Americana Highways brings you this premiere of Garrett Heath’s song “Same Old Story,” from his forthcoming album The Losing End, set for release on April 22. The album was engineered, mixed and mastered by Garrett.
All instrumentation on the record is by multi-instrumentalist Garrett Heath: vocals, harmonica, acoustic and electric guitar; bass, drum kit and piano. “Am I the man I’m meant to be?” launches the sorrow and struggle of some folks measuring their lot up agains the ideals of the American Dream. A song like this taps into the stirring of longing for more that can be a whole new beginning.
“Same Old Story” is the solitary cry of a broken man caught between the practical realities of his life and the dreams he’s been taught to chase since his childhood. For him, and a thousand other men like him in rural America, the American Dream is a relic of history, or at least a possibility only for those with some form of a privileged upbringing. The rest of us simply struggle in our daily grind to pay the heating bill and put food on the table for our children. But still, there’s a hidden beauty present if we can only find the strength to see it. — Garrett Heath
