Story behind the song
Started out as an acoustic piece and, with my engineer, Bob Kelly, built it into a bigger production. I usually play guitars, sometimes bass and, in this case string lines. I bring my arrangements to Kelly's digital studio and we enter it into his recording software to get the tracks started. Bob Kelly Studio Recording
