Nils Lofgren "You In My Arms"
Here's a homegrown video made by my friends Nick Mead and James Roddy. They were at our home working on another project and offered to shoot this. "You In My Arms", a favorite bonus track of mine from the "Face the Music" box set I wrote early on while dating Amy. Kind of a hoot, we hope you'll enjoy it! — Peace and Believe, Nils


Nils Lofgren "Play With Fire"
Hello everyone- I had the opportunity to play in a fabulous house band at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tribute concert to the Rolling Stones. I did my own version of a favorite, "Play With Fire" and here is my original demo I sent out to the band.
It's primitive but has a good feel and I wanted to share it with you all.

Listen onine:

Nils and Clarence

Nils Lofgren: Miss You "C"
I've been singing Miss You "C", a different, acoustic version of Miss You Ray, ever since we lost my dear friend and bandmate, Clarence Clemons. Recently I redid the album version with these new lyrics to honor Clarence. Jamison Weddle at Studiocat Productions (Old School engineer) recorded and remixed it with me. My dear friend Dave Marsh premiered it on his Sirius/XM Radio show, and now it is available to all of you as a free download here. I hope you enjoy it - it's intended to reflect our deep love and appreciation for Clarence's music, life and friendship.

A while back I recorded this home version of Bruce's great ballad, "If I Should Fall Behind" for my friends Mark And Mia Rothbaum's wedding day. It is a favorite of theirs and they wanted to play it at their ceremony. The guitar and vocal is a live performance and I added the rest. Hope you enjoy it!

This is an alternate version of Neil Young's classic song that I recorded on "The Loner - Nils Sings Neil".  It's one live take on my Takamine run through a loop station, which allowed me to loop a rhythm progression and do an extensive jam in the solo section. Billy Wolf (who mixed and mastered the CD and this track) and I decided as a genre, to label it "jam folk".  Hope you enjoy it.

My dear friend Clive Cussler's fiancé Janet asked me to write a song for their wedding. Clive and Janet Cussler are now happily married and "Heaven's Rain" is the song. Having been a huge fan for decades of Clive's genius as a writer, which he continues to share in his magnificent books and a friend for 20 years, I felt I had a special insight and I am proud of the song. Amy and I are grateful for Clive and Janet's friendship and proximity. (we all live here in Scottsdale, AZ.) We hope you enjoy the song.(mixed by Jamison Weddle and mastered by Billy Wolf)

This is a demo of a song I wrote about 9-11, honoring the love, courage and spirit of the victims and their families. Having been unable to complete it for my CD, I felt it was time to share the original demo.

Here is a basement demo of Sam Cooke's classic tune.

"DAY BY DAY" (mp3)
A few years ago I did a live "country" style studio session  for fun and exploration with some good friends in AZ. In his Chaton Studio, Otto D'Agnolo with Jamison Weddle as assistant set us up, engineered and mixed the sessions. Mike Smith played pedal steel, Mike King played upright bass and Gary Bruzzese played drums. All friends and great players, it was a wonderful adventure for us. I think we did 8 songs in two days and we kept it fun and live. It was pretty much a group production because I wanted everyone to add their own ideas and play parts they created and felt connected to. I've picked two songs to share in this free download for you."Dalmation" is an old song about a fireman and his love for his lifesaving dog that I've been wanting to share for 40 years! This song may seem corny to some, but for animal lovers like myself, it rings true. "Day By Day" is another old tune I've sang occasionally in acoustic shows but had never recorded. I hope you enjoy the music.

This is a home demo of a song that is of a very personal nature. I demo’ed it during the Sacred Weapon sessions and wanted to share it with you. It's one of my first compositions on bottleneck guitar, the bottle neck acoustic and lead vocal is a live studio performance, hope you enjoy it.

Holiday Song Downloads (mp3)
A number of years ago here in Arizona, my good friend Otto D'Agnolo (great engineer and producer, etc.) helped create these Christmas song versions (one per year, over 3 years) for our local UCP Foundation. (United Cerebal Palsy) The Cd's were called Merry Arizona and featured Christmas song versions by local artists. The duet on Silent Night is with Margo Reed. We hope you enjoy them!
