Back in August, American Songwriter asked Holly House to participate in their “On My Deathbed” contest. Each band in Holly House was asked to record the song they would like to hear on their deathbed.
On September 20, 2009, all five bands piled into Eastwood Salon for a marathon day of recording. Steve Martin was at the helm pushing the faders (and he did a marvelous job). Beer was drank, pizza was eaten, and jams were had. For 7 straight hours everyone put their nose to the grindstone whilst plucking and vocalizing. At the end of the day, all were exhausted but pleased with the results.
And now, without further ado….. here are the tracks:
and the relatives – Be Here to Love Me (Feat. Caitlin Rose) (Townes Van Zandt Cover)
Caitlin Rose – You Are My Sunshine (Jimmie Davis Cover)
Eureka Gold – I Go to Sleep (The Kinks Cover)
Shoot the Mountain – In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (Neutral Milk Hotel Cover)
Tristen – On and On and On (Skeeter Davis Cover)
As an added bonus, here are some new originals from a few of the bands recorded the same day:
and the relatives – fourth rate
Caitlin Rose – Shangai Cigarettes
Shoot the Mountain – As It Goes
