Greetings from my bunker to yours. Time's are strange, and I'm spending quarantine going through the archives as well as writing some new material.

This is the first of many to come. It's a cover of the song that Neil Young wrote, but Emmylou Harris made famous, called Wrecking Ball.
It feel strangely relevant now, but maybe it always was.

This recording was made some years back when myself and Mika Combs, who is singing lead vocals here, were collaborating frequently and wrote some songs you'll also find on here, ie "Hey Highway," amongst many other not yet released.

lyrics

My life's an open book, you read it on the radio
We've got no where to hide, we got no where to go
But' if you still decide you want to take a ride.
Meet me at the Wrecking ball
Wrecking Ball, I'll wear something pretty and white
And we'll go dancing tonight
Meet me at the Wrecking Ball
Wrecking Ball, I'll wear something pretty and white
And we'll go dancing tonight.
I see smokey eyes right across the bar
I've seen that look before shining from star to star
Though I can't take that change
If you've got time for one dance.
The restless line of cars goes stretching down the road
But I won't telephone cause you might say hello
What is it makes me feel this way
What is it makes me want to say...
