Two Sleepy People - featuring the band I always wanted.
Joe Plowman is my longtime collaborator and bassist, Michael Bellar is a new friend and gobsmacking pianist. It's hard for me to articulate just how happy it makes me to play with these guys. If I did, it would probably embarrass them. As you may have noticed out there in the lonely world: it's hard to find people you really connect with. When you do, you blush and giggle, feel a little high, and thank your lucky stars that there's even one other person on earth who can dig your strange mysterious fool-headed miraculous thoughts and feelings. I dig these fellas heavily. You can tell we're having fun because we break into inexplicable hysterics at 2:20. If you're lucky enough to live in the south, you can see us play together in June. If not, I have a hunch you'll have another chance. If I have my druthers, these guys will be on my payroll for the rest of their natural lives. The song is 'Two Sleepy People', and you'll hear it on the new record (if you haven't yet). It's one of Hoagy Carmichael's MANY songs that sound like they fell from heaven perfectly formed. And dang, it's just CUTE. Hey, buy some tickets already: carsieblanton.com/shows Thanks and love, Carsie
