My interpretation of "Because" by the Beatles, winter break, bedhead, etc. spontaneous pandemic recording
This is a Beatles song that I covered in November 2019 when my dear friend Mark was passing from this world. I learned it in dedication to him, and will remember him always every time I play it (and every day).
Here is me playing a piano piece that I wrote sometime between 2005-2008. (This actual video performance is from July 2020). This song is a theme that I vary every time I play it, so this is just that day's version. Thanks for listening!
And, see more of my performance videos below!
This is a song I wrote many years ago (2004?) with my bass player friend Kyle. It was originally a full-on electronica song. In 2016, I asked my friend James to back me up for a house concert, and it turned into this cool electric guitar and beatbox version which I love! This is a recording of the song at one of our rehearsals for the show.
This was my first official music video, directed and shot by Jason Lange, audio recorded by Ryan Oelke. Song written, sung and played by me (all music and lyrics).
This is a song that I co-wrote with my friend John Joe (the pianist in the recording, also the person who recorded it and added in drum track) in Ireland back in 2001. I love this song and want to put it out there again!
This short video is when I had only written the chorus for "The Joy is Back" and a very simple piano part. In many ways, this is the essence of the song and I prefer it to the finished product.
This is another track that I wrote with John Joe about 5 years later when I returned to Ireland. This song is about how alcohol can steal our loved ones from us.
This is a video I made at home in 2010 in my studio apartment, doing my best to cover one of my favorite Bjork songs.
This is me singing the lead on a breakup song that my friend Chuck Potashner wrote years ago, during a few lucky years where I got to perform out with Chuck and Anthea (left) in multiple Denver venues, including the great Oriental Theater.
