I’ve seen a lot of fan fundings and most of it focuses on prizes and funny videos and so forth. When I started playing new songs live, people came up to me with looks on their faces that I have never seen before. I’m not saying I wrote the new Let it Be (I wrote the new abbey road!) but I could just sort of see the same resonance in them that I felt in myself when I wrote them. A man in indianapolis who had been joking around with me before the show came up after with a straight face and said “Your words gave me direction, thank you” and just walked away. So I figured this has gotta be at the heart of it all. So here’s something I never do, (being that I am a perfectionist) I am posting a good chunk of the demos (Bare-bones straight to iPhone) for “From Your Bones” and if they resonate with you, if you find a tune that’s YOUR song, pledge. That simple.
