Triple-barreled “Waving Kissyhead” album release special!:

“You Got Me Started“- the opening song from the Chandler Travis Philharmonic’s “Waving Kissyhead, Vol. 2 & 1“- recorded by Ducky Carlisle. I guess I was trying to write a Stax song. Great piano work on this one from Cliff Spencer!

An Ivan in Paris Live Two-fer

​”Ivan in Paris“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, recorded by The Valet at an outdoor party thrown by the Perkins Fambly, July 26, 2014.

This song has a somewhat long, strange history. It started life as an extremely minor, tossed-off experiment with an obscure electronic instrument, an Omnichord, that Bruce Maclean loaned me that somehow ended […]

Suddenly, Everything is Different

“Suddenly Everything Is Different” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic at Herring Cove, P’town, Sept. 4, 2016, shot by Belinda. Couldn’t think of a snappier way to kick off 2017’s SOTW series (and to beat the winter blues!) than to feature a little shot of one of our favorite summer gigs with this cover of a […]

I Wanna Rock Christmas

“I Wanna Rock Christmas” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic with the Athol Thingerth -video from last Sunday, Dec. 11th, at the Cape Cod Cavalcade for the Homeless at Ocean’s Edge, Brewster, shot by Ron Daniels; audio from the 2009 Cheap Seats Christmas benefit compilation “A Christmas Miracle”, our track recorded by Chris Blood at Trout […]

Hey Santa!

“Hey Santa (Mardi Thing, Xmas version)“- recorded and mixed by Chris Blood at the 2015 Cape Cod Christmas Cavalcade for the Homeless at the Jailhouse Tavern function room, Orleans, MA., Dec. 13, 2015. -A little something from last year’s Cape Cavalcade show, which was one of the best, this one was a Christmas adaptation of […]

A bedhead photo is a photo you take of yourself first thing in the morning, before you’re really awake, usually in the bathroom. Needless to say, the results […]

Put a Smile On Your Own Damn Face

“Make Yourself Happy“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic from their new digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead Vol. 1“, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain. I’m kind of surprised I ended up writing a song with this particular groove -shows once again what little control I have over what I do. […]

We All Man, We All Human

“Human“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic from their new digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead Vol. 1“, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain. The arguably brilliant lyric to this one was penned by my friend and occasional golfing buddy, playwright/director/wunderkind Gip Hoppe, whom I keep trying to talk into stuff but […]

Which One Would You Save?

“Your Wife and Mother“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic from their new digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead Vol. 1“, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain. This is a cover of a song I first heard a few years ago, thanks to my good friend Rob Hart, the Bully of Broadcasting, […]

It’s E!

“E” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, from their current digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead, Vol. 1”, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain, MA.

“E” has always been a crowd favorite, but we play it quite rarely because a.) it’s quite loud and b.) it instantly trashes my voice. Always […]
