So Tim and Bill and I have been jamming together for thousands of years. We play about half of every song because we get lost or one of us (usually me) doesn’t know the rest of the song, or we get bored because songs that are meant to have vocals sound pretty repetitive without vocals.
Now I’ve known for years that my wife’s friend Jessica has a magnificent voice. She sang at our wedding, as a matter of fact. I’ve been saying for years that I need to get her to come out and sing with us. It was one of those, “we should do this sometime” kinda things that just never seemed to happen. Well, this past Friday I changed that. I called Jess up and invited her to come out and jam with us.
Then, something magical happened! We actually played a song all the way through to the end! It was amazing! Not to mention that her voice just sounds awesome! I’ve always loved the sound of a powerful female vocalist with a hard rock / heavy metal band behind her. Despite her being nervous as hell, she did great and things just started to click.
So without further ado, here’s a taste of awesomeness.
Over the Hills and Far Away
You Ought to Know
My buddy at work thought this was the original song before he heard the vocalist.
I am still siked about having a vocalist. It is awesome to play through and work on whole songs! I sure hope we can keep it together and start playing out sometime. I would love to play live again!
AWESOME! When do you guys start touring? All kidding aside, it does sound like you have something there. Jessica has a great voice, and its commanding. Like Pat Benatar, Joan Jett, ect.
Imagine how much better it would sound if that bass player had any chops. He SUCKS!!
