FRIDAY MARCH 20TH!
I’m releasing my very first single called “CARRY ON” Friday, March 20th! It’s actually the first song I wrote and what I played at the bluebird cafe’s open mic night in Nashville, Tennessee when I visited there the summer of 2018. I had the opportunity to record it live at the famous Ryman Auditorium during the same visit as well. While it’s evolved since then, I’m incredibly thrilled to be singing the vocals on and co-producing this NEW recording of my very first song: CARRY ON.
CARRY ON is special to me because it’s a song that is inspired by the things my grandmother used to say to me. It includes lyrics based on her approach to life when things get tough, for instance she always used to say “Nice things take time.” While it’s a personal song to me, I believe it embodies a spirit of its own that a lot of people will relate to.
CARRY ON is a lighthearted acoustic song, and has an upbeat and hopeful feel with lyric about carrying on no matter what. It has a foot on the floor beat, with a modern twist, and is reminiscent of the dance barn band sound from the time early country got it’s roots. CARRY ON fits in the Folk Americana genre but it sounds fresh. If it were in a category of its own I’d call it “Nostalgic Folk Americana” or “Thowback Pop.”
