Written for possible inclusion in a movie.
So, it looks like a song I wrote and recorded and then forgot about is about to be on national TV! Yay for the internets.
The song, Battle Hymn of the Republic, is an arrangement of a classic abolitionist hymn by Julia Ward Howe. A short section of the song will be used in Christiane Amanpour two part series, Back to the Beginning. Also, this show is the #1 show on Friday nights. That’s nice too.
This song was mixed by the very talented Pedro Costa.
Pedro and I also created ANOTHER adaptation of a public domain song called Joshua Won the Battle of Jericho, which unfortunately we can’t post. But, you CAN hear it on Friday night ABC, 8/9.
Bought a new ukulele at Claremont Folk Music Center. I can’t recommend that place enough. You need to go there and buy something. Anything.
Here’s my first ever ukulele song. I’m Gonna Have The Best Day.
But seriously, the artist formerly and currently known as Beck has created his latest album as sheet music only. I mean, that’s kind of cool, but also not accessible to the average listener…
What do YOU think?
In case you didn’t know, Garret produced and mixed SWG’s last two recordings. Here’s his latest EXCELLENT recording under the name Tomorrow Is Already Here. The album is called Make Believe.
