Description: Originally I released “China Plates” as a single backed by an entire band – I had won a songwriting competition here in Buffalo and was awarded some studio time with session musicians, producers, the whole nine yards. It sounds great to this day, but that kind of production level conflicts with the entire message of the song. The whole point is that material possessions and fancy things aren’t what’s going to make you happy at the end of the day, and I felt like that needed to be true for the song’s production as well. This piano version on the album is by far my favorite rendition of the song – it’s simple and the message is clear.
