Soon The Daylight//Week 9

This is a Behind The Sun track and was initially issued on an album called Paper Airplane (2011). Those songs are currently being heard in a documentary about Chris Drew and his fight for free speech on the streets of Chicago. I generally don’t go political, but I was pretty floored when I heard the story that this song is based on. My hope is that you’ll all think about the way our troops are treated when they get home by the people you elect – RIGHT AND LEFT – and make some noise for heavy change. THAT is being patriotic.

Featured on this track is Paul Akers on piano. We haven’t made music together since concert band at Arlington High School in 1997. I can’t speak for him, but for me this was certainly more fun. He sounds great on this thing.
