New Song: Waking Up

I saw a band called City and Colour play at Webster Hall in early April, and the lead singer, Dallas Green, wrote and sang such pretty songs; more intricate than I challenged myself to get. And so, inspired by his thoughtful and soulful art, I started to write this song. Which I actually finished while on a cruise with my family to Bermuda.

It’s my biggest leap in finger-picking so far, and I mess it up a few (many) times, but I’m okay with that. It makes it real, right? 🙂

Tonight I went to an open mic at a place called Pete’s Candy Store in Willamsburg, Brooklyn, and I’m anticipating playing there next Sunday. With my new guitar (the one you see here) tentatively–any most likely permanently–named Jane.
