Kids: The Joy of Collaboration!

New song! I’ve been a fan of Brian Lambert for a while now, so I was especially excited when he asked me if I thought his latest song needed anything. He suggested that it might need a synthesizer part, so I added one and also added some backing vocals. And just for fun, I made the nifty poster you can see in the video below…

I really enjoy collaborating with other musicians. For example, last year, I really loved playing on a couple of songs with the La La Lettes — “J’ecoute La Radio” b/w “Song 71 (You Didn’t Want My Love).” I played keyboard and sang backup on the first one, and I played drums on the second one. And I seriously can’t listen to “J’ecoute La Radio” without smiling. It’s such a fun song!

And, of course, there’s my ongoing collaboration with Timothy Simmons. We’re working on a new album at the moment, but here’s a track from our first one. I’m not sure I’d call them “songs” so much, or even compositions. They’re more like sonic explorations.
