    I was torn this week on whether to do this song myself or set Recovering Bassist onto it because it seemed right up his street. Then I thought, por que no los dos?

    Turns out he'd heard of them and gladly agreed to lend me some banjo uke. Guzzler' s already done a great version of this too but here is ours. Unfortunately in the midst of processing or editing or something Trent's been transported back to a 1970s kung foo film. He sounds good though!

    His singing style reminds me of the lead singer of the Crash Test Dummies

    Hi, Fred! My only excuse for this is that it's been raining all day and I've been stuck inside. I was thinking that Bon Iver would qualify as being post-2010, but they were just slightly too early; however it has been covered by many newer artists since 2010.

    My favorite vocalist right now is a guy named Puddles Pity Party. Really. He did this Sia song on his debut 2015 album, "Live At Joe's Pub." Boy, I wish I could sing like that guy.

    I thought for sure that this would be one of those Seasons that I just could not find a number for. And then I remembered - a couple of months ago, in a particular mood, I worked out a crummy arrangement by a relatively new artist. It didn't seem to be coming together, so I let it languish.

    Then this Season topic. I looked the fellow up, and his first real record was in 2011. Hooray! Too bad my version stunk.

    But I went back to it and I think it came out OK. And I think Ed Sheeran is a talented guy, regardless of his massive popularity, and I really like this song a lot. I added a bit of a line, appropriate for those of us closer to 70 than 23, and it's a live take, complete with mistake. But hope you like it.

    I'm pretty out of the scene, new music-wise, especially locally. So I enterd "best new portland music" into a search engine, and I found out about the Lithics. They sound great, so I did my best to work up a uke version of Excuse Generator.



    Thanks for the new music challenge, Fred, it's always fun to check new sounds!

    We formed "The Saturday Blues Project" after said date, so I thought of doing one of our songs. Then I was looking through old files of our early stuff and came across a rough take of a song that we never developed into our repertory. Revisiting it, I thought it deserved a wider audience and I will now put pressure on the lads to get it revived with the band too.

    So, I took the rough rehearsal mix and added a Uke Bass and a 6 String Tenor as well as doubling the original vocal. I also had to edit the structure a little as in the version I had there is a space left for a sax solo.

    I think this was in my head back when we laid down the first draft because the theme of that week's season was Nursery Rhymes. However as I wrote something else for that week and the band never developed the song beyond a rough draft, I think I ran out of time to include it on that season. So as this season isn't theme related, but rather band related, I thought I'd include it here.



    PS In case you'd like to hear more of our band, our first albums are available on both Bandcamp and Spotify. Just type "The Saturday Blues Project" into the search engines there.

    Who knows? Maybe someone who is stuck this week might even do a cover of another song of ours from one of those albums. If so, I can provide you with lyrics and chords.
