I have been releasing a cover song into the world once a month, for the past four months. Chris Kuffner and I choose songs that we love and that inspire us, and put our own spin on them. I’m really enjoying this project and am excited about the next one, which we’re finishing up right now. I don’t want to reveal what it is, but I will say the guy who wrote it was SUPER PISSED.
If you haven’t checked out the past covers of the Gin Blossoms, Talking Heads, Elliott Smith and Gillian Welch, go for it! You can download them all for free, or if you want you can tip Chris and I a buck or two for making them.
This month’s installment of my cover series, Bess Rogers Presents: Songs Other People Wrote, is out today! This is one of my favorite songs ever by one of my favorite bands ever, Talking Heads. Chris Kuffner produced it and the two of us had a ton of fun making it. You can download it for free or pay money if you’re feeling fancy. Either way I hope you enjoy!

I just had to send somebody the lyrics to this song (hidden track on my first album) and seeing them written out like this just made me realize that this may be the best piece of music I’ve ever made. Pure poetry. And Dan Romer’s rapping is… well there are no words.

Ingrid Michaelson, Allie Moss, Greg Laswell and I visited the Sydney Aquarium while on tour in Australia. Turns out that Greg somehow knew how to speak the language of these Australian fish, and he translated for us.
If you’ve ever wanted to know what the hell I’m saying (lyrics), what the hell I’m playing (guitar tabs) or what the hell I look like (pictures and video), then you’ll love my new website! Check it out!

It is sure to be a grand old time.
AND, all the money I receive from it will go to a wonderful organization that helps victims of sex trafficking called Restore NYC. Whoever the top tipper is will get a bunch of free stuff from me!
Gloriousness will ensue.
