new songs from my upcoming cd

First of all - Woody, checked out your myspace.com/woodyinthebasement page. Good stuff - like the mando in G minor.
I put 4 new songs on myspace.com/chipwithrow last night. They are all on my upcoming CD titled Everyday Things. What you will hear on myspace and on my web site, chipwithrow.com, are the rough mixes. I'm sending them off to Black Dog Studios in Tampa to get mixed and mastered this week.
The songs on myspace now are special because they feature the singing debut of my 5-year-old daughter Josie ("Gnu Gnu") and my wife Anna ("Everyday Things" - she does a whistling solo too). My friend Eric Jackson (myspace.com/ericjacksonmusic) plays melodica on "Gnu Gnu" and sings background on "Hello to the Rain."
What I do is folk rock with a kids/family twist. My wife is my manager, and we're putting together a whole multi-media concept with activities, educational stuff, merchandise ... I'm a teacher, and a lot of the songs have (I like to think) learning value.
My wife thinks Hello to the Rain sounds like a song Weir might sing. I've been told Gnu Gnu sounds like a Phish song - I know I've seen folks grooving to it at my gigs.
Also on myspace, scroll down to the comments and check out the cd cover art done by my pal James Hixson.

The Jack Fate Band

The Jack Fate Band is my current lineup of friends that stretch back almost thirty years and still going strong. Currently we are a quartet with two acoustic guitars, flute and percussion. We play primarily music of the 60's, but will try anything and if it works we embrace it. As we all have professional day jobs, this is more of a hobby, but I know we are having more fun than should be legal. You can usually find us in the garage on Saturday nights, but we are always willing to play benefits and parties. Just remember that there is nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile.

On the Spirit Trail

Hay now Guys,

This is cool, a forum for musicians to meet....
My name is Woody, been a Deadhead and going
to shows for many many years, so many show,
I lost count.

I've been working on a basement project CD,
called, On the Spirit Trail, inspired by all the road
trips taken over the years. It started about a year
ago as a myspace project where I recorded a
few Dead cover tunes and Dead inspired original
songs and posted them on myspace.
I've made a couple demo CDs in the past to
give out to friends I meet along the road. Then I
decided to enter a couple songs into a Relix jamoff
contest to try to get onto their compilation CD.
Did not win, but received runner up,
which was more than I thought I'd get and It got
me an add in the Relix June issue.
That gave me the inspiration to try to put
together a real CD.

It turned out to be a bit more work
than I originally thought it would be,
had to get licenses in place for the Dead and
other cover songs, CD art, CD mastering,
and have learned lots of stuff along the way
about how to make a real CD.

The CD should be released around June 21st
or so. It is at the replicators now. It is kind of
a cross between the Grateful Dead and Yonder
Mountain String Band. Will be available from
CD baby and I will be trying to sell a few along
the road durring this year's road trip.

The Jimmy Mundanes

Kings of that Fat-ass Rastabilly groove your mama should have warned you about.
Cut my teeth on Dead covers years ago! Been to 20 Shows! (19 Jerry, 1 Jimmy Herring) How do I post that on the left column? Anyone?

Just listened to your music

Dave,
Just checked out your page and I really dig Tall Tale - reminds me of Let Me Sing Your Blues Away, the old Keith Godchaux tune. King of Hearts also has (to my ears, at least) a hint of Unbroken Chain - very nice.
Did some recording last night with my friend Eric Jackson, a singer songwriter pianist. (www.ericjacksonmusic.com). He contributed backing vocals and he's coming back over to add melodica today. My album is almost finished!

mellow experimental

Hi to everyone,
I really enjoyed checking out all of the links to the forum members' music; definitely a talented bunch. Anyway, I always dug the more free-jazz, experimental jams of the Dead (especially 73-74), and am a classically/jazz trained keyboardist. Have played in various projects, but most recently my instrumental experimental project called ebu-light dew of winter & brother hare. Check us out on myspace or better yet our homepage where our most recent album is available for your listening pleasure!

Thanks Tony....that's right

Thanks Tony....that's right I didn't even realize I had changed my handle; I use this one on some other places-it refers to my job which is a stagehand in my town as opposed to the road crew I am the local crew.

Thanks for the interest again, I may give the Tall Tale a slight remix just to remove some clutter etc.....or I may get sidetracked....who knows. I'll let you know when I get some 'albums' up of my material; it will probably be streaming audio or some such.

Nice to see Chip pumping out the tunes too.....keep 'er coming Chip!
