Coming soon to a couch near you! We’ve been booking some intimate home shows in the Portland area this summer and are looking for some more homes to invade. So if you would like to host an Acoustic Living Room Concert please let us know!
Here are some quick links to various retailers where you can purchase a downloadable MP3 copy of this single.
We haven’t had the chance to get a good full-length live recording in awhile, so here is a live single of my song, “Green” from my CD Don’t Look Back. This song was recorded live 5 years ago on this same day, July 31, 2010 at Insomnia Coffee. I was joined by two of my good friends who accompanied me during the concert: Nick Garrett-Powell on lead guitar (he’s playing an acoustic run through some effects pedals), and Tanner Johnson on violin. Fans of the Dave Matthews Band will recognize some influence in this song.
Been flirting with disaster
Skirting little too close to the edge
Foolish things I’ve been chasing after
Have gone and placed the noose ’round my head
Thought they’d bring me pleasure
But I’ve found out to my discontent
That satisfaction comes in equal measure
With guilt and shame and death in the end
Grass is greener on the other side
So they say, so they say, but I don’t trust it
Maybe if you’re looking through green glass
But flowers pass, they fade away before you know it
The moments all just fly by so fast
And then they’re gone away
Been looking for some greener pasture
Like a wandering sheep, from your side I’ve strayed
But withered grass is poor cure
For this longing ache, your love I crave
Still my eyes are green with envy
For I’ve seen the riches of wicked men
Flourish like green trees in summer’s safety
Though they’ll perish come winter’s wind
No, the things of this world
Can’t take them with you, they won’t last
Just persevere under trial, stand fast
And you’ll wear a crown of life
James 1:9-15; Psalm 23; 37:1-13,35-36; 49:16-17; 119:37,176
