We’re changing the way we approach our Sunday Morning Music posts. For the next several months, these posts will be authored by artists so you can get a glimpse into what inspires them. We hope you enjoy today’s post from our friend, Drew Holcomb.
Once every few years, I hear a song that I immediately have to play over and over. It happened for me with Dawes’ record, Nothing is Wrong, while driving through the Smoky Mountains. I bought the album on a recommendation from a trusted friend. I had already replayed 2 other songs on the record as I listened through. But when I got to the final track, “Little Bit of Everything,” I could not quit replaying it. 5, 6, 10 times?
There was something about the the subtlety of human emotion in Taylor Goldsmith’s delivery. It’s the quiet melodrama of the piano. It’s the lyrics – the story of 3 humans, totally unrelated, but all carrying the weight of human suffering and joy, trying to find their way in a world that we can only scratch the surface of understanding. Then I saw them open for Mumford & Sons at the Ryman. Humble, confident, keeping the flame alive.
