Happy Spring! And Tiny Desk Contest

Happy Spring to all my northern hemisphere friends! It seems like Spring has started right on time here in the Pacific Northwest, the flowers are blooming gorgeously.

Also, NPR is having a Tiny Desk Contest for artists to submit to get featured on their Tiny Desk Concert series, so Phil and I snuck into the Oval Office to record a live version of ‘Madman’ for submission:

Security at the White House is super lax these days, just tell them you’re Russian and they let you right in.

Enjoy!

White Hoods In The White House – Video

I recorded a new video, a solo acoustic performance of ‘White Hoods In The White House’. It is very inspiring to see so many people across the USA standing up for what’s right and resisting the current occupants of the White House.

“If you need us we’ll be out in the street, marching for our children, it won’t be on TV…”

Stay strong!

Sunset Slideshow (and Mexico demo)

I put together a slideshow of sunset photos taken from my phone, and put a recording of ‘Mexico’ as the backing track, enjoy!

Best,

SJ

Elvis Costello Fiona Apple ‘I Want You’

I’ve posted this video before, a few years ago, but this version of ‘I Want You’ by Fiona Apple singing and Elvis Costello on guitar is so good I have to post it again:

Elvis’ guitar backing on this is incredibly tasty.

Enjoy!

Happy New Year!

Hi. I just wanted to say Happy New Year! I’m glad you’re still here with us hurtling around the Sun on one of the coolest planets around. What are you planning for 2016? Whatever it is, I hope you’re healthy and happy and we hope to see you at a show soon!

One of my resolutions is to keep up with Instagram and Twitter and YouTube a little more actively, so keep in touch with us there too.

All the best,

SJ
