So it goes…

Posted: March 23, 2019

At some point during the production of each of my last three albums I said it would be my last. But none of them were. Because this always happens. Inspired by the thrill of making music with great players I start writing again as soon as each project is recorded. In times past I might have delayed the latest album to put this song on it. This time I will be patient. But I like this song enough to stop calling the album I just finished – Looking At Life – my last. It’s not often you get to quote Leonard Cohen and Shakespeare in the same lyric. This follows a simple verse and chorus structure with a bridge in the middle. (I have had the line “Sad as an English seaside town in winter” kicking around for some time – glad it found a home.) The somewhat unusual aspect is the last section that musically will be its own thing.
