Join us for a night of great music by three of Edmonton's finest and most promising young singer/songwriters.
i thought i was pretty cool
at fourteen i saw james blunt on the cover
of acoustic guitar magazine with a gibson j-45
and thought that HE was pretty cool
so i ditched the fiddle and tried to make up songs
that would sound kind of like you're beautiful and goodbye my lover
then i learned to fingerpick and my thing became a thing
and i brought back the fiddle and it's one of my best friends
i switch between it and the guitar in my shows
in between is some goofy shit
and even though i forgot all about james blunt
technically he is the reason why i started putting words to chords
so now i blame everything on him
go to hell, jimmy
