Last year, Riley did a recording at Empty Sea Studios with Paul Silveria (Professor Banjo) that was included on compilation CD of Paul's musical pals. That track has been turned into a little video. Note that in one year someone's voice has changed.
And here it is, children...
News Flash: The Onlies (well, Leo and Riley, not Sami) are singing! Here is our first original song written by Leo and Riley, fiddle part by Sami. It's called Far From Danger, enjoy!
The Onlies don't have a gig until December 22nd at A Terrible Beauty. Until then, they will shiver like the native Seattle-ites they are.
If only they were a Florida or Hawaii based band!
In honor of that, we offer up a version of Florida Blues, as played by Riley and Johnny Calcagno. They recorded this track as part of a NW Folklife 2012 application. Stay tuned for more application tracks from Sami and her dad, and from Leo.
The Onlies recently learned The Roaring Barmaid, a popular Irish jig played worldwide. As usual, they Onlies-ized it. Hope ya like it! Watch closely to see if Riley decides to sit or stand!
By request, just the audio from the video above...
Leo penned an A part to a tune sometime last year, and we revived it after practice yesterday. Sami popped out a B part that we like, and Riley penned a series of chords that really rock. Let us know what you think!
