about

These are my interpretations of five songs from Beck's Song Reader. If you are not familiar with the Song Reader, it is a collection of tunes that Beck Hansen released only as sheet music -- no recordings of his own. I spent a month learning a bunch of them, put on a house concert, then decided to embark on a recording project. During this time, many other artists took on the same project, and now there is even an "official" Song Reader album, endorsed by Beck himself, featuring a lot of well-known musicians. But I'm proud of mine and I like to think that they stand as an example of what Beck hoped for when he launched the Song Reader.
