Let's get right to the good stuff shall we? For a free download of my cover of Simon and Garfunkel's "The Boxer" click here. Once there, click on the big blue letters that say "Buy Now" and then enter a big fat zero when asked how much you want to pay -- or some other number, followed by your credit card information :)
aside, we put this track together in the basement of my aunt's house. My
cousin-in-law Chris is a bit of a local music phenom who also dabbles
with at-home DIY recording. He's the one in the video rocking the
shaker/tamborine combo and I handled the Uke, vocals and piano.
since I know you've all been thinking "Man, I wish I could have Ben
Wood playing Ukulele in my ear when I go for my morning jog/drive
through my morning commute/gaze longingly out of rain-swept windows" you
are in luck.
But wait, that's not all.
As you may or may not know, my sister
and I are film enthusiasts and have some lofty goals of world
domination. But every journey has a first step so we decided that
putting together a quick music video would be good practice for future
In hindsight music videos are a difficult first step, as
the need to synch your video to an audio track is exaggerated, making
it hard to convincingly mimic that you're singing live when you're
actually not. But all in all I think it came together pretty well for a
couple of kids who didn't really know what they were doing.
