Why is it that a songwriter can sum up my feelings so perfectly with their lyrics.
"Circumstances change, separation stays the same, I can't wait 'til we're together."
"We built our sails to catch the wind . . ."
"Your life turns pages each and every day . . ."
"If you try you can take me with you, in your heart and memories . . ."
This holds true with a songwriter I'm very proud of,
I guess my relationship with Lane goes all the way back to, oh I don't know, her birth! Lane and I are cousins so I've never not known her (well except for the few years I was alive before she was born). Anyway, she is EXTREMELYtalented! And she has finally decided to share that talent with the world through her recently released album, Patchwork Memories.
The Lord has blessed us with a very tight knit family. Family gatherings are a common occurrence in which we often beg her to sing. There is often a silly song moment where she entertains my nephews. And if she's playing at a local venue you better believe we're there to cheer her on. We've been lucky enough to enjoy her talent for the past several years and to watch her grow as a musician.
Plus, B and I were honored to have her sing at our wedding.
She came by a couple of weeks ago and I peppered her with questions so you could get to know her a little bit better.
What is your favorite song on the album?
No Sorrows. It came together in a fun way in the studio and I have actually been singing the tune for years. It has the exact feel of what I wanted and it's fun to perform.
What song was the hardest to write?
Patchwork Memories. It was not a personal experience making it difficult to write. I was writing for a friend but I wanted everyone to identify with it.
What's the hardest thing about songwriting?
Being confident in your work knowing that someone else is going to hear it.
What's your favorite nail polish color?
OPI On Collins Avenue and Fall You Don't Know Jacques
What book are you reading?
Dan Brown's Angels and Demons
You have a new apartment that I know you've thoroughly enjoyed decorating. What's your favorite item in your house?
Other than my cat, Poppy, my Karastan Rug. It's so soft, plush and the perfect burnt persimmon color.
There are a few items every girl can't leave the house without. What is your item?
My Swiss Army tool. My dad gave it to me and it has everything. If it's not in my purse, it's in my pocket.
So, what are you waiting for, buy the CD!
Patchwork Memories is available at the Cunningham Hardware Cafe, Carlisle Weekly, and Davis Brothers Farms. Or you can contact Brooke, Lane, or me.
