I finished this project back in November. Its inspiration comes from my current marriage for the most part, but it includes songs about relationships and experiences through many years.
Here I present a variety of arrangements from my original compositions about relationships. Most of them are written with my husband in mind, but two or three are about other significant relationships or encounters. Two are reflections from parenthood. We both had previous marriages that resulted in children. One of his children passed away as an adult three years ago. That was so very hard for us, but it was devastating for him. I felt I should acknowledge her in this work and pay tribute to her beautiful life. The two of them had such a tight and wonderful father/daughter bond. How does one go on with such loss? He’s a strong man and he presses on, but no one knows how deeply he grieves her passing. No one.
You can listen to recordings of the songs on your favorite streaming service. I set up a play list on YouTube as well for this album.
I hope you remember and cherish your relationships as you listen to or play the music from Songs About Us. The music is available on Amazon. -Will
