I haven’t played in a band since 1997, but just recently started some long-distance collaboration with a bandmate from Totem Soul, the group I moved to Portland with back in 1989.
Jay Harden has been keeping himself busy performing and recording, and asked me to add some tracks to some stuff he recorded.
I started with “Get Along,” which features Naomi Wedman on violin and vocals. I threw in some bass and drums.
Then there’s “Sleepy Head,” which has a nice country blues feel. I threw down some bass and drums again, and thought about some backing vox. But couldn’t find a harmony I liked, so left it simple.
Now, if we’re lucky, Jay will make us a couple cheap-o videos.
