Last month, I returned to The Recording Company in Upstate New York to track a new song I recently wrote called "Old Glory." Tim Lynch engineered and co-produced it with me, and he also added Wurlitzer. This was my first foray into recording anything outside of a band context, and while it was in many ways a nerve-racking experience, I had some things I wanted to sing about and this seemed like the most personal and direct mode of getting it out into the world. More generally, I made a goal to myself late last year to create as much art as I can, whether it be music, writing, photography, or anything else, and to put it out there. The act of creating and sharing can be intimidating, but in a world that suddenly feels very chaotic and awash in bitterness and darkness, I wanted to challenge myself to shed my own rays of light as best I know how.
This is going to be a big year for the band, with some very exciting things in the works that we can't wait to share soon. In the meantime, check out "Old Glory" and let me know what you think in the comments below. I'd love to hear your feedback.
Spread light and love,
