My newest original song!
Adam Mormolstein Plays His Hits is also now available! Once only circulated amongst a small group of rare music collectors this album has finally made it’s way to the broader public. Take a journey through the first decade of my songwriting/recording/playing/ and enjoy such uber-hits as With-or-Without You or the drama soaked Quarter Life Crisis! Get your copy TODAY!
I am finally making my music available for you to check out/download/buy via this website called Bandcamp. It’s a similar concept to the iTunes store in as much as that YOU can download my music, but it allows the artist a lot more flexibility to set their own prices, and even let YOU pay what you want for certain tracks/albums/etc. Which is cool.
I’ve got my first batch all loaded up which is an album I made back in 2009 called 30. 30 was an experiment in songwriting. I challenged myself to write and record a new song everyday for 30 consecutive days in an attempt (I guess) to write a lot of songs, or something. Luckily I muddled through and was able to finish the project (albeit I didn’t sleep very much). It plays like one mans journal of a Chicago summer month in 2009. A very raw, honest, sometimes personal, sometimes weird, album. If you listen closely you can hear the early morning birds picked up in the mics.
Stay posted as I get more stuff uploaded (Dang you slow upload speeds!)
Check out my version of one of my all time favorite songs by two brothers named Santo & Johnny.
The Tuning: C#min Low to High
B C# E G# C# E
The last three chords in the outro played on the Guitar are:
C#Maj F#Half Diminished C#6/9 (basically a 9th chord with the 6th in there as well)
A cool live version by Santo & Johnny. I’m not sure why you can’t hear the Electric Guitar at all, but it makes it really easy to isolate what the steel part is doing.
Well, it only took a few months but I finally finished my rendition of The Simpsons Theme Song! I’m not sure why (I mean other than it’s awesome), but one day the idea popped into my head to try and cover it, and it has consumed my life ever since. Let me know what you think!
The tradition continues. Every year since 2005 I’ve done a rendition of a holiday jingle (and bell). This year is an homage to classic country! Download the album and come back in a year for the next installment!
“So goodbye, so long, the road calls me dear”
With my work transfer complete, I’m excited to be starting a new adventure as I move to Nashville Tennesse. Here is a classic Tom Waits song from the album “Closing Time” to commemorate. Enjoy!
Ashokan Farewell. Another little rainy day
cover, this time of a
Song written by Jay Ungar
used in Ken Burns, The Civil War.
It’s one of my favorites, but
I think I say that about every song I cover.
Simple and spare,
just the way I like it.
The rain is
I hope you think it’s nice.
