Sing Along: I Get So Scared
"I Get So Scared" is special for a couple of reasons. It is the oldest song on the new record and was the one song I felt needed to be brought back and re-recorded and dusted off a little bit. I wrote it while living in Austin and playing with my friend Nick Welp. We called ourselves The Tease and the Terror.
Like a lot of young musicians we were broke and couldn't afford a legitimate practice space long term, so we got an outdoor storage unit to use as a rehearsal space. Then we got kicked out of that storage unit because we were right next to an extended stay hotel and the guests nor the management appreciated the melodious sounds emanating off the concrete and steel. Then we moved to a different storage unit where the management was much more chill and we set up shop. This was one of my first adventures in home recording (or storage unit recording--same thing). You can see the old iMac in the corner of the photo. This picture is of the only "gig" we ever had. In a storage shed. For two people.
I've always liked "I Get So Scared" and the guitar sounds and harmonies were fun to develop on the new version. Listen to I Get So Scared available on RESCUE now:
