I don't often get the house to myself (which is really wearing thin), so I've jumped on the few opportunities I've had recently to do a little recording, even if they're just covers. The first one is called Sittin' On Top of the World, a folk-blues song written by Walter Vinson and Lonnie Chatmon of the 1930's band, The Mississippi Sheiks. My idol, Jack White also covered it and did a playful version in It Might Get Loud. I did the song a cappella and tried to express as much soul as I could. It isn't perfect, but it felt really good to sing.
The second tune I've recently covered is Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground by who else? It was a White Stripes karaoke backing I happened to get a hold of by chance, so I definitely had to cover it! I actually ripped this one out before work a couple of days ago. It felt good, but I admit it will feel better once I get a few more originals out there.
My recordings can of course be listened to on the playlist to your right, or through my Music page.
