Jen and I wandered around town this weekend and shot a simple video for one of our songs, Lost and Unsettled. We know nothing about making videos, but quickly figured out that… well, for one thing, it’s really hard. For another, when you have no budget, you just gotta improvise. So, these are shots from our excellent neighborhood here in Somersworth, mixed in with some hot accordion action for good measure.

Anyway, a wise man once told me, “it is what it is,” and at least we now have something to throw up on the ol’ YouTube. Special thanks to our great pal Rich Woodall for the use of his Flip cam!

Hi everyone,

Well, this is it! The final two songs. It’s feels pretty bittersweet to be posting these. I even sat on them a couple days because some part of me just doesn’t want this project to be over, even though it was a ton of work. Fun work, but work nonetheless.

Jen and I decided to undertake this project a year ago because we wanted to get into playing music for some time and didn’t know where, or even how, to start. We thought a series of deadlines would help us get over the frightening prospect of writing, recording and sharing music with the world. And in that sense, the project worked perfectly. Recording a song a week meant there was no time to look back–only forward to the next song. Every week meant a new chance to try to create something special.

I’m very proud of what we accomplished, and I’m happy to say we’ll continue to write and record in the coming year. (We already have some big plans in mind.) And, we’re looking very forward to playing out as well, hopefully in a town near you!

Finally, I want to sincerely thank everyone who took the time to listen, and especially those who left us comments here and on Facebook. It was very, very exciting to get your feedback.

See you soon!

Matt and Jen

The Last Song

PS. We rang in the new year by recording a new cover tune with our pal Russ–so look for that to posted in the near future!
