Week three! So soon! Here's a full moon fresh air video from the Ferndale cemetery featuring the one and only Johnny Houx:
Johnny and I met over ten years ago at the Sidewalk Cafe open mic in NYC. He immediately stood out as a writer who made me want to write and a singer who made me want to sing. Next time I'll ask him to sing one of his originals!
A few years ago I was surprised and delighted to run into Johnny some 3500 miles west of the East Village and Ferndale has been a favorite tour stop ever since. This April I'll be playing a couple special shows in Ferndale, one with another gifted John Craigie. We'll be at The Old Steeple 4/20, and the night before a friend and I will be covering Tom Petty's Wildflowers in its entirety! Am I taking this covers project too far? Maybe. But who could choose only one song from Wildflowers?
Hope you enjoy this song as much as I enjoyed playing an ebow in the sunshine. PJ Harvey is one of my favorite artists and Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea was the album that made me fall in love with her.
