Rick Faris — “What I’ve Learned”
Americana Highways presents this premiere of Rick Faris’s song “What I’ve Learned,” from his forthcoming album The Next Mountain, due to be released on November 5. The Next Mountain was produced, engineered and mixed by Stephen Mougin at Dark Shadow Recording. Mastering is courtesy of David Glasser. R. Faris co-wrote the song. Rick Lang was the co-writer.
“What I’ve Learned” is the lead track on the album. Musicians on the track are Rick Faris on lead vocals and guitar; Laura Orshaw on fiddle; Harry Clark on mandolin; Russ Carson on banjo; Zak McLamb on bass; Justin Moses on tenor vocals; and Eddie Faris on baritone vocals.
It’s important to reflect on what we’ve learned. Without reflection, what kind of human life are we living? Rick Faris addresses this phenomenon with upwellings and spaces. What if the best lesson to learn is the we know nothing at all. Thus, the stage is set for a philosophically rich album.
A humble spirit and learning heart keeps one running forward. Life’s lessons are everywhere if you’re looking for them. Keep telling yourself that fortitude and kindness pay off, have patience with yourself and others, trust the process, love the journey and be willing to change. — Rick Faris
