“HORSE” – CT demo, recorded May 13, 2016. This one was commisioned by my friend Dietrich Strause on the occasion of his friend Dan Greif’s bachelor party. Dan had written most of the lyric (along with instructions on how best to deliver it, years ago, but had apparently never quite got around to […]
“Saw It Comin’ All Along” -the Chandler Travis Philharmonic recorded live at the Midway in April, 1999, by Tom Lawlor -a vintage CTP slobfest; suggest heavy drinking prior to listening… is that a steel guitar in there somewhere? What th’?

“I Don’t Wanna Be Hoyt Axton“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic recorded live at the Midway, possibly sometime in February, 2002, by Tom Lawlor.
Maybe I was feeling old the day I wrote this, but I think I was thinking more about character actors in general, and how odd it must be to make your living […]
“Not My Fault” -the Chandler Travis Three-O, shot by Ron Daniels at the Mews, March 1, 2016 -kind of an old favorite, and one of a series of songs I’ve written in which I’ve denied being responsible for anything, which is sometimes even true. (After all, say what you will about me, I’m not responsible. […]
“I Like Stuff (rehearsal)“- the Catbirds, recorded at the Playman Mansion, February, 2016.

Great Moments from the Cutting Room: “I Can’t Find You” (Aug. 15, 2014) and “Bob What’s-is-name” (Nov. 20, 2013) – recorded by Fred Boak (room mike) and Gerard Hoffman (Sound board) – the former is sort of a moody, downbeat little thing I wrote with a nod to Wilco and […]
“Bomp Ba Bomp“- the Chandler Travis Three-O at the Mews in Provincetown, MA, March 1, 2016, shot by Ron Daniels.
Well, of course when most folks think of the Three-O, I think the first thing they tend to think of is hip-hop, or occasionally da Ting, with the Bumpity Bump. Of course, this is the […]
“Hermetic Zeal“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic recorded live at the Midway, sometime in February of 2002 by Tom Lawlor.
Back in the early days, around the turn of the century, we -that is, us… you know, the Philharmonic – played at the Midway incessantly for years. It was kind of our heyday, and we had […]
Excerpts from “When the Roses Shine in Picardy”, “Tootie Ma”, and “Untitled” -the Chandler Travis Philharmonic at Herring Cove beach in Provincetown, Sept. 2, 2015, shot by Matt Jenson.
I’ve been dying to share these cool vids that my friend Matt Jenson took at Herring Cove last summer with you for months, but couldn’t talk […]
“I Think I Got It Wrong“- CT demo from last spring or so, recorded at Kelp Manor.
My longtime lyricist / colleague / buddy David Greenberger and I got all fired up last year after the release of “Bocce & Bourbon: The Comfortable Songs Of…“, and ended up having our best songwriting year ever, but […]
