Video: Cover Of Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’

Usually when I perform covers, they are more obscure songs or songs that folks haven’t heard in a long time. I went back into the forest and I decided to defy myself:

Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ performed in the forest outside of Seattle with a portable Mackie FreePlay PA. My version is slightly different to Taylor’s, I hope she doesn’t mind.

Enjoy!

Video: ‘Dark End Of The Street’

The great soul singer Percy Sledge died a few weeks ago and I added one of my favourite songs he used to sing to my own set list as a little tribute, ‘Dark End Of The Street’. We recorded a quick version on my iPhone if you want to check it out:

Enjoy!

Video: ‘Christmas Fire’

Here’s a fun little Christmas song I recorded on my phone, enjoy!

Christmas Fire

I’m gonna set the tree on fire
Santa said I’d get my wish, liar
I’m gonna set the tree on fire
Santa said I’d get my wish, he’s a liar

You’re the last one on my list
I can’t decide what to get for you
But the circles on the brochures
You’ve been busy leaving clues

But my stocking will be empty
And you’ll be laughing again
I’ll get rich and pretend not to know you
Will you be laughing then?

I’m gonna set the tree on fire
Santa said I’d get my wish, liar
I’m gonna set the tree on fire
Santa said I’d get my wish, he’s a liar

Can I get a bike or RC car
May I please have a new telescope?
Or a pin-up model at my door
Yeah I’m guilty of too much hope

But if I still hope you’ll come home
Don’t be too surprised
I’ll keep the receipt for your love
It doesn’t seem to work as advertised

I’m gonna set the tree on fire
Santa said I’d get my wish, liar
I’m gonna set the tree on fire
Santa said I’d get my wish, he’s a liar

I’m gonna set the tree on fire
Santa said I’d get my wish, liar
I’m gonna set the tree on fire
Santa said I’d get my wish, he’s a liar

Video: ‘Madman’ Live At The Comet Tavern, Seattle WA

Here’s a video clip of Phil Hirschi (cello) and I performing my song ‘Madman’:

I don’t have a show schedule for today, so a video from a past show is the best you’ll be able to get from me, enjoy!

Best,

SJ
