Bio: Originally from Stockholm and Hudiksvall, Sweden. I live in Charleston, SC since 2001. I use the original VoiceTone Harmony-G quite a bit… but not on this take
I am NOT left handed! I mirrored the webcam so I could watch myself in a better way as I was recording. Just so you know :)
Wonderful Original! Can hear the emotion in your voice. The guitar compliments your vocals perfectly! Really loved the performance, raw and real!
Heey Chris I love the song and your raspy voice. Great job!
I like it! Hugs for you!
Great song, Chris! I may have to borrow it. ;-)

Nice job! What did you record it with? Any effects at all?
I have the original ZOOM H4 handy recorder. I tried using that together with the webcam (to get it in stereo) but got terrible latency because the H4 is USB 1.0. So I recorded it…and am singing together with the recording when recording it on the webcam :) I used some reverb, that’s all. I think I used Audacity (freeware app) for the “editing”.
Love the husky realism in your voice. It’s kind of a trippy vid with the stockings in the back and all. Gives me a Stan Rogers vibe. Ya’ move me dude…good song.
Thanks, Brian! lol, yeah the stockings makes it easier to date the vid… around X-mas. Year 2009 to be more exact :)
And again, thanks for the kind words about the song. I actually have a hard time beleiving myself that I wrote it! I must have stepped in the way when the song was on it’s way to Steve Earle’s brain :D
I was searching for a song with “standing on your doorstep” in it, and i found this! amazing! i broke up with my boyfriend, and he moved away. i’ve bought a plane ticket to make a surprise visit on his birthday next week, and i wanted to think of a way to tell him i was on his doorstep. i’m going to send him a link to this song! thank you so much! please pray for me that it works out!
