Update #34

Hi again!

Hi,

It has been a while.  The world turns and songs get made.  I never know how much else to share.  

 While part one followed my grandmother's death, this one follows the passing of my friend and long-time collaborator Brian Torrey Scott.  Pretty Girls Don't Just Talk to Me (the next album coming to you), features two songs we wrote together.

I'm uploading here a quick montage of all of the songs for fun...   Can't wait to send you the whole thing.  

Talk soon.

Jeff


Update #33

Daytrotter Songs and Part II

Comment

Hi,

Autumn is here.  I'm recording the remaining drums for Pretty Girls Don't Just Talk to Me next week, which will finish the ground-floor of Part II.

The other vocals and overdubs will take some time to complete, but I'm hoping to finish by X-mas.

Meanwhile! We drove out to Rock Island and recorded a live set at Daytrotter.  It's a great fully decked-out studio, across the river from Davenport, Iowa.  A long crazy eclectic list of people have played there; Billy Bragg, Carly Simon, Bill Callahan, Kris Kristoferson, Iron and Wine, Wilco, Bon Iver, The Cairo Gang...and us.  Here’s Dorsal Fin from our set (click the play button below):   Dan Mohr: Keys     Charles Rumback: Drums       Sam Wagster: Bass 

You can listen to the rest of our day at daytrotter.com or subscribe to Daytrotter to listen to all those other great sets., Super cheap, super worth it.

Hope you are well,

Jeff

Update #32

Original Demos

Comment

Hi there,

I am writing because I am sending out the original demos of the first album to those who purchased that option ..what feels like forever-a-go.

And I am writing to let everyone else know, that if you'd like to have this album of demos, you can buy it through jeffharms.bandcamp.com.   Just buy the regular He Said She Said That's What She Said, and I will email you the download to the demo songs.

I love demos.

Here's the first song... (below)

Update #31

re-mastered

Comment

Normally it takes a centennial or going platinum to remaster a record...  But that's just what I've done.   There were some uploading artifacts... goofs, etc.   It's the same link, but new files:

http://www.jeffharms.net/kick.htm

I encourage you download the album again.   I know that's not realistic in this day and age.  Remember when we used to have to ride our bikes five miles to get music?  Stop at the White Hen, get a pizza bagel. Those were the days. 

I'm off to Michigan in a week to record Part 2.  Someone has given me a little house to look after by the Warren Dunes.  I'm hoping it gets... experimental.   Talk to you when I get back.  If your are in 3 Oaks drop me a line!

All the best,

Jeff

Album Link

Comment

www.jeffharms.net/kick.htm

Above is a newer link to the album.  I don't like that you have to enter your name and stuff on the other link.  And this one definitely works with itunes etc, if you've had trouble.     Again, I will leave this and the other link up till August 1st.

Best,

Jeff
