Emily Wells and her Symphony.

People all over the place be spitting out their thanks and gratitude and, well, I'm going to clamber into that bandwagon for a hot second. The older I get, the more of a Thanksgiving scrooge I become, but I did want to say I'm thankful people the world over respect something amazing when it lands on their screens and sets down inside their ears. A video I posted about a year ago has gone to be my most looked at piece of musical cinema I've ever captured ... at last count, "Symphony 1 In the Barrel of a Gun" has been watched 107,236 times. For perspective's sake, that's about 25,000 more times than this blog has ever been looked at (and the blog's been around a whole lot longer). There are reasons behind this wee phenomenon, sure, but I gotta say that, at the crux of this, discerning people recognize talent when they see it. Am I thankful for that? You betcha. Head on over to YouTube to see it in all it's respective looping and violining glory (i.e. much bigger'n it is here).

Speechless. I think I may watch that a couple hundred more times. Thanks for hooking us up with such raw, impeccable talent. How amazing was that for you to witness? O that I could play like her. Emily inspired me to go a-searching through the toy box for our old echo mic like that. Isn't that what she was using?

You'll have to hear the whole album sometime, bro. She's done some other stuff, but the one that came offa this one is the best in my opinion.
