Switchblades & Serenades by Sterling Wormwood


A real rough demo I recorded today of a song I wrote yesterday. It’s about a peeping Tom in 1950s America after a bomb is dropped. I may stretch this concept out into an entire record. But for now, I’m focusing on getting the first one out on wax this fall on my own label (Balladeer Bedlam). Stay tuned.

This is also my one hundredth post. Congratulations to me.

  1. I am liking this! Great folk feel, but dark, and poetic. You have a really intriguing voice, it’s powerful and enigmatic. And killer song concept.

    Thank you for liking my post on Jazz and following my blog! Wouldn’t have got to hear your music!

  2. Awesome!!! I checked you out out of courtesy and I’m smitten-kitten, you have a beautiful voice, are absolutely hilarious. I can’t wait to have more time to read/listen to your stuff, instant fan brah for really reals! Thanks for the follow also, what a lucky gal I is o_O

      • I’m a prolific documenter of my artistic development, although I’m not sure how much of it I’m truly satisfied with. I do have a real honest-to-goodness record coming out though. I’ll keep you posted and mail you a copy when the time comes. Hope you like vinyl.

      • What a way to sum yourself up. Vinyl? Hell yes, old school all the way. You make me think, if a very tanked Rufus Wainwright made out with Jeff Buckley and together they made a spit baby that they incubated in Tom Waits right side of the brain, it’d be you in there, gnawing away at his receptors. 🙂 Keep me posted!
