Description
At long last, my new CD with my wife Eshinee is finished. When we started it, we never thought it would be a "side project" for five years! I've been wanting to share a track or two here for months, but in my travels throughout Botswana, I haven't had Internet access that I haven't had to pay time and bandwidth on for two years. Imagine, paying $3 just to upload a song, eh?

"And Haul and Haul" is inspired by traditional maritime music. It's a silly song about a spendthrift captain who hires an incompetent crew to save money.

This song is from our CD "Songs From Dark Waters," which contains music from and inspired by the Neverwinter Nights 2 campaign Dark Waters, written by Adam Miller. I had the geek-fun task of creating the folk music of the imaginary world of the game. The style is closely informed by the folk music of the Canadian maritimes (Eshinee's homeland; one of my academic interests as an ethnomusicologist).

For the month of August, we are offering the whole CD free to download on SoundClick. I hope you MacJammers won't mind clicking over there to grab the other songs. It gets us ratings on that site, which might sell us some eCDs in September.

Back in my early 20s, I was practicing bass three hours a day, playing in a band with a drummer who practiced six hours a day and a guitarist who was one the "up and coming" lead guitar players of my home town. Plus, I was writing a song every day. I... [see more]
