Late Tuesday

Technically, this is part of my Family Book and CD/DVD Exchange for May, but since I haven’t even looked at the book yet, I thought I would post on Late Tuesday right now.

Let me introduce you to Dana, Jocelyn, and Tara of Late Tuesday, a trio out of Bellingham, WA. Of course, I don’t actually know them, but really, that is who they are (at least that is what their website and CD info told me!). You think I have a chance with Dana? She is cute! ;)

I was recently introduced to them by Erin and have enjoyed their heartfelt harmonies. Being male, as I am, some of the lyrics I can’t relate to, but they are still well written with great music behind them. The combination of their voices, piano, electric and acoustic guitar make for some good tunes.

Here are a few tunes of their most recent album: Remember We Forget.

To Not Be Let Down (3.39MB):

Lord only knows what you’re going through
Lord only knows how deeply you’ve been bruised
and i cannot tell you how much i am sorry
i wouldn’t wish this hurt on any friend
and all i can do is say that i’ll pray
and that i am glad i know you today
words might do little to ease your mind
’cause they are what caused so much pain at the time
so this is the least that i can offer
Lord only knows what you’re going through
just trying to keep going got stuff to do
but nothing in what’s happened seems fair
so you keep moving on and healing will come
it comes along
until then may friendships hold you together
words might do little to ease your mind
’cause they are what confuse things all the time
so this is the least that i can offer
picture God in all His glory He’s holding you still
and He loves you without end
picture heaven in its splendor
it’s nothing like this earth
where your love will not be let down

Simply Beautiful (2.72MB):

i can’t wait for you to give in to love
i can’t wait wait for you to get what you’re made of
won’t that change everything
won’t it make life more than it has seemed
won’t you see you weren’t made for nothing
you are beautiful
and i know you well
but i can only do so much for you
and i would do it all if i could just show you truth
you are beautiful

23 (3.25MB):

save me from wandering
carry me home
make me lie in pastures green
restore my soul
guide me on righteous paths
though i walk through shadows of death
i will fear no evil here for you are here with me
comfort me as i lay
prepare a table for me
surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life
and i will dwell in the house of the Lord forever

Good stuff, eh? If you want to buy some of their stuff (which I need to do!) head over to the Late Tuesday store. I have heard their Christmas EP rocks too. You could also sign up for their newsletter to download “exclusive” songs (including their awesome rendition of Alison Krauss’ Down to the River to Pray (3.19MB)).

They are playing over at The Q Cafe in Seattle this Friday (along with Sam Ashworth and Matt Slocum from Sixpence None the Richer), anyone want to go listen?


EDIT: See pictures from their June 10th, 2005 concert at Seattle’s Q Cafe.

    Thanks, just downloaded the album (all legal like). They have a kind of Jill Sobule thing going. Very good.

    Glad you enjoyed them! My sister said that their first album has some of the best harmonies she has heard, I guess I will have to get it!

    If they’ve got a ‘Jill Sobule thing going’ I’d definitely love to be there. Unfortunately it’s a little out of my way. I’ll have to listen online.

    By the way, wasn’t it Kramer who had to say “These pretzels are making me thirsty” in a movie that he was in?

    I haven’t heard Sobule (I don’t think), I guess I will have to check her out!

    Technically it was Kramer that had it first for his role in the Woody Allen film. All the cast ended up saying the line, and personally I think that George really captured the line. :)

    Hey Matt!
    I’m glad you found Late Tuesday. Considering I live in Bellingham.. it may be obvious (or not) that I know these girls. In fact, a former member - Caitlin Evanson - and I use to be roommates. I love these girls and have followed them since their inception.
    You should come down to Bellingham next time they play. Depending on the locale, it’s free sometimes.
    Tara is an amazing vocalist who has helped quite a few of the vocalists in our worship ministry at church too.
    Oh.. and if you want to check out the old member.. her website is (amazing talent I tell ya!!)
