Ah! I don't have a specific amount, please shoot me an email at email@example.com with what you have in mind, what city etc.
In the fall! Where should I go?
There was an intense solar eclipse across the States. , the night before I was all worried it was going to be the end of the world and I was working on this really long doomsday esque lyric. I figured I should give a stab at singing it for two friends I was with just in case the world ended.
Don't know if theres a tab, I play in G capo 5 I believe. G - Bm - Am - G - D
Hey corey! I’ve been listening to your music for some time now and all of your songs have so much depth that sometimes I can hardly even understand. Recently, music in general is just written to make money but yours is so much more than that and I truly appreciate it for everything it is. That being said I have a couple random and unrelated questions for you.
1. You’ve commented on Christianity in most of your songs and said that you have kind of abandoned the ritual parts of it but I guess I was wondering if you still believe that God is there and if you still follow him?
2. What exactly is the meaning behind ‘Whale Song’? Very beautiful, but very deep.
3. The end of ‘Rosanna’ there is a young man talking and I’ve listened to it so many times, I think I memorized it, I was wondering if it was the Joseph mentioned in the song? If this is too personal it’s okay if you don’t want to talk about it. Totally understand
4. How old are you?
Nah I'm only in this for the cash!
Kidding of course. Yeah I don't really consider myself a "christian" these days. It's been a long journey to even be able to say that, but the more I've abandoned the titles and the organization of spirituality, the more I've been able to experience it. I read a lot, I'm even reading a book by a Christian Mystic right now hoping to rebuild a more concrete understanding, but for now I find a lot of peace looking for God outside of any specific church.
I think Whale Song is a little all over the place, Its kind of a break up song with a lot of cosmic undertones and comments on timing and stuff.
3. Was just talking about this with one of my best buds (we met through Joe). It is his voice. Its a goodnight voicememo he left to an old girlfriend before he passed. He was just talking about going on a trip someday and I loved the casualness of it. That song is immensely personal and I truly miss him so much, but sharing helps the grief.
I'm 23 :)
Shoot I think its in the key of F on the record? Maybe G.... I think I play it in G these days
C G D G (G7)
C Em D G G7
C G D
C Em D
So I guess its really the same progression the entire song! Hope that helps I play by ear and can never really remember what I'm doing unless I've got a guitar in my hands haha.
I've been listening to your music for about a month, and I have to say, it's some of the most vulnerable, honest, deeply powerful and moving music I've heard. Thank you for being so real. I know I'm probably echoing so many when I say this, but I heard "Doubter's Prayer" at a time where I was struggling with my own faith, while also leading worship weekly at a church group at my school. I just want to thank you for that brutally honest song that made me recognize that I am not the only person questioning what I believe.
Anyways, what's something you're looking forward over the summer?
Thanks for listening and opening your mind to the ideas in there. Happy to be a part of your journey.
I'm looking forward to laying low in Florida and resting. Feeling totally worn out from the last two records, and need some chill time to recharge. :)
Take it easy!
Firstly, I want to thank you for your music. I hope hearing that never loses its significance. “Doubter’s Prayer” saved me at one of my lowest points with depression and I can’t thank you enough for penning the words that stitched up my soul. At the risk of getting a bit too heavy, I’d like to say as someone who grapples with her faith daily—no matter what I pray and what I’m told I should believe—it’s healing to hear that you’re not alone in your struggles.
Secondly, and less heavy, are you a Pisces? I feel like you’re a Pisces.
Thirdly, I live in an area outside of Chicago with a lot of fun breweries and coffee shops with live music. What’s the best way to go about putting a bug in the establishment’s ear about your music, supposing you’d be open to a smaller venue?
Take care of yourself and thank you for YOU!
Thanks for sharing Jen. Truthfully, I feel like I lose the ability to see my music as significant at all daily and little messages like this often help keep me going. Thank you for the encouragement. I love that sentiment and agree. We all just kinda want to know that we aren't alone with our thoughts I suppose.
I think I'm a Leo? I get kind of confused about all those different things to be honest. Why do you feel like I'm a Pisces?
Unfortunately there is no establishment for you to place a bug into the ear of. Just me and an old pal that does all the management. We aren't actively booking right now (I need a break), but as soon as we are I'll definitely keep that area in mind. (Smaller venues are perfect my shows are generally 50-100 people).
Thanks for your kindness. New record tonight at midnight! :)
