Special Thanks: Amanda Palmer

Special thanks to guest speaker Amanda Palmer, who outlined her songwriting process, discussed what a “definitive” recording means in the world of endless variation, talked crowdfunding, turned the class on to Tim Minchin, and played “The Bed Song.” What a class this has been. Break out the threadbare cardigan sweaters: I will be teaching a seminar at Yale University entitled “The Art and Business of Songwriting.” Course description: “Music sits at the forefront of creative and technological revolutions, and songwriting remains the fundamental form of its expression. This seminar will focus on establishing a personal songwriting voice, and then explore a song’s application within the fundamentally shifting industries of film, TV and the Web via crowd sourcing, collaboration and copyright.” Sounds good, right?

Special thanks to yesterday’s guest speaker, Jonathan Coulton, who counseled how to extract pathos from a sea creature, social commentary from IKEA, and human (if flawed) speech from a code monkey.

The Mike Errico Holiday Show: This Thursday at Joe’s Pub, NYC

The Mike Errico Holiday Show: This Thursday at Joe’s Pub, NYC

THE MIKE ERRICO HOLIDAY SHOW Thursday, Dec. 20th, 7:30p Joe’s Pub, 425 Lafayette St., NYC CLICK HERE FOR SHOW INFO Dave Scalia: Drums Jessie Reagen Mann: Cello Special Guest: Krysta Rodriguez The Holiday Show is a highlight in a year that has been filled with them: I’ve been so grateful to play for you, live, on TV and in theaters. And this year I became a dad to a beautiful baby girl, Catherine. She gets the hiccups now and then, and seems to tolerate me hovering over her bassinet. It’s been outrageous. 2013 will feature some major new work that I am very excited to share with you. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves… In keeping with a long-standing Holiday Show tradition, I’ll distribute gifts, known as “Holiday Omens.” (What are Holiday Omens? CLICK HERE.) Recipients will be invited to interpret the Omen’s personal significance in the coming year. Hilarious, poignant or cautionary, they have proven to be alarmingly accurate. Let’s have a party. I’m looking forward to seeing you there. – M Facebook Band Page The community continues growing, and is updated regularly with great new music, special deals, and, oh yes, Web insanity. Join the party. CLICK HERE.

I know it I do not care how long it takes I do not care what stands in my way I don’t care what anybody has to say I know myself and I am not afraid And someday, I’ll get there I’m gonna get there, I know it I’ll get there I know it.

Mike Errico, “Springtime” (Live)

Mike Errico, “Springtime” (Live)

BUY ON iTUNES: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/mike-errico/id3567281 Springtime Still entwined in your arms, barely reaching the alarm I feel the breeze, slow and smooth, and it moves my hand like a lazy raft in an empty Southern California swimming pool The day clocks in late, takes the keys from the moon, kicks up its feet and falls asleep, and I’m guessing it’s a Wednesday, like it matters anyway Springtime, creeps through the blinds, you open your eyes. Springtime, the sun shines The birds have returned. They got stickers on their suitcases and pictures of the big vacation, and I wonder what you’ve dreamed that makes you smile that way at me I am drifting, drifting over you. I don’t care what you got to do today, I got something better for you anyway. I got something that’ll make you wanna stay. I am drifting, drifting over you. Still entwined in your arms, barely reaching the alarm I feel the breeze, slow and smooth Mike Errico at Moonwork, the long-running variety show in NYC.
