Do you like Singer/Songwriters, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!
'You and Jake', features on Evening Hymns 2012 album, Spectral Dusk and is a recent musical discovery that i've been kicking myself that I've never heard before. It is one of many personal, emotive, heartfelt songs that singer/songwriter Jonas Bonnetta has written in tribute to his late father. I read this and I wanted to sob:-
"This is one of the first songs that I wrote for Spectral Dusk and it was a turning point for deciding how personal I wanted to get with this record. Jake is my younger brother and Dad and him had a pretty amazing relationship. After Dad passed away, I went through a bunch of his stuff and found all these receipts he had kept from coffee shops and breakfast places and I had these strong images of him and Jake going out for coffee or breakfast before going to work on the sawmill for the day. The two of them always scheming a trip north to the moose hunting camp or dreaming of something. I’ve liked this idea of Dad still being here guiding me by setting a precedent in how he lived his own life. As if although he is gone, he is still there teaching me how to be a better man."
Such a great song - Tuesdays are sad again!!
