    Some new songs- Indie folk?

    OK, Here is an updated mix with all of your feedback used in some form or other. Panned the instruments differently and brought the vocals down into the mix a bit. I also scooped out the whole mix at around 3-4k and brought in a bit more highs to compensate.

    Acoustic Ballad ala Ray LaMontaigne. "Water Into Wine"

    Another one I co-wrote and recorded with a friend. We played the acoustic guitars together one live take. He did lead vocals and the funky slide. I did everything else and mixed it. What do you think? No really be honest. "Water Into Wine" Thanks for...

    New original "Heart Shaped Lake"

    Hey all. This is a song i wrote with a friend and local musician in my area. I have never co-written a song in this way before so this was a new experience for me.
