CW review, 1/20/2011: Night of the Omnichord

An action-packed session this week. Our signup list was bursting at the stitches–new friends, old friends, new songs and a fully attentive room.
1. Perhaps most importantly it was Chris‘s mother’s birthday, and she got a communal Catweazle speakerphone surprise.
2. Emily Einhorn, occasionally glancing at the scribbled lyrics of this brand new song.
3. Susan Kramer’s a capella Duke Ellington.
4. Newcomer Dahlia Colman with sweet uke-ness and words like a Nova Scotia summer.
5. Another first-time Catweazle performer, Ryan Rodgers with his sensational Omnichord (a contraption originally invented by Brooks M.)
6. Another new song; Will Stratton with finger picking like midnight.

    Hello Catweazlers – Thank for all the nice words about my little Omnichord performance of ‘Own Me’ last week. I was really, really impressed with the professionalism and talent I witnessed in the room.

    If you’d like to hear more of my music (or stay in touch about your shows), then please find me below on Myspace (and on Facebook: Ryan Roger (musician page)). I am a new member of the online music community.

    Here is the demo of that tune I played on the Omnichord:
