Hello, good people!
You might have heard about the NPR Tiny Desk Concerts, and the Tiny Desk Contest that NPR is running. I’m a big fan of the concerts, being a fan of intimate musical performances in general. Here’s my entry, humbly submitted to the eminently qualified panel of judges, and performed in front of my very own tiny desk one rainy Portland night (last night, to be precise):
Lilac Time is a song that came about as a sort of homage to Nick Drake. I sat down one day with every intention of learning ‘River Man’, but instead, this song came to me. I still haven’t learned River Man. Oh well.
The fully arranged version of Lilac Time is on my new EP, Shadows & Sparks. It’s not out until February 3rd, but you can stream the first two songs and pre-order a digital copy or CD here.
