This video is awesome on so many levels.
First, the song. What is this pseudo-rasta beat? Is she borrowing some old-school lessons from the Police?
Second, the hamster. I just can’t. Never has a hamster been better-featured in a video.
Katy, I know you were away for awhile, but thanks for coming back and bringing stuff like this.
A few years back I auditioned to be someone’s wedding performer. Now, I’ve performed at weddings before (for friends, for free) but this was for strangers. They wanted to see a demo reel.
So I very diligently put on a nice dress, makeup, and recorded several songs that they requested…..even though I was looking to teach guitar lessons, NOT perform at a wedding. (Thanks, Craigslist!)
Here is my dorky audition. Needless to say, I didn’t get the gig!
At the time, I was suuuuuuuper bummed. But you know what? Who cares! Now I have this great recording, one that I would never have made had I not created a failed audition video!
By the way, I still love this song.
So I’m looking for guitar students again and also putting out some new stuff just for fun.
Here’s a recent and very rough cover of an old Stevie Nicks song, 24 Karat Gold. It’s a demo of a demo! I like hers better, but maybe it’s just the old school drum machine.
