OCTA 18th Anniversary – Anthony Atkinson (encore)

Back to Melbourne, Australia for another song from Anthony Atkinson. His encore She Let Him In is an outtake from his 2006 album Loyalty Songs. It’s been a while, but if I remember correctly this song and this particular album was my introduction to his music and soon after I bought the earlier solo album and some The Mabels stuff too. Here’s some heavy storytelling from Anthony Atkinson.

OCTA 18th Anniversary – Drew Danburry (encore)

Next we go back to Missoula, MT for another song from Drew Danburry’s Yellow Seahorse Live Sessions. This is a really heavy song, but with a soothing title. The song is simply called Eliot Rosewater, Peter Weir, Buck Brannaman, Jason Anderson, Ralph Waldo Emerson and the Dalai Lama or the day I realized that I’ll never be who I want, but will always be who I am and that is sufficient. The song is an outtake from his excellent 2013 album Becoming Bastian Salazar.

OCTA 18th Anniversary – Evan Cheadle

This last day will be mostly full of encores from artists that have already appeared during this anniversary week, but we will have one or two new artists too with a wonderful late submission(s). First we travel on to Victoria, British Columbia to meet up with Canadian singer-songwriter Evan Cheadle. During the recent years you may have come to know him as the guitarist for The Deep Dark Woods, but he also has this fabulous and timeless solo material that I love dearly. Evan Cheadle’s contribution to this celebration is a beautiful version of Cold Cold Ground. Original can be found from his 2018 EP Chasing Shadows, which is a must listen if you love things like psychedelic folk, country blues, english ballads and baroque pop. And well who wouldn’t.
