How I wish, how I wish you were here.

We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl,

Year after year,

Running over the same old ground.

What have we found?

The same old fears.

Wish you were here.

[Wish You Were Here — Pink Floyd]

[Hi — Wrenn]

To all my funky music lovers out there — this artsy lady has an EP in store that is bound to blow our minds and knock off our socks.

But….she needs backers. Wrenn has a great future, and I selfishly want to enjoy all of her creations.

Think of it as unlocking a bonus feature on a video game level. But the game is life. And the level is Year 2014. And the bonus is awesome art.

So, if you dig her vibes, pre-order the album to make this a reality. Come on. Just Kick It.

Sometimes I Pray…

"Here’s my heart, Lord

Take and seal it

Seal it for thy courts above.”


[Baby Tomorrow (I’m Coming Home) — Drew and Ellie Holcomb]

[The Lord Is Gracious and Compassionate — Weekend Worship]

So…not the highest quality, but it’s the only version I could find that didn’t have an overly-breathy female vocal.

This song is a new favorite of mine, reminding me of how I am not the point. My striving, my sin, and my silliness — none of it is the point.

Jesus is The Point.

Forecastle 2014 OEB Spotlight: Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors – “The Wine We Drink”


Pairs Well With…Jeremy Messersmith, Ryan Adams, Jackson Browne


Forecastle has nicely tapped into the Nashville/Memphis talent pool this year, including booking folk-soul artists Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors to close out the WFPK Port Stage at 8:30 on Saturday night.  Whether one is travelling from Band of Horses, Dwight Yoakam or Johnnyswim to catch the band’s performance, it’ll be a smooth transition to Holcomb’s alt country songwriting style.  Holcomb’s latest is 2013’s Good Light, the band’s strongest record to date, understated yet precisely produced.  It’s a lyrical record – Holcomb uses muted tones to let his rich voice carry the majority of the songs on Good Light.  This is a good thing.  Holcomb is a truly talented songwriter, loading his songs with naturalism and true-to-heart reflections.  If Good Light is an introduction, you can dig back from there – Holcomb is on his eighth release, including a couple live collections and even a Christmas record, all of which follow similar traditions to Holcomb’s consistently plaintive, emotional style. 

Glad to see one of my favorites getting highlighted :)

I have looked these words up twice in three days. Gotta keep vigilant on my grammar-ing.

Toe-curling, spine-shivering goodness.
