it’s not you, it’s me

Filed under: wip | Back to: Homepage

EXP00903 I’ve been playing around with the basics for this song for several months, but I didn’t really figure out what it was about until vacation in Joshua Tree.  I was going to title it i don’t know #2 (because idk #1 is on downtime), but I think this is a much better title:

it’s not you, it’s me

Yes, that’s a whistle solo in the middle.  I recorded this in one take and whistled in place of what was intended to be a guitar solo, but the whistling is growing on me.  Maybe I’ve been inspired by Andrew Bird.

That makes 6 solid new songs in the hopper since the last album with a few more that are marinating.  I think a new album is in the works for 2009…

Cafe La Flore Tonight (Saturday, October 11th)

Filed under: gigs | Back to: Homepage

Super late notice, but I’m going to bring my guitar over to Cafe La Flore tonight and play a few songs with my friends Robin and Eric.  I want to get some live feedback on a new song (titled either “it’s not you, it’s me” or “i don’t know #2”) that I may or may not have finished this afternoon.  Apparently this place is super small and chill.  Come by if you want to relax a bit:

Time: TONIGHT, Saturday, at 7pm.
Where: Cafe La Flore – 1032 Clement St, San Francisco (map and directions)

More gigs coming soon…

Play downtime on Rhapsody

Filed under: albums | Back to: Homepage

Brad Meador - downtimeAlmost a year after setting up digital distribution on CDBABY, downtime has finally made its way to Rhapsody.  I have no idea how I get compensated for this, but I’d like to find out.  If you’re a Rhapsody subscriber, please go download it and set play on repeat.

Even if you’re not a subscriber, Rhapsody will allow 25 free plays per month.  So do me a favor and play the tracks below a couple of times and we’ll see if I recoup my setup costs.  Thanks!

The Nicest Guy She’d Meet
I Can’t Feel Love
I Don’t Know
Come Again
The Bitter Guy
Cryin’ Dyin’ Blues
Marie’s Song
New York’s Just a Dream
Not Anymore
Micheline Reprise

BTW – Just got back from a week in Joshua Tree.  Like last year, Christopher and I got some great recording done.  I’ll post some stuff as soon as I’m done mixing and mastering.  But first I’ve got a couple of days to spend at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival!
