tuesday songs

performed by Kai Widmann

It's been my new year's resolution for 2011 to spend more time making/recording/mixing music. To force myself into doing so, I decided to put up this page and post one song I recorded every tuesday.
After eight months I couldn't go on with this. Having a stressful job and a family leaves not enough room to post on a weekly basis. But I will continue posting songs every once in a while. If you don't want to miss a song, you can follow me on SoundCloud or twitter or subscribe to my RSS-Feed.
There's also a YouTube channel with some stream concerts.
You can find older recordings on the page of my old band HEY NONNY NONNY.

Song 1: Blue Always Finds Me (Hotel Lights)

4 January 2011 - First one, first take. This was written by Darren Jessee, drummer of Ben Folds Five, who now has his own band "Hotel Lights".
During a recording session in May 2012 I added the "Johnny Cash Style" piano. Playing the same note throughout the chorus was perfectly done on his version of "Hurt" and I always wanted to hear something like that on "Blue Always Finds Me".
