I got to sing the song "Love me or Leave me" (1928!) for the last episode of Boardwalk Empire! Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks were the amazing orchestra- and the song will be included in the season finale of Boardwalk Empire which airs on HBO this Sunday night October 26 at 9pm. Check out the song.
Hello wintery peoples,
I'm excited to participate in Record Store Day again!
On April 19th we will release a limited (3,000 copies) orange 7 inch vinyl. Side A is "You've Got Time" and Side B is "Call Them Brothers". I have been loving playing vinyl records for a while now, and hopefully this little record can join in and spin happily in your house!
