Songs about Places

Today's selection comes from my newest album, Embers (2021). Going Nowhere is about growing up in a small town without hardly experiencing the world beyond. It's based on a true story. 

    This is a place without a postcard 
    A speck on the map if you look hard
    A church and a bar and a hundred used cars
    All parked in the front yard

The B-side of today's single comes from my 2017 album Weather Patterns. Still Life is basically the sequel to the song above, even though I wrote this one first. It's about recognizing just how big, beautiful and diverse the world really is. This song is also based on a true story.

    There's got to be something better than this
    But what we've never seen, we can never miss

Enjoy. Share. Be well.
