Howdy fans of Joe Eddie!
Just dropping a note to update you on a few new songs that I’ve written in the past few weeks…
A local brewery, Half Brothers, in downtown Grand Forks, is sponsoring a songwriting competition throughout the summer.
Contestants are asked to submit a new song, recorded live, each week through the months of June, July, and August.
You can see all of my song entries on my youtube channel, at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCz4q1RWJPb53G-JwY681q8w/featured
For my song entries, I decided to write each one as part of a larger
collective story. I’m angling for a sort of river fishing adventure
Here are the first four songs, in order of appearance:
Song #1: “Ain’t Gon’ Fishin’ (In The Mornin’)” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7niOc3LNz9Q&t=30s
Song #2: “Lady Foot Dangle” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vw_MnEtUxaw&t=24s
Song #3: “All On The Banks Of The Muddy Red River” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uxgs8M5_tmg
Song #4: “Into The Belly Of The Catfish” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsp_777fhAI
The next entry is due today …. so I’ll be looking for inspiration, reaching for my pen, in just a few minutes …
I hope you enjoy the songs, and the story. I realize they’re a little long, and the cuts are a little rough …
Hopefully, in time, they get ironed out a bit, and when all’s sung and done, we end up with a nice little folk story.
If you’re following along, I sure thank you, and please feel free to let me know!
