For the A-side “Shatter” I did lead vocals and co-wrote (I wrote the part that I sang, basically), and played an iPad instrument called SoundPrism. For the B-side “Badlands” I contributed vocals, but didn’t play and didn’t help to write it, FWIW
This is the (hopefully) full list of *every* record I’ve been involved with. See the category links to narrow it down to just my own records, appearances on compilations, or guest appearances on other people’s records.
I sang lead on one song (“Songs from a Hotel Bar”) and did backups / extra vocals on two others (“Sugar Waltz” and “You’ve Been Letting Go”).
Watch the video for “Sugar Waltz” on YouTube… I sing, but I’m not in the video. But’s it’s a great video. :-)
My demo version of
Walk on the Fire got included on a Mundane Sounds MP3 sampler called I’ve Changed My Ways: The Mundane Sounds New Music Sampler, Volume Four. The MP3s will be available for a limited time, so download ’em while you can! My song, however, is the same version that will always be freely downloadable on my Comfort Stand Demos album.
A very limited edition 180-gsm 12" EP featuring 5 alternate vocal versions of songs that appeared on Sixteen Haiku & Other Stories. I’m doing vocals on Haiku 11 this time, alongside other contributions by Mark Mulcahy, Carla Torgerson and James William Hindle.
I did vocals on the track “Haiku 8″. I also sang on “Haiku 1″ which is included on the limited edition bonus disc. Also, my version of “Haiku 4″ is included in the #13 issue of Comes With A Smile magazine (more info). AND, there’s a limited edition 12″ single with yet another track of mine! :-)
Other featured singers include Robert Wyatt, Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab), Alejandro Escovedo, Mark Eitzel, Cat Power, Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), Howe Gelb (Giant Sand), Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate) and many, many more…
Each song has a different guest singer. I sang backups for Sally Timms on the song "Long Black Veil".
I sang backups (along with Nora O’Connor) on Kelly Hogan‘s offering, "Why Me". Other artists include John Doe, Tom Verlaine, Chuck Prophet, Polara, Mark Kozelek, Jon Langford, the Mother Hips, Paul Burch, and Stephen Bruton.
Jon Langford and the gang consign songs of murder, mob law, and cruel, cruel punishment to the realm of myth, memory and history. All artists’ proceeds go to the Illinois Death Penalty Moratorium Project.
