Windhaven's Indie Acoustic Fusion

At rehearsal with Windhaven last night I had an epiphany. Victoria suggested that we try my song “This Old Dawg”, so we gave it a go. I didn’t really know what to play, so I started playing the song’s bass riff on my 12-string acoustic. Doug jumped in on the congas, and Victoria joined in […]

In Your Eyes

[podcast]http://www.wicasta.com/music/mp3/inyoureyes.mp3[/podcast]Windhaven’s cover of Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” was completed on June 30, 2010.

Hallelujah

[podcast]http://www.wicasta.com/music/mp3/hallelujah.mp3[/podcast]Windhaven’s cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” was completed on June 27, 2010. Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord That David played, and it pleased the Lord But you don’t really care for music, do you? It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth The minor fall, the major lift The baffled king composing […]

Re-Imagining The Blog

I think anyone who has read my Blog for any length of time knows that I’ve sort of been casting about in the wilderness. None of the usual stuff I’ve talked about for years will fly anymore. I’ve have too many loved ones and relatives waiting around to be offended by the things I say […]

If I Build It… Okay, How’s That Go Again?

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how to better use this web site. The main page here hasn’t turned out to be as dynamic as I’d hoped. Sure, there are a lot of links, and you can sift through a lot of information quickly, but for a lot of people it all sort of […]

Windhaven

I haven’t been excited about any project in recent memory as much as I am excited about my acoustic trio, Windhaven (which I’m doing with Victoria Sadler and Doug “Wolf” Schwartz). It’s all such a new adventure. For all of us involved in this project, it’s very much a departure. For me, it means not […]

This Old Dawg @ Rock The Space 2

If there’s one thing that drives me crazy as a musician, it’s when you bust your ass to record a really cool song, only to have it fall far short of your goals. One of my greatest disappointments of recent memory was “This Old Dawg”, which I first recorded in 2008. I’d only just started […]
