“Don’t ya get me wrong. I’m right here, humming along. When I get me a little bit more, I’ll give you some.” This song will have you humming and singing along from the get go, with an easy breezy songwriting style.
I was talking on the phone with one of my best friends who happens to be a songwriter (Jordan Igoe). She and I were discussing life, gigs, and general struggles of making a living in the music business. I said, ‘Jordan, I’m alright, don’t get me wrong.’ She replied, ‘Okay, bud, now hang up and go write that song.’ I got off the phone and wrote the song. Songwriting friends are great motivators that way. I wanted a stomp-your-feet-at-the-jam-session kind of feel. The band surely delivers that. This is my backyard campfire jam song raising the vibe about common human struggles. – Danielle Howle
