Live at Cafe Nervosa: ‘Avalanche [Ryan Adams Cover]’

In 2010 i was asked by the ‘Maiden City Festival’ to play a few sets around town. One of these sets was to take place in the cafe that is built on to the Nerve Centre [and a cafe i frequented at the time] called ‘Cafe Nervosa‘. I did an hour+ setlist here that encompassed solo music i had released, a few cover songs and then a few brand new songs. At the time, this was my favourite Ryan Adams song, and whilst it’s still definitely up there in the top five – it has since been displaced. Back in these days i used to open a bottle of red wine and jam his songs all night long – like, 6 hours+. My voice and ryans voice are nothing alike, but in this song i feel like it suits both of us and both our versions work.
