[Ball of Wax 31, as previously announced, will feature 15 local songwriters and bands all covering each other’s songs. Between now and the release show on March 9th, I will share the originals with you to provide a little background, and perhaps a deeper appreciation of the CD and show. (Which is March 9th. Did I mention that? March 9th. Columbia City Theater.)]
Bret Alain Phillips has been an occasional Ball of Wax contributor since way back on Volume 3, which opens up with his band Oldman Winter’s track “20 Questions.” I’m very pleased to have him back under his own name for number 31. From Bret’s substantial catalog, Alicia Amiri selected the song “Winder Downs” from his first (I think?) solo album, Fairest, Eden. The Grand Facade, his next album, should be out very soon.
