Song #4: “Daylight”: My first-ever full-length solo concerts happened in November 2011, and I’m very happy that we were able to videotape them. This is a live performance of the song “Daylight,” written by the wonderful Mike Errico.
“Daylight” is a post-breakup song unlike anything I’ve ever written (mine have tended toward the melancholy). Maybe it’s a female vs. male thing, maybe not…but in any case I’ve always been drawn to this song, and I think it sounds best with all the pronouns/gender references as Mike originally wrote them.
Song #3: “Patiently”: This is what happens when you write a song on piano when you’re barely out of your teens and then reinvent it for looping violin twenty years later. Read full blog entry here.
