You can’t really get much of a sense of a song from a lyric sheet, can you? But rehearsing a group and doing studio recordings is time-consuming, difficult and, for us rank amateurs, difficult. So, against all my gut instincts, I’ve started putting bedroom demo recordings of some of the songs that aren’t on the proper demo EP on Soundcloud. See https://soundcloud.com/martinashmusic/sets/bedroom-demos or take a look at the Music tab above. Yes, it’s all me through the wonders of a laptop with Audacity downloaded and a built in mic. And if you wonder why I bother overdubbing strings, well, basically to give the mistakes somewhere to hide. But hopefully it gives you more idea of what the songs sound like than no tracks at all. Maybe let me know what you think!
