A quick follow up for now to this recent post, just to mention that this compilation was released yesterday. Pretty much perfect timing for me as I’ve been quite keen to explore this music in greater depth; with the collection spanning ten years I couldn’t ask for a better way to do so.
Comprised of singles, live versions, alternate takes, covers and tracks featured on various compilations, Stray Songs contains a total of 27 tracks – really quite the perfect thing for anyone looking to find out what I’m making a fuss about, as well as offering plenty for those that have known all along.
It’s a digital only, self-release, so please do yourself, the artist, and the world a favour by heading over to any of the following stores to purchase a copy; then tell everyone you know how great it is – it might just be the only way they’ll ever know.
For those interested in the tracklisting:
- I Told Jesus Christ How Much I Love Her
- Broken Hearted Wine
- You’re Always Going Away
- Keep You From Harm
- Waited For You (live)
- Can’t I Wonder (solo)
- Birds For Ellen
- You Will Miss Me When I Burn
- To Be Home
- Waited For You (solo)
- Shakes (live)

That’s just over 140 minutes of some purely beautiful music, and more than worth the humble price. Get into it!
