room, where it’s about 80% chaos. Guitars, amps, records, books, stuff that doesn’t work anymore “but might be worth something” . . . my version of the man cave/storage unit/writing room, as of now. Been fooling around back here late at night, (not) writing songs, recording some covers very informally (we’re talking cell phone voice memos app) just as a way of practicing, and literally facing the music when playing the recording back. This one kinda stuck out to me, so I thought I would share it with you. You can find it here:

It’s an early song by Muddy Waters . . . sacred ground for me, and I always hesitate to even attempt to cover something he wrote or otherwise recorded, but this was meant for just practice. I’ve had his version in my head a lot lately, so thought I’d tear into it and see what happened. An imperfect rendering, certainly, but, hey, I was feelin’ it. Just thought you might enjoy sticking your head in the door for a few minutes.

I’ll be playing an early show at the 5 Spot here in my neighborhood on Father’s Day, June 19, with my extraordinarily talented friend Ray Bonneville. Hitting the road again in early July–check the tour page for details!
