The first full EP by BLOOD NEBRASKA entitled "ROMANCE" is now live on all online platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, etc. 

I have been conceptualizing this collection of songs for a long time. The 5 songs are saturated in the poetry, melancholy, sensuality, and atmosphere of all that is the mood of Romance.

Happiness & I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry

My mother asked me to write a happy song

I tried my best, but it came out wrong...

In between studio recordings, I'll be sharing some songs I'm tracking on my own. Here are 2 songs I think fit well together. 

"Happiness" and a simple shot at the Hank Williams Sr. classic "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry"

Check out the Youtube links below with lyrics in the expanded title area. 

I'm not much of an engineer or producer, but kind of feel these honest, messy recordings suit these songs well. Thanks for listening and sharing with others. 

"Happiness"




"I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry"



Songs are also up on Bandcamp right now: 
and will hit other platforms soon-ish.

BURY ME IN CALIFORNIA


"BURY ME IN CALIFORNIA" is the second professionally produced song from BLOOD NEBRASKA.

now available via online platforms like Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, etc.

Listen here



bury me in California
bury me beneath my debts
I gave it all to be an artist
then forgotten when I'm dead


mm hmm


spread my ashes across the country
from Minnesota to New Mexico
born in Nebraska, lived in Colorado
none of them I call my own


mm hmm


I gave it all to the love of my life
and she gave me my soul
at times a harsh and demanding wife
who'll lay me to rest in my home


bury me here in L.A.

where everyone means what they say
how your friends can't wait to see you
unless they're busy on that day


mm hmm


I once hoped for fame and fortune
have my ego stroked like the rest
but I'll die obscure in isolation
with my principles around my neck


mm hmm


I gave it all to the love of my life
and she gave me my soul
found me in the darkest of nights
and I'll never walk one more day alone


bury me in California

where my widow will love again

BADLANDS lyric video

The lyric video to the first single "BADLANDS"


BADLANDS


Here is the first 'official' release from BLOOD NEBRASKA.

"BADLANDS" was produced by Lucas Bakker
drums provided by David Adams 

Now available on all online platforms


driving forever, through nowhere
searching for friendly faces, but the future's clear
lost on an empty highway, where I can disappear
no one will know I'm gone for at least another year

mm mm in the Badlands
mm mm in the Badlands
where nothing survives

walking for miles, toward the setting sun
I'd steal me some gasoline if I had a gun
set fire to my car, and watch it burn
if only I'd asked her to dance, but I... I never learn

mm mm in the Badlands
mm mm in the Badlands
where nothing survives

I don't want no fun
I only want to share this desolation with someone

lost in the badlands, where I could disappear
weeping to an empty sky, oh God...
send someone here

credits

released November 23, 2019
written and performed by Jesse Dvorak / BLOOD NEBRASKA
produced by Lucas Bakker
drums performed by Dave Adams

STOLEN CAR


This is one of my favorite songs from Bruce Springsteen. I wanted to record my own version of it.




"Stolen Car"
I met a little girl and I settled down In a little house out on the edge of town We got married, and swore we'd never part Then little by little we drifted from each other's heart At first I thought it was just restlessness That would fade as time went by and our love grew deep In the end it was something more I guess That tore us apart and made us weep I'm driving a stolen car Down on Eldridge Avenue Each night I wait to get caught But I never do She asked if I remembered the letters I wrote When our love was young and bold She said last night she read those letters And they made her feel one hundred years old And I'm driving a stolen car On a pitch black night And I'm telling myself I'm gonna be alright But I ride by night And I travel in fear In this darkness I will disappear

BOOK OF LOVE

a home recording of "Book of Love" by The Magnetic Fields



lyrics: The book of love is long and boring No one can lift the damn thing It's full of charts and facts and figures And instructions for dancing [Chorus] But I, I love it when you read to me And you, you can read me anything [Verse 2] The book of love has music in it In fact that's where music comes from Some of it is just transcendental Some of it is just really dumb [Chorus] But I, I love it when you sing to me And you, you can sing me anything [Verse 3] The book of love is long and boring And written very long ago It's full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes And things we're all too young to know [Chorus] But I, I love it when you give me things And you, you ought to give me wedding rings But I, I love it when you read to me And you, you can read me anything
