When I Lay Me Down

We just released the new single "When I Lay Me Down" . You may have heard part of the song in Episode 8 of Fumbling Thru the Pieces-the song seamlessly fits Ellie and Vince's situation.

Marcella DuChene wrote a beautiful letter of apology from one spouse to another, apologizing for the craziness in her world. She can't seem to say or find the words but feels them so deeply none the less. I crafted the idea of the letter into a song and Eric helped me put the music together. Maybe it is how or where we were raised but the song takes us back to a simpler time in life maybe back to Effingham, or Marcella's Redford Township, and Illinois and friends we group with and a family we adore....I don't know if I can really explain..but we were so touched when we heard the final mix.. we cried..a good cry...a connected cry...maybe mourning the passing of youth and other times or maybe just remembering it fondly. At any rate, Marcella and Eric and I hope you enjoy listening to it half as much as we enjoyed writing and recording it.

Til next time,

What Momma don't know can't hurt!

It's getting Wild!

Eric and Ian and I will be in the studio tomorrow night recording tracks for a new song for the CD. Hopefully we will finish all of the tracks within the next few days. We are getting closer to putting out that CD. We just started writing another tune as well. You guys are the best and we appreciate all the support!

Keep Rockin

Okay, we cheated... we got together last night to work on the new song so we could do NOTHING today. Not a bad plan...I'm just saying..somebody has to think of this stuff! It is pouring down rain so I am going to have lunch, pick up firewood and veg-out

Oh- My -God,


The Hursts

Eric and I will try to work in the AM tomorrow on a new song we will be adding to the CD. You know weekend mornings are rough as hell. Wake up and kill my alarm clock-my clock's name is Moshi and sometimes she just drives me crazy...short trip. This new tune is a song that was inspired by Eric reflecting on a friend and how things are wild then we all grow up...I still like it wild....I'm just saying...anyway I think you'll like it. It really takes you back to earlier times and wilder nights.

for now,
