it.
Happy Wednesday–sponsors, you can download the track “Jingle Bell Jezebel” for free on the exclusive sponsor page; plus, you now have your choice of two different file formats!–.m4a(smaller file, native to iTunes), or .wav(larger file, best quality, compatible w/iTunes or other players). The track will soon be available to everyone for streaming and purchase elsewhere . . . stay tuned.
Looking forward to playing Grayton Beach, FL this Saturday with Amy McCarley–“Florida”, “December” . . . those two work together pretty well for me.
I just finished reading “All the Light We Cannot See”, a great novel, set mainly in northern France during World War II, by Anthony Doerr. Now starting Rick Bragg‘s new biography of Jerry Lee Lewis–these are both books that I feel lucky to be in the presence of–
Two weeks til Christmas Eve! Ack!
