[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.)]
The first track on Ball of Wax Volume 31 has Jeremy Burk and his band covering the song “Don’t Write This Song,” by the Glass Notes (Robb Benson and Jake Uitti) – originally released on their 2012 album As the Building Crumbles. Jeremy and co. do a great job of making this song their own while respecting the source material. But you really should hear the beautiful original (and, while you’re at it, the whole Glass Notes album).
