Why did I write a song about a rain storm? You can watch a live introduction to the song in this video (taped at the 1200-seat Knight Theatre). Last spring I performed the title track of my EP "Something True" at the "Tosco Music Party"--a quarterly showcase of regional and national musicians and bands hosted by John Tosco (who introduces me).
The image of a rainstorm across a long valley in Montana inspired the song. Because it is so dry in most of the northwest, sometimes the rain will evaporate before it hits the ground. The poignancy of that image made me reflect on human relationships and how hard it can be to give and get the words and support we so desperately need.
I love the way the talented graphic artist, Matthew Fleming, incorporated a photo of a rainstorm (with rain evaporating) on the back cover of my cd (in the song list) and again on the front cover (in the logo). (An excellent reason to purchase the cd! Email me and I'll send you one....firstname.lastname@example.org).
