Intro & Song #1

The premise is simple: One musician, one song per week. I write them. I record them. I post them up here for you to listen to. Love it or hate it, feel free to leave me a comment. If commenting is not your thing, there is a poll on the left. Or just do nothing. It's ok.

This first song was just finished last night. Its called The Easy Way Out. When I sat down to write it, I had just gone through a semi-severe obsession with The Left Banke song Walk Away Renee. I love that song for it's simplicity, yet it's imagery is so perfectly haunting.
The chorus for this song came as I was waiting in line for a coffee. It just popped in my head, melody and all. It seemed really universal. I scribbled it on a napkin so that I wouldn't forget it, and then stayed inside on a perfectly sunny day to work it out.

Push play...
