about

A friend had loaned me a Nashville strung guitar that I hadn't gotten around to playing. I picked it up one summer afternoon and started finger picking - the timbre and bright sounding strings were so cheerful and sweet, the song kind of wrote itself! Caught in a wistful day dreaming moment, my lyrics are a love letter to someone, with hope of returned love.

"Love Song" is a spritely love letter that sits right in the pocket of California folk and Canadiana, written and performed on a shimmery high strung acoustic guitar. It takes listeners through a lush toe tapping arrangement echoing bluegrass and country styles with dreamy harmonies, watery electric guitar, slick standup bass and playful percussion.

Recorded in North Hollywood, Los Angeles, California

lyrics

I wrote a love song just for you
and planted it in the garden
I hoped one day that it would bloom
I’d find you nestled in the branches

Ooo, ooo

I climbed a mountain just for you
and etched your name on the side
I hoped the winds would summon you
and bring me to your mind

ooo, ooo

oh don’t wait too long
to hear my love song

I wrote a letter just for you
and in between the lines
In my neatest hand my love poured true
maybe some day you’ll reply

Ooo, ooo

I wrote a love song just for you
and planted it in the garden…
