Paul Edelman’s 1st no depression Blog post
I’m Asheville based Paul Edelman aka The Jangling Sparrow
I write and perform solo.
I also have a rock trio Pick Your Switch
And I’m new to this site.
First I’d like to invite you to visit and give a listen.
I think No Depression frowns upon too much self promotion, I think they feel it becomes distastefull at a point especially since this sight is designed for folks who already love this stuff, If that’s the thinking then I agree with that.
I’m hoping to eventually grow this blog into a gig swapping center where if you are looking for a co-bill in a different city this is the spot you’d know to come to.
For now, and i’m sure it’ll stay this way as well, I thought I’d share this;
Tonight is the band’s first practice in a few weeks since the holidays.
Right now we are recording our first album ( I have two solo and two more almost ready which I encourage you to look up at cdbaby or reverbnation-how’s that for a soft sell) But this is the first as Pick Your Switch.
I had been searching for a keyboardist as a fourth member but the boys, especially since we’ve been playing out, are adamant about remaining a trio.
It’s very appealling to be a trio but I’ve been rethinking my guitar sound in order to get a fuller quality, especially going into recording. I’m trying to record as raw as possible as close to live as we can reasonably get. I play a telecaster through a fender deville.
Tonight I’m going to, for the first in years, really spend time tweeking things for a whole new guitar sound.
I expect most posts in the future will be late night buzzed rants so..thanks for stopping by.
please feel free to comment, especially on the music
