A Birthday Gift for Thom Yorke

When deciding which band I wanted to cover for a project, it was really between The Smiths and Radiohead. I love both bands dearly, but in the end, it came down to the number of songs in their catalogs. If I had another year or two of my life to spend completely dedicated to one single project, there might very well be a Radiohead Project however, chances are slim that I would ever have the financial means I had in 2010 which gave me 1300 hours to sing AND still pay bills and childcare! However, I never say never...

In the mean time, it has always been a major life goal to work with Thom Yorke. And because so many amazing and unexpected things have happened in the past two years, I consider it within the realm of possibility. Dreams don't come true unless you pursue them and desires can't be fulfilled unless you make them known. So Thom, if you are reading this, happy birthday! Please let our voices connect soon...

Here is my very first all-vocal track, recorded in 2004, that became the recording inspiration for what was to become The Smiths Project 6 years later.

P.S. If you crank up the volume after the last note, you'll hear sirens going down my street outside. It fit well with the song so I left it in...
