The Rollin' Rust - Sunsets Live

James VanDeuson and the rest of The Rollin' Rust band locate an old summer camp James worked at as a teenager and retrofitted it into a recording space for the afternoon. What they came out with was nothing short of magical. Performing live in just two takes, the band gets in and out before the mosquitos finish the Rollin' Rust off for good.

Everything Else | Website: https://www.therollinrust.com/ Lyrics: Sunsets I was running on running out Scanning faces in a media town They were all the same Checking on every account In their name I felt like a fish in a big bowl of booze Swimming in circles baby all around you Couldn’t make me a meal If I gave you a list for the store You were looking for the sunset You were looking for someone I do not know You were quick to ask for change From the one who's not the same here anymore Shakey hands and the zipper don’t zip Trying it on when the jacket don’t fit You’re alone out there Even when you’re all bundled up Love is a feeling that lasts for the year A lifetime of seasons and familiar fear Once you got what you need You’re tricked into wanting something more You were looking for the gold out there What’s wrong with growing old and good enough You were asking all your questions When the answer wasn’t really all that tough It’s a feeling i Can’t shake That we’re part of some Parade So I will dance around And wave Until it’s done You give it all up, 'til you’re naked and wet Starting from scratch Full of regret You’re an infant now Open those eyes to the world Some will tell you that it’s god Some will tell you what you didn’t want to hear Well I’m no sunset I just never felt like it all was far Yeah I’m no sunset It's just nice to feel that way Before it’s dark #newband #folkband #folkmusic #indiefolk #folkrock

Everything Else | Website: https://www.therollinrust.com/ Lyrics: I bought a ticket and a bottle of tequila A reason to go and a reason to stay My oh, these bloodshot eyes Could use a good reason to open today I sold what I had to buy what I didn’t It doesn’t make sense to keep it all in Love was a joke, until it wasn’t funny I need a good reason to get away quick Now I’ve got all of California in my rearview I got Colorado weed inside my glovebox I’ve got that Arizona sunset polaroid to guide me home Never needed a good reason to go I met a good man who lived inside the bottle Asked him for help and a reason to live He said, “you only got one as much as I remember. If that ain’t a reason, I don’t know what is.” Only time itself doesn’t miss a moment I’m scared to death of living half a life I’m happy you’re here to hear all about it It might be a reason to stay for a while Now I’ve got all of Ohio in my rearview I got Georgia on my mind I’ve got that mind set right on Texas Might go see the Alamo Never needed a good reason to go Maybe I was born to run Like some Springsteen song When I see you out here dancing I have to admit I can’t think of one good reason to quit Now I’ve got all of California in my rearview I got Colorado weed inside my glovebox I’ve got that Arizona sunset polaroid to guide me home I never needed a good reason to go Never needed a good reason to go, oh no Never needed a good reason to go

Warm Audio // James VanDeuson Live "Rollin' Rust" - WA12 MKII / WA-87 R2

An emotional, live performance of “Rollin’ Rust,” a song written and recorded by folk singer-songwriter, James VanDeuson. Written about the trials of leaving home and living on the road to pursue one’s dreams, “Rollin’ Rust,” poetically conveys the sacrifices one must take in order to make it in today’s over-saturated music industry. By using Warm Audio’s WA12 MKII Black preamp, in conjunction with the Warm Audio WA-87 R2 microphone, James was able to bring a miniature studio into the field, allowing for high-quality audio on the go. Recorded live at The Center for the Arts in Homer, NY. “The remarkable tone of the WA12 preamp, mixed with the classic sound of the new WA-87 R2, gives you the perfect audio combination. Warm Audio grants artists like me the ability to produce content that connects with listeners seamlessly. Warm gear quite simply sounds natural with no distractions. Thanks to Warm Audio, we can achieve that kind of quality without having to visit a studio every time we feel creative, at prices that we can actually afford. I’m eternally grateful for this brand and I’m proud to be working with them. We need more audio companies who think about artists first.” - James VanDeuson Credits: Audio - Recorded, mixed and mastered by James VanDeuson Video - Produced and shot by Rebecca Girouard, edited by James VanDeuson Location - The Homer Center for Arts - Homer, NY Gear - Warm Audio - WA12 MKII Black pre-amp and the WA-87 R2 large-diaphragm condenser microphone.

James VanDeuson - Red White Black and Blue | NPR Tiny Desk Contest 2021

Written by James VanDeuson shortly after the United States Capitol was attacked by the insensitive and barbaric group of radicalists. "Red White Black and Blue," calls out the United States of America for its history of police brutality and capitalistic bias within its own political system. Filmed by Rebecca Girouard, his lovely girlfriend on their apartment's roof. Produced by James VanDeuson and Rebecca Girouard Written by James VanDeuson Mixed by James VanDeuson Mastered with hope by James VanDeuson Follow Me Please, please: Facebook: @therollinrustband Instagram: @therollinrustband Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/7qGMenVvkX1IB9U8sXJOtV?si=V9QYQHotQoWaQe1jz2lwjQ&nd=1 Everything Else | Website: https://www.therollinrust.com/ Lyrics: Red White Black and Blue The healthiest home I ever saw Kenny Shaw flipped off his mom She said right back, I’m sorry son For acting like an ass It's just, your brother threw a can of beans Broke right through the window screen I knew he was kind of mean He gets that from his dad Well, America you're great As the families you create I saw you Red white black and blue Your politics they're right on par With southern pride and fear of god You could have passed but you had to draw From every house that needs new windows The rich supported by your laws Your columns bought on Amazon There's a virus in the capitol The kind with no vaccine It's just, America my doubt Lies with bodies you won't count Well, we saw them Red white black and blue There's good ones dressed in uniform There’s also murderers in uniform Camouflaged and given guns They park right at your stations But there’s hope in every child’s eye That someone calls out every lie And takes that gun from everyone Who’s hunting with a badge It's just, America Your crime rests with all the stolen time We saw them bleeding black And that's true There’s broken glass Out on the street Cryin' out in poverty Johnny's debt is crippling Your war is not just overseas I’m hoping you can sleep at night Knowing what is wrong and right It's time that you finally sign Some paper with a spine And some heart Well, America my hope You go and help who you provoke And we'll be waiting Red white black and blue
