I hope I don't fuck this up...blogging isn't my specialty. I'm a singer/songwriter in Phoenix, AZ. I just put out an EP in November titled "Shutterbug." You can find it wherever you download music. I've decided to keep my theme with my fellow singer/songwriter types. These are some songs I enjoy. Here goes nothing...
1. Rocky Votalato - White Daisy Passing
This video makes me want to get my boots out of the closet.
2. Leonard Cohen- Everybody Knows
This is for anyone who watched Pump Up The Volume to much as a kid.
3. Joel Plaskett - Fashionable People
I am very grateful that Bob Hoag introduced me to this man's music.
4. Elliott Smith - The Biggest Lie
Stinkweeds show from 1997...need I say more.
5. Billy Joel - You May Be Right
Alex already posted my favorite Joel song, but this one is probably more fitting.
6. Leona Naess - Heavy Like Sunday
The women responsible for the "Lee" tattoo on Ryan Adams arm that now reads "Sleep."
7. Ryan Adams - Cracks In A Photograph
Not sure why this is still unreleased considering all the shit songs he's put out.
8. Fiona Apple - Paper Bag
I'm glad she dated P.T. Anderson, because this video is awesome.
9. Tom Petty - You Got Lucky
This was the coolest video when it came out. Yes I'm old.
10. Matt Skiba - Good Fucking Bye
One of my favorite songwriters.
11. The Tallest Man On Earth - The Wild Hunt
Damn Sweads...I wish I could play like this.
12. Tegan and Sara - Call It Off
I love these two...a lot. Such great songs.
Hope you liked at least one of these...for some extra credit here is a video of me from the Phoenix New Times blog. It's called By The Coin Jar:
