I posted a new piece called “Morphine” to my page at Broadjam recently.  It’s an instrumental, inspired by the band Morphine (not the drug), and I wrote some lyrics to it.  I’m having a hell of a time recording the lyrics, because my singing sucks.

It’s a tough world for instrumentalists.  Singers rule.  Probably always will.  I don’t have a problem writing lyrics that are worth reading (or so I think).  My problem is vocalizing them in a way that’s worth hearing.

I’m working on various solutions to this problem.  In the meantime, I plan to spend a lot of time listening to William Shatner with Ben Folds.  My guess is that Shatner can’t sing either, but he’s figured out how not to.
