Through These Fading Years…[The Story Behind Crowded Rooms]

Our new single, Crowded Rooms, is a song I wrote two-and-a-half years ago in the middle of a really lonely period of my life. I found myself surrounded by people who I loved and who loved me, yet I still felt so detached from everyone and everything. I was all alone.

So, how did this happen? Isn’t loneliness just a feeling we experience when we’re all alone?

We all walk a different road in this life, you’ve faced things I never will, and vice versa, but “we both bleed the same.” I want to see us come together, to be there for one another, because when we inevitability fall, we will need each other’s help to rise again. (Really, there is no such thing as a “self-made” or “independent” person [exception: Robinson Crusoe and Tom Hanks…])

Rather than place the blame, Crowded Rooms is a call to myself first, then to you, to come out of isolation, asking the question “won’t you please just walk with me through these fading years?”

Maybe Crowded Rooms is your song right now to the people around you…. Or maybe it’s a call from your spouse. Your sister or brother. Your friend. The local coffeehouse barista. Maybe it’s a call from God to you.
