"WARTS AND ALL.... " and how can one guy play 'live'?

These songs were done in the Fall of 2012 for a Facebook group called ‘Theme Music’. Each week a new theme is posted, and memebers record a song that fi ts the theme, and post it (as a video) to the group online. Most of them are either solo acoustic performances in one take, or big studio productions with a lip/sync video. I choose to do something in between. My tracks are usually still ‘live’ with all the normal mistakes you’d expect, but I play all the instruments. It’s what it would be like if I could clone myself and got together to jam on songs I don’t really know. Most of these songs were first attempts of songs I don’t know how to play. Enjoy!

FYI there is also a Blu-Ray and DVD edition of this with all the videos, lots of commentary (excuses!) by the artiste, and a physical CD. If you're just drying to have one, drop me a note on Facebook and we'll see what we can do.

released December 18, 2012

All performances by Michael Simmons, live in one take, except:
Drums on ‘She Said, She Said’ by Wyatt Theobold
Bass on “Don’t Look Back” by Cameron Lew
Rhythm guitar on “Don’t Look Back” by Robbie Rist

Recording was typically done on multi-track equipment, but each take was done ‘live’ in one go, with a camera running. Some songs (mostly the 2nd half of the album) were recorded live with a webcam or iPhone, which is why they don’t sound as good.

Recorded and Mixed by Michael Simmons at Crab Apple West Studios, Huntington Beach CA
