The local songwriters were in my living room earlier this week, and we had a great night. We recorded a live version of this song I posted earlier this month, and I thought you'd enjoy hearing Colin W, Greg C and Scott Z playing and singing too!

This is one of my favorite collaborations with Paul Lennon so far. I wrote the song with king of a bluesy feel, and then found a perfect marriage for the music with one of Paul's awesome tracks. Then we tinkered on it together to make it so…
