I am quite pleased to announce the release show for the next volume of Ball of Wax Audio Quarterly – a very special installment that will feature me and fourteen of my favorite local singers and songwriters all covering each other’s music, round-robin style.
For the Ball of Wax 31 CD, each of the above artists is recording a cover version of a song by another artist – names were drawn from a hat, in sequence, making for one big circle of covers (full sequences of who covers whom below). For the release show, each of the 15 performers will play two songs: their cover version and their original version of the song someone else covered – so throughout the night you will hear 2 different versions each of 15 songs.
We did this once before with a different crop of artists – way back for Volume 4 – and it was loads of fun. I’m really looking forward to sharing this CD and this very special night of music with you all.
