Add this guy to your list of Up and Coming Artists to Pay Attention To. He’s got my attention.
My lady sleeps with her legs tied in mine
once she’s tangled up, I know she’ll go
if I knew when that was coming, then I’d go
to that bed in my parents house
that I slept in so long ago
and that’s all I’m thinking now
Derek Nelson has been gathering a following of fans, and pretty quickly at that, as he just released his first EP in October. Performing with a full band, he’s headlining a show on Thursday at Lincoln Hall, and if you get there early enough, he’s apparently giving out free copies of his EP. I’ve got an evening meeting on Thursday (condo board meetings; the perils of home ownership), but I’m hoping to make it up to Lincoln Hall afterwards to check the show out. Listen to his music on his MySpace page, or stream/download a live EP for free, recorded earlier this month at the Empty Bottle.
