Fun Album Fact #2 – Duet with Pieta Brown

Posted in Fun album facts, No October by daveolsonmusic on January 14, 2012

“No October” features a duet of me and Pieta Brown singing my own arrangement of Tom Wait’s “Georgia Lee.”  You can hear the original version Tom’s heartbreaking song here.

In my version of the song, Pieta’s haunting voice assumes the perspective of Georgia Lee.  If you aren’t familiar with Pieta, she just released a terrific new album called “Mercury” on Red House Records.  Visit her website here.

This was one of the hardest songs for me to record, and getting my performance  just right required a lot of coaxing from Richard Medek, my producer.  His hard work paid off – the end result is a song that is at once spooky & atmospheric and emotional & plaintive.  We started thinking of it as a modern-day ghost story set to music.

I can’t wait for you to hear it.
