This Week’s Video

Kitchener Blues Fest in Canada

This week we are showing you a video taken at the Kitchener Blues Festival in Ontario Canada. This song “From Far Away” has been brewing for several years. I had the verse, chorus, and bridge/solo section when I took it to the band, but it wasn’t a fully realized song. Jordan and Simon helped flesh it out musically and melodically, until we arrived at what has become one of my favourite original songs. We knew pretty early on that this was going to kick off the album, as it definitely takes aspects what I’ve done before, and then kicks it up a level. I’m a big lover of science, humanism and their related philosophies. Lyrically I have known for a long time that I wanted to do something inspired by Carl Sagan’s incredible and inspiring monologue “Pale Blue Dot” – this song is my tribute to his beautiful, stirring words. A little nod to the Allman Brothers and maybe even Santana in the solo sections.
