I write a lot of songs about love. Matt mentioned that after he had listened to both my albums all the way through, and he was right.
I have written songs for people through the years, sometimes they deserved them (sometimes they didn’t), but all the songs were hopeful for the existence of — the persistence of — the ability to accept — love — in whatever form it may come in.
These songs are not just love letters, but they are kind answers to the faithless ruminations of a cynical, questioning, contracted mind. They say let someone see your most true & joyful self. Let someone bring you out of your shell over and over again until you live there permanently.
This song is my newest to date, played on my baritone ukulele: “You May Be Just What I Need.”
