A quick glance through my current set reveals repeated themes of both hard landings, and birds in flight.
“When you open up your eyes, for the second time, baby, brace yourself. Its happening now.” (From a song I wrote the day after a recent election).
“The messenger says take what you can, cause your days are numbered and the sun is just a big time bomb. Here we are.” From my optimistic song of landing, “Here we are.”
“Silhouette in the doorway, slurring words. Don’t know what to say so I run my fingers through those bad boy curls. As if snakes were birds”. From “Daniel.”
For more lyrics and original alt-folk, americana music come out to The Back Room, Thursday Aug. 10, 8pm. Also performing, my long-time hero and local legend, Tom Heyman, a wonderful, hard hitting songwriter and performer.
Tickets $15 in advance /$18 at the door.
