Everybody loves a vocoder. This is a vocoder based cover of the epic saga that is Gillian Welch's "I Dream a Highway."


released April 20, 2018
Of course thanks to Gillian for writing amazing haunting ghost Americana. This song sang me to sleep on a borrowed bed while my wife slept across an island in a hospital on the other side of the planet. I dreamt a highway binding us together through the suffering and the loss we had already faced and all that we didn't know was yet coming for us.

Huge thanks to Joel Stockamp who took this raw stem of a pretty bad vocal and turned it into something listenable.

Thanks for Michael Wright for reminding me that someone other than him might dig it.
