Joey Beltram’s amorous contribution to Ball of Wax 35 came to me via a mutual friend who had collaborated with him in his current home of Cleveland. It seems Mr. Beltram had visited our fair state of Washington, written a whole album inspired by it (titled, appropriately enough, Hey Washington), and will soon be moving out here. I’m pleased to be able to introduce Seattle to Joey through “Bleed Through,” one of the songs from that album. Something about these lush, dense guitars, the simple progression, and the beautiful falsetto melody lead me to think this town will be very welcoming to Joey and his music. Check out “Bleed Through” below, and then go listen to the whole album.
