Late Night Piano Jam #1

By | Blog, Jason and the Adornauts | No Comments

It has come to my attention that I have never really recorded anything that I have ever played or written on piano. Ever. Not that it matters or makes a difference, but I wanted to record something and throw it on my website, because.. well, why not?

This is something that I started writing a week or two ago. For the most part, it’s me just messing around. It’s not formulated like a song. It’s not finished and I mess up about a billion times, but the beauty of piano, is that it all sounds wonderful anyway.

Except at the end, because you can hear my phone. If you have an iPhone, you’re going to be checking it at the end of the video. Yes, you will check it even after I warned you, because that’s what we do. We hear that text message sound and we check our phones. Even if we don’t have our phones on us, we look for them.

Anyway, I’m sorry for that, but blame Kyle Lemma. He texted me in the middle of playing.

Enjoy! Let me know what you think.

What is Jason and the Adornauts?

Jason and the Adornauts is a long-distance musical project featuring Matt Adorno and myself.

It’s not a serious project. We don’t expect to record songs and find a bajillion fans across the interweb. We don’t expect to tour or get a record label. We don’t expect anything out of it. We’re merely recording for the sake of recording. We’re playing music, because we can and because doing something like this makes playing fun again. There is no pressure to get anywhere. There is no pressure to make anything happen. It’s just a chance for a couple of dudes to play music, even if we do live 2400 miles apart.

That said, we’re going to try to record a song or two each month and post them on the Internet, so if you’re into that. Awesome. Feel free to check it out. Share it with other people. Do whatever feels right, because there’s no pressure.

Not on us. Not on listeners. Not on anyone.

For now, we’re going to do a couple of cover songs. I suspect that we will probably do an original song here and there, but I think that for the most part, we will stick to cover songs. We’ll see how that goes in the coming months. For now, go check out our Facebook page: Jason and the Adornauts, and if you’re into it and want to hear what we do in the future, like the page. If not, (and you continue to read this blog or my Facebook), you’ll probably hear about it anyway.

So. Sorry.

Anyway, you can check out our first song at the Facebook page, or below. It’s a Saves the Day song called, “Anywhere With You.” It’s from their cringeworthy album, In Reverie.
