Johnny Massey - 02 Diamonds

Instruments:
JM: guitar, bass, vocals
Kristen Massey: keys, percussion (stix)

Lyrics:
Met her in a bar ordered a beer
She just stood there overcome with fear
I know what to say I know what to do
Diamonds stole alone are easier with two

In the morning sun over some food
Layout the plans of what goes down at noon
She will drive the car and wrestle with the tears
As I pull away with twenty years

Later at a bar order a beer
I just stood there conceal the tears
I know what to say I know what to do
Diamonds stole alone are easier with two

Fires of Bangkok - 02 To Catch the Trochillidae

02 To Catch The HummingbirdI have always been deeply influenced by international music.  After listening to Geoffrey Oryema I wanted to create a song with guitar that possessed the same harmonic qualities.  Most of this music is recorded very quietly.  This is what gives the music its ethereal harmonics.  The brushes on this song were created by the dragging of shoes across a dirty cement floor.  Real brushes didn’t create the sound we were looking for.
