Junior Chills – On The Lonesome Road (original album)
With the onset of fatherhood and a return to education I haven’t had the time I once had to regularly update my WordPress page. However I have been endlessly writing new songs to keep ‘stress’ at bay. I find that writing my songs are the easiest part but finding time to record them is quite tedious. Nevertheless I got a few hours today to upload not just one song but a handful which I have put into a wee album.
The songs explore a lot of different topics well the usual ones that I explore anyway. Although I love playing all the songs I write, I particularly enjoy Daydreaming, Stress and Ireland Bound.
So check it out. Give it a listen to. Find out a song which sticks out for you and let me know. Any and all feedback is greatly received and appreciated.
I suppose it sounds more ominous than it actually is which is simply a short instrumental piece to introduce a few songs which I have wrote.
I would like to think that if I was savvy with garageband I would introduce a small drum beat and maybe some form of electric guitar riff to mirror what I play on the acoustic. However I am unable to import my own songs to garageband 😦 I can only create ones afresh…so for the meantime this will have to suffice!!
Junior Chills – There Won’t Be Many Coming Home (Roy Orbison cover)
I first heard this song while watching The Hateful Eight (shame on me I suppose) and instantly loved it. I read a bit about the song and found that it was created for a film which Roy Orbison starred in called ‘The Fastest Guitar Alive’ which was set during the American Civil War. As such I felt that I could do a cover of the song and relate it to other periods of history which I have attempted to reflect in the video using:
The Hateful Eight: set during 1860’s – 1870’s
The High Plains Drifter: 1800’s
Cross of Iron: 1943
The Wild Bunch: 1913
Full Metal Jacket: 1950’s – 1970’s
Wee acoustic number of a fantastic song which I hope I haven’t ruined for anyone.
