I am very excited to finally unveil my new song! I have been lost in this one for the past two weeks, trying to make it right since the topic is a little awkward. It’s still a tough one for me, but I tested it out last night on a live crowd at the best jam in town, The Grey Goat in Newmarket, and they loved it! (Thanks always to the band, Ryan Ainsworth for a beautiful slide solo and to Manny DeGrandis and Corey Richardson for rockin’ the rhythm section. xo)
So, I think this is gonna’ be one of the big tunes on my upcoming album. I just love singing it and it really has taken on a life of its’ own. It’s also the first song I completely wrote on the beautiful 1972 Martin D12-20 that my unbelievably generous Uncle just handed down to me about a month ago! Thanks Ted, I said I would dedicate my next song to you and even though this topic is totally not what I had in mind, today, this one is for you. I hope you like it, thanks.
It’s also for the very few people who know what the hell the song is about. Please accept my apologies, laugh, and know that I’m a compulsive writer and just couldn’t help myself!
I’ve made a rather egotistical-looking slide show to go with the song… but as my good friend Brad says, “If I see a girl singing on TV, I’m more likely to actually stop and continue listening if she looks hot!” Good advice, man, I’m taking it!
Thanks for listening!
