I wrote this song in early August and recorded it with my cousin when I was up in Mass. It’s one of a few “quilt songs” I’ve written, where I have song scraps that I like that didn’t work out in other songs that I sew together in a song. This version is a little rough, so I debated whether or not to put it up here. But I just can’t stop listening to it, and I hope you like it too.

I just realized I didn’t have this on here!

This is a song I wrote for my 9th grade chemistry project (modified ever so slightly since). Our task was to personify an element. The original version has my mom singing (I had a cold) — I’m not sure what happened to that but when I find it I’ll post it.

Oh golly gee, we just finished up the cd today and I can’t stop smiling!

Josh Starmer, a local cellist, came and put some cello on one of the songs today. By day, Josh works as a scientist studying genetics and fighting cancer, and by nights and weekends he uses his superpowers of mad cello playing for the forces of good. I’m unreasonably impressed. Or maybe I’m plain reasonably impressed.

Here’s the song he laid down today. To whet your appetite for the new cd:
