new music: begin again
hey...so, awhile back i promised some new music...well, in true JS fashion, i've lagged on that....but i'm happy to say your wait has come to an end. you can click here to listen to a demo of a new song called 'begin again'.
sharon always likes me to clarify the story of this song when i sing it for people. well, first off...i love my front porch, and about a year ago i decided to spend some time writing songs whilst (did you like that?) sitting out there. i have trouble sometimes, getting started on songs...and on this particular day i was noodling around (technical term) on my guitar and could hear my neighbors arguing with each other really loudly. this ended up becoming a pretty regular occurrence. in fact, they ended up splitting up, which is really sad. i felt a little guilty having a front row seat to the demise of their relationship, but the whole experience really made me think a lot about how people start at a place of love and bliss and then end up hating each other...or at least acting like it. the verses really go through that emotion, but the chorus kind of answers it with hope that tomorrow will be a better day, if we just hang on. i like songs that offer hope...you know? any how...here it is. i hope you enjoy it. leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.
