Karla Bonoff “Carry Me Home” (Music Video)

Carry Me Home is the title track and a new song from Karla Bonoff’s latest album, a definitive 16-track collection of acoustic versions of Karla’s most enduring songs. The song has all the elements of Karla’s best songs, that great voice that doesn’t seem to age, heartfelt lyrics and a beautiful melody. This video is produced by Sean McCue and Nina McCue, and was shot in Karla’s home in Santa Barbara.

1973 Opel GT California Custom

My father, Dan McCue, designed and built this beautiful and powerful hybrid car on the chassis of a 1973 Opel GT in Santa Barbara, California. The body has been masterfully re-imagined with the idea of form following function: Flared fenders to accommodate wide wheels and tires. Air intakes and outlets for brake cooling. Massive air intake for radiator and oil cooling heat exchangers. The hood has a gracefully sculpted NACA scoop to feed cool air to the naturally aspirated Weber carburetor, bolted to a ported Mazda RX-7 13B rotary engine. The driveline, brakes and suspension have been completely replaced with custom fabricated parts and RX-7 suspension elements. The custom free-flow exhaust makes quite a throaty roar.

LIVE on KTYD 99.9

Keep-the-Beat-Radiothon

I had the pleasure of participating in the “Keep the Beat” Radiothon to help raise money and encourage the donation of musical instruments for kids in the unified school district of Santa Barbara. Michelle Beauchesne and I went down to KTYD 99.9 and visited with the wonderful Lin Aubuchon & Bill Pesso who were hosting the Radiothon. There was a brief interview and we played an acoustic version of the Summercamp hit “Should I Walk Away” and our spin on the U2 song “Beautiful Day“.

 

 

 

Two Tickets to Paradise

Well over a decade ago I was asked to record a version of Eddie Money’s Two Tickets to Paradise for a film. As a lark I got together with some from friends one day at my house and recorded this: https://seanmccue.bandcamp.com/track/two-tickets-to-paradise

Two Tickets to Paradise by Sean McCue

It didn’t make it into the final cut of the film, and as a result has been sitting on the shelf for years. I figure now is an appropriate time to share the fun time that was had that day. Thank you Eddie… Rest in Peace.
