This song is inspired by guitar virtuoso Steve Vai (guitar hero of mine). It’s called Tree of Life. Usually I get a bit bored with writing longer songs but this song was different. Like Johnny Runner, the melody practically wrote itself. When you build you have to start with a good foundation. I think both JR and Tree of Life are like that which made it easier to write something interesting.

Sign up on the mailing list to receive new posts and songs. Each week I’ll be posting a new song and brief summary behind the song for my upcoming album, Love Only Knows.
Each song will be posted to SoundCloud (unmastered and medium-fi). When the album is finished it will be professionally mastered for iTunes. A limited number of copies of the CD will be available. The release date is set for March.
