Singers, songwriters, bulldykers...
Scratch that last word...injoke central. A few good friends of mine fit into the singer/songwriter "genre," so I figured I'd post a few tracks of theirs to get the blog ball rolling again. The first batch is from a guy who will not allow me to post these songs under his real name. He goes by the name "Atlas Mason," and though he will probably punch me for saying it, he write from the Tom Waits bag (but with an expanded harmonic sense.) I played with Atlas on some of the other files available for download here...can you guess who it is? Go for it>>>>> Atlas Mason sampler
...and then there is Daniel Clay: former high school mate of Bimbi "Smoofus" Garreaux, theologian, boat builder, furniture designer, incredible guitarist etc. I am usually not a fan of the singer/songwriter thing but Daniel's stuff really draws me in and also...the lyrics are married to the music. Nothing's forced. You'll love it. Here are a few tacks from his new cd "The Protestant." Look for it at the usual places.

I keep saying it, but I have much more to post and I broke the 2000 download milestone a long time ago so some surprises are in the works. beedeebeedeebeedee.
