I am super excited that Grant wrote this song. The Harper Conspiracy and NW Firelight Singers bring it to life!
This psychedelic romp is a quintessential song for me. It is playful and funky and stems from my high school daze. The poem, Journey, was destined to be a song. It won me a scholarship to a writers conference at Western Washington University in the mid-80s.
“As simple as a flower and that’s a complicated thing.” Love and Rockets inspires me. Waves is simple and plush. It was an opportunity to play with complexity of melody and harmony while on a seesaw of two chords.
Arrow evolved over time. First penned decades ago. The band brushed off the cobwebs and re-worked it for the album.
“Picking up pieces of where I left off, something stirs inside me to start again. I’ve watched from shadows long enough…. my muscles are conditioned for the climb.”
This is version recorded with the NW Firelight Chorale. Filled with sonic goodness, listen for the resilience and fortitude in the collective voice!
Written with fire and metal in mind, this song is about alchemy. Creating something from substance. The outcome depends on the skill, effort and attention that goes into the creation.
Music centers our life. We wish our musical journey touches your life – inspires, encourages, and brings energy to you.
Hey friends, I am writing a series of blogs to introduce our new album, Forging Stories.
