Marc Cohn's at it again . . .  

Miles Away - Boulder, Colorado, 7/9/08 - A little sample of Shane's harmonica skills.  The sound is excellent, and for all of you out there with 20/20 vision, there's the added benefit of giving you the experience of what it's like to be nearsighted.

Now THAT'S the way to start out a Thursday morning (where I live, anyway).

On Friday, June 11, 2008, Marc and Shane played at the Botanic Gardens in Denver, Colorado.  It was the first time they had done so since the shooting that took place nearly three years ago, after a show at that same venue.  (The other two band members who played with them on June 11, Joe Bonadio and Jon Ossman, were not with them in 2005.)

Click here for to see a photo of a CD cover autographed by Marc and Shane, accompanied by a brief review of the sold-out show.

Very cool shot of Marc and Shane taken on July 16, 2008 at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington.  Marc opened for Aimee Mann.  I would have thought it would be the other way around, but I can't argue with an eyewitness account.

Shane reported, in part, in his newsletter of May 2006:

Quoted Text
It was recently brought to my attention, thank you Sophia, that a song I had written some years ago with my dear friend Randy Vanwarmer called Wives Don’t Like Old Girlfriends had been covered by an Australian husband and wife team, Camille Te Nahu and Stuie French. It turns out that they had a number one Country hit in their homeland and won awards also for their recording. You can hear a clip here – track 3 from the CD Not Without You.

Randy and I first had this song covered by Suzy Bogguss, a very well-respected female Country artist, on a duet album she recorded with Chet Atkins in 1994 called Simpatico. You can view the album cover in the 1994 area of my discography. What a thrill to have Chet Atkins play on a song of mine.

The version Camille and Stuie recorded is similar to the arrangement that Suzy and Chet used, and is also quite lovely - Camille with a lovely vocal and Stuie’s guitar playing, a veritable homage to Les Paul, yet sounding full of fire and individuality.


I couldn’t find video for the Suzy Bogguss version, but here’s Camille Te Nahu and Stuie French’s version:

Wives Don’t Like Old Girlfriends




Australian country music.  Who knew??

Going back to 2005 and Sting's Broken Music Tour (Josh Freese, Dominic Miller and Shane Fontayne).  Shane recounts in his blog entry of April 10, 2005:

Quoted Text
Dominic and I joined Sting at Boise State University yesterday afternoon, where he gave a master class to students majoring in musical composition.

(Josh would have joined us, but he had traveled home and back on our day off.)

There were about twenty students present and Sting talked about his writing process, his influences and inspiration, and we played several songs - Dom and me on acoustic guitars and Sting playing bass. The class lasted for an hour.

When Sting first called me about the tour, this was one of the first things he mentioned - that the thrust of the tour was to play colleges, but also to give these classes and share his/our experiences with the students. Even at that juncture, the intent was that we would hopefully participate as a band.
