This is from our JUST released album, The Story Is Everything. We're trying to beat a crazy deadline and sell 17 CDs before the end of the day tomorrow (Thursday, May 17). If we do it, we can bring physical discs to the Kerrville Folk Festival next weekend. Here's the link, should you happen to feel generous. Thanks for listening!
This is a dark folk song about Depression-era New Orleans. It's a collaboration between my wife and I.
A song about culture shock and the alienation of the immigrant experience.
Believe it or not, this song was not written about the Iraq war. In fact, it was a reaction to something I was sensing in the air back before the first Gulf War, circa 1990. I changed the wording slightly to reflect the times, but the song still works beautifully. The recording is from my new collection 2 O's, 2 E's (a reference to how I spell my last name). You can download the entire album and lots more stuff at johnvoorhees.com.
Ooo! Spooky! Well, it should be pretty obvious that this song has almost nothing to do with literal werewolves, and everything to do with a predatory mindset, but that doesn’t keep it from weirding my mother out every time I play it!
This is my great, sweeping ballad … my Piano Man, if you will. Tinged with chili powder.
A simple cautionary tale of how celebrity, glamour, ambition and just-plain inauthenticity can twist a human soul. Also, you can dance to it.
Dedicated to the inauguration of Barack Obama and the renewal of hope in America. I'm sorry, did that sound cheezy?
