wild wind


friends,

 

tonight is episode 615. it's not much - just more me + new songs, + wrestling with the moment, self doubt, and the routine disappointment of life with ourselves.

 

some days just feel bad, i suppose.

 

the trick is to find a way through it,

make it a bit better,

maybe somehow redeem a piece here and there,

so on.

 

the playlist:

- cards (nearly final version, 2018)

- drifting (new demo, 2018)

- the last ditch (songs from the kitchen, 2009)

 

i'm sincerely thankful you're here.

 

i hope you'll listen.

 

love,

russell

the apple


friends,

 

the month of august is here, along with episode 614 . it's another week of me from my little song workshop... this one finds me surprised by a few happy accidents, and thankful for the strange experience of discovering meaning where you don't expect to.

 

the title for this week's episode ("the apple") wasn't consciously intended, but the whole garden of eden, eve and adam, book of genesis, parable feels just about right somehow.

 

i hope you'll listen.

 

tonight's playlist:

- wise bird (second demo, 2018)

- cards (new demo, 2018)

- upon consideration (a rough demo, 2018)

 

love,

russell

darkness


friends,

 

episode 613 centers around the feeling darkness. it's not something most of us feel comfortable talking openly about (which i say consciously, including myself)... which i suppose makes good sense?? true enough.

 

still, it feels important to say what it is when it is.

 

and all the better if it's in a song.

 

tonight's playlist:

- darkness (demo, 2018)

- wise bird (demo, 2018)

- hell is for heroes (lost demo, 2017)

 

i'm thankful you're here.

 

i hope you'll listen.

 

love,

russell

sincerely,
