So I failed at finishing a demo for May and I resolved to find an embarrassing enough apology cover to do. Here’s a rough cover of Heart and Soul by Huey Lewis and the News (but originally by Exile) to show you I’m sorry. Thanks to Ben for help with the guitars and bass.

This rules!
Maybe it’s just cause I’m a fan but it seems like every music project Brad gets involved in gets to be something cool

Lovely, but nothing more unfortunately. Maybe it`s because the impression from – “I Command You to Be My Woman” – was just inimitable.
