Robert Sarazin Blake — “My Town, Your Town.”
Americana Highways presents this premiere of Robert Sarazin Blake’s song “My Town, Your Town,” from his forthcoming album. It was recorded by Andy Rick at Curios Clarion in Bellingham, WA; and mixed and mastered by Marc L’Esperance in Vancouver, BC. This is part of an ongoing collaboration between Blake’s songwriting and the exciting horn embellishments of Thomas Deakin.
“My Town, Your Town” is Robert Sarazin Blake on vocals and guitar; Meg Yates on vocals; Andy Rick on bass, pedal steel, electric guitar, and drums; Aaron Harmonson on upright bass; and Thomas Deakin on horns. Strap on your lap belts for a pleasurable sonic ride. This song is just wonderful. The spoken word poetry with the dawning hope of the horns are pure innovation, and all with the appropriate restraint.
“My Town, Your Town’ is an exploration into the loneliness of isolation and a celebration of the necessity of each other. Released on the two year anniversary of the marching band of life coming to a halt with the arrival of the covid pandemic, the song is an acknowledgment of what we’ve been through and a rally cry for human connection. The narrator can hear the marching band in his head but he can no longer see, touch or feel others in the world around him. — Robert Sarazin Blake
