Win a pair of tickets to the Rachel Taylor Brown album release show, Sunday May 4th at Mississippi Studios!

Here’s how: just find an image that could be the inspiration for a new song. The image can be from anywhere. Think of it as the heart of a song, it should embody a strong mood or suggest a story. Send it on over – you could win free tickets, and I could write a new song based on it!

Tweet the image to me using the link below, or you could post it here in a comment. The winner will be announced next Saturday, May 3rd, the day before the show.

Big Takeover Review of Pony EP

Some nice coverage from Big Takeover for the Pony EP!

He takes a page out of Red House Painters/Sun Kil Moon leader Mark Kozelek’s unusual-cover playbook with a tender, elegiac country-folk reading of John Mellencamp’s “Cherry Bomb.”

Thanks to Mark Suppanz for the great writeup!
