I came from a tiny community of weirdos, huddled together in dark, loud nightclubs, in a freak of a town. When I moved to the big city, and was suddenly buffeted in immense clouds of faceless people and traffic, it was really scary. Every face I saw, whether static, opposite me on the train, or smearing past in a millisecond from the window - I was acutely aware that they were all someone I would never know. Feeling isolated, but aware of so many lives, all affecting each other in unknowable ways. That’s what this song is about.
Featuring the stunning production/synths of Andy Sorenson - https://www.andysorenson.com (Thanks for making my music beautiful.)

This is one of my easiest songs to play, and a great place to start with percussive guitar.

Thanks for listening, watching and perhaps even sending this song to somebody. Please stay safe over the coming weeks as we crush this pandemic and rediscover life. My next video will be along soon.
