birthday music for me!

June 10, 2012

one of my favorite things ever is when folks make things for each other, and i just recieved a piece of birthday music from good pals Ben Miranda and Drew Durepos yesterday.  it’s awesome!  thanks you two guys!

i wouldn’t call it a tradition yet, but this sort of thing’s been happening ’round these parts for a while.  here are some examples!

1.  a piece i wrote for my buddy jaron hilger a few years ago:

3.  my 30th birthday recording, which i heard from the backseat of a car, blindfolded.  this was made by a whole bunch of loved ones including steve niketopoulos, ben miranda, nadia cone, jim cooper, james mitchell, my dad, andrew sole, rick franklin, ryan jedlika, elaine friedberg, and “ola.”

4.  a piece of mark messing’s that i arranged for his birthday this year:

hey friends,

with some free time today i’ve rediscovered some oldies from the steiny songwriting archives and decided to post a few.

this first one  a song i wrote for my good friend Jaron Hilger for his birthday last year.  this is something i used to do more often for birthday gifts, and this one was particularly fun for me.  it also features “tiny steiny.”

hope it gets yer rump shak’n
