The best part of this awful day was seeing Alexi Murdoch on Carson Daly (of all places, I can’t stand Carson) But to see Alexi, to hear him perform, I would sit through anything.

Alexi stood with a microphone and his acoustic guitar as he performed All Of My Days off his new album Time Without Consequence. He seemed a little timid, a little uncomfortable (shall I say out of place even)

But still as usual he is amazing, his music is so meticulously crafted. Each song is a work of art. The lyrics, the voice, the notes and the emotion put into each song is just inspiring.

If you haven’t purchased his new album you should or look to see when he may be playing near you.
For those in the Los Angeles area, he will be doing a free in store on December 28th at Sea Level Records
If I find out any other shows I will post it here…
But until then I thought I would share a live recording of a performance from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia on Friday, July 7.

Listen Here

Track List:

“All My Days”
“Song for You”
“At Your Door”
“Orange Sky”
“Dream About Flying”

    I’m so glad you got to see Alexi yesterday. I was up late last night and saw that he was on Carson, and the first thing I thought of was you. I’m happy for you Rachel.
