April Light 02:55
Come you hard rain Wash the grit and grief away All these shuttered days Of losses borne alone Come on you hard rain Grow up the grass until the sidewalks break And let in April light Grow the grass until we’re rolling in it Roll Come you hard rain If it stings, all the better Now you’ve got my full attention All the better To drown the chatter Come on you hard rain Grow up the grass until the sidewalks break And up pours April light Grow the grass until we’re rolling in it Roll Come you hard rain Take what you need, just bring relief Bless me, I am clean Bless you, and I set you free Come on you hard rain Up grows the grass Until we’re rolling in it Until the sidewalks break

October Snow 04:23
White noise and worry became our daily bread How are you still standing beautiful and brave The early flakes break on the way to the ground Primed before their time White noise it covers What's done and what's to come One you can't reckon and one you can't see Caught between truth and the better story Spinning in the air Old whispering soul You try to lure me home When you know you know you never give as good as you've taken And your honey tongue is only salting the wound Salting the wound Every day breaks on a newborn breath All is forgive and so we forget The early flakes break on the way to the ground Spinning in the air Old whispering soul You try to lure me home When you know you know I've never been as good as I've played it And your honey tongue is only salting the wound Salting the wound Old whispering soul Take me home

about

Hello and Happy Earth Day! And here are two new songs co-written with my great friend Russell Chudnofsky, with whom I have recorded and toured for many years. Russell and I wrote these at two very different points in the past couple of years ~ October Snow was recorded separately in our homes sometime in the beginning of lockdown, and April Light was recorded by Dave Westner at Woolly Mammoth Sound when it felt safe to be in a studio again. Both were mixed by Paul Kolderie and mastered by Nick Zampiello. Guest players on both are Joe McMahon on bass and organ, Chris Anzalone on drums, and Dean Fisher on additional guitar for October Snow. Also available on Russell's page: russellchudnofsky.bandcamp.com
Wishing you (and our miracle home planet) future health and peace.
With love! TD xx
