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.

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.

  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 […]

“Hermetic Zeal” Live at the Midway

“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 […]

Catbirds Live Video – “Groove Me”

The Catbirds– “Groove Me” -Shot by John Cody (couldn’t remember at first, but The Valet set me straight; John shot a bunch of other stuff from that night that’s also up on youtube… what night, you ask? Well, I don’t know, some night from last year, maybe in the summer, I’m guessing from how raggedy […]
