“Five Hundred Miles Away”   Is a gentle reminder to us to keep in touch with the ones we love.

Released yesterday 9/21/18. 

Ed Amann and his virtual band Podunk are back with a gently jangly reminder that we must take the time to keep in touch with those we hold dear.   The band on this is pretty much the familiar Podunk line up with the lead guitar duties handled by the one of a kind Ray Lay 12 string.

“Five Hundred Miles Away” has been a staple at Ed’s live shows for a couple years.   The song is usually performed on acoustic twelve string at these shows.  The possibility of a similar “unplugged” version was considered for this release but the band won out.



8/11/18  It's only taken me a whole bunch of years as a performer to realize that folks may have trouble pronouncing my name.  It is one of those that if you hear it you will spell it wrong and if you see it you will say it wrong.  All that said it is my name so, here's an audio clip of how to pronounce it.

How to pronounce my name.

I decided to make some memes of my own for sharing:



* Oral tradition means that in nearly all cases the songs are performed from memory without the use of cheat sheets, teleprompters or backing tracks.
