One Take // Fare Thee Well (Dink’s Song)

Love the song, decided to try my hand (and voice) at it. Have not done a One Take in a while, for those who don’t know it’s pretty simple, I record a song once and don’t re-record it. Gives me a place to make mistakes and publish imperfect things, which is kind of liberating. See old ones here.

A new One Take, because I don’t take myself very seriously and neither should you. 

*for anyone new around here the idea is i cover a song and only record one take, results are questionable and can be found here

Another One Take with Bettina and filmed by Aaron, if you missed our Weeknd Cover check it out as well! 


It was about a year ago that I had lunch with Aaron at The Meatball Shop, he was hungry to work more and I had recently been forced out of my role at Image Source. Well a lot has changed in a year and we finally got the chance to work together on a #one_take. See the lovely (and talented!!) Bettina Chin and me take on my favorite Weeknd song. Thanks again Aaron, my little project has never looked so pro!
