Couch By Couchwest 2015

It's Couch By Couchwest time again.

Here's my submission for the online alternative to South By Southwest. Now in its fifth year, Couch By Couchwest attracts everyone from folks who've never played outside the home to touring musicians to, yes, the occasional star.

I was got a heck of a surprise last week when I learned from Erin Friedman, a Shasta County resident and awesome songwriter, that my video from last year had been named as one of the ten most popular for CXCW 2014.

I was planning to do an original tune this year, but I rediscovered a tune from a friend, Redding singer-songwriter Jonathan Foster. Jonathan is also an  an awesome songwriter, and this song grabbed me by the throat and didn't let go a few days ago.

I hope you enjoy it. It was recorded in the Johnson family bathtub, where the acoustics tend to be better than other places around the house.

Here's the link to my video on Couch By Couchwest.

Liked the song a lot, Hal. Acoustics were not bad in the shower.

Time to write on!
