Through Nov 1st only, come download the MP3 and tab of Lara Ewen‘s new single, “Death Better Take Me Dancing”, for free and exclusively from Abatab. We couldn’t be happier and have even set aside a special page for the occasion: www.abatab.com/laraewen. After Nov 1st, the tab will be discontinued and you’ll be able to purchase the song on CD Baby. So download your free copy today!
About the song, LocalCorrespondents.com says, “Lara Ewen’s upcoming single, ‘Death Better Take Me Dancing’, is a bittersweet look at how we should be spending our final moments. It takes a brave person to broach the subject of death in song, and a remarkable one to set it to an upbeat tune that manages to convey both joy and strength.”
For those of you in New York City, Lara will be having a single release show at Rockwood Music Hall on Saturday, Oct 30 at 7pm.
It’s always great to welcome a new artist to the Abatab family, and I’m thrilled to have Lauren Zettler’s tabs on Abatab.com. Lauren writes some great songs and she’s a darn fine guitar player (and pianist), too.
If you’re not familiar with Lauren, you can take a crash course with a free download of her “Live in LA” album, plus a free download of her song “I Don’t Blame You”. One of my favorite of Lauren’s videos is for “Shapes”, which she submitted to Ellen DeGeneres’ “Bathroom Concert Series”:
This month’s free tab and mp3 were a happy accident. Nicholas Gunty began following Abatab on Twitter, and on a lark I checked out his music on his MySpace. I tend to be a bit leery of MySpace because it seems so rare to stumble upon someone great. But it turned out I loved Nicholas’ music from the start, especially this month’s song, “Veronica”. And I have a feeling it’ll be stuck in your head like it was mine. Check it out on our Free page, as always there’s no purchase necessary. Some handy links for Nicholas: MySpace – iTunes – Twitter
Want to spread the word about an emerging artist you love? Having a free tab on Abatab is great promotion, so feel free to let me know about your hidden gems at jeff[at]abatab.com. And I’ll send you a free tab of your choice from our catalogue just for the tip.
October marks our three-month anniversary! Thanks for being there from the start. See you next month!
