A couple of years ago, I went through some old binders from college and was amazed by how much music I learned every semester. In an effort to keep that musical growth alive, I promised Brandon that I would sing him a new song every Wednesday - something he'd never heard me sing or play before. It's been a fun practice to keep up, and upon moving to LA last month, I thought: why not videotape and share these? So here's the first in a series of Wednesday songs - a new song every week, performed in its raw state (a little bit of rehearsal, but no costumes, makeup, or perfection). Enjoy, and then start your own Wednesday tradition! Maybe it's a new sketch, song, photograph, or jig in your kitchen - make it your own, and then let us know about it. This Wednesday song is "Born to Be Blue," a song that my college jazz teacher Tierney Sutton introduced me to. It has a strange, difficult melody - but I think it's hauntingly beautiful.
