Lovely Night: Duet with Erin Connolly (M.E. Cover)

Mary Elizabeth BeckmanErin and I recorded Mary Elizabeth Beckman’s song Lovely Night as a duet:

Lovely Night

We took some liberties with one of the verses; I think M.E. would be ok with that.  Click M.E.s picture to the right to hear the original.

This the first time Erin and I have sung together.  I think we may have to work up some other songs soon!

Mary Elizabeth Beckman

Mary Elizabeth BeckmanOne night at the Bazaar, Mary Elizabeth blurted out “Brad and I are going to be friends forever!”.  Who knew forever could be so fleeting?  Here’s some beautiful music from a CD she gave me last year.

Forever
Here I Am Again
Synchronicity
Moon Inside of Me
Lovely Night
Can You Feel
Little Gemini
They Rode

Listen to her live recordings from the Utah here.

Rest in peace, M.E..

Three things…

First, come to the show at the Velo Rouge on Saturday!

Second, a couple of streaming albums to listen to:

Third, February is Write an Album Month.  I am less ambitious, shooting for 2010 to be write a song year.  At the pace I’ve been going, it feels like my deadline is a little tight.

The Nicest Guy She’d Meet at Hotel Utah

I was the luckiest guy in the room on Monday Night – my name was drawn last (out of 70+?), so I got to play second.  Here’s the performance.

Front CoverEvery December I think to myself “this is the year I’m going to write that Christmas song that becomes a perennial holiday hit and then I can live off the royalties for the rest of my life just like the guy in About a Boy.”  But I don’t think this December is the one.  Check back with me next year.
