beck's SONG READER show at WCL!
when i heard about beck’s releasing his new record as a songbook, with no actual recording to go along with it, i thought i was going to explode with excitement. AND jealousy for not thinking of it first. a truly brilliant idea. it’s pretty much the best promotion anyone could ask for, thousands of musician fans learn your songs, interpret them in thousands of different ways, truly care about them because they’ve made them their own, perform them so other non musicians care about them too, then when beck eventually goes on tour and plays them for the first time to a hungry audience, the audience already knows them. god i love this. and you can hear me and 19 other amazing interpretations of these songs at WORLD CAFE LIVE tuesday january 8th.
