Hard to Find a Friend's Backstage Sessions : Centro-matic

June 24, 2008
Mercy Lounge
Nashville, TN
When Centro-matic frontman Will Johnson started singing his songs for us backstage at the Mercy Lounge a very fitting scene began to form. Situated on a hand-me-down sofa in front of a cracking brick wall, Will sang a song about loss and frustration as the sun set and a coal train slowly churned along behind him. Perfect.

Backstage Sessions : The First Ten Episodes - An Audio Recap

I realized today that the posting of the second installment of our session with Ingrid Michaelson marks our tenth episode of The Backstage Sessions. I know some of you have not yet hopped on board, so I wanted to post a little easy to download sampler zip. The zip contains my favorite performance from each of our sessions, and for your convenience you can also download each track individually. Of course you can see the HD video of these performances and grab the mp3's not included on the mix by clicking on that shiny "Backstage Sessions" tab above you.

Don't worry, we're still in full-swing, I'm actually working on editing the wonderful Centro-matic session as we speak for your consumption.

What do you think of the series so far?
