WOODEN WAND – ” Aurora “

In May of 2015, I traveled to Chicago to record some songs for my album Clipper Ship. The band for these sessions was bassist Darin Gray, guitarist Jim Elkington, percussionist Glenn Kotche, and multi-instrumentalist Jim Becker. We recorded four songs in just a few days. Two of the songs made it onto the album, but I ultimately decided to omit the remaining two, as they did not fit with my concept of the album.

Everyone told me I was crazy to cut these songs, as they had been the favorites of everyone who heard them, but I’ve never blanched at the murder of darlings: the two songs I cut were decidedly more ‘rock’ and, while it pained me to omit them, I knew I’d eventually have to release these songs. Well, eventually is now.
Included here for the first time are the two previously unheard songs recorded at this session with some of the most inventive and creative musicians a songwriter could ever hope to know.
