'Verse (2009)

My RPM Challenge Album for 2009

Bad For You (2010)

My second RPM entry. Most of these songs are just me, my acoustic guitar, the 7-day shareware demo of Acoustica Beatcraft, and an SM-57 microphone. This year, though, there's some collaboration. It features work by Jason Hurst (Tracks 2 & 3), Jacob Talkington (Tr. 1), & Greg Freir (Tr. 6). The lyrics to Big Love-Crumbs are all borrowed from e. e. cummings. Lyrics to Oscar Schell are from the book Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer. Lyrics for No Recess Behind The Wall are borrowed from Noam Chomsky, Bertrand Russell, Albert Einstein, Roger Waters, Kurt Cobain, and others. Thanks to Natalie Valentine for art design. I also blogged several different stages of progress for each song on the blog at: www.birminghamverse.com. Hopefully, it rocks a little for being written and recorded in such a short time (whew!). If you want copies of anything, just ask. * *.* - Daniel Hurst (hurstdm@yahoo.com)
