Beck's Song Reader at the Brick

In January, The Brick Theater hosted an event for Beck's Song Reader project, a songbook of original Beck tunes that have been left up to the fans to record and perform. They were kind enough to let me do the number "Eyes That Say 'I Love You'" for vocals and accordion.

  1. This is the version that made this song live for me. Passionate singing, and the wheezing, atonal drone of the accordion evokes dark, monomaniacal heartsickness. Brava!

  2. How kind, thank you so much! For some reason when I was playing through the songbook this one really grabbed me. The arrangement I settled on was actually inspired by a performance Beck gave many years ago of "Nobody's Fault But My Own" where he accompanied himself on harmonium. Really haunting and beautiful:
